Today I weighed in at 250 lbs. Up two pounds and not too bummed about it. I had a really stressful week. I ate my emotions and did little exercise. I know exactly why I gained and I know exactly how to lose. I am working on losing today.
I am using tomorrow as a vacation day from work. I don't have a plan in the world for tomorrow, and I am hoping to just relax. Knowing that I have Monday as a vacation day, I have been able to enjoy my weekend a lot more.
I am thinking that I will use tomorrow as a day to just plan out Christmas. I still have a lot of shopping to do, and little money to deal with. I need to figure out who I am done with, who I am half done with, and who I haven't bought anything for yet. My Christmas shopping hasn't been very organized this year, I think that tomorrow will be a great chance to get it together.
I changed my New Years goal from 243 lbs to 242. I now have a little over two weeks to lose 8 pounds. I know that it isn't the most realistic goal in the world, but I lost 5 pounds in one week, so I am going to give it a shot! Even if I don't get all the way down to 242 lbs by New Years, I will be one step closer. I have already made myself so happy just by not gaining weight this year. Last New Years I was 253 lbs. Right now I am 3 pounds less. That has never happened before. Truely. I have never gone a whole year without gaining anywhere from 10-30 pounds. This is a FIRST! I am already content. 242 will just be icing on the cake! 242... here I come!

Bananampampamp, another pound bites the dust... bananampampamp, another pound bites the dust. And another one gone and another one gone, another pound bites the dust. Hey, I'm gonna get you too, another pound bites the dust! Whaaatch out!
I'm down from 249 to 248 this morning. I usually do not reccommend weighing yourself daily, but since I have been on this weightloss streak, I have peaked at the scale every morning. Once I see a stand-still with my weight, or even a dreaded reverse on the scale, I will return to weighing only once weekly... but I must say... it's so much fun to watch the scale go down again! I am going to milk this jump start for all its worth! Then the real "fun" begins!
This morning I slept in until 11 a.m. It was fantastic. I haven't done that in a long time!! Right now I have BBQ Pulled Pork cooking in the crock pot. Once that is done, around 5:30, I am going to take it over to my moms and have dinner there. We are then going to start baking 13 dozen cookies for tomorrow's cookie exchange with my in-laws. This is a dangerous weekend. 13 dozen cookies! Wow! Nick and I have decided that we will be taking in a lot of the cookies to work, and maybe freezing some to give out at Christmas. I am definitely going to have the will power to stay away from them, especially if they are wrapped up in the freezer! I can do this!
Tonight's dinner is going to be high in calories. It's almost 2 p.m. now, so I am going to get some cardio in to hopefully balance the high calorie dinner that I will be having tonight. Today I am feeling a tad less motivated to exercise than yesterday, but I know that once I get on that elliptical, I will feel GREAT!

I've lost 4 pounds in 5 days and I am still losing! Yesterday I weighed in at 249.0 and today I weighed in at 248.6! It's only a fraction of a pound less, but it just goes to show that I really did lose atleast 4 pounds so far!
I'm excited to get a big jump start on the weightloss. I know that I am not going to continue with such drastic weightloss, but I always seem to see a big loss when I reccommit and start eating better and exercising routinely. I think that I see such a loss because my body is taken by surprise. The problem occurs when my body becomes use to my positive changes.
I have somewhat of a quirk, I guess I will call it for lack of better words. Here is the predicament: I am super motivated right now, but I am holding back. I feel like I could totally bust out 30 minutes a night on the elliptical, but I don't want to start big. I have been limiting myself to 10-15 minutes at a time because if I start out at 30 or 60 minutes, later down the road, in order to continue losing weight, I will have to increase my time. I like to start low time wise because to be honest, I dont want to gain weight everytime that I dont have 30-60 minutes a day to exercise. Right now I am losing weight by doing 10 minutes here or there on the elliptical, which is GREAT! That means that eventually, way down the road, when I get to 30 or 60 minutes at a time, I will continue to lose because it will be a CHANGE for my body and it will be surprised!
Thats the method to my madness.
Feel free to comment, I want to know what everyone thinks about that!
