Happy Saturday everyone!
First let me start off by saying that even though this is week 104, it isn't my 2 year anniversary. When I started here my weigh in days were on Monday for the first ten weeks due to being in a local biggest loser contest. After ten weeks I switched to Saturday weigh ins because it made more sense for me. So my actual 2 year anniversary isn't until the 12th of April, the day before my week 105 weigh in.
This week, much like many of my weeks in recent memory, was an up and down week, mostly up! It started off with last Sunday (Easter) being my birthday, which meant I had Saturday and Sunday both as off days, pizza being consumed each day. For dessert on my birthday I had cherry pudding pie, a delicious concoction that has cherries and enough sugar to make an oompa loompa comatose! Of course there was enough leftover cherry pudding pie that I had a serving each night for several days! But hey, it was my birthday :)
I got plenty of fitness minutes in, but at the end of the week it wasn't enough to win the battle of the scale for the week. On to the numbers;
Weight : 214.0
Gain : 1.0
Total : 103.2
So I gained 1 lb for the week. I'm ok with it, I ate some of my favorite food and took in a lot of sugar. It's not the end of the world! Besides, I'm getting used to being up one week then down the next.
On the plus side I did get another class finished up this week, Basic Business Accounting and Information Technology (or something like that!), another 6 units done! I have 2 months left in the term, but I don't think I'll take on another class right now, I'll just wait until the next term starts. I have four 2 unit classes left which all have a lot of writing involved, a 6 unit class that only has a big exam to pass then it's on to the two 9 unit classes that will finish my degree! There's an outside chance that I will be done by December, but it will, in all reality, probably be closer to this time next year before I finish up.
So that's all I have for now. May you all have a wonderful weekend!

Well this week was kind of an up and down week for me. Started off going well then all of a sudden my weight started going back up, despite being careful of what I was eating (sodium, sugar, etc). I was getting my minutes in but there was some sort of rebellion going on inside me!
At first I was troubled by this, because it was looking like I was going to, once again, post a gain instead of a loss. But I decided to just do what I could, and let the chips fall where they may. I know that sometimes our bodies will do things that seem to defy all logic and maybe this week was just going to have be put under the label of "bodies do weird things".
When I stepped on the scale this morning I ended up with a small loss (hooray!), nothing to brag about, but still a move in the right direction. I fully expect next week to be posting a gain, so I'll take this small loss with a smile.
Weight : 213.0
Loss : .4
Total : 104.2
213.0 is my new lowest weight! Not by much though because I was 213.2 two weeks ago, but still it's a new low.
Tonight I will be going out to a dance club, completely unlike me I know , but yesterday was the birthday of a friend of mine (42) and tomorrow (Easter) is my birthday (43). So my friend has invited a bunch of people to go dancing and since it's my birthday too, she talked me into going out also. Wish me luck!
Happy Easter, Happy Passover or Happy End of March to everyone!

So ends another week. I had a better week this time around. So many encouraging comments from my friends here on Spark, really lifted my spirits. Thank you all.
So this week my diet was still pretty sporadic, although I kept a pretty close eye on my calorie intake, my ratios (carb, fat protein) weren't where I wanted them; that is of course all my doing, there's no way to blame anything else but myself for that! So once again, I will try to do better with my diet.
I got some decent gym time in this week, 300 minutes I think. I have a treadmill here at home, not a super fancy one, but it did cost me around $400 when I bought it a few years back. It sits out on my patio pretty much unused. I'm thinking about turning it to face an old cupboard that's out there and putting a t.v. and dvd player in the cupboard. I can go out there, throw in a movie and just walk. Killing 2 birds with one stone, so to speak, since I enjoy watching movies and want to walk more. At least that way the treadmill will get some use and I may be able to drop my gym membership ($54.99 a month). It's something to think about!
Anyway, let's get to the numbers for this week:
Weight : 213.4
Lost : 1.4
Total : 103.8
Hooray! I lost almost all of last week's gain :) I was really hoping all week to maintain or drop just a small amount, so when I got on the scale this morning and saw the 1.4 lb loss, I was shocked, happy shocked. Now comes the challenge, to post another loss next Saturday. Hopefully I'll be able to lose two weeks in a row!
I sincerely hope all of you out there in Spark land have a wonderful weekend :)

So after a really good week 100, I rebounded to a sub par week 101 :( All my fault, my diet has been all over the place, been distracted by what seems to be a thousand other things and overall just not been happy. Truth be told, I haven't been happy for a very long time, I've just gotten real good at faking it so people won't constantly ask me "what's wrong?".
Please don't take what I've written here as me crying out for help, it's just a factual admission, I'm not a happy person. I am pleasant enough, I have friends and I can have a good time, I just don't remember the last time that I was filled with happiness, warmed with good feelings, etc.
Anyway. So yeah, this week pretty much sucked. On to the numbers.
Weight : 214.8
Gain : 1.6
Total : 102.4
Yep, up 1.6 lbs, almost entirely wiping out last weeks loss of 2 pounds. Such is life. No big meals planned for today either. Usually head out and have a big lunch with my son, but we had a funeral to go to at 11 am and I had a small sandwich afterward with some fruit. At least by not having the big lunch I may give myself a small head start for next week.

Wow, week 100 already. Last week I received a comment on my blog post from AHTRAP that asked what I had planned for my 100th week... the thought of this being week 100 hadn't even crossed my mind! But I decided to put as much effort as I could afford into this week, just to try and make it a little special.
I kept my calories in check (although still not eating real clean) and put in 300 fitness minutes. I am happy to report a loss for the week. Let's check the numbers, shall we?
Weight : 213.2
Lost : 2.0
Total : 104
Yep, a 2 lb loss for week 100! Plus, a new record low for me as my last lowest point was 214.4. Overall I'm pretty darn satisfied with how this week turned out. Now I'm going to go enjoy some KFC and spend the rest of the evening relaxing and hanging out with a friend.
May you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend and a great next week :)
