Tomorrow is Monday and time for a fresh start

This weekend has been full of food temptations and I have given in waaayyy too much.  I feel full and heavy.  Tomorrow morning I will weigh myself and tackle the week anew.  I am ready for this.  I am also a bit excited because I am taking my dear mother to the airport on Tuesday and she will be gone for almost a month!  If you have read my posts in the past you will know that my mom is a bit of a saboteur.  She doesnt see it that way in fact she does compliment me on my weight loss often.  She means well, its just that food=love to her.  It is a vicious cycle that I am trying to overcome.

I have planned out my meals for the week, well, actually for my husband and son.  I am going to try and have some Lean Cuisine on days I cook special food for them like chorizo burritos and cheese, potato, beef casserole.  I will just feel better being in control of my eating that way.

So, despite the fact that tomorrow morning the scale will not be happy to see me I am still very optomistic.

Have a great week my dear friends!

55 down

Hey there, Hi there, Ho Ho Ho there.  lol

Yesterday was my weigh in day and I lost 3 pounds this last week.  Best loss in a long time.  Last monday was the first time I came away from a weekend with a loss instead of a gain.  I am not quite so hopeful this Monday cause I have already eaten more than usual today AND my mom is making sugar cookies!!!!!  I have had 2 and I am going to try my hardest to not have anymore but man oh man it is soooooo difficult.

I also have to say that I had a bad stuck incident.  A day or two after thanksgiving I was eating some tri tip and I ate too fast and ended up kneeled down over toilet.  It was not fun at all.  I had another incident but not as bad as this one.  I guess that means my band is about right huh.

I am starting to get comments on my appearance, usually at church when I am dressed up.  Here is a pic of me last sunday.

I did feel pretty good that day.

Oh my gosh.......... I have to tell you what just happened.  Here I am sitting in my room and my mom comes in holding a plate and looks at me and says "Sweety.....You have lost 55 pounds and I just want to tell you how proud I am of you."  and she proceeds to tilt the plate and show me a huge sugar cookie heart she baked for me.  OHH MY GOSH.  I smiled and said thank you.  Am I the only one who thinks this is totally twisted?  My husand comes out of the bathroom and looks at the cookie.  I told him what she said and he said "here, I will take it"  and I said no, i wouldnt want to hurt her feelings so he offered to eat half.  Here it is

I managed to consume 1/3 of it before my son saved me from myself.
Every day is a struggle to make the right decisions.  I will have to make up for the ones I made today.  I know that and I will have to live with that.  I can and will and I am not going to beat myself up for it.

Have a good one people!
