*Long, Resigned Sigh*

Today's Weight - 212.7 (Up ???? ALOT)
Well.  I guess that's what happens when you do absolutely nothing to lose weight, and eat like you were never interested in getting thin and healthy.

Today's Weight - 209.2 (Down 0.5)
Not much time this morning, but it's good to be down after the snack I had yesterday afternoon!!!!!  Everything else was great - cereal for breakfast, lunch was a peanut butter sandwich on those flatbreads, dinner a grain bar - but in the afternoon, I ate half a bag of those veggie chips!!!  With sweet tea!!!  :O

Slow And Steady...

Today's Weight - 209.7 (Down 0.4)
As long as it's going down, or even holding ground (for a day or two!), I'm happy!  Of course, I'd love to weigh 135 TODAY! but I'm very happy to be smaller today than I was a few months ago, and looking forward with great anticipation to being smaller still this summer!!  Yesterday I had cereal for breakfast (very healthy organic granola with almonds and dark chocolate! - but I really need to get some more skim milk!), with water and coffee, then for lunch - - - OH MY!  Joy and Charles took me to Fogo Del ????? in Buckhead!!!  Oh my goodness.  I have had some good filet mignon in my life, but yesterday....  there has never been filet mignon until then.  I melted!  (You know how a good filet "melts" in your mouth?).  Everything was incredible!  The salad bar - I would have been perfectly content to just eat that - that is, until the meats starting coming around.  I didn't know food could be that good!!  And I have had some good food!   *sigh*
After eating such a substantial meal, I was hoping not to have to eat at all the rest of the day (we ate at noon), but after spending the afternoon playing in the pool at Joy and Charles', I was hungry by 5pm!  So I made a deli sandwich on that cool "flat" bread, and even had some chips.  And didn't eat until almost 7!  Oh, I also had a half flatbread with peanut butter!  And I was still down this morning!!!!  Yay!

Whew!!! That's A Relief!

Today's Weight - 210.1 (Down 2.4)
Yay!  I guess being hungry yesterday paid off!  It wasn't necessarily easy going from total indulgence to no coke, no tea, no fries, and only two meals rather than eating whenever and whatever I wanted!  But all day long, I wanted the freedom from obesity more than I wanted food - so it worked!  Now just to remember that....
I had a grain bar for breakfast (along with coffee and ice water, of course), skipped lunch and went to West Bank Park instead, to get too much sun!!, then had a sandwich and a handful of chips for dinner, just after 6.  (Water, of course).  Oh yeah, I also had a spoonful of peanut butter while I was making dinner for the kids, before I started my sandwich.  I got some new bread, called "sandwich thins" - pretty cool, like flatbread, only round and sliced open.  So instead of 160-220 calories in the bread you eat in a typical sandwich, this was only 100 calories in bread.  They have several whole-grain varieties to choose from.  (They were on sale!!)  Pretty good with Boar's Head Salsalito Turkey! (also on sale).

Really Need To Find My Groove Again!!

Today's Weight - 212.5 (Up 3.4)
Well, NOW I'm on the other side of 210!  Still, I was prepared for worse.  But now is the time to halt the reverse momentum - before it gets more costly.  I cannot forget how much I have enjoyed the benefits I have already reaped - just being down twenty pounds (or even fifteen....).  There is no way I want to give that up!!  Even though I have a long way to go - particularly as I'm doing this really slow!! - it is still rewarding on the way;  I don't have to wait until I reach my ultimate goal to enjoy it!!  It's fun on the way there!
So today, I'm going back to water (which I love, remember?), and healthy eating (no more junk!!).  And I don't have to consider that a sacrifice - I like the foods I eat when I am eating healthy.  Some people don't, and that does make it difficult.  Plus, I want to add exercise as part of my daily routine, not just an extra I throw in once a week or so...
