Monday Morning Weigh-In

I really did not want to weigh in today! I really thought that I did not do good enough to lose anything, yes I stayed in my points, but I just really did not have the kinds of food that I wanted to eat. I got on the scales today and said a little prayer, like that was going to help me! But you know it did make me feel more peaceful about the number. I know you want to know,right? Well, I weighed in today at 305. I only lost 1 pound, but hey I really thought I was going to gain a pound! So, I guess that number don't look too bad. I guess I am just so used to losing at least 5 pounds a week that one pound kind of scared me. I like to read other weight loss blogs they inspire me. One is the WW Chic. She is a WW leader and writes and has really neat stuff in her blog. This week she has an article about 1 pound of fat. Nobody ever wants to lose one pound of fat they want bigger numbers so the one pound of fat just stays around. Makes me kind of think how I felt when it was only one pound. You should go and read that article here. It will really make you feel differently about losing ONLY one pound! So, I celebrate you being gone, you ONE pound!!!!!
This next week I am going to try harder and make sure I exercise!!! I have a tough week because I plan to eat some birthday cake and ice cream! It is my son Neil's First Birthday. I should be able to celebrate my babies first year, right? I guess that is why WW gives you the 35 flex points to be used each week. I try really hard not to use them but this week I may have to use them. Because not only is it my baby's first birthday, but it is my anniversary. My baby was born on our anniversary. So, I got two big things to celebrate this week, but I know I can do it! Lot's of you tell me that I am an inspiration to people who come to visit me, so I guess that makes me feel better. Well, I feel the same way about all of you that visit me. You all really help me a lot! I knew I needed to do something. but I just had not figured out what or how until Tammy stated on her blog that she was starting Biggest Loser and they were doing a format that I love-blogs! So, we all can encourage each other. Thanks to all of you for being there on my BAD days as well as my good days!

Good job Lorie. I think losing a pound is great. It is so much better then gaining or staying the same. Keep up the good work.

I am behind on my blog reading..."1" lb. is a loss, no matter what. I look at it as another step in the right direction. The scale is moving down instead of up. You are just doing awesome. You have such a great attitude and inspire my weight loss. I dread getting on the scale in the morning cause I didn't step up the exercising like I had planned on doing. I know, I am tired of excuses, but I hate to exercise. You Go Girl!
