Yesterday I woke up with a really nasty stomach bug. I woke up feeling all better today (so far so good anyway!). I really hate stomach bugs, they are just awful. But I must say, the one good thing about them is that between yesterday morning and this morning, the scale says I lost 4 pounds! haha. I know that that weight loss isn't actually going to stick though, but it is kinda nice to see that much of a lower number!
Also, today I am going to attempt skiing again. Assuming I can hold my breakfast. I was actually very upset yesterday at the thought of having to cancel our trip today. I am trying really hard to not get myself freaked out and nervous about falling. So, as of right now, I am still planning on going and hopefully it will be a bit more enjoyable than last time.

My most recent mini-goal was to lose 25 pounds for Valentine's day. As of yesterday, I weighed in at 24.5 pounds lost, so I'm calling that a success. Even more surprising was I stepped on the scale this morning and it went down even more- 25.4 pounds lost!!! So I am very happy. The next step is 30 pounds and it's right around the corner!
One of my hopes for losing 25 pounds for Valentine's day was so that I could fit into one of my dresses again for our dinner date. Well, that still didn't happen. I guess I bought those dresses more pounds ago than I thought! But that's ok, it was cold outside anyway, so pants worked for me, haha. I'll be able to fit into them by the time it's actually getting warm enough to wear them.
Lent should also help me out a lot. I have given up chocolate, sweets, and soda. I rarely/almost never drink soda anyway, but it will be very helpful for me to cut these things from my diet for 40 days. Looking forward to seeing the results from that. Anybody else giving things up?

So the blizzard is done. It really wasn't as bad where I live as initially expected. We got about a foot of snow, but the heavy winds and really heavy snow tapered off earlier in the night. So thankfully we didn't lose power! But I have a bit of shoveling ahead of me now.
Also, I have my laptop back! Got it back on Thursday and it is so nice having reliable internet access again. Now I can go back to using SparkPeople more regularly and when I want to instead of waiting to barrow somebody else's computer or waiting to go into work and hoping I can get on a computer there.
And I'm very happy to announce that I am finally seeing that scale moving again. After my post about losing 21 pounds, I got a bit off track. Part of that was due to not having access to SparkPeople as much as I need. But the other part is that whenever I seem to hit a milestone in my weight loss, I get a bit lazy with it. I figure that I'm doing pretty well on my own, and that I've been doing so well that I can eat a bit more, and that I don't really need to exercise as much as I had been. I did this when I lost 10 pounds as well. I actually put on a pound over the last two weeks and was having a really hard time getting just that to come back off. However, a few days ago I told myself that I can't hold myself back, that I have to keep on keeping on. I've been making a push and I was able to lose that pound I gained back and another pound on top of that, so I'm down 22 pounds! I had a goal to lose 25 pounds for Valentine's day. Don't know if that's going to happen, but that's ok because I'll be pretty darn close if it doesn't. I just gotta keep on keeping on!

Wow, so not having my laptop is making dieting and exercising very difficult!!! The computer that I barrowed from my parents decided that it didn't want to be able to go online anymore too , so internet access is limited (currently using my mom's work laptop).
What's really tough is not being able to get onto SparkPeople. I don't have the opportunity to track what I'm eating, and I have definitely noticed that my eating hasn't been so great the past few days. I also really miss reading the articles and watching videos on here. This has definitely made me realize that I am really not ready to do this all on my own! Not that I was planning to anyway, but not having SparkPeople has certainly made me realize just how much I need it.
So I suppose until I get my laptop back, it's time for me to pull myself together and put in a whole lot of extra effort and a bunch of self pep talks!!!
