Weigh In

:sigh: I knew this would eventually happen. I knew it. And I know why (I think) but I'll go into that in a little bit.

156.6 today. That is a GAIN of 1.4 lbs. EEK!

Why you ask?? Three reasons I believe.

1.) I was NOT careful this weekend. It was a hectic weekend. I really didn't eat but 2 or 3 pieces of Halloween candy. But we ate out for lunch both Saturday AND Sunday. I had high calorie breakfasts both days and I did NOT measure. Not to mention, I've discovered/learned that when I don't sit down to eat, I don't feel satisfied. Even if I'm not hungry, if I wasn't paying attention to what I was eating, I'll feel like I still need to eat. And that is what happened this weekend. Chips and Ice Cream. Not good.

2.) Have not been exercising. BAD me. I know I know. I need to fit it in. I need to start waking up and getting my butt in gear. I need to start walking during lunch or breaks at work. I need to start doing something! I did start walking the stairs at the Subway station in the morning. It's equivilant to 3 stories. Yup. 105 stairs. Holy cow. But every little bit helps right? Now I just to need to add more.

3.) AF is due to arrive next week. It's a week before, let the cravings begin. :ugh: I started breaking out so that is a tell tale sign. Ugh.

So not that those are excuses but that is what I need to work on and be more concious of. I can do this. I've lost 18+ lbs in 8 weeks. It's only going to get harder since I have a bday party this weekend, and next weekend. Plus I have a graduation party to go to next weekend. Then we are going to Disneyland for Connor and the twins birthday and then Thanksgiving. Then it's going to be Christmas time and all the goodies that entails. Oh help me!!!!

Can't wait til the time AF stops making her visits... I know all about the breakouts, cravings, etc. It never seems to get better... Hope this week goes better for you...

Sounds like you have nothing to worry about because it sounds like a lot of water retention. I'm betting you'll drop all, if not most, of that weight by the weekend!
