Saturday I did great. I ate well and d got in all my water and spent time outdoors.
Sunday... different story. I started the day well, and I did get in all my water... but... we ate dinner at my inlaws. Being on Atkins, I had kind of a difficult time choosing what to eat, but settled on green beans, squash (had to pick out the potatoes) and a little of the roast meat (which was covered in a cream soup gravy and they were serving it on rice... I had to pick out a few pieces of meat). I didn't eat very much at all, but I was happy because she had made jello and said it was sugar free... After eating a large serving of the jello, my dh asked again about it being sugar free, and she said, no, it's not, it's the sugared kind. I could've cried! I'd been over 2 weeks without eating any sugar!!! That kinda ruined the whole day for me... While I didn't eat a lot.. I ate the wrong things.. Didn't eat supper after that, but did eat a large bowl of popcorn.
Monday we had a fish fry and I ate it all. Fish, fries, slaw, beans and dessert too. :( Still, I got in over 80 oz of water.
I felt horrible Sunday and all day Monday. I feel so much better when I know I'm doing well. And today I begin again.

Posting to get this out of my system... hopefully!
My son, who worked harder to bring up grades, who also went to school not feeling well to keep his absences as minimal as possilbe, all to be exempt from semester tests, has to take some of them afterall. I checked him out early one day, to go take his driving test and get his license. *I* checked him out, signed the sheet myself, telling the office where we were going. All seemed fine and dandy. TODAY... he finds out that that half day has been unexcused because I didn't write a "he was absent because..." note. It doesn't matter what your grades are, unexcused absence = take semester test. So I went to the principal and told him I didn't know he needed a note when I'm the one who checked him out, and when the office was already told why I checked him out. He said a note has to be in the file... fine, I said I'd write one, he said it's too late and shows me in the "handbook" where it says that a student has 5 days after an absence to bring in a note. I told him it didn't specify that if a student is checked out half a day by his parent that a note is still needed. He says that my son has to take the tests. and walks off. The secretary, who is a nice lady, apologized and says she can't do anything because she has to go by the rulebook... I tell her "you know what I think they can do with that rulebook" but assure her that she's not the one I'm frustrated with. What's more, is that this principal has such an arrogant look on his face the whole time. Like he enjoys the authority he has over kids, especially when he can do something right for them, but smugly doesn't... He's such a rear-end oriface!!! All he would have to do is accept the note from me and put it in my son's file... He already knows it's a legitimate excuse and it would change my son from having to take these tests to being exempt. But no. And now I have to encourage my furious son to calm down, and to do his best on the tests because they are worth 1/4 of his grade for the semester.

A losing streak I reckon is what I had there for a few days... may be water weight, but hey, it's still excess weight. Yesterday moring I was down another pound to 218.5, and this morning I'm the same. I know I shouldn't hope for a pound a day.... but well, that's how it was going there for a bit it seemed. Now I should probably change weigh days to once a week... if I can. I know I will see even better results if I can get in some exercise and eat a few more calories. Don't want myself to think I'm starving myself :)

I'm really surprised about this, but I'm down another pound this morning. 223! Yep, I entered it in and changed my ticker :)
I've got that losing feeling! :)

Yesterday morning I weighed 228 on my scales, this morning I weighed 224. I stepped on the scales again because I didn't believe it! Yep, still read 224. I'm a bit skeptical, so I may wait a day or two before I change my ticker ... maybe :)
