Week 6

I'm a day late for my "Week 6" post about my weight loss journey...  Sorry about that!  Between having a few inches of snow yesterday morning, and me not feeling the greatest - I skipped my weigh-in appointment.

But no worries!  I went in today!

I was a little nervous.  This week wasn't so good...  I stayed on plan, but have felt like I was coming down with a cold.  No energy.  Not hungry, so forgetting to eat at regular intervals.  And lots of evening meetings, which really screws up my one healthy "real" meal of the day. 

So, I didn't really think it was going to be a good weigh-in.
And I didn't lose any last week...
So, I kind of set myself up to be disappointed.  (Why do we do this to ourselves?!  Why do we always assume the worst?  Geesh.)

I wasn't disappointed.

In fact, I was pretty pleased!

Another 3.5lbs GONE!  (Making a total of 14!)


I re-evaluated the things that got in the way last week - mostly, my meals weren't simple enough.  So, I bought mostly bars and shakes from Medifast this week (easy, peasy - I can eat these anytime, anywhere).  And, I'm planning more evening meals that make enough for leftovers - which I'll keep for my later nights, so I don't have to cook a whole meal when I get home at 8pm.

I think those two things will get me back on track.

Phew.  I love the feeling of relief - knowing I didn't screw it up after all!  Ha!

Oh!  And...  Today, I was getting ready to go out with the hubby and decided on a whim to try on some of my old jeans... 

Good news?  They fit!  Well! 

Bad news?  I didn't realize how worn and threadbare they were in certain places...  In the trash they went...  Ugh. 

I did find one pair of smaller jeans that were actually a little baggy!  They'll do for now - but they make me laugh.  A Goodwill shopping trip may be happening sooner than I thought!

Things I am thankful for today:

1.  Waking up, laughing at our crazy dog.
2.  Having coffee with the hubby.
3.  Finally saying some of my thoughts out loud - and having them supported 100%.
4.  More Godly "nudges."
5.  The relief of succeeding when you thought you wouldn't.
6.  -3.5!
7.  A 2.5 mile walk with the hubby and the dog.  Very nice!
8.  Another 2 episodes of "Downton Abby" watched...  Heart-breaking!
9.  The band, "Alabama Shakes."
10.  Receiving Valentines from Elly and Sam!

QotD:  What' the most embarrassing purchase on a recent credit card statement?
Ha!  We cut up our credit cards a year ago!  So, I don't have any embarrassing purchases recently!

I know, right?! Maybe I should just stay in a slump for awhile... Seems to work with the weight loss! LOL.
