Friday Weigh-In

Even though I haven't been blogging, I still weigh myself every Friday. I've been plateaued around the 193 lb marker for a long while now.  I have certainly learned HOW TO MAINTAIN. LOL.

I haven't been to the gym in about 3 weeks. My new job continues to be a constant source of stress. I am eating entirely too many carbs. I have not been getting enough sleep. I don't drink enough throughout the day. I took a multivitamin today for the first time in a month.
Every day I tell myself it will be different. Every night I plan to wake up early and go to the gym.
I haven't lost faith in myself. I know that one of these days I will get my act together. I can do this.

Friday Weigh-In


A very stressful week still, but I'm working on following the rules. This is just encouragement to do better....

Fell Off The Wagon....

    Wow, these past couple weeks have been so stressful at work. I REALLY REALLY wish I was one of those girls who JUST CAN'T EAT when they're stressed. But my reaction is the opposite: I eat everything in sight. Each night I tell myself I'll do better 'tomorrow', then tomorrow comes and I fall off the wagon again. I've been eating too much, too often, too many carbs, too much sweet tea (one waitress called it "the wine of the South" LOL). And I can't begin to tell you when my last trip to the gym was.
    But it all ended this AM. I woke up, put on my Big Girl Panties, and just took each hour at a time. I ate small portions, concentrated on proteins, small bites, chewed thoroughly, and 'whew'-- made it through the whole day without regret!!  Tomorrow I will wake, go to the gym, and continue to follow the plan.
   I've got all the tools. I know what I need to do to lose weight. I.GOT. THIS.
   Thank for reading, and thanks for your support.

Friday Weigh-In

When I am under a lot of stress, my body reacts by holding on to every ounce of weight. I am under an enormous amount of stress at work these next few weeks. Plus, I've been eating out a lot and haven't exercised as much as I should.
My plan is to just hunker down and try not to gain weight. I have no delusions of losing weight in the next few weeks.

Friday Weigh-In

This was Friday's weight....
LMFAO!!  I knew I had put on weight. My clothes are tighter, I feel flabbier.  I really ate my way through Central Pennsylvania!!  And I haven't exercised all week.

Oh well, back on track now. Watching what I eat, and heading back to the gym.

25th High School Reunion!!

I had a blast travelling to Central Pennsylvania for my 25th High School Reunion! My ConfidenceMeter was on overload, with all the compliments I received! It made me feel really really good, and just reignited my passion to get to my goal weight.

Here's the ubiquitous 'seat belt' photo that is required on all weight loss blogs!! Look how much extra belt!! I actually fit into a Southwest Airlines seat!!  If you've ever flown Southwest, you know that's saying something!!

These smiles were plastered on our faces the whole trip. Needless to say, I'm sure I gained at least five pounds. I just HAD to sample all my favorite comfort foods from Pennsylvania (read: carbs!)  I think this picture was taken after I had shown my son the joys of a 'Grilled Stickie a la Mode' from Eat-N-Park.
Hope everyone had a great week! This week is back-to-school for us!

Friday Weigh-In....NOT!

There will be no Friday Weigh-In this week, because I'll be travelling to Pennsylvania for my 25th high school reunion!  Of course, that meant shopping for new clothes! I will post pics when I get back.
