Weigh In Friday

Yesterday was one of those days. I stayed within my Points, but ate all day long. Emotions were heavy and food was my comfort. For about 10 minutes it felt wonderful and then I would come down from the food high and feel miserable. It came to a point where I just wanted to go to bed so that food wasn't in my hand, in my mouth, or on my brain. I knew if I kept it up that all the work I did this week would go down the drain.

This morning I woke up with a sense of doom. My dreams consisted of a scale, an extremely high number, and me breaking the stupid thing with a baseball bat. I turned into this 500 pound monster who wanted to rid the world of those awful inventions that make woman cry and obsess. I laid in bed for 15 minutes hoping to have some sort of loss, even if it's only 0.8 pounds.

I walk into the kitchen, reluctantly step on the scale, closed my eyes, and said a prayer to anyone that was listening. When I finally had to courage to look, I almost fainted. Down 6.6 pounds! I know I didn't lose 6.6 pounds in one week; I really believe some of that weight was truly lost the first week. I'm ecstatic!
In 2 weeks I've lost 7.4 pounds, one inch off my hips and thighs, and 3 inches off my waist. If that isn't motivation.....I don't know what is!

Oooh, Congratulations! That kind of loss is definitely motivation. :) We can help keep eachother on track with this wild-ride we call weight loss.

Another Hottie here, stopping by to say GO YOU!!! (what's your name? I refuse to call you "fat mom!") congratulations on your loss so far. I'm so glad you are blogging. Pick out a few blogs to follow. Link them in your sidebar, and you can tell at a glance when someone writes a new post. I have gotten more encouragement and motivation from reading blogs than from anything I've ever tried before. Actually that's how I found out about the Hot 100 challenge, from seeing it on someone's blog. Anyway... you are an amazing woman, I can already tell, and you are giving your children the best gift you could ever give them: a healthy mom! I'll be checking back to follow your journey!!

Thanks ladies for stopping by!

Cathy - You don't have to call me "fat mom". Just call me THE fat mom cause I'm THE greatest fat mom out there. LOL, just kidding. My name is Melissa. I do follow a ton of blogs, just haven't link them up on my sidebar. It's a work in progress. :)

I'm stopping by all of your blogs!

HOORAY! Congrats on the awesome weigh-in! I love the baby hippo picture. He's pretty cute.

I don't understand why the scale gets blamed - he's only giving us the facts. I guess that's why they say the truth hurts sometimes, huh?

I feel more great weigh-ins coming in your future!

Melissa, Good for you. Great loss this week. Keep up the good work and we are all following you on your Hot 100.

There will be l=many more wonderful losses in the future. I think that we can all call you a "Looser" now. Yeah!!!!
