They're Back.....

Not the pounds, thank God!!! It's the evil, crappy lady troubles. I am in horrific, crippling pain. My drugs need to kick in. I feel like I have this problem more than once a month.

Today is weigh-in day. I make myself do it even when I know it is not going to be pretty. Just to recap it has been a LONG, tough week. Working at school, lots of meetings. I had to eat out lunch everyday. I did pretty good with choices (even though it was still more calories than I wanted to spend) with the exception of the day my team wanted to eat at Taco Bueno. It is delicious food but NOTHING there is healthy. So one bad meal and the day I had a small slice of cake. I could have easily turned this down but it was my first day with my new team and it was someone's birthday and I did not want to be rude. I only ate half. I have worked out EVERYDAY. Like I said, if I can make it through this month and get into a routine I think I will settle back into losing about 1 pound per week.

I was just thinking to myself this morning......God let this pain stop so I can walk and please do not let me go back up over 200 this week. I stepped on the scale and 197.5 came up (multiple times) which means no change. I will GLADLY take that. Not only because of the week I had but also because this is the first time in months I had lady troubles and did not go up a pound.

I will power through like always. The funny thing is that I feel so bloated and fat but other people do not see it that way. You know the presentation I had to give? I saw lots of people I have not seen since June. I was told more times Wednesday that I was beautiful than I have heard in my entire life. People can be so sweet. I know that my exercise has really changed my body (and face) even if the scale has not moved much lately. This is partially how I know that exercise is the key for me.

I have to get going to work but I want you all to know I have been reading your blogs. I am humbled by the awards that have been graciously bestowed upon me this last month. I am not ignoring them, I just need to work on that post this weekend. So THANK YOU to all of you for your continued support and kind thoughts. I could not have come this far without your support!!

I always find it interesting that I can feel totally bloated, but other people can't tell.

I hope you feel better by later today!

It seems like every body notices if you turn down a piece of cake at a party, but nobody cares if you leave half to three-quarters of it on your plate.

Good luck surviving your brutal week.

Yay for a good weigh-in...sometimes staying the same is a victory - weird, but I get it.

How nice to get all those compliments - you really do look wonderful!!!

Congratulations on surviving a crazy busy week. It sounds like you stayed in control which isn't any easy thing to do when life gets so hectic.

Do your students start back on Monday? I hope you have a great group this year.
