Weekly weigh-in!

Happy Monday! I weighed in yesterday and was 202.5. That is 1.5 pounds gone this past week! Whoohoo! I'm thinking now that I won't make it to 199.5 by Sunday, but I'm ok. I changed my goal for next week to WI at 201. I would be happy with that!
I was so proud of myself this week! Because of Sunday being my "Cheat and Sweet" day, I try to do perfect on plan the rest of the week. I also am not letting myself change my cheat day to another day of the week if i have something going on. I want to just keep it to Sunday, no matter what. Saturday I went to an amusement park with my husband and my two girls. We had so much fun! Besides walking around for 9 hours straight, I did over 1,500 steps! It was 80 steps every time we went up to the water we just counted how many times we did it! I was TIRED afterwards!! We went with his work, so they had free food...including ice cream! I didn't have any though! The hardest thing was to not get any soft serve ice cream or fried dough! :-) I just kept reminding myself that I could have something sweet the next day! Yesterday for my cheat day, I had a leftover frozen piece of Toll House pie, and a Frozen Hot Chocolate from Dunkin Donuts! It was AMAZING!!! I had been wanting to try one for so long! Today is back to the plan...started with my Fiber One Honey cereal, and a piece of toast. Hoping for another good week!!!

P.S. Have you guys tried the Fiber One brownies? They come in Chocolate Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Peanut Butter. I am officially addicted to them. If you go on the Fiber One website, you can print out a 75 cents off coupon for them. They are only 2 POINT PLUS!!!! I seriously have about 10 boxes of them in my freezer! :-)

Good Morning!

Hello my faithful 13! :-) I wanted to let you all know that I weighed in on Sunday, and I was 204. Now to you guys, that is down 1/2 pound from 2 weeks ago, BUT, last Tuesday I weighed 207.5 from pigging out for 2 weeks, so I really lost 3.5 in 4 days! :-) I was pretty happy with that. I need to just stay motivated so I can lose the last 5 I need to, in order to get to the 100's. Then I can start working to the next small goal I've made...getting out of the 190s! I figure I should just take it 10 pounds at a time, instead of having such a HUGE goal of losing 35 pounds!
It went really well having Sunday be my "Cheat and Sweets" day. ( Catchy name...don't you think? :-) It was so nice to have a day that I gave myself permission to indulge and enjoy myself...because then I didn't feel guilty about it afterwards. I made Toll House Pie, and enjoyed it immensely! You know what though? I thought that having sweets and stuff would make me want them on Monday, but I think it did the opposite! Yesterday I went to a birthday party, and they had yummy cake with tons of frosting, and I wasn't even tempted. I was just thinking of what dessert I could make this coming Sunday that would be even BETTER than that, and how good I would feel eating it, if I felt I did good all week. I don't know if this makes any sense to you guys...haha...but I really feel like it is working for me right now.
I also wanted to start something new on here. I would like to set a 2 week goal, every 2 weeks. ( OBVIOUSLY! :-) My 2 week goal from this past Sunday, is to be 199 on July 3rd. I know that is 2.5 pounds a week, but I'm going to shoot for it. If I don't, then hopefully I can do it in 3 weeks. I'm not going to beat myself up about it if I don't do it, but I like having a goal!

What would you like to accomplish in the next 2 weeks? I'd love to hear!

Sorry it has been so long since I've posted. There are many reasons...I have been EXTREMELY busy, and honestly, the past 2 weeks were not good for me. Just as I expected, once I "went back on sugar" I went crazy. Ate more than usual whenever I was around sweets. I'm not going to was bad. I decided yesterday that I needed to put it to a stop before I got out of control. I decided that I am only going to have sweets on Sundays. One day a week. That way, I don't deprive myself completly, so I go CRAZY when I do have them, but I will limit my damage to just one day. We will see how it goes. I did not weigh in this week because I wanted to give myself the 5 days of doing good before I had an "official" weigh in. I need to just crack vacation is only 5 months away, and I refuse to look like this when we go.
I'm sorry to my followers...this blog is just me "doing good" and then "doing bad" and then "doing good" and then "doing bad" again. I'm sorry I'm not more of an encouragement to you all, like you deserve. I'm really trying my best! Stay with me, please? :-)

Ok, just to let you all know, I changed my WI day to Sundays now. I just think it is going to work out better for me overall, even though I may not have the time to post the results until Monday.

So I have NO idea how this can even be, since I have eaten everything in sight for the past 10 days, but when I weighed in yesterday, I was 204.5. Yup, up 1/2 pound from 2 weeks ago. I'm afraid all that food I ate is going to eventually show up on the scale or something...but maybe I will get lucky and it won't. I'm so close to "ONE-derland" I can smell it, and I want it so bad! By July 1st, I would really like to be at least 199! I will try posting here more often to keep myself accountable. It was a crazy 2 weeks...2 of my best friends came home to NY, with their after a year of being gone and the other after 2 years of being in Africa! We have been so busy catching up, having sleepovers with our kids, and partying! :-) Hopefully things will slow down a little bit now!

Thanks for all the encouraging words yesterday! Tania, I will take on that challenge with you to only eat my DP each day! It is not going to be easy for me, but I will try my VERY best! :-)

Member that whole "mountaintop" I was on last week....yeah....well....that is over. I think I fell off it...maybe 1000 feet down. Since last Thursday, I have done horrible. HORRIBLE. It started with a birthday party, and every day since then has been some event. Between Memorial Day weekend, sleepovers with friends, and eating out, I have done nothing but eat like a pig for 8 days. I'm so ashamed. I haven't weighed myself, cause I know I'm probably up 5 or 6 pounds. I gain it so fast when I have a bad week, even if it is only 8 days. I NEED to start again's just so hard "getting back into it" after a bad week.
I'm so sorry I let you all down.....
