I'm Back!!!

Wow it's been almost a week since I have posted and my body can certainly tell. I will be catching up on all of your blogs throughout the day...I can't wait to see how you are all doing!

Last Monday night, there was an unexpected death in Scott's family so Tuesday night Scott and I hopped on a plane and headed for Toronto. We just got home Saturday night at around midnight so I have been trying to recover from the 17 hour drive home ever since! What a long week. So that is basically why I have been in hiding for the past week. The whole family basically picked up from New Brunswick and headed to Ontario so we were all cramped into Scott's aunt and uncle's place. My diet consisted of whatever they offered to feed me. The majority of it was egg salad sandwiches and hot dogs and hamburgers...thrown in with cookies, ice cream, jelly rolls and more cookies of course. It was a disaster diet wise. We had nothing to do since we didn't take our own car up so we basically ate and ate and ate. So I decided to face the music this morning and jump on the scale. I was NOT happy at all but I wasn't surprised either. 7 lb GAIN......7 lbs!!!!!!! I know some if it must be water retention so I am not too worried about it coming back off. Weight that comes on very quickly also tends to leave very quickly. I am back on my meal plan today and I am as devoted as ever. I have a wedding to go to on July 7 and I am gonna need to take off this 7 lbs to get into my dress!!

My plan for this week is to stick to my meal plan to a tee and also get in some has been about 2 weeks since I have gotten a good round of cardio. I feel awful. I hate the mirror and I feel lazy and sluggish. It's so easy to get out of routine isn't it? But it's so hard to get back into it!!! Grrrr....why do I do this to myself??? I am just praying for a good weigh in on Saturday. I know I can do it, I just need to stay focused on my goal. I would love to see the 140s in the next few weeks but the way I have been going, I'm more likely to see the 160s!!

I need some motivation......anyone??


  1. Sorry to hear about the death in the family - that must have been hard to deal with.

    I love how determined you are to get back on track - and you will! Just like that.:-)

    As for motivation - there's no one more inspiring than you.:-) Look at how far you've come, and how close you are to your goal. A *little* push, and you're going to be there in absolutely no time.

  2. sorry for your loss.
    sounds like you're ready to get back on track!

  3. Sorry for the loss.

    I have to say though, you are completely right. Weight that comes on fast like that won't stick around. need motivation? maybe a little bit of cash stuck to the fridge with a note that says "new shoes or outfit at XXX weight" =0) I find that makes me less likely to open the door. hehe

    Good luck!

  4. I think you can see the 140's in the next couple weeks, just gotta stick to that plan of yours to a tee, even on the weekends (as hard as that might be!). Getting back on a schedule should help tons, it's amazing what getting off schedule does to my eating!

  5. so sorry to hear about your loss.

    You will be right back on track and lose those 7 pounds in no time!

  6. I'm sorry for the loss.

    You don't sound like you need motivation as you already have it! Good for you for staying so positive. I hope you have a good weigh in on Saturday!

  7. Sorry to hear about the death.
    You are totally right about weight that goes on fast, comes off fast. I find for me half of it goes the first week, and the other half is gone the second. You can lose it before the 7th with no problem.
