This weekend was pretty much a wash. Well, not a TOTAL wash. Friday I stayed WITHIN GOAL!! It was exciting and I was MOTIVATED and EXCITED to continue on Saturday. And I did! I did EXCELLENTLY on Saturday... until about 10:00 pm. Then my fat girl broke through. I ate four servings of cookies and was on the war path to eat more. I don't even remember everything I ate, but it was a lot. Probably about 2800 calories (I can't remember, so that is an approximate estimate). I bounced back Sunday with renewed fervor, and stayed nearly within goal. I was about 200 calories over, which is not too shabby. I still had a net loss this weekend of a couple of pounds, so I guess it's all good.

But I do need to realize that the weekends are going to be the hardest for me. The weekends are where my success will hinge. I can absolutely get down to about 280 doing exactly what I am doing right now, but I won't get any further than that unless I buckle down on the weekends as well. That being said... I'm NOT at 280 right now and that IS somewhere I want to be. I'm not going to worry too much about weekend failure for now. I have a lot of work to do and it would be easiest if I could stick to a healthy schedule for the weekdays and let myself have a little more freedom on the weekends. I have plans to only drink pop on the weekends and I have plans to up my calories for the weekends by about 300. For now, anyway.

I'm sitting at 329.4 this morning, which is SO MUCH higher than I want to be, but five pounds down from Wednesday. Most of that is water, I'm aware. I'm also aware I have more water to lose, so I'm getting my cup and filling it up 8 times today. And today I am going to get a workout in. I'm determined. This evening I am going to work out for a half hour program on my elliptical and it is going to be fabulous. Hard, but fabulous. I have 15 pounds to lose this month and 15 pounds to lose next month if I am going to make my goal. It is absolutely possible, but I need to add exercise or I won't make it. I know myself and I know I can lose about 10 pounds a month by eating correctly (including the weekends). So in order to make this HARD but possible goal of being under 300 by July 1, I NEED to add exercise. It's boring, but it WILL work.
