Weekly Weigh-In #11


First of all I just want to say thank you so much for all your kind words this week!  It really meant the world to me.  You are all a huge reason why I was able to not turn to food for comfort and to stick to my goal of exercising.  I knew I would have to post on here and be accountable and that really helped me to stay on track.  You are all so thoughtful with your kind comments, emails and texts.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you!  I'm doing better and I'm trying to stay focused on the good things and not on the unanswered questions.  The funeral is on Monday, so I know that will be hard but it will be good.


The GREAT news is that I lost 1.2 pounds even though I had a bad week!  So that brings my total (with the pre-op diet in April) to 40.9 pounds.  YAY!!!!  I'm really excited that my hard work is paying off.  I made it a goal to workout more this week and I went to the gym 3 times for weights/cardio and did yoga twice.   As much as I really didn't want to workout this week, I forced myself to do it and I felt better after and I'm so glad I did it.

Last week I did good on working out but didn't do as good with my water and tracking my food.  I think because I've been eating about the same thing every day I kind of knew about how many calories that I was eating and just kind of slacked off.  So this week my three main goals are working out 5 times, plenty of water, and tracking my food. 

My roommates and I decided to order Ozarka home delivery and they are bringing the cooler on Monday.  I'm excited about this (it doesn't take much, haha) and I think it will help me to get all of the water that I need.

Hope everyone is doing good and y'all have a great weekend!!!
