Over a pound!

It's been a long time since I've lost over a pound.  I didn't keep my "big" loss, but I did keep a 1.4 pound loss.  YAY!!! 

My son told me last night, we had a salad for dinner (think mega, with sunflower seed, broc, cauli, tomaters, croutons, turkey, etc, etc) that he missed having salads.  I'm so glad that he does love his veggies.  We don't hav esalads for dinner much, my husband doesn't like veggies AT ALL.  But now that he's on nights, we can have them more often- and the consensus is- have them!

I'm catching up on Biggest Loser today.  Watched only some of both shows...  what I saw was a lot of changes already-- will be interesting to see what I have missed...

Back to basics

This was the theme for the motivational lecture I gave.  I think it was a big hit.  It was for me-- reminded me of where I've come from, where I'm going, and what I need to do.  Both from what I've done and what I've not done.

Someone mentioned that I looked really great, I said thanks.  I'm not down, and if I am- it's barely down.  The last couple weeks have been very minimal in the losing department.  But last night I decided to get on the scale and see how I was doing. 

HOLY COW!!  What a week of eating all 3 meals, having 2 snacks, and eating mostly produce has done for me.  When not eating produce, getting just a scoop of "whatever" and being done.  If I'm still  hungry, getting water or lemonade to drink to fill me up. 

I'm excited to see my weigh in come Wednesday!!

TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)

I love my TOPS chapter.  I really do.
Tomorrow is our Fall Rally, and it promises to be a LOT of fun!!
I'm looking forward to a day of motivation to be pumped through my veins.

Onward, down

Had a slight gain, but nothing big and major.  0.2 pounds.  I'm okay with that.

I also made a big decision to cut out some people in my life that I consider toxic.  I give them the benefit of the doubt over and over and over again.  However, over and over and over again they break my heart and stress me out.

I was amazed by how easy it was to decide to be off with this person's head... but I do think it's best.  Funny how much you can dislike someone you lived with for sooooo many years...

Had a loss.
Little bit, but a loss.
Week from the record books.
I changed nothing.
Just walking to and from school.
Trust me, that was good.

Curious about work

So, I am a teacher.  If you've been reading me for awhile you have probably guessed that.  What do you do for a living?

the reason I ask, is because this morning as I was getting dressed & realizing I put some weight on (since my capri's are tighter than normal) I wondered if it was because of my lack of eating this week.  Or the stress of 150+ kids in my room, or maybe just figuring out ever changing schedules...

Either way, I wonder what those of you who are having success, and those who are climbing hills, do for a living.  Does your job help or hurt?  Does it make it more difficult, or less?

For me, it depends on the day.  The first month of school is hectic & draining.  The last month as well.  But the section from November til January-- pure gold.

What a week!

First full week of school, with kids, will be over today. Somehow I managed to lose a little bit, 0.2, but it's a loss, and I'll take it. I've done good and brought my lunch, but I haven't been eating breakfast- which is always hard for me it seems. I did buckle and have some soda yesterday. My head was throbbing at lunch & all too soon it was easy to remember why I drank soda during the school year. In the summer I rarely have it.

Anyhow-- this weekend a friend is starting a local bootcamp. I'm going to take part & am super excited about it. The gym is about over, and I don't think I'm going to renew. There is just so much I could use that money for instead-- like a new car. Mine had a casualty with a boulder falling off a cliff.

Weigh in day (back to school edition, B2SE) #1


My goal is to lose 15 pounds by my birthday week weigh in, which would be 11/24, 12 weeks away. I know some might think this is a little goal, and it is. But I have such a stress induced coma when goals are concerned, that I want to make sure I can hit it and not have some crazy 4 poound a week loss!

On 11/24 I wanna weigh in at 259.6!
