Week #15

This past week was fun. Well, I guess not so much the week, but the weekend. One of my best friends, Becca, got married. Yay! She married Brandon Deane in a private ceremony somewhere where there was an orchard. I say somewhere because it was, as stated, a private ceremony, with only immediate family present. The reception was a bit more public. It was held at the American Legion Hall in Madison. It was so much fun! I danced my butt off! It was hot, so I got a wee bit sweaty, but it was so much fun. There was the Chicken Dance, the Cupid Shuffle, the Electric Slide, the Cha Cha Slide, YMCA, the Twist. Everyone was hurting after the Twist! I got to wear the wrap dress that I had mentioned a while back and I got a lot of compliments on it! It was such a great time, and I didn't eat too much food. And there was A LOT of great food. There was salad, potatoes in herbed butter, chicken, prime rib, and dinner rolls. I had a good salad, with a small amount of potatoes and a piece of chicken. They also had a chocolate fondue fountain, which I had some marshmallows, pound cake, and strawberries. Then there was the cake...the CHOCOLATE cake. Beccas really likes her chocolate! (which is fine, because Brandon likes his meat, having three plates of prime rib!) The wedding cake was chocolate, with alternating layers of chocolate fudge filling and chocolate mousse filling. I had the chocolate mousse filling. I figured it'd be less damaging than fudge.
And after all weight. Okay, I know I've been going up and down these past couple weeks. I've slipped and gotten back up. I've gotten back into the gym after my back injury and have kept with it (in fact, I think I may end up going on Tuesdays now, too, just to up the ante). It's been really hard going through this journey. So, prepare yourself for my weight...
235!!!! Yes! I have broken through! I know it's only one pound, but it's lower than it has been in nine weeks! Can I keep it down next week?

(P.S. Eric...Kim Berry (used to be Russell) says hi. Her husband (Todd Berry) was the one who catered)

Week #14

Hey, guys! I don't have much to tell you this week, so I'll make this one short and sweet. I'm still at 236. Sorry to disappoint you, Eric. But at least I've stayed here this time and haven't gone back up. I'll keep trying for next week. I'm back in the gym, so that'll help. It won't help that my friend is getting married this weekend and there'll be great food at the reception. But I'll only have one piece of cake, I swear!

Week #13 (yep, late again)

'Ello, loves! Hope you had a great week. I'm gonna get this off my chest now so I won't leave you in anticipation...yet again, there is no picture of me this week. I forgot to get someone to take it for me. Sorry...I may just wait until week #16 to post one.
Anyhoo...not too much happening. My back's feeling better, so I'm able to get back into the gym. Yeah, not so fun going back after taking two weeks off! I only went half an hour, but I'll get back up to what I was. My weight is back down this week. And I found out something...Now, see, last week when I weighed in I was at mom and dad's. I figured since I was already there I would use their scale. Well, when I saw the numbers on the scale, I freaked (hence the ominous entry last week). Something seemed a little fishy, though, so I tested it. I weighed myself at mom and dad's and then went home and weighed myself on my scale the same day in the same clothes. My theory was's scale is shows five pounds more than what mine does! So, really there was no need for the omission of weight last week. Well, I take that back. I had actually gained two pounds...but at least it wasn't the SEVEN I originally thought!
So, by going off of MY scale, I am now down to 236. Yay! I know I've been here before, but hopefully I can get below it by next week. That is my mission should I choose to accept it...which, of course, I do!
