Weekly Weigh-In (#40 and #41)

Today I'm down from last week, but up from week 39.  153.3.

Last week was ugly. 156 point something. I just couldn't think of anything nice to say so I took a week off from the blog. I was SO mad.  It's a new week, now...

I'm still here.  Still working the plan.

I did really well with exercise during my business trip and now that my audit is over I'm excited to pick it up again starting today.  It made me really happy to be doing another healthy thing for me, so even though the scale did not reinforce those good feelings, I'm thinking there were too many other variables going on even though I worked hard to stay on plan.

We usually have two Thanksgiving celebrations, and one of these was yesterday.  I ate mashed potatoes, stuffing, and gravy, turkey, sweet potatoes and frog-eye salad.  It was all so good!!   I enjoyed every bite!  I did eat to feeling very full but not uncomfortable. 

One more dinner on Thursday... I'm planning on watching portions even better and stopping in time to feel satisfied after eating, but not "very full". 

Dennis and I are neck and neck on our competition, lol.  He would have had me beat  yesterday, but the mashed potatoes set him back a bit.  (insert evil laugh here).  So next week is the end of the competition to lose 10 pounds.  I'll be ecstatic with anything in the 140s.  It's  been fun weighing in with him.  He did a pre-victory dance yesterday to taunt me... I laughed because he was being very funny and congratulated him on his success.  It was good to do that little check before the feast and it helped me stay on course.

I wish I had some magic words of encouragement to firmly lock those 140s in for you.
Kudos to you for getting back to exercising. I STILL struggle with that. I have been cleaning like a mad woman this week. It think I went up and down the stairs a hundred times today. That should count for something, right?
Are you going home for Thanksgiving? I feel the need to remind you that you're both always welcome here. Sunday family dinners, holidays, any week night, whenever.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Hahaha...I said "both". Of course I meant all three of you!

Thanks Trish. I'm sure it's just a matter of time and the right effort and I'll find my groove again.
I love that we're invited and always enjoy the company when we go. I've been thinking recently that this is a good opportunity to connect with family (especially for Kaylee this year) and that we should make it a point to go soon. Kaylee emphatically agreed. So we'll see how homework and housework is looking for a dinner in December. Thanks again!

The big plunge...
