My Weight Loss

TOM Thursday

Just going to take the first part of this blog to thank Mother Nature for bringing my monthly gift this morning. You are oh-so-thoughtful! Next time, don't forget the chocolate!

OK...Anyway, enough about that...

Well other than TOM, when I stepped on the scale I weighed in at 155.4! Woo hoo! I lost another 2.6 pounds this week! Let's just say I am thrilled and that was unexpected. I didn't exactly stick to the program this week. I even told my JCC that I would be happy to lose between 1-2 pounds because of my big loss last week. So yeah, I am happy. I am now 15.4 pounds away from my goal. That is a little sad, only because I was 7 pounds away from my goal just a few months ago. I let stress from school get the better of me! Oh well! I can't dwell on that. I was going in the wrong direction, but at least I am headed in the right direction now!

But since it's TOM, I want to eat. I have been kind of snacking today. That's not good, I know. I probably should have made some carrot fries (right, KateRN?). My patience is not real good today. It's not good most days. I looked up Bible verses on the computer pertaining to patience this morning. I need patience because I have two little ones. I also came across a site about positive discipline. A lot of people swear by it. I think I am going to try and pick up the book this weekend. I think it might help me. I really don't want to fly off the hinges every time my children do something wrong. I also need to learn to pick my battles. I am not good at that either. But, at least I am aware of my issues and I am going to fix them.

I ordered my Slim in 6 DVDs this morning. Now I just have to wait 5-7 business days for them to arrive. That is one good thing about it being TOM right now. That will be behind me and I will be ready to start a new exercise program! YAY! I gotta do something soon. I don't want to go back to my couch potato days.
