We're moving!

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

The boo & I decided to move on Thursday of last week - and we're gonna be in our new house tomorrow! We've already started moving stuff in.. and we'll stay there tomorrow night :). I'm so excited! It's not an apartment, so we wont have to worry about making too much noise, AND there are washer & dryer hookups, so NO MORE PAYING FOR CLEAN CLOTHES!!! Yay!

Anyway, gotta work on some more packing.. how are you doing??

One cup of noodles is one serving.
Replace half of that cup of noodles
with half a cup of vegetables, like
zucchini. You'll save the calories,
and get the added benefits of veggies.

Many of life's failures are people
who did not realize how close they
were to success when they gave up.
-Thomas Edison

A single battle lost, but not the war.

Hey strangers! I'll just jump right in..

I'm sad to report that I've gone back to how I was completely.. my eating is out of control and I work out at most once a week. There's not much doubt in my mind that I've gained back most or all of what I'd lost. I haven't weighed in awhile because I'm too scared of what the scale will say :/. The last goal I posted was to lose an additional 10 by Halloween. I'm going to modify that goal, though... to 5 lbs. So goal weight of 229 pounds by then. I'm going to give myself a couple weeks to get back on track.. so my next weigh in will be Friday, October 16, and I'll post updated pictures then as well.

The 2 things have given me hope and strength to pick myself back up are the Biggest Loser starting (however silly that may sound..) and comments from amazing people who have read my blog.. thank you so much. You'll never know how much it means to me.

Its hard to stay positive and motivated. But I've realized that I really do need accountability to succeed, and that is what this blog gives me. I feel like posting regularly is a necessary tool, at least for my journey.

Everyone has mountains to climb, and I know that I will make it up and over to the other side of mine.

So, here we go again...
