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!!!
