Total Weight Loss

Saturday Scale Report

I weighed 178.0 this morning.  I spent my early 30's stuck at 177 and thought I was fat.  Alas.  That is just 13 pounds from the goal the doctor set for me, and 24 from the goal I set for me.  The closer I get to those goals though, the more I think my goal should be more like 145, particularly when I see BMI charts.  But...I don't want to set unrealistic expectations and start thinking I've failed as I did before.  I'm telling myself now, that if I don't lose another pound, I'm still successful.  Now if I could just make myself believe it.  :)

On a happier note, I've been to Publix and loaded up on fresh fruit for the week.  J-boy has even agreed to do his own modified version of the 7 day diet with me starting on Monday.  He's not going to do that vile, nasty soup either.  He makes a fairly nutritious vegetable soup that he is going to use for his base.  I can't get past the tomatoes.  That, and having all the food stirred up together like that.  I have control issues.  I need to know what is going in my mouth!!

I had another successful visit to Stein Mart.  I got some really cute tops.  Suddenly last week none of my tops fit.  I still have a lot of t-shirts, but since I work in an office in a management position, I don't get to wear those to work often.  It seems like all along this journey, one article of clothing is suddenly lacking in my wardrobe.  First no skirts fit, so I made a run on Goodwill.  Then no shorts, so I went to Ladies of Charity, a local thrift store.  It is my favorite, but it is only open certain times of the year.  Today I needed blouses for work, and I saw SM was having a 12 hour sale.  I got 7 tops that are stylish and suitable for the office.  Four of them were on sale, and the lady in front of me had a spare coupon she shared with me, so I got an additional 30% off.  I like it when that happens.


  1. I LOVE Publix - wish I had one. Thanks for the vitamin B6-B12 suggestion on my blog. I do take B12 and tend to get very lax about it when I'm traveling. Good news is I had lost 2 1/2 pounds this morning so as I knew in my head, it was water weight/salt weight/who know what weight!! It still messes with you when it happens.

  2. I love thrift stores! Just scored big on patterns there today!

  3. Sharon,
    Congrats on the loss. Those hiccups can be so frustrating. It is hard to push through them.

    I love Publix too!
