159.6 this morning. I was pleasantly surprised!
I ate a ton yesterday. 5 chicken thighs, 2 burgers, 2 eggs with cheese, a salad and 2 atkins bars. I was sooo hungry. I was expecting it much higher this morning.

159 this morning. I gasped because I expected to have gained.
My 6 year old son, Randy, looks at me and says "I guess you should not have eaten so much yesterday. You ate all day long."
Mouthy little brat!

I told him I lost weight. When he got on the scale his weight was slightly down from yesterday. He cheered. I had to have a discussion with him about how he does not have to worry about it now. He just needs to eat healthy food and play a lot. He is a skinny minnie. I feel bad I have taught him that losing weight is good. If anything, he needs to gain it.

I was 1/2 lb up at my official weigh in last Thursday, which was fine.

This morning on my home scale I am 2.2 lbs up from the weekend.
Don't judge me...but I ate 3 boxes of Atkins bars in the last 5 days
That is out of control! This morning I had two left and I ate them both just to get it over with!
So, I am not surprised I am up...but I still do not like it!

And, I have gas so bad. Silent but Deadly!

I'm going to go hang my head in shame now!

Hey, don't feel too bad. I can't buy Breyer's Carb Smart ice cream bars very often, because I will eat the entire box within 2 days. I feel you!

160.1 this morning. I am not weighing myself as much as I am at peace with where my weight is now and weighing every day makes me focus on the number that day instead of the overall state of my body.

I have not weighed myself all week! I have to weigh in tomorrow and get a reality check.

Yesterday I decided to eat a pretty carby meal. We went to my favorite place in Lancaster. I ate ham loaf, fried chicken, sausage, green beans and potato filling.
Limited amounts and no where near what I would have had before this WOE.
I decided beforehand what I would eat and how much. And I got back right on track.

Now, I have to see what the scale thinks about my decision.

Over 2 weeks since I have posted in here...
I'm not weighing myself very much lately. I weigh in on the Wii and it takes a few minutes and the mornings have been rushed around here lately.

I still weigh in on Thursday nights and I have been at 161 for 3 weeks straight. My goal weight there is 167-169, so I am doing well.
I'm working on maintaining it, not focusing on losing more right now.

I haven't journaled in a while. Things are pretty much the same. My weight on Thursday nights is up to 164...which is a slight bit higher than where I would like it...but I have complete confidence it will come down soon!

I'm still just about the same. 163.5 this week at my weigh in.

I'm conflicted about Thanksgiving. Can't decide if I will eat carbs or not!

Yeah, Thanksgiving is hard to deal with, more so than Christmas, I think. I can resist the sweets at Christmas, but Thanksgiving is all about the CARBS.

Weighed in last night and I am at my highest weight since May. Just 2 lbs up, but I'm just not happy with it.
I have been not very strict. Drinking sodas, a bite of this, a bite of that.
Today, I eat in moderation. Tomorrow, I am back to stricter low carb. I want to start the new year at my all-time lowest weight!

I made it through Thanksgiving ok. I ate a little bit of sweet potatoes and a small piece of pecan pie.
Friday my stomach was a mess from that small amount of carbs. (My poor friends had to listen to me toot all day while we were shopping.)

I have not weighed myself.

Gained 4 lbs in December, so I am at 166, my highest weight in a long time.
I have my official weigh in tonight and I suspect I am up another pound or two.
So, today is the day I get myself back on track!

I enjoyed my holidays without going overboard. Even though I indulged, I ate very sensibly...enjoying some potato filling, because I only get it once a year and I love it!
Ate some cranberry sauce...1/2 piece of pumpkin pie, one chocolate chip cookie and 1/2 blondie. And a little bit of wine!


Today, back to strict low carb and I want to be back to 162 by the end of January.

I weighed in last night at 164.5. I really have no idea how that happened! It was 1.5 lbs down since last week. My calories and carbs were high, so it is really a fluke that I lost weight.

Yesterday and today I have been back on track and writing down my meals after I eat them instead of waiting for the end of the day.

My weight is up to 167 now. I know I need to get it under control.
I'm eating a few more carbs than I used to, but I think what is really contributing to it is my eating at bedtime. So, no more eating after dinner for me, starting last night.

And I am trying to decrease my DD coffee with mocha. I wanted one this afternoon so bad but I passed on it.

I'm hoping to have these five pounds off in the next five weeks...one pound a week should be doable.

Did some exercise this morning. Only 18 minutes, but it was better than 18 minutes sitting on my butt.

I had such a good, in control day! I think starting it off with a little exercise helped me make better decisions throughout the day!

I had a really good week. Felt in control. Cut down my carbs and my calories. Slight cut on the calories, nothing too drastic.

And...I gained a pound.

I am frustrated.

These are my possible reasons:
1. I totally misjudged what I ate, but since I write everything and am pretty consistent, I don't think that is it.
2. I'm sick and my body is just being freaky. I have a cough and cold.
3. I did a lot of cooking in the pressure cooker and used canned broth and the sodium level has me retaining water.
4. I am a pig who eats in my sleep.
5. I am destined to be the chubby girl the rest of my life.

3.5 lbs down this week! Woo hoo!
I am so happy because I was really upset about my weight gain!
I'm still 2.5 lbs over where I am really comfortable though. Going to do a meat and egg fast Monday and Tuesday and get all these carb cravings outta my system.

I'm floundering. Back up to 166.5. Making bad choices.

I got a FitBit today. I am hoping it makes me do some activity.

I hate winter. I am in a depressed funk and want to watch tv all the time. No energy to cook after work.

It's getting better. I feel like I made some good choices this weekend.
My Fitbit is really motivating me. I took the steps a ton today. Of course, I finally figured out that the Fitbit needs about 10 ft to register a set of stairs and our stairs are about 8 feet. So, I have no idea how many times I actually took them. I think the Fitbit only registered the ones that I sat on my bed afterwards.

I've been eating good since Friday and the scale is going up!
I am so frustrated. I want big, immediate results when I eat 100% on plan!

Still hanging out around 166. I seem to go between 164 and 166 every few weeks.

I love my FitBit. I have really been moving more. I have 5 other girls at work using them, so we have fun with it.
I have been doing WiiFit with my kids too, which is so much fun.
