Was worried...

I've dreaded weighing in since I had the week of "whatever."  However, I promised myself that no matter, I'd do it before Monday.  This morning I stepped on.  Looked in disbelief and stepped off, only to redo it.

The result- 301.2!

Which means, even though I took a week off, I still managed to not go crazy and even managed to LOSE weight in the 14 days since I weighed in last.  CHEERS!!  1.4 pounds of loss.

This coming week involves a trip to Boise, some family drama, and a BIG test that I've got to take/pass.  This test is my 4th time trying it.  It's math, I despise math, and I'm freaking out about it again.  The times I've taken it I've only missed it by 1-4 questions.  Which hurts my head even more.

This week I will work on not letting the stress win, maintaining my water levels, and continuing with my movement and exercise.  My first short term goal is within my grasp.  I hope to have in reached in the next 2 weeks.

We've been playing with family from out of state all week.  I've not cared about much of anything expect having a good time with them.  We've gone hiking, went to the zoo, spent most of our time outdoors, and have just had a LOT of fun.

I was planning on weighing in this morning.  However, instead I made them a hot breakfast and enjoyed some myself.  I didn't want my weight to be different as I usually eat AFTER I weigh.  So, tomorrow we'll see how I did.

First week down.

Starting is always easy, staying with it is the trick.  That's where I've fallen.. where I've come to forget what I want.  I've talked with my good friends, my husband, and even my 17 year old.  They know that I want this.  I've spent the last year doing nothing but school, work, and family.  Literally.  I've gained a lot of pounds, but I reached the goal I needed.

But, then I looked at the price.  My health.

This summer is about me.  About my need to regain the health I had.  My goal is to lose weight, but mostly just to become active again.  I have attached no pounds to the summer, but I would love to lose at least 20.

I weighed this morning, Sunday's or Monday's are going to be my day.  Really, Sunday will be easier because my husband wants to do this also.

My weigh in was:  302.6 pounds.
A loss of 3.4 pounds.

I talked to my friend yesterday while we were having a pedi and sushi.  She asked what I've done this week.  Truth be known, not a whole lot.  I've only concentrated on drinking more water.  However, I have allowed for some Dr Pepper.  I've concentrated on eating more veggies and fruits.  However, I have enjoyed chips & dip as well.

I don't want to give up anything.  I want to do this my way and that means occasionally having food that isn't so good for me.

This week I'm going to focus on more movement. Starting out slow because of my "bad body."  (Bad knees, bad feet, bad ankle, and possibility of easy dislocations.)  Here is to week 2!
