I lost 1.6 pounds this week. Yay! Not quite as much as I would've liked, but also very good considering that Thanksgiving was this week. I also ate a lot more than planned for the holiday... one of the managers brought in Boston Market, and it was DELICIOUS. So yeah, we went kind of nuts on that. Whoops. ^_^;;;
On a good note, however, is that I did some shopping on Amazon for Black Friday. Well... okay, not good for my bank account, but nevermind. It was made completely of DVD's and Wii stuff, but it's the Wii stuff that's relevant here. I got the Gold's Gym Cardio Workout game, plus some workout accessories- the push up bar and the stepper thing for the balance board, ankle/wrist weights, and a dumbbell set that attaches to the wiimote and nunchuck.
Also I saw my aunt briefly on Thanksgiving before I went to work, and she made the comment of "look how skinny you're getting!" .....she's a liar, but I made accepting noises anyway. I don't take compliments well. XD I don't know, maybe by next Thanksgiving, if I see her, I'll actually be feeling it. :P

I don't know, maybe I should just skip it, since I've been putting it off all week... oh well. I weighed in when I was supposed to, it's just been a crazy week and I haven't had the energy to deal with making an entry here to talk about it. At least I'm doing it, even though "week 34" is going to be tomorrow. Pffft. As it is, this is just going to be a quickie because I've got to leave for work soon.
I gained a half a pound for Tuesday's weigh in, which wasn't a surprise because I'd eaten like crap all week. Just... one of those weeks, you know? And this week has been absolutely crazy- another six day work week, in addition to Thanksgiving and Black Friday and lazy coworkers and just general craziness. Haven't done completely horrible according to the scale though, so we'll just have to see what happens tomorrow. Need to get into the habit of weighing myself every day again and not avoiding it just because I don't want to.
Okay. Really have to go. I'll see you guys tomorrow with a hopefully good check-in! :D

I'm up from a couple of days ago by .6, but as of today I've lost 5.1 pounds according to the Wii Fit. That brings me to 173.9. Not the lowest I've ever weighed in on it, but getting close! Bathroom scale puts me at 191.6, which means I actually gained on that one. Bah. I do feel "heavy" today and I'm not sure what that's about. Can't be PMS so soon. I think I'm just... tired, this has been the week from hell at work, and food the last couple of days hasn't been fantastic either. Probably not going to be any better today, to be honest. Last I knew Kelly wanted Wings, and while they're oh so delicious, I'm actually glad they don't put calorie counts on their website. I DON'T WANT TO KNOW.
As much as I just want to sleep the whole day, I really should get up and do a couple of things. I need groceries. Debating whether I want to get my Chinese food fix, because if I do end up getting Wings later, that's a double whammy. And I really should go into work and get a flu shot. Employees get them for free- which is good because I hate needles and there's no way I'd be paying them to stab me- but on the other hand, that involves actually... going into work on my day off. Ugh. Don't WANNA. I've never had the flu, so I've never had the vaccine because I don't see the point, but my older sister Erin who's a nurse implied that maybe it was the reason I seemed to be constantly sick last winter. :/
In other news, Harry Potter comes out on Friday. I am, sadly, working, but I plan to go drag Kelly to the theater next Tuesday to go watch it with me. Hopefully it'll be slightly less crowded than on a Friday opening night, but we'll see. XD
...alright, enough procrastinating, off to get stabbed. \o

Not a perfect week by any stretch, but better! I haven't weighed myself today, but I did weigh in yesterday (the official weigh in day) at 179 on the Wii board- meaning that I lost a half a pound from the last official weigh in. YAY! Also considering that I've had my period this week too, so yeah. I'm definitely feeling better about that.
My food is still a challenge. I've definitely had a few days that were not good at ALL, but some days being on target for calories is better than none, which is what was happening before. Just need to keep working on it- starting over every day and all that. I fell off the wagon after the breakup, and I got back up and limped along, but the vacation knocked me back down again. So now I'm trying to pull myself back up into standing, and that's a process and is going to continue to be one until I crawl back onto that stupid wagon. I'm going to do it. It's just a little frustrating right now while I get back into the swing of things as far as what I'm eating and keeping track of calories and whatnot.
In other news, somebody messaged me on a dating site about a week ago and I need to stop being a socially inept chicken and message her back. XP I'm also looking at this dress. I'm not a dress kind of person generally, but I feel like I should have at least SOMETHING in my closet that's nice in a "going out to dinner" kind of way, you know? Even if I never wear the damn thing. Anyway. So I found this dress on the Walmart site that I actually like. Comes in black, too.
It's still in the plus size section, but it DOES go down to a 16, so hopefully it would be alright. Unfortunately, there's one big concern... well, okay, technically two. :P You see the neckline on this? I tend to have issues with necklines like that because of the girls. They are large and in charge, you see, and necklines like that usually let them escape... or at least get a nice view of the room. So basically, I would HAVE to try this on first, but they don't sell it in the store and the damn thing is $30. That's a lot of money to try on a dress. Plus if it doesn't fit, then I have to go and return it. That's a lot of hassle just for a dress. Maybe I should just find a nice top and a pair of pants and call it good. That way I don't even have to deal with the top size vs. bottom size issue. *sigh*

I've been avoiding the scale, which is not a good thing. I gained another pound this week on the bathroom scale, but then, I didn't eat any better, either. That brings me to 191 even on that scale and god knows what on the Wii Fit. UGH! I've just... yeah, been having a really hard time starting up again here. I didn't think it would be this hard. Once you've lost the momentum... apparently your brain just goes "Nope, don't want to do it anymore." Sigh.
I bought rechargeable batteries to stick in the Wii board, I just haven't put them in yet. This wouldn't have even been such a big deal if the stupid thing took AAA's like I thought it did. I -had- AAA's. I bought them FOR the Wii board because that's what I thought it needed. But apparently not. *kicks it*
In that vein, I decided today that I'm going to try to restart the same way I started originally before- watching the food intake, and no, not just watching it as it goes in my mouth. Add exercise back in after a bit. That seemed to work for me before, I don't see any reason why it can't work for me again. My BIGGEST problem right now is that my calories are out of control, so that needs to be my first priority. I also need to get those batteries in the damn board and start weighing myself daily again. As much as the minor fluctuations freaked me out sometimes, it kept me on track, and it kept me focused, and I've lost that. There's a vast and crucial difference between not wanting to go on the scale because you're not sure what crazy number it's going to come up with this time, and not wanting to go on the scale because you KNOW what it's going to say and you just don't want to have to admit that you've gained. Avoiding the scale when I know it's something I need to do daily hasn't done me any favors lately.
So! Food today, I've already started that. Scale tomorrow. I have work today, so that helps. I don't do as well if I'm sitting at home eating. I did this once, I can do it again. I'm confident of at least that much. It's just a matter of buckling down and doing it. Hopefully next week I'll be able to give a positive report on that.
