Ok... I weighed in and... I'm up a pound from Saturday. bummer. Thought I'd be down a pound at least and a half pound ahead of my goal, but NO... I'm a pound up and so therefore 1.5 pounds behind my goal... Grrrrrrr!
OK... maybe the scales aren't truthful again, maybe I'm retaining water, I have had swollen ankles all week, but I did drink a LOT of water. Maybe I just need to go to the bathroom LOL (tmi? sorry) Maybe I didn't hold my mouth right... or would my one BAD day this week still be showing up on the scales? That was Monday! that would sooooo not be fair cause I got right back on track and stayed in my personal numbers range. Ok... that's not totally true actually. I've not gotten in ANY exercise this week. Rain rain rain and just didn't feel like the treadmill.... **sigh** Most likely it's a combination of it all. I think I'll go back to my daily weigh ins...
Overall, this is not a deterrent to my dieting. It's a bummer, yes, but I will work harder to make up for my being behind and catch up to where I should be. I'll keep updating.
First week of school was hectic, it will take a while for us to establish a good working routine... trial and error.
I'm not gone, so please don't forget me LOL! I'll be popping in now and then to track and if I have time to post a little, but like I said... no routine and with 4 kids and homework already... I am totally pooped by 8! :)
today 192 (goal was 190.5! all I had to do was lose a measly half pound this week... but nooooo... I GAINED a pound. :(

Well, go figure. I did pretty good all week and to what end? A one pound GAIN. What gives? Well, actually I know what it is. Today is first day of tom. So, I'm really not accepting this weigh in. I'm not changing my ticker and I'm not going to let this get to me. I KNOW the reason for it. I can't drink enough water to rid myself of the fluid retention I suffer through during this time. I'm going to keep on keeping on and next weigh in will hopefully be more truthful... oh, btw, due to the encouragement of a good friend, I have measured and did learn that overall, I've lost nearly 2 inches this week. That's a plus.
Hugs to all my sparkfriends!
8/16/08 update.... I weighed in this morning, just curious at where day 2 of tom puts me... expecting to be the same, or maybe even up, and to my joyous surprise... I was down 2.5 pounds from yesterday! 191.0!! wow. That looks a lot better, and I'm back on track to meet my weekly goals! Woohoo!

Aloha everyone! Thank you all so much for supporting me in my new beginning! It's going great! I have lost 4 pounds this week and I've exercised every day except Sunday, and gotten in tons of water.
It's paying off! I'm feeling so much better about myself and my clothes are already feeling better. I wore something yesterday that was too tight to wear in public just 2 weeks ago!
I'm holding on to my momentum and thankful for God helping me every step of the way. When I think I have no willpower left, He supplies it. :)
And I need it today! I'm baking my youngest's birthday cake today, a chocolate turtle. When I'm done, I reckon I'll post up a pic of it. Anyhow, anyone who knows me knows about my love of chocolate! I am stronger tho and will not mess up my focus, my perfect week or my drive! I'm on a roll!
Y'all are all such a wonderful source of encouragement and support! I'm loving my sparkfriends and hope all my newly found determination and stick-to-it-ness rub off on y'all!
My secret for doing well this week is no secret... it's stubborn determination, I-ain't-messin'-up-again attitude, sparkpeople and God.

Aloha all my sparkfriends!
I'm sending y'all this message for my own accounability. I figure if I proclaim this "loudly" I'm more likely to stay focused. :) I'm posting this message as a blog, too.
I've really been off track for the past few months. I would have a few days or even a couple of weeks of doing well, and then blow it. The trend seems to be to do well for the first half of each month then blow the second half so bad that I've been taking steps backwards overall. In other words... gaining.
Well, it's time for me to stop that. I've decided that I have a choice to make... either I'm going to lose this weight and reach my goal or I'm not... and I've decided that NOT is NOT an option.
So here I am confessing my blunder and my new determination to succeed and stay focused.
I'll be weighing tomorrow morning. I'm scared to report the number, but that will be my first step... to fess up not only to my bad eating and going off plan so often, but to also fess up the dreaded scale's number. I've not weighed in about 2 weeks... It wasn't pretty then, and I've done really bad lately. But I will post my number as I did when I first began... because I am beginning again.
Well, I've twisted your ear plenty :)
Hold me accountable!
Wish me luck!
and bless you all!
PS... the pic above was my first motivational collage. I've not looked at it in months, but I should have. It represents very good reasons why I'm going to reach my goal. I think I'll make a new one, just for the fun of it and because, well, I am starting over... this is my new beginning.

Busy busy busy!
Well, VBS went great, we averaged 120 kids every night! That's a lot of kids :) and I am pooped! But it was wonderful.
Now, we're about to take off on some remodeling of our house. One thing after another, but it's all great! Life is good.
Anyhow, I"ll be on and off sparsley (is that a word?) cause I"ll be so busy and then so tired and so on...
I'm finally back on track diet wise. Today is Day 2 of Induction (again) and so far so good!
Hugs to all my sparkfriends!
