Day 64 - Weigh-in

Weighed in this morning at 275.8 - which is a 2.6 lb. loss for the week. I have now lost 57.2 lbs! I'm still feeling great, and controlling my eating. I will admit that I had a bite of cake on Saturday night - ONE BITE! My best friend's mom got married, and it was wedding cake. Everyone insisted that it was bad luck if I didn't take a bite, and the vodka/cranberry I was drinking made me a little more agreeable, lol. So I got a fork and took one little bite. It was good, but so sweet. Funny how I could have ate half of that cake in one sitting a few months ago, lol.

I am now in my 3rd month of clean and healthy eating and am so glad I made this change. The only thing I struggle with at this point is... eating! I have been so busy with teaching summer school, taking care of my children while they are out for the summer, and taking college classes toward my Master's that sometimes I am ***FORGETTING TO EAT***. WTH? It really surprises me sometimes, but I guess that's what happens when your life doesn't revolve around food anymore. Food isn't my friend, companion, or way to escape problems anymore. It is fuel for living. But I do know that my body needs this fuel, and that skipping meals is no good for your metabolism. So I am trying my best to do better.

I didn't walk as much last week because of the weather, and also because of a tattoo I got to cover up my ex-husbands name that was on my lower back. The cover-up tattoo is way bigger than the old one, but is really pretty. Thing is... it hurts like hell and has been a nightmare! The first two days it was red, swollen, and oozing slime. I had it checked to make sure it wasn't infected. They said it was normal, but now it's scabbing and itching and driving me nuts. I have been warned not to do any activity that will make me sweat during the healing process, because it might damage the tattoo or cause infection. So hopefully in a few days it will be well enough to get back to a normal exercise schedule. Note to self: NEVER EVER AGAIN GET SOMEONE'S NAME TATTOO'D ON YOUR BODY.

I hope everyone is doing well... and if you're not... DON'T GIVE UP!


  1. Congrats on the loss, you're doing amazing!

    Great job on the loss. You're doing a fantastic job.

  4. Congrats on the great loss!! WOO-HOO

    I don't forget to eat anymore, but I used to. My husband could never believe it. (His fat wife, forgetting to eat? Huh?) lol

    I took a crumb off my son's glazed donut tonight. I mean a tiny crumb. The sugar was so strong it actuall tasted gross. Isn't that amazing about your cake?



    'nuff said.

  7. Eating has direct effect on your body. I was overweight just becoz of my food habit. I used to eat out regularly but soon realized the bad consequences. Now, I eat balanced diet and low carbs.

    I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks and I am feeling really energetic and positive toward life.
    Thanks for your great post. Keep posting...
