Weigh in...finally

Well, I finally stepped on the scale today and it wasn't what I thought. I weigh exactly 222, which I think was what I was weighing before I fell and broke my ankle 2 months ago. It's a victory in itself, because that means I survived the Christmas and New Year's holidays without gaining a pound, but I swear that when I went back to work just 11 days ago I probably weighed 5 lbs less. I am not eating a lot, I just munch on junk sometimes. We are in the middle of a chocolate bar fundraiser at school right now and even though plain chocolate is not a favorite of mine, I bought one yesterday and ate half :-(

I am constantly fighting with my food demons...last week after therapy I drove by a health food place and tasted some sugar coated cashews. They were devine and I bought $10. worth!! I ate for several days, then I finally threw out about half the bag out into the grass, I was sick of eating them...that's probably part of my 5 lb regain in a week! I just have to get my ass in gear and JUST DO IT! In early January I was told about a wedding on 2/21 and I thought...ahhhh, I have like 7 weeks to lose AT LEAST 10 lbs - did I do it? Nope, and the wedding is in 8 days.'s always tomorrow. Damn food demons, why doesn't someone exorcise them for me!?!?!??!!

I will travel by bus this weekend for 3 hrs to go visit my boyfriend, it's our 6 year anniversary and we've always spent it together, so I hope my ankle is able to lift me up onto old Greyhound!

I sure hope I post a better weigh in next week. Keeping my fingers crossed.


  1. Being laid up with a bad ankle must have made it difficult to stick to your plan....Good for you to have made it through this time without gaining!!!!

    Wish someone could get rid of those food demons for you....but you alreaady know you have to do it yourself. Count each small victory toward the evenutal winning of the war.....You can do it - change your mindset about those demons, that is.

    And happy anniversary! I'm sure you will have a wonderful weekend with your man....enjoy it!

  2. Girl, that ankle will probably kick your leg up all by itself if it knows where it's taking you! LOL... Happy Valentine's, my frien*. Have fun with the BF. LOL @ I know what you mean about the 10 lb weight loss. Sometimes time just passes us by & we on't *o it, but hurray at not gaining. Love you!

  3. Hope you have a great weekend with you bf.

  4. I'm hoping to lose a few pounds while I'm held up here and not being able to walk. I can't get food unless someone brings it me.

    Enjoy your week.

  5. I could use an exorcist sometimes, too! Hang in there! You can do this! :)

  6. Good morning, just checking in finally with a few free minutes...

    Hang in there, you WILL do this. I have faith in you!
