Well one week and I lost nothing! Oh well I guess I will just keep trying I thought the sheer adrenaline of now having the moving date would burn like 30 pounds off! LOL But keeping with it, I did overdo on some homegrown strawberries oh man they are so good, wow you eat those shipped ones all year but these local fresh ones are killer!!!!! So we have a graduation party tomorrow and then packing up here to get things done!

Mmm...local fresh strawberries sound amazing! I need to go look for some this weekend since I got paid today.

Good luck with all your moving preparations! Happy for you.

Mmmmmm fresh local strawberries. There are certainly worse things to indulge in!

Keep chugging along, your body is adjusting. At least no gain right? Good luck with the move!!

I'm sure your body is just adapting to the increased exercise and carbs! Love those strawberries!

Great news about your house, Amber.

Hi Amber! I'm back after a (too) long haiatus (<--how do you spell that??) and saw your new journal. I love looking at your pictures - you have made such an incredible transformation! And I love how you NEVER quit no matter what, even when the going is frustrating. I look up to you so much for that.

Sounds like you are moving to a new house??? Whatever all is up with that CONGRATULATIONS and have fun setting up and getting everything just the way you want it!!!

DG

Hey girls, busy weekend trying to get everything for the move lined up! We picked some flooring and paint colors, etc. Getting all the contractors lined up and trying to make a schedule of all the work that needs to be done! Didn't weigh this morning since I didnt want to see a number that might tick me off but I did pretty good eating wise! Really excited about the house!!!!! Father's Day sucks for me not having a Dad and Tony was in a terrible mood since Autumn is always in FL over Father's Day so let's just say Sunday was a bad scene around here!
Glad to go to work and just tick the days off the calendar until settlement!

Well Bobby played in a tournament last night, they were ahead 6-1 and then in the 5th inning everything fell apart, it went into extra innings and they lost by 1 run! So heartbreaking!!!!! I did eat some Mediterranean pasta salad, but did not shove in any baked goods, that is a plus!!!!

This is such GREAT news and your new home is beautiful. Just keep thinking of how happy you and Tony and Bobby will be when you are settled -- you can grill outdoors in that gorgeous backyard with the stunning view! Plus you will be close to your old gym again too. This will be worth the wait fellow Virgo!

Well settlement was not w/o drama, the sellers are divorcing wife shows up 45 minutes late she is living in PA, husband is in FL, she was to have the original POA to sign for him and she didnt have it, OMG I was dying she was bawling and a wreck, had to go in another room, my agent was like amber she might leave and not sign and this isnt going to happen, I was freaking out, so finally the settlement lady got husbad on phone he is sending the original express for morning delivery and they gave us the keys, so hopefully all will be well, talk about more stress!!!! OMG!!!!!!!

So now we are heading to the house for all our workers to show up, fridge being delivered, cant wait to get in there!!!!!

Hey girls I have been MIA for some time!!! I can't believe how long it has been!!! I am still struggling, just staying the same, I get strict for 2 weeks, lose a ton of weight which you would think motivates me, but then go off the deep end! Tony and I are going to Vegas 1/17 for a week and I really want to have a good 20 pounds off me til then! I think the worst is I am not working out like I was, I am struggling in that dept, might try a new gym!
Going to be posting on here somewhat regularly and see if that helps me, I keep thinking how was I determined for so long losing this weight, and now I cant stay focused at all!

So no sense crying about what it, just do it! Grilled lots of meat yesterday.

today had

protein shake for breakfast w/almond milk
salad with buffalo chicken for lunch
pork chop and salad for dinner

And managed to get my vitamins in, I swear I am so lame I cant even remember to take them everyday, just been lacking in everything!!!!!

The house is great we love it!!!! We are doing lots of projects, the next is the home gym, I am going to like that!!!!

Hope you all are doing well, I did miss my peeps!!!!!

Hey stranger A home gym sounds wonderful, and I'm happy that everything's great in the new place! I think that maintaining during that kind of stress and change is its own accomplishment, but I know you'll feel great when you are back on track and find your new gym. Good to see an update from you!
