I just really really am determined to lose! It's taking it's time, but I need to be patient. It doesn't come off over night right? You can't snap your fingers and have 20 fat nasty pounds suddenly be shed? I get this. I am just so sick of the infamous muffin top and feeling yuck about myself. I am eating better. I am slowly losing, so I just need to tell myself that I'm on my way. I'm headed in the right direction and if I continue on with this way of life, the weight will come off! It will. I just need to be patient, motivated and determined to keep true to myself and stay focused on my goals! I need to get moving and try a little harder. I need to get back to tracking what I eat and need to back off the justification of bad foods. I can do this!

Ya, so I've been sick since Tuesday and that does not do wonders for my weight loss. You'd think it would, especially since I have an awful sore throat, but alas, I didn't eat too well this week. Mind you, there were meals I missed because I just didn't feel well or because it hurt my throat too bad to eat. However, when I did eat, I ate some NOT so good things for me. Like ice cream, fruit drinks, etc. They helped to numb my throat and they were among the few things that sounded good to eat. I did get the half fat frozen yogurt ;) if that counts for anything!

This week went pretty well. I stayed in my points for the most part and drank a lot! I didn't exercise like I should've. Wait, let's be honest, I didn't officially get down and exercise at all. Unless you can include cleaning cleaning cleaning and chasing around toddlers, etc. ;) Anyways, I kept my focus and was determined to be happy with whatever weight loss I had come weigh in time. I was aware of the fact that last week's weigh in was quite high, so I wasn't gonna shoot myself down if the numbers weren't the best this week. I did make a goal to at least have some sort of loss though. I knew if I kept focused and determined, this could happen.

So, today was weigh in day. It's been 1 whole week since I've re-directed my focus. It's been a week since I wrote down my weight goals and gained some motivation. It's been 1 whole week since I started writing down EVERYTHING I eat. It's been a week and I feel GREAT! Who wouldn't feel great when they stand on a scale and see that they had a weight loss of. . .

I can't believe I haven't posted here in SO long! It's pathetic, it's lame and I'm of course FULL of excuses! However, I'm not gonna excuse my lack in motivation! There is NO excuse other than lack of self control and utter disappointment in myself, which caused a downward spiral!

I know, I know!! I've TOTALLY slacked on the postin' lately, but I'm still here! I'm motivated as ever and can't wait to weigh in for HFH this Friday. I'm really hoping to put up good numbers. I can't believe I missed the last weigh in. What's even more horrible? I haven't posted here forever!! I need to get into the habit of writing here daily!! Even if it's ramblings full of scatter brained thoughts, at least I'm posting! Maybe I should start a food journal. Ya ,that'd be good. Can you all tell I'm tired!?!
