1. Keep walking. (haven't done as much as I should)
2. Get the new bike. (postponing to a date to-be-determined)
3. Make extra payment on credit card to start getting balance down. (done)
4. Drop another 5#. (started this month at 235)
5/4/10. This is going to be an interesting week. Since my last weigh-in I've had difficulty making my minimum calories several times including today. I'm short 186 calories. Don't know why. I usually have the opposite problem. The scales say I gained back 3#, but I've already dropped 2 of those. Not sure if this is related to being under on the calories. I'm going to go see if I can find some peanuts or something. Update: couldn't find the peanuts, but 5 slices of angel food and 2 oatmeal cookies later (I know, I know), I did meet my daily minimum required calories.
5/6/10. Woo hoo! I did an unofficial weigh-in this morning and I'm back down to where I was at the end of last month. So by tomorrow I should be either at no gain or have lost some more. Yay! I'm being really, really good today. I was just at the store and first thing I saw was a display of Lindor candies. Yum. I picked them up, looked at them, checked the calories, put them back and walked away. On my way to checkout I passed the bakery. Saw some individual red velvet cupcakes. Ooo! I stopped...then walked on by! I'm very pleased with myself.
5/7/10. Well, I gained .6#. Could have been worse. I can probably lose .6# by Saturday. I'll have to be very, very careful if I go to the Strawberry Festival this weekend.
5/10/10. Just did an unofficial weight check. My scale is having another nervous breakdown. I weighed myself several times and got results ranging between 235 and 240. I really have to get a new scale.
5/13/10. I'm not optimistic about tomorrows weigh-in. I pigged out this evening. I'm going to have to walk like crazy next week.
5/15/10. It's been a bad weekend. Scales insist I regained what I lost last month. Still got a couple weeks.
5/16/10. I want chocolate...lots of it....NOW!!!
5/21/10. Wow! I did it! I lost the weight I regained and I am back down to 235. After all the pasta I've eaten in the last 2 days I didn't think that would be possible. I really pigged out obscenely yesterday. I was hoping to reach 230 by the end of this month. Pretty unlikely I'll lose 5# by next week, but that's okay. Anything I do lose will be progress.

I've dropped 3.8# since April 1. I'm only 1.2# away from my goal of losing 5# this month and guess who arrived this morning...TOM! Arghh! This is where I always run into trouble. I was looking over my weekly weigh-in numbers and realized it seems to be TOM that is undoing all my work. Even with the occasional overindulgence, I was still losing 3-5# a month only to start the next month with a gain. Instead of 1 step back and 2 steps forward, I was doing 1 step forward and 2 steps backwards. I'm not sure if it's water weight or fat, but it's sure frustrating. I'm going to have to be especially careful this coming week.
4/26/10. So far I'm not doing too bad. Of course, I've said that before only to gain back everything. Anyway, I've managed to not give in to the urge to pick up Pralines & Cream ice cream, chocolate doughnuts with chocolate icing & sprinkles and a medium pepperoni pizza. Yay me. I even talked myself out of picking up a bag of my favorite dark chocolate chips. Ordinarily an ounce of chips makes a great snack with my evening tea, but this week I probably wouldn't have stopped at 1 ounce. I made myself stay away from the candy aisle. Oh how I wanted chocolate. Any chocolate. Lots of chocolate. But I put my foot down and said no chocolate until the insanity passes. ~~whimper~~ I just need to make it to Friday. Do they make chocolate tea?
4/28/10. My official weigh-in is Friday, but just for a lark I decided to see how how I was doing. I'm pleased to say I come in at 236.8 which brings me to a 4.2# loss so far this month. Only .8# left to meet this months goal.
4/29/10. Only a few hours to weigh-in and I kind of caved a little. The urge for chocolate got the better of me, but only a little. I had maybe 1/2 ounce. Less than I would normally have for a treat with tea. I've been really good otherwise, so I'm hopeful that tomorrows number will be a good one.
4/30/10. The final number for April was 235.2 which gave me a total of 5.8# gone. Now to keep the streak going. It's this time between the last weigh-in of 1 month and the first weigh-in of the next month that always seems to get me into more trouble than any other time.

It's been an absolutely awful, disappointing let down of a day. I won't go into the details. Everytime I start thinking about it, start crying again. My eyes are feeling a bit dehydrated right now in spite of all the water I've been drinking (I got a new Tritan water bottle yesterday. Holds 32 oz., is BPA-free and has a nice sippy tube.). I've been doing well with my calories. It seems to be mostly weekends that I have a problem. I don't know why. It's not like I work Monday through Friday. Everyday is pretty much the same to me. Either I have clients to see or I don't. Oh well. Time for a cup of tea.

Ahh, the end of another reasonably pleasant day. I got a lot done. My 2 old ladies got their stitches out and are back running on their wheel. It's a lovely evening to relax with a nice cup of tea (herbal, of course) and some dark chocolate chips. Yeah, I'm enjoying the moment.
