Got some video of the ominous clouds, but the aren't nearly as creepy recorded as they were in person! the lower clouds and the higher clouds were moving in different directions... you can't really see that in this, I reckon I moved the camera too much. It's calm now, but we're still under a tornado watch.. we have more to look forward to tonight.

OMGosh, it's been one of those weeks. I have been emotional, weepy, forgetful, worried, and occasionally elated... go figure... tom's here this week, too. Oh really? I couldn't tell. **sigh** ;)
So much for my intentions on NOT using the weekly points last week. I used up every one of them! And I was so scared to weigh in... with tom, all the eating, all the issues. I just knew it was going to blow.
But I did it.... and to my sheer surprise, lost 2.5 lbs. So I am finally back on the weight loss wagon. That made me happy.
Also, what happened that was good this week: my daughter did well on an oral book report and was entered into the book pageant where she has to dress up and act out a little part of something from the book along with giving her report again... She's Arya from Eragon. :) and she looked adorable. I should've got a pic! Dang... just another forgetful thing. I will when she does this again for the pageant.
I also finally tried the Hula workout I got from Netflix... wow, that is some workout and I CAN DO IT! I can do those moves. Now... I didn't finish the workout cause I got pooped. But I really liked it a lot, so I ordered it from Amazon. :) Can't wait for it to come in (I would have just copied the one from Netflix, but my burning software is on the fritz... besides, the DVD was just $5.)
Anyhow, I'm really hoping next week is much better than this week was!
Week 1: -5 (5)
Week 2: -5 (10)
Week 3: -4.5 (14.5)
Week 4: +6.5 (8)
Week 5: -6 (14)
Week 6: -2.5 (16.5)

Well, did I really expect to continue to lose 5 lbs per week? Really now... one had hopes, but last week I didn't do anything right to lose any weight whatsoever. Matter of factly... I"m genuinely scared to step on the scale for fear of gain. I've yet to even take a peek.
See, last week I seemed to be so hungry. I didn't go over points.... until Thursday that is. And I went way over. When I mess up, I mess up big... and I seem to do it doubles. The first mess up: Chinese Buffet. I didn't have a plan when I went in, other than my mind set that I need to make sure I get my money's worth. :/ The second mess up was pizza last night. I did have plan there. I have eaten pizza every Friday night this whole time... and still lost weight, but some old stinkin' thinkin' invaded my brain... "oh well, I messed up this week already, might as well and eat as much pizza as I can hold and start over tomorrow" and my plan went bye-bye.
So, here I am this morning, feeling very heavy, bloated and swollen (I retain water very easily) and scared to weigh. I gain much more easily than I lose.
Are these feelings I'm having now... feelings of failure, fear of the scales, and total disappointment with myself... worth pigging on pizza or "getting my money's worth" at a Chinese buffet? Completely, totally, and absolutely NOT. So.. why in the world did I do it? ugh. I lost focus. I didn't think past the food or the moment.
Oh well. I screwed up, wasn't the first time, won't be the last... I need to see what kind of damage I did, suck it up, and fix it.
Going to weigh now (long pause here that you won't notice.)
Its worse than I thought. I'm up 6.5 lbs. But no tears here. I would definitely kick my own butt, literally, if I could, but what I can do is get mad, get back on track, and get off this excess weight as fast as possible. I'm pretty certain that it's manly fluid retention. So... this week's goal is to rid myself of that, and lose a little more to boot.
Last week I was 14.5 lbs down, by next Saturday I want to be at least 16 lbs down total. I can do this.
4-10 update... I weighed this morning and I'm already back down by 3 lbs!!!

This week I felt like I had gained weight. I have been feeling heavy, bloated, not been drinking my water like I should, and I feel like I've been eating the door off the fridge. So much so that I was even scared to do my sneak weigh in mid week and I was scared this morning, too. But I did it, and imagine my surprise at what I discovered..... I lost 4.5 lbs since last Saturday! Yes!!!!!
Week 3 loss - 4.5 lbs
Total loss so far - 14.5 lbs
