Moment of truth

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Weigh in was today.... dun dun duuuunnnn..... Haha! No, it's fine. I'm down a pound and a half from the last time I touched my ticker. A little background on that I guess. The last time I weighed and input my info was March 15. SInce then, I've had a very rough time. I've been uber depressed from the never ending winter which lead to enormous amounts of food and serious lack of exercise. I did get on the scale a few times, and I don't know why. I'd get on, cuss at the scale, and kick it back under the bed. At one point, I was at 179, YIKES!!! That's when I decided I wasn't getting on until after my vacation and a couple of recovery weeks.

Well, I've been home since April 21 and I've had about 10 days to "recover." Down a pound a a half from 6 weeks ago, is just fine with me! I would like to be at goal by the time I do the Dirty Girl which is September 7. That means I have to lose one pound a week. On paper, totally doable, so we'll see. Alright friends, onward and upward. I mean downward!

    That is really good to be down 1 1/2 lbs since your last weigh-in with everything you have gone through and with vacation. One pound a week is totally doable! Keep pushing forward and you will make your goal!

    Hey, it's a loss and not a gain. We all have our moments. If it were easy we'd all be thin. The most important thing is that you never gave up. You will get to where you need to be when that time comes. Enjoy the ride for now.
