Did I Hit 100?

Of course not. I was within 2 pounds of that milestone. And today? A gain.....+.2 pounds. Not a lot, I know, but how disappointing. That number does not change how I feel when I put on my new, smaller clothes but it is still a little sucky. Overall, I am not too bothered because this was the week of lady troubles and it notoriously slows down my journey at least one week per month, if not two.

I would like to hit 100 before October 1st (just about two weeks). Why? Because I am going home to visit. I have not been home since Christmas (that was 40 pounds lost) which is when I started this blog. I am from Michigan and have lived in Texas for the past 9 years. I see my family/mother twice a year at most. I am going to surprise my mother. My friends and some other relatives are aware I am coming. My mom is having some kind of hand surgery today and will be off work for 3 to 6 weeks. She will be bored. She has been dying to see me and does not think she will see me until after Christmas.

I am so excited!!!! I cannot wait. I hope she craps her pants. Well, not literally. Now I am trying to decide how to surprise her. I want to do it in public somewhere but not sure how yet. We will see. My grandfather almost ruined the surprise already so I hope it just stays a surprise.

So a slight gain. I brush it off. I used to go over everything from my week in my head to see what I need to do differently. The truth is, I work my ass off. I stick to my calories pretty well (except for cheat meal). Even if I ate a few extra baked chips or sprinkled a little too much cheese, I more than make up for it in exercise. I workout everyday. In fact yesterday I did an hour of turbo, a 15 minutes hardcore abs class (which I never tried before because I thought I could not do it.....I was rockin' it - impressed myself a little because man, do I have belly rolls) and did the Cha-Cha slide 3 consecutive times with my class. That is a 6 minute song, so by my count that is an extra 18 minutes of cardio (every little bit helps). At least this year when I did the song and I went all the way to the floor, I could pop right back up. Weight loss helps us in more ways than we realize.

I do hope you all had a better loss this week than I did. Looking forward to the weekend!

Have fun in Michigan, I will be there as well at christmas, but I am from the other side of the state.

I think its is funny how alike we are, but unlike you I got pregnant fat. And the sad thing is not one stranger asked when I was due with my second.I remember being 3 days over due, at a store buying baby clothes and the clerk said "who are you buying for?" I realized I just looked fat not pregnant.

.2 pounds might just be a little extra water weight from your woman troubles...you will lose that plus more next week:) Your doing great! I am trying to lose at least 20-25 before Christmas so that I can go home and show it off:)

Melissa said...

Also, wouldnt it be fun to surprise them Biggest Loser style? You know how at the end when the final four go home, they all arrive in a limo? Wouldnt your mom be like, "Who is pulling in my driveway in a LIMO?!" LOL

Keep up the great work!
