Better than a poke in the eye (but not by much!)

Since yesterday was the last day of July, I weighed myself.

I was only down 6 lbs.

Of course, since it's that time of the month, I'm probably retaining at least 5 lbs of water, but it was still a bit of a disappointment. I am surprised that I wasn't more upset about it, it's probably because the little voice in my head keeps saying things like: "Hey, at least you didn't GAIN 6 lbs" and "It's okay, we're still on track to lose 50 by October" and while I do appreciate the supportive nature of the little voice in my head, I'm pretty sure that all of this positive-ity is what got me into this mess in the first place. Hmmmmm......

Anyway, in case you were curious, I've now lost a grand total of 35 lbs. Only 115 to go. Sigh.

Yea, Good for you! I am so thrilled that you are hanging in there. And 6 pounds is great - no it's not the 25 of last month but it is still coming off and that is fantastic. I am so darn proud of you for your determined work. Maybe if I touch you and Sue I can become inspired to get started.

Love ya,g

I think it's amazing that you aren't overwhelmed with the big number. Every loss is a victory, and it's CERTAINLY better than gaining (which is story o' my life right now)! Congratulations, and I'll jump on the band-wagon with you once beebee is born... I'm thinkin' 3 more weeks.... :)

Thank you for stopping by my playground. I do appreciate it. Keep up the good work on the weight loss. Takes time but worth it. Aloha :)
