I have inadvertantly taken a month or two off. Now that I no longer receive SP emails everyday, I no longer go the site to spin the wheel or to get my fitness points. The exercise was still happening all that time, but the time I devoted to it each day dwindled because I have kids who needed to get to school early two or three days a week. I also have gradually been eating everything not nailed down and voila! I've put on six or seven or ten pounds! My pants are uncomfortable and that has been the motivation to get serious again. I don't know if I can devote the time to post here very often, but I'm determined to turn this around. The first goal is to get back below 190. Please pray for me that I can eat reasonably at Bunco tonight and stay out of the Halloween candy on Friday. This weekend, we'll be visiting family so that will be another hurdle.

It's been a stressful and strange week. Consequently I wiped out my loss from last week with an equal gain this week. I knew I wasn't doing well, but I didn't think I had fallen off the wagon that much! Lots of back-to-school stuff this week and why is there suddenly cake everywhere I go this week? I don't even like cake that well, but I've been shoveling it in. And it all adds up. I haven't been logging as diligently as I should (time issues) and I haven't been drinking water as I should. I have been exercising, but meals have been "grad a bite and run" affairs. I hope I can be more mindful of what is going in my mouth this weekend and get back to eating more fruits and veggies and drinking water. I may have to do some cooking ahead this weekend.

I am very happy to update my weight ticker this morning. I'm back down to the weight I thought I'd go above again. Despite eating at Red Robin while back-to-school shopping yesterday, I lost two pounds this week. Still lots of work to do, for sure, but for me, success breeds success and now that I've got a spurt of losses going for me, its easier to stay on program and stay motivated.

Here's the story: I come home for lunch and find my 12-year-old daughter and her friend that slept over last night STILL ASLEEP (it's 12:05 p.m.) and the kitchen full of their dirty dishes. I was pretty angry, so after waking her up and speaking with her and laying down the law, I decided to get the heck out of there so they could clean up. I hope to be very impressed at 4:30. Stay tuned...
So I went out to lunch. Everything was crammed, so I ended up at Hardee's where the jalapeno ThickBurger looked quite tempting, but I ordered a taco salad instead.
Do you KNOW how many calories that salad has???! I never would have guessed *950*! I just looked it up on their home page. I didn't eat the sour cream (50 calories) and I didn't eat all the salad shell, but I did eat over half of it. It must be pure grease--I loved it! So I'm putting down for 840 calories--that's a Taco Bell taco salad with the shell.
This is were "angry eating" will get you. Please learn from my pitiful example.

I've been strict about logging my food now for three days. This morning was my usual morning to weigh in. This is the first time since I've been home from vacation that I weighed myself on my own scales, and the first time I've weighed in in two weeks. What I saw was a number I never want to see again...190. Boo! I should have weighed myself the morning after I got home to see how much damage I did, but I didn't have the heart for it.
