Well, I can't believe it has been 10 days since I have posted.....maybe that is why I have been fighting this weigh loss battle! I need to be better with my "journaling" about this whole thing...

We were on the road 8 out of the last 10 days or so. The girls each went for separate weeks to the inlaws house which included lots of driving and eating fast food! We also went and visited for 4 days. It's just so hard to diet when you are not at home and on the road. I did run and walk a couple of the days we were there so it had to of helped a little!

The weather is soooo hot! I did get up this morning and go for my 2 mile jog and 1 mile walk home. It was hot, I must have looked like I was going to fall out. An older gentleman was walking his dog about 1/3 of a mile into my jog. I was cordial and said hello through my gasps for air. I had finished the whole 2 miles and had just started walking for my cool down when he pulled out from one of the streets in his car. He rolled his window down and asked me if I was doing OK and if I wasn't too hot or overheating.....I must have looked like death! LOL! Of course, I told him I was fine now that I had finished! The easy part is walking the mile home for the cool down. Of course, that is my favorite part!

The girls and I are leaving on Thursday for a 10 day trip to my parents house. I pray I can stay on top of this thing. I can not gain weight back like I did the past 10 days! I just can't! I've been working so hard and I can't keep re-losing the same 5 pound over and over! When I weighed this morning, I was back within 1 pound of what I had lost before the girls trips.

My stats as of this morning are 8 pounds lost (it was 9 a couple weeks ago...UGH!!) and a total of 6 inches lost!! WOO HOO on the inches! Prior, I had lost 3.5 inches so I almost doubled this. At least my clothes are getting bigger even though the scale isn't going down as fast as I would like!

I also bought a book at Sam's for about $12. It is Body for Life for Women....I'll let y'all know how it is! I hope there are some pointers in there for the eating and weight loss.

Ta Ta for now!


  1. Just keep hanging in there girl! Even if it is coming off slowely at least it is coming off. And the fact that you are losing inches is definitely a good sign. Have fun at your parents and make healthy food choices!

  2. You're building muscles with all this exercise and that weighs more than fat, right!!? Hang in there - I'm using you for inspiration!
