I said at the beginning of the week that Friday was going to be my "official" WI day from now on. The scale said 311.6 this morning, which is a 2.4 lb. loss since Wednesday! I know I'm still losing water weight like crazy, but it still feels good to see this holiday weight going bye-bye. Now, I only have 5 lbs to go to get back to where I was before the holidays.

I stayed OP yesterday, despite my rocky start. I have found that when I TRY to adjust my mood, that I can make myself feel better. Yesterday afternoon Clyde switched cars with me while I was at job #1, but he forgot to put my uniform in the car for me. So I had to drive all the way home to get it and was late for job #2. I was so mad, but on the way home I made myself calm down. It was an accident, and he was trying to be nice by leaving me the car with the heat. So I knew that going home and chewing him out wouldn't do anything but cause an argument, and it really wasn't necessary. It sounds silly, but it made me feel good that I took control of my emotions and put them in check.

I had my healthy food and snacks for work last night, and stuck to them. I ended the day with 7 cups of water, 5 f/v, and 1.5 servings of dairy.


  1. Way to go on the weight loss and adjusting your mood. I've had things like that happen and like you said he meant well. Sounds like things are looking up, it really is all in how you look at things.

  2. Not silly at all, in my opinion! I think it's awesome that you are able to take control of your feelings and put them in check! :o) That is no easy task, my friend!

    FANTASTIC loss as well! I'm so proud of you! Keep up the great job!

  3. My WI day is Friday too. We can share tears or joy together. LOL!

    Congrats on the loss. Keep it going day by day.

  4. Great loss!

    And congratulations on reigning in the emotion!

    We really CAN control our happiness in many respects.

  5. Great to see that you are trying to drink a lot of water. That is definitely key to any weight loss program!

    Good luck on reaching your goals.
