What is this?

These are what I put on when I went into my closet on this New Year's Day.  What a suprise when they fit!  I was going to just try them on to see how far I needed to go before I could wear them.  Yes, a size 10!  I don't think I could fit into a regular size 10 yet, these are the stretch ones (no elastic just material)  Makes me want to do good all day when I look in the mirror.  I have two days before I weigh in again.  I skipped last week, but I think I maintained.  I am glad to have all of the holidays and food behind me and ready to jump in with both feet.  I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store!  Happy New Year everyone!

Busy, busy, busy

I am still here and have not stopped since school was out.  We have been enjoying basketball games and tomorrow night out high school is in the Championship game.  I have been redoing my scrapbook room and will try to post pics soon.  It is so clutter free!!  I am weighing in next Tuesday.  I think I stayed the same over Christmas so I skipped this week and am ready to start strong!

Week 3

I was a bit bummed when I only lost 1 lb on today's weigh-in.  Then I looked at my dates and because I have not weighed consistently on the same day, I am a bit skewed on weeks.  It has only been 16 days since my first weigh-in.  When I thought about it that way, I felt much better.  I will be more consistent when school starts back up and the new year is here.  Yeah for 1 lb!

Friday I was feeling like I was retaining a lot of fluid.  I looked online to see how to get rid of this and amazing what I found out.  Drink more water!!  I know, they say drink your water, and I really do like water.  I think sometimes we just have to come to these realizations on our own.  I started my day off with a big water bottle and kept drinking all day.  I have peed all day long!  I do feel better tonight and will do it again tomorrow.  It will be interesting to see what Tuesdays weigh-in reflects with the water consumption.

Challenges are something we all face daily.  My challenges this week have been Christmas parties.  I teach fifth and sixth grade gifted students and this week they each had their Christmas celebration.  We ordered pizza and watched a movie.  There are also the many gifts of chocolate I have received.  It sits on my desk and is ever so tempting.  I did eat two candy cane Oreos yesterday for 4 points.  They sure were good.  Today I have my meals planned out so that I can go to my staff party this evening at a Mexican restaurant.  I still need to do a little research to know what I can order.  Oh the challenges of the holidays.  I am glad I started at the beginning of the month with some motivation to rock the holidays!
