Weight In

Well apparently as soon as I could hold down water and food some weight came back.  Not. Cool. All that sickness and only a 2 pound loss.....grrrr. ;P

Last Week 189.2
This Week 187.2

Ok well, to have a clear conscience I must admit, I was actually 187.6...BUT I am swollen as a bee today! I am sure it is at least a pound, and well, all that hard work of being sick, I wanted to at least record a 2 lb loss.  Anyways, one. more. week.  Then, the wedding!

Hopefully my size Medium dress will fit nice.  Last night to our ladies confrence I wore a dress I haven't worn in at least 6 years.  Yes, that's right.  A size M.  I wore it at my rehersal dinner.  Can you believe it?  I can't.  I really can't.

Thank you who still read this.  I am so bad lately about updating and I know a lot of people stopped following it.  I appreciate everyone that does read. xo.
 Ps please pray for my Baby Reece.  He now has the stomach flu ;( threw up 6 times today since I got home from ladies confrence. I am missing tonight because I don't want to leave him.

Not as I hoped but.....

Well I'm on day 4 of the stomach flu. I've never had it this long. Blah. I'm feeling a bit better right now and pray it lasts. {No I'm not pregnant :)}.

When I said I was ready to blow through the 180's I didn't mean like this!!!! Yuck! But I'll take it I guess.

The results? Almost 5 pounds down already. I have hardly eaten anything in 4 days. I'm amazed my milk supply is still holding. Poor Reece has the runs though ;( really praying he doesn't get as sick as I was. I was driving up north to a family party when I turned around and came home. Boo. Terrible few days.
Prayers appreciated. Xo

Weigh In: Finally!

Last weigh in: 191.4
Today: 189.2! Yeah baby! 2.2 loss. Finally 189!!! So ready to blow through the 80's it's crazy.
Heading to my great Aunt's party tomorrow 5 hours north. So I'll be gone over night again. Need to make good food choices.
I do NOT want to go backwards. I am uploading a progress pic. haven't done that in a while. Just a side one. I didn't think the front one did justice. I can see a difference. Most of my clothes are too big (including the leggings I was wearing in the picture).
Gotta run, my tummy hurts from the donut I ate after I stepped off the scale. What? It wouldn't be weigh in day with out some kind of sweet treat. ;)

Dang it.

I am so frustrated right now. I could scream. SCREAM I tell you.  I was up half a pound from two weeks ago.
Two weeks, gone.
Actually, At the beginning of the week I was up 5 pounds! I knew it wasn't all "fat" but water weight, bloating, ect. So I worked hard all week to get where I am now.   I will NOT let this happen again. Truth, I get scared by saying that. Because seems like when I have a goal or a time frame I go backwards. Ironic. 
I really thought I might see 189 today because I had a good last two days. I even walked both days!!
But I woke up this am swollen! Totally retaining water. Why? I don't know. I was on my feet all day yesterday out and about and I didn't drink enough water. So I knew the scale would not be kind today. 

Today I am taking it easy food wise. Not trying to do damage but not logging food. Back at it tomorrow.  Full force. This week better watch out.  I am FOCUSED and need to stop waisting time.

Happy Friday, have a great weekend!

Redeeming the day

Friday is weigh in, and I'm not sure if I'll make my goal of 189. Ugh! It's so hard to get back into the swing of things.
I've been doing well since Sunday. Thank you Jesus. But today it's all rainy and cloudy (yay) and I have been feeling lazy & munchie. I ate way too much cookie butter (dang that stuff!) and am trying to redeem the day. So far so good. Church is tonight which helps.
I've come a long way. 54 pounds ago I would have threw in the towel for the whole day. Or week even!
Busy busy again. 11 AKC chocolate lab puppies were born to our family Monday at dawn! You can imagine the chaos with 12 dogs and 3 boys!!

It's actually not that* bad. Belle is a great mom which makes it easy on me :)
Got my hair cut!! 5 inches!!! Feels great. See?
I almost got on the treadmill today...maybe I will. So much to do though!!!

Pray for me for weigh in!
