Day #176 Cruising

I'm just cruising along. Today was a great day at work, I had easy patients who were not very demanding and appreciated my hard work. I started getting really hungry about 2 hours before my shift was over and didn't pack any snacks and I was THIS close to going downstairs and grabbing something from the caf. Thankfully I didn't! I kept my eye on the prize (reaching that first huge goal of 50 lbs) and ate two saltine cracker packets (4 total) and drank water. I'm at 1400 calories for the day and i'm not eating anything else. 2.6 lbs! I just keep telling myself 2.6! whenever I have cravings. I hope you had a fantastic day as well :-)

Day #175 Weigh-In & NSV

When I went out of town last week I took some clothes that don't fit me anymore to one of my best friends who is preggo and she gave me some clothes that she can't fit into anymore. I decided to wear a pair of shorts that she gave me today, size 18, and they are literally falling off as I walk to the point where my entire underwear are showing, lol. I had to come back home and add a belt!

Since I felt really skinny with these loose shorts I decided, what the heck, i'll weigh myself right now in the middle of the day, after eating lunch...and I weighed 202.6 lbs! That's a loss of 2 lbs from 3 days ago and a total loss of 47.4 lbs. After maintaining my weight loss for so many weeks it's as if i've started over with weight loss and am losing weight quickly. I'm enjoying it and definitely not complaining...I know it's going to get hard again and it's going to slow down, that's it just water weight, etc.

I worked at my office manager job today and caught up with everything there for half a day, but was off from the hospital. I work the next 5 days in a row which are going to be physically and mentally exhausting, but i'm going to keep thinking about all the fun my sister and I are going to have for those 5 days off in a row afterwards to get me through it!

Day #.....172? Re-dedicating myself to blogging :-)

Hi everyone! I'm back! The last few weeks have been a roller coaster as far as my weight goes. I have fluctuated between 206 and 211 the entire time. I didn't think about what I was eating, but I wasn't really gaining back all of the weight either. I consider my first attempt at maintaining my weight loss a success.

This past Thursday I re-dedicated myself to my weight loss journey. I weighed in at 211.8 before I left for going out of town that day, and behaved during my trip. I weighed myself when I got home from work today and I weighed 204.6! I was SO excited! I can't WAIT to get into ONEderland :-) I'll officially be halfway to my weight loss journey once I get to 200 but 199 is going to be such a sweet victory.

How are things going for YOU?
