I don't know. I got on the scale Monday after gardening saturday for 2 hours, heavy gardening. The whole sweaty, dirty hard moving rocks kind. Then walked the dog for 2 miles, then went to a banquet where I danced for 6 hours PLUS ate well. Now, to be fair, I did drink quite a bit. But anyway. I got on the scale Monday and i was up like 3 pounds.So I decided to not weigh till Thursday. Today I worked for a solid 6 hours cleaning my house with my sister and kids. The dirty sweaty move furniture and clean stuff you never do kind. I have burned hella calories in the last few days. I tracked my food and I'm good even with the 3 cookies and 1 brownie I ate. I was tired, weak and fed my sugar addiction. Don't judge...lol.
Anyway I am going to do my best in the next few days because 219 is still in my head and heart. Onward to where I'm going!

But the 3 other pairs of pants I bought today sure do! Hahahahahahaha! That's me being hysterical! I got a coupon for 50 dollars off a 100 purchase at lane bryant outlet today so I went to look. I got some size 20 and some size 18's. You know me, always the optomist! So i put the 20's on and they were way big and i got the 18's and they fit perfect. I got a pair of jeans, some black skinny soft as butter pants and a pair of grey cords, I also got some new jammies, a new bra, 38c, and a cute top that I am wearing tomorrow to our race car banquet. I will take pics tomorrow. The best part was I spent 147.00 and saved over 150.00!!!!!!! So yeah I was doing the happy dance!
We are also redoing a section of my backyard so i will have some pics on Sunday for you guys...woot! Progress baby!

All I have been thinking about is 219. 219. 219. TWO NINETEEN!
I am trying to get there. I really am.
219 means I have lost MORE than 70 pounds (which is where I have been since June losing and gaining the same 5-10 pounds).
219 means I will have left the 300's, 290's, 280's, 270's, 260's, 250's, 240's, 230's and 220's behind.
219 means I am only 3 pounds away from losing 75 pounds and on my way to 80,90 and more.
219 means I am getting closer to weighing less than my husband.
I want those things. REALLY BAD!
For the last few weeks I have stepped it up. I walked a 5k for the first time ever, added back 3 day a week 1o minute excercise video's, I have been planning my dinners and tracking truthfully and if (like today), I am having a heavier dinner than usual, I plan for a healthier breakfast and lunch.
I am not going to lie and say I have been perfect (wth does that mean anyway?) but I have been mindful and in the back of my mind, I keep saying 219. I want it. I want it bad. I am trying really hard to get there. I feel if I can blast through that stupid 220 wall, I will be on my way to the rest of my weight loss.
It may take me longer than I would like, I may go up before I go down but I guarantee you, I WILL GET THERE. And beyond.
So keep watching because one day, one day really soon, you are gonna see a blog from me titled "219".
That is my chant. That is my goal. That is my mantra.

Yesterday I went and helped my neice have a garage sale and move into her new place, which is starting a fabulous new life. I lifted alot of stuff and didn't eat very well but got it done and had a good time doing it, frank was home with a cold and by the time I got home last night, he was so sweet and sincerely missed me. As you know, we don't spend alot of time part! Anyway, today I made breakfast and even tho he was still sick, we took stitchy for a walk and then came home and i made lunch. There were several hours in between all of this, lol. Kady had made cake pops and I really wanted one. I even put it in my tracker. When I went to the frig, I saw a big bag of grapes. I popped one in my mouth and it was crunchy and delicious and sweet. I got a bowl of them, came to spark and pushed delete on the cake pop and added grapes instead. Its funny how that simple act has made me feel so confidant. I can get through the rest of the day now. I'm sure of it.
