In the right direction

Down 4.1 lb this morning.

I'm thinking that my 2 lb gain last week wasn't a 'fat' gain because when I stepped on the scale the next day I was down 3 lb. So...that's kinda weird. But fine with me. Whatever...

The important thing? I'm back in the 180's. Outta the 190's hopefully forever this time. I'm just relieved that I avoided hitting 200. That would have been a real psychological blow. And I would have had NO clothes that fit.

Now I'm going in the right direction again thanks to my friend Colleen who challenged me to make June a completely OP month. At first I was not interested. Nope...I did not want to do it. However, as the day progressed, I warmed up to the idea and by the end of the day, I had entered into a contest with her and her sister to see who can do the best this month. So, I'm hoping June will be a jump start into what NEEDS to be my default setting. So far, so good. What I do know is that were it not for that and the need for me to be honest...I would never have stayed on track all week.

I figure I'm about 10 lbs away from fitting into last summer's clothes. Luckily for me it's been super cold so far this spring, so I haven't even wanted to wear them. There's still hope for not being stuck in jeans all summer.


  1. WOOHOO!!! I'm glad we're doing this too -- its keeping me WAY more honest than usual, which is tough, but hopefully will be worth it.
    Those old summer clothes will be fitting again before you know it.

  2. WELL DONE!!! Congrats!!!
