Saturday morning weigh in

I almost didn't post this at all, but then decided I should if for no other reason than to 'keep it real' and let you know I haven't quite given up on this endeavor.  My weight this week is only down like .2 lbs so I'm not considering it a loss at all, at best I just maintained this week. 

Which is no surprise really, I didn't work all that hard this week, but I did feel like I stepped up my game a little over the previous two weeks so I am slightly disappointed, but yeah, totally my fault. I ate too many steak subs (which we had twice this week...hey, we had BOGO coupons!) and even added potato chips on the side. I only worked out once all week. I ate breadsticks with my pizza, which adds way more calories than you'd think. Had three peices of cornbread with my chili. Had a couple of cupcakes and a Reese Cup. There's probably more that I can't think of right now, but you get the idea. Just letting the little things add up to be enough to prevent any weight lost this week.

So I know I need to step it up, plain and simple. If I want to lose ten more pounds by Christmas (which I now officially doubt I can pull off, to be honest, maybe I should aim for getting in the 120's?) I've got to start being ruthless with my efforts! Less junk and cheating, way more getting my butt moving. So easy to say, why is it so hard to implement!?!

FINALLY a Saturday morning weigh in!

Weight three weeks ago: 137.4
Weight this morning: 135.2
Loss of: 2.2  lbs.

I can NOT tell you what a relief it was this morning to get on the scales after three weeks of cheating (and totally avoiding the scale altogether out of fear) to see a loss. I was chanting in my head on my way across the room to the scales, "Please don't be back in the 140's again!" because I honestly believed I gained every single pound back! So yay for momentum that kept me somehow safe the past three weeks, and hopefully today can mark a comeback of real effort again. Imagine how far along I'd be right now if I'd kept working hard and eating right. Instead of two pounds I'd probably be down six more by today. Reminder to myself: You could be back in the 120's right now if you'd have done what you know you should be doing. Stop being such a slacker!! :-)

That being said, I'm making pink cupcakes today for my daughter to take to her Sunday evening small groups tomorrow and, let's face it, pink cupcakes rock. So yeah. Totally going to have one. Or two. Just being real. ;-)
