10 lbs in a Month...

Sunday, April 07, 2013

... if I can do it, so can you...!!!
(But you might not want to.)

I've been on the chocolate and cookie diet for about a month now.

And this morning the scale was UP exactly 10 lbs from a month ago.

A month ago I saw the lowest weight EVER since my teens - 119.8 lbs. (My dream goal is 120, so I was right there!)
Then I suffered a huge disappointment and things started spiraling out of control. I've been eating chocolate and cookies by the pound ever since. Me, an emotional eater? Never...!!

This morning at 129.8 I'm still within my range but barely and definitely too close for comfort. Determined to never see the 130s again, I have (FINALLY) started to take corrective action. My head is in a good place today; I'm feeling a bit sarcastic...

Goal is to be back down to 125 (my official goal weight) by the end of this month, which, sans chocolate and cookies, should be quite easy to achieve.

Please don't send any "you can do its" - I'm actually in a fairly happy place today.

Did an amazing hike yesterday & going on a little 8-mile hike this afternoon.
Will post a proper hiking blog later.

    A "little" 8mile hike. Well good for you.

Yep, I know without cookies, gummibears, soda and such you can loose weight. So let's try this together. Need to get focussed again as well.

    I tried that diet last month and did a lot better than you -- I gained the 10 pounds in just 2 weeks. Now I'm on a new plan because I've given up on chocolate and cookies as a means of health and well being. They're not going quietly, but they are going!

    So cute to hear you are going on a "little" hike of 8 miles! Funny how things change, isn't it?

    Well, I did the same thing. Got to goal, and the next day started eating and eating and got back to almost 130, where I'm hovering! My goal is to get right back down to 117-120. I'm on the path with you!

    Sometimes the best thing to get me motivated to succeed is to hear someone tell me I can't do it. I'm not going to say anything - sometimes it's better to stay quiet!
