Day 64 - Weigh-In #9

Today I totally expected to have gained at least a pound.  My in-laws were visiting the last few days, so I made some bigger meals, and we went out a couple times, and wine was a necessary part of the weekend. I lost 3 pounds.  Holy crap!  I am down to 178, which also means I have lost a total of 20 pounds since January 1.  YAY!!!

I am beyond happy.  I have 8 pounds to my total goal weight.  I probably won't make it within the 90 days I had originally hoped, but I don't care about that anymore.  I just can't believe how relatively easy Weightwatchers has made this, and that I have stayed with it this long.  I'm easily distracted by shiny things, and keeping with anything for more than 2 months is a big deal for me. 

So 20 lbs down, 8 to go.  Maybe I will even work out more again.  Well, lets not get too crazy. 

This is Bobby's birthday too, so Happy Birthday to my sweet little baby who is turning exactly 1 in just 2 more hours.  Being told to 'Push Through The Pain' seems like much less than a year ago.  And with birthdays comes cake.  I already ate my way through one cake this weekend. Cupcakes tonite. More cupcakes this weekend.  I sense a lot of soup in my future to balance out all that cake.

Day 57 - Weigh-In #8

No tracking this week, and I lost a pound - down to 181.  I will totally take that, a loss is a loss.  And I CAN make decisions about food that don't involve stuffing my face with garbage without having to be a tracking fool.  Lets see if this can continue.

Day 50 - Weigh-In #7

This week I stayed at 182 and lost nothing.  But ate like a maniac and had a few drinks, so overall, pretty psyched with hitting this wall.  I can't even call it a plateau or anything, because I was just eating lot of wrong things, and only managed to make up for it by being really good at lunch time. Dang snacking at night still gets the best of me.  I cannot be trusted with cheese or chocolate in the house.  But gotta get back in to the swing of things next week.

I also fell off the wagon of tracking my points religiously - like if I didn't track it, I really hadn't eated all that crap.  But since its been a couple of days without tracking, I may try a little experiment and see if I can do it without tracking and make better decisions on my own.  Because I really proved what a responsible adult I am this week.

Day 43 - Weigh In #6

I am catching up on tracking all of this here because we got a new toy that I am rarely able to get my hands on - a Macbook Pro. And I find it annoying to blog on my iPad, not good enough on typing there.

Anyway, I lost another 1.5 lbs at this weigh in, down to 182.  I had something of a mediocre week of eating, but stayed right around my overall point allowance, so this was still good.
