Teenagers are easy

As easy as nailing jello to the wall.....

I saw a sign that had that saying on it and I cracked up! It was just perfect after arguing on the phone with my 17 year old daughter! If we make it through the college search and all come out alive it will be a miracle!

Anway.....I had an absolutely wonderful week. Tuesday was my first day back OP and I lost 4 pounds between then and Sunday morning. I really needed that after the awful gain! Only 2 more pounds to lose before I can count the loss for the challenge and my orange team! I still need to lose 7 pounds total from the beginning of the gaining spree. It is really discouraging but I guess it could be worse and at least I am back on track!

I readjusted my goal and switched it from 2 pounds loss per week to 1 1/2 pounds per week. I think it is much more reasonable and realistic. It will take me longer to get to my ultimate weight but I am okay with that. I couldn't have done this without all of my spark friends. In the past as soon as I started to spiral I would just throw in the towel and go back to the "old way".

I'm ready for a new week and need to start exercising again!!!

    LOL, I HAD to read this blog when I saw the title. I was thinking of sending my teens to you if that was so...then I read the jello part...lmaoooo@ being so true!

    whoooooohooooooo on the loss!!

    I completely understand when you said in the past you would just throw in the towel. I know that is what I did. I think the reason I'm having a hard time coming back 100% is just being ashamed that I was gone and not supporting my friends or myself. I'm really sorry for not being here for awhile. and I'm really proud of you for reaching out to sp friends to help you through this, it shows you have a lot of strength, we all know this healthy life style we've choosen is not easy. You soo rock!!!! -Tonya

    WooooHoooo G/F...you are on a roll! You can do this...one day at a time! So glad you had a good week! It may take you awhile but hey....even if it takes a year....then that's fine because that year is gonna pass reguardless of whether or not you try! So we have the choice of where we will be in one year....the same as now or healthier and weighing less! Let's chose to stay on the journey together!

    BTW...aren't teenagers so much fun! LOL
