Sorry I'm late!

I know it's Monday and you were all anxiously awaiting a Friday post, but the storm knocked out the internet where I was (and I hate posting from my phone!)

I lost another pound last week bringing the total to 21.

It's going a lot slower than the last time, but I have to keep reminding myself that it's going in the right direction.  And luckily my goal isn't as high as the 100 pounds it was the last time!

Have a great day all!

It's Friday!

Welcome to the end of the work week!

I have some great news today - this week I lost 3 pounds which brings my total to 20 pounds!  In spite of the long weekend, I had my best week yet since the big first week.

Seeing the number this morning has given me stronger motivation.  Even though it's only a 3 pound difference, 20 pounds sounds like a LOT more than 17.

This week I am going to totally refocus on the pot of gold at the end of this rainbow - better health and smaller clothes!  Have a great weekend my friends!

Lead me not to temptation..........

I normally try to stay away from places that will trigger me to potentially do bad things, so I don't go to places like Dylan's Candy store, etc.

The other morning, I had to get coffee on my way to work and the closest place was Dunkin' Donuts.  For the record, I'm one of the few people who don't love their coffee (nor do I like Starbucks!), but it was freezing and I just wanted to go to the closest place.

Well, I led myself to temptation!  While waiting for them to make my coffee, I found myself staring at 3 unbelievable looking donuts - one filled with brownie batter, one filled with cookie dough and something called "fudge croissant donut".  Well, that's a LOT of temptation.

I kept saying to myself "look away!", but it seemed like it took 3 hours for them to make a cup of coffee!  I did manage to get out of there with ONLY my coffee, but I'm glad they didn't have "free samples" on the counter!

Ok, better late than never!

Yes, I know it's Friday.  And I know you have all been hitting the reset button in anticipation of today's blog post.  Well, wait no further!

For the 2 weeks, I have lost another 3 pounds, bringing the total to 17.

Considering I was away BOTH of the previous weekends (and not the poster child for dieting during those weekends!), I'm surprised that I had such a big loss.  While I didn't have cookies, cake or ice cream, I definitely could have made better eating choices than I did.


This is a new week with new choices!  I will definitely try to make them better!

Have a great weekend everyone!

I know you were all anxiously awaiting a blog post on Friday with a weight loss number for the week, but I didn't post one.

From the "believe it or not files", when I got on the scale on Friday morning (at 3:45 AM!), the battery was dead!  So I don't know what my number was!  And there was no way that I was searching for the replacement battery at that hour.

I had to get on the road for what was undoubtedly the scariest driving experience I've ever had!  There was driving snow and no lights on the road.  If being scared makes one lose weight, that trip would have taken 50 pounds off of me!  We obviously did get to our destination in 1 piece, albeit MANY hours later!

The scale now has a new battery and there WILL be a Friday posting this week.  (although I'm a little afraid because I wasn't the world's best dieter this past weekend!)

At home or away?

Do you have more of a problem sticking to whatever program you're on when you're at home or when you're away?

For ME, I'm fine when I'm home because I have a routine.  As a rule, I don't eat dinner because I'm lucky enough not to be hungry at night.  (I know - you're all jealous!)  So I come home from work, take a shower and then read or watch a "quality" rerun like Happy Days or Golden Girls until I go to sleep.

When I'm away, my whole schedule changes.  I become hungry at times when I'm generally NOT hungry!  And, of course, I don't always make the right choices.  I was away last weekend and I was definitely not the ideal dieter, but I was right back on when I returned.  I'm also going to be away THIS weekend, so I face another challenge..

I may not get to post a weight update tomorrow until later in the day, but there will be one at some point!
