Tales from the Scales Tuesday!!

OK down to 185. 2 more pounds down. I did eat a snickers today, so I was a little concerned about getting on the scale and Mitch and I split a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut on Sunday. So maybe, I was, a ton concerned. I still ate mostly fresh food and didn't eat too late at night, I still enjoyed a few "goodies" here and there. I know that the time will come when I need to be totally strict, I am not ready for it right now!! I do know that the first week I don't lose weight I will be a little more strict. I am committed to myself for this weight loss, yes I want to look good, but even more I want to feel Healthy again!!!!! I must tell you that, this is the first time I have done "scale" weight loss and it is keeping me in check not to mention the blogging about it (that I have committed to being totally honest to)!
Let me also say, that I know life happens and I do eat "once in a while foods" more often than I like to admit, but I am not one to beat myself up over it!! So, I ate a snicker's, and at lunch (the next meal) I was back on track, not just giving up but continuing!!! Yes, I am patting myself on the back a little (I do have really long arms!!!!!!) I am really good at building myself up, the reason I am probably at the weight I am, I JUST DON'T SEE THE WEIGHT THE SCALE SAYS!!!!! But, I definitely see the sizes going up!! I have yet to see the sizes go down (STRETCHY JEANS STINK) and I have yet to see a mirror image change, but the scale has and right now my hope is in what is positive!!!!!! Thanks for listening to me ramble!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Weight Loss to all and to all a GOOD NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Great Job so far! I am not doing as good as you. I am at a stand still. I think I need to get out my journal from my first few weeks at weight watcher's and follow what I ate. I want to get back to losing again...I will, I just know it. Say a prayer for me...thanks.

  2. So saying a prayer for you now! You can do this

  3. Great job, Chrissy. As far as the snickers go, what works for me is buying the mini candy bars. My favorite when I have a sweet tooth is those Andes mints. But I just have one and it helps cut the craving without overdoing it. Sounds like you're doing great!

  4. Bravo to you on your weight loss! We all deserve a snickers bar now and then!!

    About me being real- I just don't have the time or energy to be fake. With me, what you see is what you get. I'm a real person with a real life. I think that's the best way to minister to people anyway. Thanks for the love!!

  5. Happy Weight Loss to you too! I love that idea.

    comparing two photos side by side is a great way to actually see what the scale says - I did that last week and was shocked at the difference.

  6. Congrats on your loss! Yeah, we need to have treats once in a while so we don't completely go off on a binge. Keep making healthy choices! :-)

  7. Great Job!!!
    I'm so proud of you!
    I let myself eat more this week...I splurged and has thai food with coffee icecream. It was heavenly.

    I think I have to wipe the drool off the keyboard now just thinking about it...

    I'm sure I'll go up since the monthly thing is near.

  8. Great loss for the week!! It's okay to have a treat now and then -- I'm a big believer (but not as big as I used to be!) in "everything in moderation." Keep doing the right thing and you'll see the change in the sizes AND the mirror. :)

  9. Congrats on your weight loss!

    I can't give up on foods like Snickers, either. And that's ok. We just have to keep our focus.

    Have a great week.
