Weigh In & Goal Awards and Finding Myself



Weigh in Day!!!!

7.31 = 235.6
8.07 = 233.8

-1.8 pounds

Total Loss to Date: 26.2 pounds

This is sweet on so many levels. We had a family reunion this weekend and I was far from home and out of my comfort zone. My family LOVES food...and not the good for you food. I brought along bananas, carrots and jicama for snacking, as well as protein bars for breakfast. Most of the meals consisted of meat, carbs, carbs and more carbs. Very little fruit or produce was there. But I managed.

We ran to Subway about 20 minutes away so I could have dinner Friday night, AFTER the ice cream social. Can you say temptations? I hadn't eaten dinner and we had gallons upon gallons of homemade ice cream in front of me. I managed to take two small scoops of my Daddy's Andes Mint Ice Cream and left the rest alone. That was so hard.

Saturday we had sandwiches for lunch and I avoided the chips and snacked on my jicama as a side. Then I worked out...yes on "vacation" I squeezed in over 3 miles. Everyone thought I was crazy...but I knew if I didn't get it in, Tuesday would not have had such a great outcome. Then came dinner... smoked pulled pork butt and brisket, with home made BBQ sauce, cheesy potatoes, and carbs carbs carbs. I ate a bit of this and a bit of that and then... SOMEONE BROUGHT A SALAD. A spinach salad with a little cheese and mandarins in it; oh wait...what's that? They crumbled up bacon in it too...What the????? Sigh, so I scooped up the salad and managed to avoid all of the bacon. At least I got some green into my belly!

I really was freaking out what the scale would show come today, but my hubby suggested upping my water intake even more than what I was accustomed to, to help with the sodium content of the foods that entered my body. I guess it worked, it could also be the fact that I worked out on vacation, then after a four hour car ride home, I worked out again, and yet again yesterday...and for the record today as well.

I am an addict. There I said it. I'm addicted to working out now. I get that itchin' feeling when I'm sitting around and I just have to do something about it! It's great to feel this way.

It paid off...that and my new plan seems to be helping. So today I weighed in at 233.8. For WW that puts me 26.2 pounds down, meaning I reached my 25 loss award!!!! Even sweeter, I hit my 10% goal, which was 26 pounds. So I was received two awards in today's meeting. The next award available is for 50 pounds. I'm a ways away from that, but I've got my sights set on it.

Also, this puts me 43.9 pounds down from my heaviest...creeping up on 50 pounds. :)

Wedding Day September 2007

For now, my next goal is 224lb. This puts me at 30 pounds down and the weight I was the day I was married my wonderful husband 5 years ago, this September.
