Sorry I haven't been here...

Wow! I can't believe it's been about two weeks since my last blog. Needless to say, I've been having a really tough time. I lose battles, but I am determined to win the war!

This last couple of weeks, I've been kind of down in the dumps. Not really depressed, just not very happy. I find that when I get in that kind of mood, I don't eat right and end up making bad choices. Last week was a disaster and I ended up gaining a pound. I didn't go to my WW meeting because I got swamped with work, everybody needing everything back now! I was staying up way too late working, struggling to keep my eyes open, so what did I do? I went to find something to eat. Really, bad idea. I had a hard time through the first three days of the week, but then refound my focus and stayed OP the rest of the week.

I went to WI this morning fully expecting another gain, but I must have done something right, because I lost 4.8 lbs (makes up for that pound last week). I was very excited. This puts my total weight loss at 25.4 lbs since January. I've thought about it and why maybe I lost. I'm thinking that maybe because I didn't totally beat myself up when I made the wrong choices, looked at as just a bump in the road, it helped me not feel like a failure and I was able to get back OP.

My goal this week is to remain OP all week and stay that way. Also, to get back to exercising! I did well for a while, but now have fallen woefully short in that category. This will work, I just have to work it.


  1. Some weeks are harder than others, but you're doing well! Down over 25 pounds since January? It's only March! That is fantastic!!!

    Glad to see you back blogging - I've missed you!

  2. Those bumps in the road can really get us sometimes. You're in it for the long haul though...doing great too with over 25 pounds already!
