Failed again...

Welp, this is fun, kids, no??

I have been on a major failure spree.  I'm so disappointed in myself.

But... today I start again... summer SUCKS for losing weight.... let me tell ya.

Anyhoo... 30 days starts again today... and Monday I will survey the damage of my indiscretions.

This is ridiculous... I gained a pound.

No, I wasn't as strict as I should have been (but still was following the plan mostly!)

No, I haven't drank as much water as I should've been.

Failing at exercising...

As the title suggests, I only managed to get in 1 day of exercise this week.  Though I've remained mostly on point with my food.  One day I did go 5 grams of sugar over my limit....

I've also slowed down my water intake.  I can't seem to get above 40-60 oz.  But I'm going to continue to try to remember to.

I've realized that this method of weightloss is a slow goer.  The reason why I avoid slow and steady type plans is because I know that if things aren't progressing as fast as I'd hoped, there is a high likelihood of me just giving up.

But, I'm not just gonna give up this time.  This diet seems like something I can pull off for a longer amount of time....

I don't feel deprived or anything... especially since the carb allowance isn't as oppressively low as Atkins.

So... I continue on... let's see what Monday's weigh-in brings...

Thank you for being a friend...

So yesterday, a friend of mine was in a really sad mood, so I bought stuff to go make sundaes at her house to cheer her up.

I bought a low sugar ice cream and used minimal toppings  but I'm fairly certain I went over my sugar a bit yesterday.

But, it had to be done.

I think I'll go for a walk outside...

Welp, it's weigh-in day.

I lost 2.4 lbs. from last week.

I'm not gonna lie... I'm a bit disappointed.   Not sure why, I mean it's a good amount... but I did so well all week ... at that rate I won't lose this weight for 4 months.  Heck, I won't even reach my short term goal by the end of the 30 day challenge!

As you see from my previous post, I was hoping to hit goal in 3 months.

That just means I need to step up my game.  Today I start exercising and I'm gonna try to keep my carb intake to 4 servings vs. 6.

I did soooo well yesterday!

There was soo much yummy food goodness around and I was right on point with it!

So, so proud of myself! :D

Tomorrow is weigh-in!  Bring it on! :D

So far so good...

But... this is the eve of destruction.  Or so I'm trying to avoid.  You guessed it....

Tomorrow we are going to the beach -- ugh -- and there will be LOTS of food, snacks, desserts to be had (the group we go with are VERY accomplished packers!)

Anyhoo... today two things happened that made me go all "FML":

1) I went to the store to pick up a "slimming" bathing suit.  FAIL.  I looked horrible.  I'm not sure what kinda "slimming" the makers of those suits were shooting for but I'm guessing it's for those skinny people that complain about their "pooch" on their stomachs that, to me, look more like all they need to do is take a shit.

2) I went and saw my daughter's wedding pictures.  Exactly what I didn't want to see, I saw.  Fat mama.  The only pics that are semi-redeemable were the candid ones and that's just because at least in some of them I had a remotely flattering angle.

Look, the way I see it is this... I only want to lose 45 lbs.  I see bazillions of "I did it!" websites where people lost 3 times that much in a year.  I think it's reasonable to shoot for losing my 45 in 3 months.

Though, I'd prefer 3 days.  ;)
