Back on again & its Weigh In Day...

I didn't do a pic last week but here's my weigh in for today.  And I finally dropped the last 2lbs I gained back.  Plus I had my period! Go me, amazing how having that can help you lose weight.  Haha.  And I've been making sure to eat my oatmeal and have breakfast in the morning.  I really think that has helped a lot.  Also, I'm drinking more water!  Go me!  My job has a cafeteria and meal deal thing, so I made sure to buy the card that just got meals with no drinks.  So now I have no choice but to drink water.  Haha.

In the meantime, I've been really stressed.  We have our wedding coming up VERY soon, a month away now.  And all the planning is getting done last minute of course!  Then add in moving around that time as well.  So yeah, its going to be real crazy here.  Hopefully in the meantime, my weight keeps dropping.

Thats it for now people...oh and I got a hair cut!  I'll post pics soon.

Alright, I'm back! Had a bad week but turning it around this week!

So I didn't post my weigh in for Saturday on here, not as a blog entry itself.  But I did add the update to the side.  Either way though, I've been avoiding the mention of how bad I did last week.  Lets just say with the start of Super Bowl and the fact that the Saints won!  I was enjoying myself with lots of not so great food.  I did a lot of grazing, that includes Super Bowl Sunday....and the week following.  We had a luncheon at work and it left lots of sweets, breads and goodies to last for the week.  And yes, my fat self was sneaking it back to my desk.  So disappointing.  And you know what, my stomach was really upset.  I should have known then.

So the weigh in for Saturday was 218, ugggghhh!  Yes, I managed to gain back 3lbs.  I wish I could say it was water retention.  Who knows?  A mix of eating bad, not exercising and the possibility of my period coming (aka water retention and bloating).  But my period never came.  This damn IUD sucks!  By the way, I'm in the works of getting that taken out and getting fixed.  No more babies for me!

So outside of that, I started over this week as of Monday on eating better.  Including drinking water.  I had two glasses of water yesterday, that good for me. LOL.  Plus it was like my body was craving it.  As for today, only 1 cup.  But tomorrow I'm going to work on it and drink more.  Thats my goal this week, more water and exercise.  Actually use my EA Active that I wanted so bad.  So I got on it tonight for 30 minutes.  I restarted the 30-day program and it wasn't as bad as the first time.

Its looking up and I'm going to try and stay off the damn hard!

Another Weigh In Day & A Busy Weekend!

So its weigh in day again...proud to say I'm managed to get down 2 lbs this week.  Making me at 215lbs!  Whoop whoop!  I went for my 3rd fill this past Thursday and it must be doing the trick.  I admit, I can fill the restriction more with these past two fills.  So the band is really working for me now. 

Last night we had our two youngest kiddos Birthday Party at Chuck E Cheese.  Wooooooooo!  The night flew by so fast.  But the kids had a fun time.  And so did my family on me.  I don't think they expected us to pay for all of them, adults included but we covered them and it was nice.  Even my brother said thank you.  Which is rare...he don't do that.  LOL.  I got tons of pics.  Then D's cousins and mom came into town last night.  They tried to make it for the party but were a bit late so we visited them at our house.  It was really nice to see them.  His cousins are scared of my big giant cats.  Haha.  They thought Romeo (the youngest and 15lb cat) was like a tiger.  I just died laughing.  Altogether, last night was a good night.

Then there's today, going to drive to Dallas for my cousin's baby shower.  Now mind you, this is a cousin I've never met.  Just so happens to be my mom's sister on her dad's side that she has never met.  Its a very exciting moment for all of us.  And I want to make sure this happens for my mama, she deserves that.  I love her!  So we're off to do that today.  Thinking of it, I really need to get off to shower and get dressed.  Plus I need to clean my car out.  LOL.

Oh and tomorrow is Super Bowl!  Who Dat! Yes, I'm a Saints fan and I'm going for the Saints baby!  So a busy fun weekend still ahead.......  :o)
