Week #8 (not on time)

First of all, I'd like to let you all know that there's some disappointment with this blog entry. For one, I forgot to get Mike to snap a picture of me, so I'll have to wait until next week to post one. Another is that, not only have I not lost weight, but I have gained back some weight yet again. I gained back two pounds, making it 240. And this very reason is why I always end up quitting. I get to a plateau or I start yo-yoing and I figure it's not worth it, so I stop. I'm not making excuses for myself, I know that it's my own fault. I can't blame this on mom's good food! I've kept to my not-eating-after-eight rule, but I've gradually started back to nibbling here and there and starting to screw up my portions again. I also haven't been pushing myself as much at the gym. I think I've told you that I've started the elliptical. It's great, because it's burning more calories, but because of that, I figure I don't need to stay the full hour I use to. I'm slowly going back to my old ways.
But I like what I've been doing. I've never lost so much weight. And they say that if you diet/exercise for over three or four weeks, you'll be more likely to stick with it. Well, I'm twice that time frame, and I'm not ready to quit yet. I WILL lose the weight I've gained this past week and more by next week. I know it!


  1. YOU CAN DO IT!!! Don't give up.:) We're rooting for you and can't wait to see you succeed!

  2. you said it. this is the most weight you have ever lost. it's incredible. you set the bar high for yourself so makes sense, any setback seems like a disappointment. but whatever challenges you face along the way does not negate the successes you have had. hang in there and know we all love you and believe in you!

  3. Well...I couldn't have said it any better as these lovely people have already said, and even what you have said. You have attained nearly a third of your goal, which is awesome, especially in just two months...some other questions to ask...are your clothes fitting better? You mentioned it that one time, but any more success? How about your energy? I would imagine that you probably feel like you have more energy with all of this working out. We are so proud of you so far, and are still so excited to see where else you go!
