Weekly weigh-in!

Well ladies, it is Monday, which means it's WI day for me! I weighed in this morning and I was 204! That is 2 pounds down from last Monday, for a total of 11 pounds! I can't tell you guys how happy I am! I feel like I am FINALLY in a good groove right now, and I feel like nothing can stop me! I am enjoying it while I can, because I know it's a matter of time before I go through a "valley" instead of being on the "mountaintop!" I think giving up sweets for the month has REALLY helped me! I feel like I have more points each day because I'm not wasting 8 of them on 1 brownie! I miss them, don't get me wrong...but I think it has really helped my weight loss. After the month is up, I'd like to maybe go to having them 1 day a week or something, instead of just diving back into sweets full force! I would love more than ANYTHING to lose 34 more pounds by November, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up. If I lose a pound a week up until my vacation, I could be down 24 more pounds, so I decided I would be happy with that! :-) How did your past week go? I'd love to hear about it!

Great day!

I don't have a lot of time, cause I'm headed to bed! My son has been waking up at 5:30am so by 8pm, I am shot! I just had to share my weekly weigh-in with you all. I weighed 206 this morning! That is 3.5 pounds down from last week, and a total of 9 pounds since I "started." I was so happy! I will post something more exciting tomorrow, along with my new favorite recipe!! Hope you all had a great day!

I'm here!

Hello dear followers! How was your Mother's Day? Mine went well...of course enjoyed some good food, and took a nap! Oh yeah, and scrubbed my bathroom, washed dishes, swept, gave kids baths, etc! ;-)
Today is Monday, so of course, time to weigh in. I weighed 209.5 this morning, which is one pound down from last week. I'll take it, honestly, after all the Chinese food I ate yesterday! One pound at a time....
One other thing I have to I started my 4 weeks of no sweets! I decided that I needed to just take a few weeks, and get rid of all the chocolate and junk I love so much. Even though I count it in my points, I'm sure I could be making wiser choices. I know the first week is going to be you look through any of my food logs each day, you will see that there is something chocolate AT LEAST once a day! We will see how it goes!
Hope you all had a great weekend! Now to go catch up on all of your blogs.... :-)

The Good....actually, just the Bad and the Ugly

Why do I not remember when I'm eating "bad" food, how bad I will feel about it later? Ugh...Thursday through Sunday were 4 bad days. I was very depressed when I weighed in today, and was 210.5. Even though I was sick last week, so "technically" I probably only gained 2 pounds, but the scale says I am up 4. Wow. We got our family pictures taken yesterday for our church directory, and it was such a wakeup call. I looked at them afterwards, and wanted to cry. There is no reason for me to be fat, besides me not having self control. Plain and simple. I need to just buckle down, grow up, and just lose this weight. I refuse to be fat when we take our family vacation to Florida in November. I don't want to look back at every picture with my kids at Disney World, and not see the fun times, but only see myself looking huge. I WILL feel better about myself 6 months from now. I need all of your help though to keep me on track. I am going to start doing the 30 day shred again tomorrow...I won't be able to do it every day, but I am going to try to do it as often as possible. I am done for tonight. Pray for me as I continue this long, long journey!
