- week


What a crazy week!  We had 3 nights of tornado sirens, one night of zero electricity, baseball, gymnastics, egg hunts and life.  I am tired and worn out and feeling all of my 30 years.  I am less a pound this week and sneaking up on the 60 lbs loss mark.  I am scheduling a fill for may because I noticed this week that I am no longer as restricted as I need to be.   Hopefully, the next few weeks will pass quickly and I will get the perfect fill.   I have still been reading all of your blogs but have been really busy and only commented on a few.  I am hoping that this week will be slower and I will be able to get back into things. 

Week in Review:
Water-  Still rocking this and I think that I can officially say that it is now a done deal.

Food- Well, it was the week of Easter so I have had some candy but not much.  It is also weird that I am now craving savory things more than sweet. I am eating a little more than I should (notice bit about fill) but I am still only eating around 1.5-2 cups of food per meal. 

Exercises- Only twice this week.  I wonder if you can count rounding up kids and putting them in the hallway 3 nights this week or maybe even the rushing from one thing to the next.  Sigh, if only it worked that way.

Mental- I made Easter dinner this week for my family and while I was looking at the table something surprised me.  Usually it is potatoes, meat, breads...well, you get the point, and we still had that too but I also had salad, carrots and fruit salad for dessert.  We had other desserts too but it was interesting to me that in a year I now cook differently and include healthy options on our holiday menu.  This might sound odd to some of you but anyone from the south knows exactly what I am talking about.

How about all of you?  Did you have a great week?

  1. Hi there, new follower. I noticed your comment on my blog and stopped on over.

    Congrats on the loss even on such a busy and stressful holiday week! I'm excited to know that your holiday meals consist of healthier holiday options. Mine didn't this year, but next year for certain I'm sure Easter will be different.

  2. But you did 2 nights of exercise this week. I think that is a great accomplishment. One step at a time.

    I also want to thank you for leaving me comments. It is so nice to know that others are out in this big world reading our little thoughts. Keep on commenting. It brings immense rewards. BTW. You need to change your sign off of ~fat girl to ~formerly fat girl. Because you are doing a fantastic job. Isn't the band great! 59+ pounds. Can you believe it?

  3. Hoping you get to 60 down very soon. Any holiday time is usually a challenge when it comes to weight loss. I personally didn't work out at all this past week, so kudos to you.
