Not a great week.....

I did make it to WW last week - the scale was 187.4, so .2 shy of 45 lb loss. But the scale did not stay there at all. I am on a new project at work and I've had internal and external meetings all week which had included breakfast AND lunch. And not enough exercise and not enough water. So as of this morning the scale was back over 190 and I've chosen to go running in the morning instead of going to WW.

Some people love the Great Plate WW meeting where you try to pre-plan your Thanksgiving plate, but I don't love it because I don't love Thanksgiving. I don't mind cooking it, I just don't love eating it. Stuffing is usually the only thing I want seconds off. A couple of years ago I stopped making appetizers so we would have more room for the meal. But oh yeah, I do drink egg nog while I am making the meal.

BUT on a good note, I am wearing a size 14 mini skirt (yep, a mini-skirt!) with my knee-high boots and a size L shirt today and I am looking skinny (though not really feeling it after all the crap I ate).

I am going to TRY to eat well in the next week, so when I celebrate 2 years with WW I can register a 10 lb weight loss for the last year (35 for year 1, 10 lb for year 2) and start the next year (the WW year) strong and hopefully in a year I won't only have recorded a 10 lb loss.

I am still here.....

I was hoping to wait until I could have a "before" and "1/2 way to goal" pic up from Disney before posting, but it has been such a crazy week and who knows when I will have time to deal with pictures.

We got back on Sunday night and I have been struggling to get back on track. At first I wasn't going to weigh-in until tomorrow, but on Monday I decided I just needed to do it. I was prepared for the scale to say 195, but it said 191. But I still hurt to be back in the 190s. But I didn't eat that well at Disney (but not that badly either) - But I definitely had dessert more than I would like.

As of Friday I am back down to 189.2, but that is still a 7 lb gain since September. A gain I really would love to see be gone by the end of the year, though I am not sure if a 7 lb loss in 7 weeks during the holidays is realistic. But I will just concentrate on living healthy except for the few select meals between now and January 1st where I will enjoy myself. And I will continue to run - I've got to do run 48 miles by the end of the year, which means I will have to have a weekly date with the treadmill in addition to weekend runs outside.

I'll be back soon with pictures!
