What? Is that right??

How did you all do on Thanksgiving? Who gained weight? Who maintained? Who *lost* weight?

ME! I lost weight! I lost nearly 3 lbs since Wednesday! I am sitting pretty at 215.2 lbs, down from 218. Its great to see that number again. If you will remember, I was at 215 before but then gained back nearly 3 lbs over the last two weeks. I guess I just wasn't ready to see that number on the scale, or maybe I was losing too quickly and my body had to adjust. Who knows, but the important thing was, I never gave up and I will not give up. I am happy with the pace I am going and I am enjoying getting to know more about myself along the way.

Things I have learned this week:

-Sometimes, change is good. Other times, its fantastic. I recently dyed my hair a dark brown with a blonde streak. I decided that I look much better as a brunette (who would have guessed, since I am naturally a brunette anyway!)
-Don't sweat it. Sometimes we worry too much about what we are or aren't doing "right". Heck, I planned Thursday's thanksgiving meal but totally winged Friday's. Both felt good.
-Sleep is important. Not getting enough sleep definitely impacts how I will eat that day.
-Yogurt is my favorite. I eat yogurt but then stop because I would get yeast infections (caused by the live bacteria) This makes me sad. I've decided that if I keep eating it long enough, my body will balance out. After all, yogurt is the bomb (dot com) and I don't want to give up this delicious dietary staple. I bought 6-6oz cups this week.


  1. Congrats on the loss! :)
    I love yogurt, too, but infections have never been an issue for me. I guess you're more sensitive to the bacteria.

    And me? I'm too afraid to step on the scale ;)

  2. Congrats on the loss, -3 in a week is great!
    As for me, today I´m at -1..not too bad considering I ate Thanksgiving dinner, and while it wasn´t alot it was definitely high in fat. Tomorrow is my official WI so we´ll see then.
    Keep up the good work.

  3. That is definitely reason to celebrate! Thanksgiving was a month ago, here in Canada, so I managed to breeze through this week. But seriously, it is a 'dangerous' time of year with all the holidays and the birthdays and stuff. You're a great role model!
