I've decided my "official" weigh day will be Fridays...I'm sure I'll still step on the scale each morning, but I want one solid day to be my weigh-in (like meetings). 220.8 today on my 1st W.I. Down from my recent high of 222. My goal is to lose 5% of that starting weight, so 11.1 lbs = 210.9. That seems like a perfect number for me to aim for since it will mean breaking past my lowest since '05. I'm ready to do this! It is great to have the Internet to connect with others along this journey. Thanks for coming along on this crazy "ride!" Lol.
It's no different than the rest of ours. I see your head is in the game..let's do it! WW set a 5% goal for me too so I'm just looking and thinking of that number only for now. Congrats on the loss!!

Yesterday was crazy busy at work, so didn't eat much during the day:

B: Kashi Go Lean Crunch honey almond flax w/ 2% milk
L: Kashi Go Lean protein fiber bar & Ocean Spray fruit snacks
SN: Fiber One chocolate & peanut butter brownie
D: Chicken salad wrap & sweet potato fries w/ southwest Ranch, "tall" Blue Moon draft

Weight isn't up, so I'm happy I could eat out normally! That makes me happy.

Nikki: Hope you have a good weekend as well! I'm working 9 days in a row also, so I'm def looking forward to being off Fri-Sun next week!

Cle: I went out with a guy last night who I've seen before...he's nice, but I'm not really feeling him that way. It was kinda awkward bc he tried to kiss me & I moved. Lol. Idk...

Shari: I agree...I'm focused in on my 5% goal so I can take it one step at a time.

Yea, that kiss thing was awkward, but I'm not gonna kiss someone if I'm not feeling it. Lol. Dating can be so tiring at times.

Ate on plan today...had chipotle flavored salmon for dinner. Was yummy!

Yes, that was my 1st time trying Blue Moon (have always heard good things, and I'm picky about beer), and I really liked it. My other favorite is Yuengling.

The salmon is something my mom actually found at BJ's Wholesale Club...it was yummy! I need to go with her and check their food stuff out. I know they have Lavash wraps there too, which I really like.

I the Fiber One brownies...they're not very big, but they taste "normal" & give me a taste of something sweet.

Was 218.8 this morning...woot woot! My goal for Christmas is to be 199! I know I've set goals for reaching the 100's before, but I really think I will do it this time.

I found out the deal w/ my new job...it is an international shipping company (stuff like pipe for Navy contracts & cruise lines), and the job was posted as "Open" & I've completed the whole hiring process, but for some reason, their headquarters in FL asked for there to be no new hiring until the 1st of next year (finishing out this year's budget). The branch manager was irritated b/c the regional manager had already given him the go-ahead to hire me, but now there's this conflicting message. I told him it was ok b/c I have a job now--I just needed an idea of the start date so I could give a notice & hire someone/train someone to replace me. It's only a few more months, so that's not that long. It will be better pay, better benefits, and regular hours (8-5), whereas now I work both day & night shifts, sometimes doubles, often on weekends, etc. I am just ready for my stress level to go down!

I am glad you understand!!! LOL...I felt bad for him, but I'm not going to give a "sympathy" kiss b/c I believe in being honest about my feelings.

I have been off-plan this week...I swear last weekend derailed me (Cheesecake Factory, need I say more?). I've been really irritated at work this week, also, so that didn't help b/c I tend to turn to food & have mini-binges as a reaction.

Gotta start tracking again, at least...that's 1 step in the right direction.

How is everyone?

Sara, I'm sending you a PM.

I had no expectations except for Rebel Wilson to be hilarious. She was. I was happy. I was actually hoping DD would choose this movie to see tonight..I could use alil "a-ca-funny" today! Nope, she chose a scary thriller movie instead...

I haven't turned to food for months for any stress whatsoever..which is why I'm perplexed why now..kwim? I guess instead of stressing over why I'm stressing I need to just keep going and it is what it is.. I give myself some credit tho' for just owning it and seeing things all the way through instead of just disappearing and being off track for months. I can't afford to gain more weight!

I'm sorry that work has been a stressor for you. I so do not miss that! Back on track Missy, you are awesome!

Hey, Cle!

So, it's a long story, but my dad is not a part of my life now and it's just really hurting me...I feel like I've been punched in the stomach. Life is just too hard sometimes.

I'm sorry things are tough right now, hon. I can relate to the whole thing of the parents no longer being in your life. I went through this going on 2 years now and it still hurts. However, it had to be done in order to save my own sanity. I'm sure the decision for this change was a valid one, and one you didn't do lightly. Know that you are doing things to take care of you and your well-being. Be well and take care of yourself and know that we are all here.
