The Little Engine That Could aka Trophywife2010

Just breaking out of my early evening funk. My Cowboys lost and we needed that win. I know it's just a game but I am just a big fan. I am getting over it though.

Well it was my first clean eating weekend. I did decent. I stuck to the every three hours pretty good yesterday. Today I was a little off. Needed to go food shopping and that was the problem. Didn't have the goods in the house. I weighed myself yesterday and I lost a couple pounds but I did it after working out so I don't trust the numbers. I realized something yesterday though. I always have a time with the first ten pounds. I thought back to a couple of times when on the weight loss trail, specifically when I lost about 40 pounds in 2002. It took me almost three months to lose ten pounds. Well same seems to apply here. I lost the ten pounds but I can't break that barrier. I got to thinking that time and time again I had this issue. I would slim down but the number on the scale would take forever to budge. I had to persevere till it happened. That's just what I did the last time in 2002 and once I hit the ten pounds I got the other 30 off in about four months. Is that how it works for my body? I guess my body fights to keep it on initially. But I will prevail. I AM the LIttle Engine and damn it, I will! LOL

I do notice some positive changes though. My jeans look better on and are actually sliding off my butt, just a little. 'Alice' is still back there. That's what I started calling that thing I lug around day by day. Trust me, it's a biggin' so it gets it's own name. It's like it's own person following me around everywhere! When I get smaller and it looks sexier again, I give it a spicier name, like Alexis or something. But for now it's Alice and she is getting a little tinier. Less intimidating to the furniture. My husband told me today that he can tell I have lost some weight. Hearing that man say anything is an accomplishment on my part of itself. So I will continue on my journey, the little engine trudging along, with the desire and determination to get the job done. I think I can, I think I can. I KNOW I CAN! emoticon Or maybe more like Sherman Klump from the Nutty Professor "Yes I can! Yes I can!"

    Keep up the great job! Your body has natural plateaus and it seems like you have to move mountains to get the scale to budge. I had the exact same problem...I just couldn't get past 148 lbs forever. I talked to my Doctor and he explained it all to me...keep working out and dont give up. You will push through the first 10 lbs.

    Oh, that is FUNNY! "Alice."

    I'm going to have to call mine a name. For years, my family call the saddlebag area, "pones." I don't even know what that means!

    "Trying to hide these pones."
