It's been awhile....

I just realized I haven't updated here in a couple of weeks. I was in quite a funk for awhile there...I was getting tired of tracking, tired of having to think about every.single.thing that I ate, tired of going to the gym. Last week I realized I need to keep doing this. While I haven't gained any weight since starting WW, I had stayed even two weeks ago and then just lost 0.2 lbs last week.

I REALLY wanted to hit my 10% weight loss before we go out of town this weekend. So last week I was more vigilant about tracking, and added more dairy into my diet. Unfortunately I only made it to the gym once. Luckily I lost 3 lbs, so I received my key chain at the meeting last night =). So far I've lost a total of 19.2 lbs since starting January 10, 2011. I really think I'll hit the 150 lb mark by Pam's wedding in June...that's what I'm shooting for! And today at work I had my first "have you lost weight?" comment from a co-worker that I see occasionally!! That was a great feeling, and looking at my key chain every time I go anywhere is a great reminder of all I've done in the last 10 weeks.

Not doing good

I've totally lost my motivation. I'm still tracking all the food I eat, but I feel like I'm cheating the system. I know I'm not making smart choices, and yet I keep doing it. I really need to hit the store and stock up on healthy choices, but I've put it off and put it off. Now I'm starting to pay for it. I didn't lose anything at all this past week. Honestly, I'm just happy I didn't gain based on how poor I feel I'm doing.

I've been dealing with a cold for the last week and a half, and as a result I haven't hit the treadmill in at least that amount of time. Work is stressful and the weather has been just blech, and it's weighing on everything.

Enough with the excuses...tomorrow I WILL hit the gym and the grocery store!

Long week

Last week was a tough one, from Tuesday on. A co worker's daughter was killed in a car accident Monday night, which we found out about on Tuesday. It was a sad, sad week, ending with the service on Friday night. It's getting very stressful with the project I'm working on, too, so I was just glad to make it through the week.

I went into the Weight Watchers meeting Monday night expecting a gain, since working out and running just wasn't happening like it should. Luckily I was down 1.6 lbs, so now I've lost 15.8 lbs. What's really rewarding is that I'm under 170 lbs for the first time in I'd guess at least 3 years. My clothes are starting to become annoyingly loose, but I'm still not quite small enough that Id' feel comfortable going down a size. Plus, I really don't want to buy clothes until I feel like I've "earned" it. I do have a few things I bought last week a couple sizes down, so hopefully I'll be in them soon.
