Day 241

Hot and a bit sweaty after walking the dogs
“I keep trying to lose weight… but it keeps finding me!” -Author Unknown

OK, so yesterday i made the terrible mistake of getting on the scale toward the end of the day and I almost flipped out.
197.6 WHAT!!!! WTF?!!! So I got on it this morning 193.6. Not good, BUT way better than 197 OMG! Ok so I've gained 2.2 pounds in August not exactly a banner month. I can't do anything about that now. BUT I can change my behavior for September. Five pounds in a little over two weeks is my goal. 180's by my doctor's appointment. Do-able IF my thyroid isn't the problem. Crossing my finger that isn't the problem. No more JUNK FOOD! Yesterday I did eat one cookie. WISH ME LUCK!

Day 240

CAUTION: Standing naked in front of a mirror may cause sudden waves of dizziness, nausea, and the overwhelming urge to perform liposuction with a turkey baster....YIKES!

I am still terrified of the scale...... This Friday morning I'll hop on it....PROMISE! I'm just discouraged! I thought I'd be in the 170's by now. I'm just bummed. it is a lot harder to lose weight when your partner isn't on board with it. Last time when Jim was losing too it was MUCH easier. Some how I need to find a way to get him fired up and working out again. Barring that I need my jaw wired shut! I wonder if a doctor would do that for me.....

Day ????

So I forgot picture in the middle of getting ready to go to Ohio for mom's 75th birthday. Oops! That whole trip threw me! not much exercise and eating things I never eat.... I'm having a really hard time eating right, and my exercising isn't what it was. In other words I'm STRUGGLING! Courtney breaking up with her long time boyfriend, Turner. Courtney moving out and off to college. Katie's Flexible Sigmoidoscopy this past week knocked me for a loop.

I'm very worried about Katie's results. We won't know anything till the biopsy results come back. The poor kid has some nasty ulcers in her colon. We won't get the results till Wednesday. please say a few prayers for Katie.

So emotional eating has gotten me....

Getting back on track now! Off to ZUMBA!

Guess it is day 239!

Day 225 I think....

I'm so far behind blogging! actually my blog has become a real snooze fest. Does any one else in the world really care about the next pound I lose or gain EXCEPT ME??? Nope not really. Hell right now I don't even care. I'm at the dangerous time in weight loss about half way there. Pounds aren't coming off as fast. I'm totally tired of watching everything I put in my mouth. I need a weight loss buddy that inspires me. I need to get rid of the feeling everything is fruitless in life :( Guess i really need to keep up with what i am thankful for.... :P

I am Thankful for:

1. Good books.

2. the ice maker.

3. Halloween!

Wanda came for a brief visit!
Was gone to Ohio for a bit. Did not follow any diet restrictions or even exercise much so I'll be playing catch-up for a week or two I'm afraid :( I gained weight BLAH! So back on the straight and narrow.
