25 down, and winner #3!

The winner of the Working Out Sucks book is comment number 4... Cai! Please contact me asap at skinnyhollie at gmail dot com, or on www.facebook.com/skinnyhollie!

And for the first two winners... I mailed your books today!

And I am pleased to announce that the scale is moving again! Today I was down to 294! That's officially 25 lbs down since starting this journey (again) on Novemeber 15. Today also marks FIVE WHOLE WEEKS without the sweet stuff or white/wheat flour. I'm finally feeling good about this process again.

Although I have to wonder if it's because I haven't been to the gym since Friday that my weight is dropping again? We'll see... I'm going to try my best to get in that gym again tomorrow.

Long story short... Well, I won't even tell the story, but my personal life took a major bad turn on Saturday night/Sunday. I'm sad, hurt, and disappointed.

But I'm not eating over it. Not at all. 

Because eating over your problems really doesn't make them go away, does it?

I'm learning that right now. Big time.

Again, my reaction has been the opposite of usual. I have not appetite. On Sunday, I logged less than 400 calories all day. Just couldn't eat. But since I know that's not healthy, I did better yesterday.

I also had a NSV today... I was able to walk through Walmart at 5 p.m. after a long, emotionally trying day and find that I didn't want any of the candy in the aisles. I didn't look longingly at it, and my mouth didn't water. I really felt indifferent. It was just candy. It didn't make me happy anymore, or tempt me. It was just colorful little wrappers that decorated the checkout.

I used to love candy. So that's huge for me.

Well, I'm DOG tired... physically and mentally. I've got to get some sleep tonight, so I'm off to bed!
