Cheated weigh-in and reflection

happy feet
Current weight 258 pounds

I know, I shouldn't weigh myself everyday but um, I've just lost another 2 pounds! When I weighed myself on Tuesday and Wednesday I felt that the scale wanted to go lower (sounds nuts but its true) I felt that I was hitting a new phase in my weight loss. I don't know how I felt this or why and I won't question it since I think God has something to do with it.

I've been feeling a lot less stress, my stepson called yesterday and I told him no company for awhile I hope I didn't hurt his feelings but I need to be me for a bit. No sooner do I not have company do I start losing weight, hmm...

I still haven't exercised, I think I'm the only blogger in the exercise group who doesn't. Why is that? Why can't I get this body to move? I must be lazy and I don't plan it in my schedule like I did for those weeks that I did exercise. That has to be my priority along with following this plan. How do I motivate myself to move my body? How come I haven't motivated myself to do it yet? Is it because I'm losing in spite of now activity? I want to be in shape, I want to be bendy, I want to feel sexy and exercise will do that, especially with this gut!

I've got to stop thinking and start moving...

Sizzling Hot Summer Challenge Check Week 3

Starting weight: 268
Week 3 weight: 260
Amount lost/gained THIS week: -5

Well to be honest I never thought I'd see 260 again this morning. I seriously thought it was a fluke but no it's the truth. That's an 8 pound loss this month alone so far.

I feel like I'm back in the swing of things, I've started putting my home in order, I did a job that had been haunting me for weeks, I have 2 more to complete but things seem a lot less overwhelming. I feel like I can breathe a bit. All this will take me far concerning my weight loss program. No stress, a bit more time and I think I can continue onto the road of weight loss with great results. I feel like I slowed down a bit but there's something we say in AA, I'm paraphrasing here "I am exactly where I'm supposed to be at this time" I'll continue to strive to reach my goals, better myself, become a better wife, daughter, mother, sister etc. I wasn't supposed to weigh 240 today I am where God wants me to be and that's all that's important. How liberating is that, God's holding me today, I don't have to worry.

Now I have a question, I've noticed some of you belong to a 15% club that is a private blog. Can I ask is it weight related? Is it none of my business? If I'm overstepping any boundaries I do apologize.

HYC Check In ~ What a Suprise!

OMG! I just lost 5 pounds overnight?! At first I thought I had gained 5 pounds since I had not seen the scale line read 260 in years and yesterday I was 265, I've been 265 save one day for the last 2 weeks. I did reach 264 on Tuesday of last week but the next day I was back to 265. I was actually reading on plateaus and then realized I had no business studying the subject because I haven't been exercising and been eating a ton of chili.

So even though I've stayed on plan minus the exercise for the last 2 weeks, yesterday I decided to take my plan a bit more serious and I ate lots of protein, a little rice, lots of fruit (dang I have no more fruit left today, I'm actually panicking). So when I got on the scale today I was hoping for a 1 pound loss but instead it showed 5 pounds. I swear to you all, I weighed myself 6 or 7 times because I couldn't figure out what the number was that I saw it has been that long!

260 pounds, well kudos to me!

I am back

First I'll start by saying my grand babies and stepdaughter left tonight at 10:00pm, their 2 week stay is over and we did enjoy it very much but they were not only messy but took over my living room which is a big mess right now. There was some disrespect going on but not enough to really bother me. My stepdaughter has both these children 24/7/365, her hubby is off on his 2nd tour of duty so she's basically alone and has some expectations when she's here. We didn't meet them of that I'm sure. I have 3 at home jobs, plus I have to cook and clean my own home, take care of the 5 animals we have, run errands, try to workout (which I did not for 2 whole weeks *hangs head in shame*) and finally I have a 48 year old husband who can be like a child at times LOL. So I was not in any mood to hand out favors, maybe that makes me bad, I don't know, maybe I'm selfish but I don't have the energy to be too generous with my time these days. I do know I need better organization and time skills and that's what the next few weeks are about for me.

I'm glad they are gone for now, I miss them because it's wonderful to have 2 beautiful children here and my stepdaughter and I get along great, we laugh alot together, have the same kind of crazy sense of humor and we just love each other but right now having order in my house, time to myself and is what I need. I hope my stepson does not show up here anytime soon I will have a serious cry, I NEED ME TIME! and he's not known for calling ahead of time. I'm probably just being paranoid but I've already told hubby no more company for a bit now.

We had a blast at a friends house last night, they served burgers on the grill, I had one without any bread, a tomato, onion and some of her Mexican sticky rice and a potato salad (all small portions). Hubby went for the chips (I won't eat junk, it's not worth it anymore).

I finally finished my chili yesterday :( I worship that stuff I swear to you.

I didn't weigh myself this morning due to company living in the living room but tomorrow I will, let's see what no exercise, a burger and rice and large portions of chili does to my body.
