We had a reunion this past weekend, at a friend's huge cabin on a lake. About 50 people stayed the whole weekend and it was incredible! Cooking and cleaning for that many people was a real workout, not to mention all the fun-filled activities in between the cooking and cleaning!
There was a ton of delicious food there...most of it was healthy, believe it or not! And fortunately for me, most was also vegetarian! I did not keep a food diary over the weekend, as time really did not allow for it. But I did make good choices and found that I even ate less than I normally do. I'm down a couple of pounds this morning. I'm hoping it's more than water weight I've dropped! We'll see!
Anyway, coming off a great weekend and seeing the scale go in the direction I want it to go in has put me in a great mood...wonderful way to start the work week!
I hope everyone has a great week!

With the return of warmer weather, the melting of most of the snow, my drive to get healthier also returned! Yesterday I walked all over town with Kate (daughter). It felt so good! I really hope the nicer weather stays. I don't mind the rain, which is in the forecast for the next few days. As long as the sidewalks are icy or snow-covered! I'm feeling good. I'm ready to shed my winter coat!

...from tracking food in the food tracker thing...not from making the best choices I could. We ate out on Friday, but I ordered wisely. Saturday, another restaurant. Again, good choices. Yesterday I had a slice of garlic pizza...not the best, but hey...I had ONE slice...there were days when I'd have three or four!
Anyway, I'm back to tracking this morning. But I did forget to weigh in...I do it sans clothes, and since I have to leave for work in a few minutes, I'm NOT shedding my clothing now...it will wait until tomorrow morning.
I do have to run...but am feeling good...am down almost 4 pounds since February 1st...slow and steady wins the race...must remember that!

So here I am, 18 years later, exactly where I was all those years ago!
When my now nearly 20 year old daughter was approaching her second birthday I began my first serious and successful attempt to lose a significant amount of weight.
This morning I climbed on the scale and I weigh exactly what I weighed on my first weigh-in all those years ago.
Although I wish I was much lighter, I must remind myself that I'd reached almost 340 pounds over the years. I may be right where I was all those years ago, but I'm still much healthier and more fit than I was three years ago! And I'm on my way down again. With a much healthier attitude about how to make life changes instead of how to diet.
I'm an expert at losing weight. I'm an expert at gaining weight. I strive to become an expert at maintaining a healthy weight!
