YES! FINALLY! The scale HAS MOVED! And not just a little - 5 lbs. The 5 damn pounds I've been waiting for for 2 weeks. THAT'S what I'm talking about!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

I KNEW I was doing things right. Counting every calorie, exercising every day - setting FIRE to my FAT cells! And finally, the scale has shown me my work. YESSSSS.....
213 this morning. Only a matter of time till I'm in ONEderland! ONEderland is what I feel like I have been striving for this whole journey... all 150 lbs so far. My goal is 180 (probably lower, but for now)180 accompanied with the 20 lbs of skin I have hanging off me taken off - brings me to about 160 - I mean, holy shit. I haven't been 160 since, like elementary school! AND if, I get to 160, I will have officially lost 205 lbs. That is a grown freakin' man, people!
Whew - ok. Now that that is out, down to business. I had a super amazing hardcore workout this morning at Bodyology/Tuff Girl Fitness in Hamden. I seriously work to my absolute max everytime I am there - I can't HELP it. I get to the point where I am on the verge of being dizzy, then I know to back off and I rest a minute. Then, I do it again.
Anyway, I needed to share the triumph. I almost had an unfortunate run in with Starbucks today. We went on a family trip to Target, and I told Thing 1 I would get him a milk treat when we got there. Well, his milk is at the Starbucks at target. I stood in line, and started getting that craving for a nice, warm mocha (it's really chilly here, today) and THEN I saw they had dark chocolate graham cracker cookies. I knew I couldn't handle it. I asked my hubby to stand in line with Thing 1 to get his milk, and I wheeled Thing 2 over to another isle. Crisis averted.
Now, would a tall non fat mocha have undone my day? No. HOWEVER, it's simple too slippery a slope for me. I have one, I want another and another...and on and on. The more quickly I realize there are some things I just cannot have, the better off I'm going to be.
Today, I made great choices to improve my health. Have you made good choices today? What have you done today to improve your health?


  1. Good job on the loss! And great job avoiding the cookies at Starbucks - those are definitely tempting!!!

  2. That is a great loss! You are SUCH an inspiration. Good job declining the 'Bucks, too...that's hard to do!
