As the clean up process came into place, I went totally overboard on my eating this weekend. I went through a drive-thru about 2 times (yikes) and then I treated myself to a chocolate milk shake one day. I think it was the rush of being done with my Day Camp experience, that I really didn't want to be "religious" in my eating and I was being very lazy as I ventured into those fast food outlets!!! I will not let the old me come back into play. I did get on the scale yesterday and I am seeing a 37 pound lose - that is still good, but my body can so feel the effects of the extra sugar, oily extras and the lack that I have not been drinking enough water!!!
The journey is going to continue for me. Me - the laughter, the fun, the Mom in me, and for sure going to keep dropping the weight. Can't believe how much fun I am having losing all those extra pounds.
Plus side of the week - I went shopping yesterday. Purchased just a few size 18 tops and bottoms (plus side - buy 2 get 2 free)!! I realized that even in my size 24 pants I should have been wearing something higher, but always told myself that I was not that big. Yep - I was, but will never go back!!! Excited to see that 18 fit onto my body! The store was also having a sale on over-the-shoulder-boulder-holders so I was measured and went down a full size!!! AWESOME!!! Feeling recharged and now have a few new items to keep me excited about my weight loss journey!!!
Another plus side - Mer and I get to have a full weekend together. Camping at our favorite spot!!! Russian River Style!!!! This year it is with more family then friends, but the group is going to be a plenty! We are going to have a blast!!! I can't wait to see Mer and share some good quality time with her, take a walk into town and not be as winded as I was last year. Plus, she gets to see how well I have been doing and I get to see how well she has been doing!! Since January it has only been a few hours here and there, but this will be more then 72 hours!!! I can't wait - can't wait - can't wait - wishing that it was Friday already and I was there!
To all you Bloggers - I do plan on accepting all the awards we received in the last two weeks. Those I will get to this week. I also plan on doing a lot of commenting in the coming days. My computer at home has been acting funny and not sure why I can't comment - hoping to get that fixed this week. Missing all of the other blogs - want to see more of some new ones - and well, it will be nice to finally get a chance to read all of your ups, downs, downs and ups, exciting news, time to time updates and so much more!!!
Staying MOtivated MO
*** Editors Note - now I can't post comments from my office computer - so many of you have so much to say and I have missed it - I have to keep signing in, but then it kicks me out - going to have to research to figure out this problem ***
