= week


No this is not a repost of last weeks even though once again I was snowed into my house and unable to post and am at the same wait as well.  I am sorry for the lack of posts but it seems that everytime I am snowed in my husband takes the computer to work with him.  I am going to have to talk to him about that!  Anyway, I don't know how I did it but somehow I managed to keep my wait the same after a week of my period and, to be perfectly honest with everyone, after a few snow days with some not so perfect food choices.  I am still kicking myself a bit over the cheetos and cupcake but I have said this time and time again.  I am in this for the long haul and I know that there will be times when I eat food that is not the best choice but I also know that it is up to me how much and how often that is.  It is really odd the way I look at food now, I no longer eat something because it is there but think about if I really want it or not and what my accountability will be if I eat it.  Now to just get 2 pounds off so I can be below 300!!!!!  Guess it is time to hit the elliptical!

Week in evaluation:

1.  My water intake is up!  Mainly because of a sinus infection and the water helps my sore throat, but I will take it!

2.  I am starting to notice changes in my cycle.  I used to start cramping a week before my period and keep cramping until after it was over but the past two periods I didn't start cramping until the day before and only for the first day or so of the period.  I hope this is a promise of PCOS things that will go away with weight loss.

3.  I went shopping for some goal items this weekend and bought a few 2x shirts without trying them on.  I got home and my husband told me to see how close I am to fitting in them and they fit!  Not as loose as I usually wear my shirts but well enough that I can wear them and not feel fat either.  A very nice ending to the week.  When I started this blog I was in a 4x and now I am in a 2x.  Works for me!

BTW- I will post some pics this week.


  1. sore throat is not a lot of fun its just uncomfortable and difficult to swallow.

    usually, i would take the Nim Jiom Cough Syrup ( ) which has a thick consistency formulation. it coats the throat and includes herbs that are particularly good for that application.

    i hope it works on you as well.

  2. Congrats on the almost 2x - I bet that's an amazing feeling! Sounds like you're doing great with your water consumption. :)

  3. Thanks, you guys! Jane, I am going to have to look into that cough med because I needed something this past week!

  4. I really like your attitude about making a bad food choice and knowing it isnt the end and you are in it for the long haul. Usually when we are on a particular "diet" when we make a mistake we give up or beat ourselves up. I am really trying to make the "lifestyle change" and not "diet", since diet is a four letter word.....haha. Hope you feel better and get your workouts in.
