Today I weighed in at 261 pounds! That's 1 pound down from last week! To make the deal even sweeter, that's 11 pounds lighter than I was when I started my own weight loss journey mid March. On March 13 my Dr told me I weigh 272.5 pounds and that if I didn't start doing something soon I would be in some serious trouble. Now I'm already down 11 pounds!!! I know today that right now my own weight loss is because I have been given the Grace of God...and Mikey - So thank you God, and thank you Mike - I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you.

By the Grace of God...and Mikey
So as I'm sure you read in Mike's post, last week was a bad week for me. I came to the realization that I really do have a problem with food. I used to joke about being addicted to junk.....truth is that is my reality. This week, and I won't go into details, I ate junk pretty much the whole second half of the week. I go out with Dave or stop somewhere on my way home...and all the food decisions I made were very very bad ones. Let's just say that in 3 days I managed to use my WW flex points for this new week and last week, plus use up all last weeks exercise points! Needless to say I felt very defeated, and very, very ashamed that I did not have the self control to take that stuff out of my mouth and say no. Mike and I talked about it a long time at the gym tho, and believe you me, after a workout like Friday, I've learned my lesson. I'm making some changes. Starting this week I too will be on a 6-day a week work out routine, no more pizza and tacos and burgers. And....Sigh...no more sodas. How I will miss my Dr Pepper. I'm also changing my weigh in days to Sunday. I feel like this will help me better focus on my plan for the new week because I'll have a whole day to think about it.
