OK...so I have a weigh in schedule establshed. I weigh in every 10 days, instead of weekly. My goal over those ten ays is 2.5 pounds, not unreasonable! So, I have fallen off the nutritional wago a couple times, but i have stayed in my calorie range! I am also kicked butt with the exercise....My clothes feel better, I am less winded during cardio and my back aches have lessened......
WELL.......... Let me tell you what my punk ass scale said to me yesterday... I get up at 4 a.m. for my gym run. It's my weigh in day, so I strip climb on the scare and scream!!! I have GAINED 2.5 POUNDS! I curse, move the scale around to different areas of the bathroom floor (must be off balance), climb aboard and get the same freaking number!
I was discouraged..I started to pull my pj's back on, climb in the bed and feel sorry for myself...I didnt. I got my butt up, cursed all the way to the gym and worked my butt off.
When i got off work yesterday afternoon, went for a walk...I gave myself a peptalk and decided that I cant give up. Knowing that i had lost some inches helped a great deal.
This morning, I woke up feeling pretty positive, so I stripped, cimbed on the scale and held my breath... To my surprise, I was 3.5 pounds less than I was yesterday!?!?!?! Of course, I moved the scale around the bathroom (because it had to be wrong), and it didnt change.
Maybe I was bloated, I dont know what it is.... I honestly believe that my scale is screwing with me.
I tell you what, that sucker is not going to win! I've started telling him (my scale has to be a man), GAME ON, SUCKER, every time I go in the bathroom.

I got my nails done a week and a half ago. Once I finished and looked at my pretty hands, I had a revalation!!! I felt so much better about myself. I realized that as I started to gain weight, i started neglecting the things that made me feel good.....other than food .
A year ago, I pamperedmyslef with biweekly nail appointments. A nice pedicure, eyebrow wax, a fill and a fresh coat of polish...had me sparkling. I realize now, that along with my failure to maintain my hands, feet and eyebrows, I had been skimping on my hair care. My conclusion is, that it's a package...If you neglect one aspect of your life, it throws it all off balance. I went out to a friends house for a party on Saturday...I had a ball. i gave myself a night off from calorie recording and beating myself up over my food choices. i ended up eating a ncie meal on Saturday, drank some wine and had a ball.
Sunday, i took a day off from exercising..I dont feel bad about it..that's a first. i think i am making some progress......FINALLY!!! Oh, and I did have a 5 pound loss for the month of January!!! I hit some bumps in the middle of the month, so I am giving myself credit for those 5.5 pounds in 2 weeks!!!

I am still bs'ing about getting out and enjoying life.
I am still obsessed with food.
I am still fighting good habits, tooth and nail....
I have stayed withing my caloric intake limit for 5, yep FIVE days!!!
I really didnt feel like exercising last night, and looked for every excuse not to. I had already decided that if I couldnt find a parking space at the gym, I was going home...Well, on my way out, there was a space. It was wierd, all the other spaces were filled, people that were leaving had the parking lot stalkers behind them, a line of cars were waiting to pull into the parking lot...but there was an uncontested parking space.
The exercise Gods put that space there for me. Had I went home, I wouldnt have pulled the step out and did it at home.
So....After I went in a pushed myself with some cardio, I decided that i deserved a reward. I was going to Costco and have a vanilla frozen yogurt....yum. But for some reason, I turned right instead of left out the parking lot. It was like I was on auto pilot. I then decided, I will go to Mc Donalds and get a small ice cream cone. Well, I drove past Mickie Dee's to the freeway. I thought about all the places I could satisfy my craving for some ice cream on my route home....but instead i pulled out a cup of fat free yoplait. It was almost an after thought when i was leaving work to grab the cup of Lemon Cream Pie yogurt from the fridge and stash it in my lunch bag.
I ate that yogurt on my way home....I went home and stayed within my boundaries with a 1/2 sandwich and some baked fries.
I'm proud of what I accomplished yesterday...Fighting the demons is rough...but today is another day....

I have taken the advice of every grown up i have encountered to heart..."clean your plate". I cant start eating some food that is in a bag, bowl, can etc and not try and finish. It happened to me last night. i started munching on some popcors, caramel popcorn and I didnt stop until I got the bottom of the container...
