Not a happy scale day

So I gained 1.2 pounds this week. Ouch. I kind of thought I’d been doing well, but getting on the scale forces a little introspection. Let’s take yesterday…

Didn’t eat breakfast. Just coffee coffee coffee. Come lunchtime, Taz was driving me crazy so I packed up my notebook and went to work at the restaurant, intending to have a nice salad with some grilled chicken. They were, however, serving mushroom swiss burgers as the lunch special and I never pass … Read More »

A woman with a plan (kind of)

So, I managed to lose a whopping 0.4 since my last WW logging which, much to my dismay, seems to have been 9/28. I must not have put 10/4’s in there, even though I blogged about it.

Back at it

I got sidetracked with RWA and a ton of other stuff going on and fell off the weight loss plan. Fortunately, I was lucky and didn’t gain any back, though I didn’t lose much, either.

Not sure where I left off, but this morning’s weight (178.8) is a new low. That puts my total loss so far at 46.2 pounds, with 8.8 left to go to meet the goal I set in January. (Since I’m not breaking the glass stones … Read More »
