Weigh In Monday

I usually post a weigh-in on Sunday, but wanted to address the "big" question instead. So here's my weigh-in for this week.

I had a very good, on plan week with my eating. No off plan junk, no extras, no sugary stuff etc. I am not sure exactly what I weighed last Sunday as I was off plan and off the scale but it was likely in the 198 range. I did get back on plan and stayed there since last Monday, so I now have one solid week under my belt and feel much better. On Wednesday June 1 I weighed 195 pounds, and yesterday (and today) I weighed 192. So I have lost 3 or more pounds this past week.

Honestly I cannot wait to get out of the 190's, back into the 180's and 170's. I already feel better but I know I will feel awesome in 10-15 pounds. My clothes fit better and it is just easier to move at that weight.

I made cauliflower breadsticks for my dinner last night and it was awesome! I will try and get a post up with a recipe so you can try it if you like. They are very good but not *addicting* like regular breadsticks are. I actually steamed a whole, huge head of cauliflower yesterday and portioned out some for fake macaroni and cheese and froze the rest for cauliflower mashed "potatoes" (those recipes are in my recipe file in the low carb section... link is at the top of the blog under "Recipes.")

Not much else going on. Prepping for my daughter's last dance recitals, finishing up the last week of school for all my kiddos, waiting for a repairman to come fix my broken washing machine tomorrow, training the pup. Just life. Enjoy your day!

I used to read your blog a couple years ago when I was at the start of my own weight loss journey....It's been a while now and I just came back today. I am impressed with your loss!!!!! I saw the new picture you posted - AWESOME!!!!!!! Don't ever give are doing it!

I lost 40 lbs and am at the weight I'd like to stay at. Now it's just about making healthy/natural food choices and staying active!!

Good job on the loss this past week! You will b back in the 180's and 170's soon!

That's where I am right now, Lyn... trying to get back to where I was and where I know I feel better. It's so frustrating to get there and then bounce back up. I still marvel at a brain so invested in self-preservation that still allows us (or even drives us) to follow down self-destructive pathways. Here's hoping you continue with your good choices and get the results you so richly deserve.

Just chiming in ... I'm very large and my 14 year old is my height and stick thin. We draw a lot of looks. But now that he has epilepsy, he'll soon have a service dog with him at all times. That will just draw more attention our way. I'm not looking forward to it BECAUSE most people are judgemental. They don't know that I've lost weight, or that I battle a lot of problems.

Just a thought.

On a good note, I've been gluten-free for several days now. Just easing back into healthy eating. Won't weigh again for probably another week or two.

Thanks for more inspirational reading.Vee at

I feel your pain about your broken washer -- we have a broken dryer, which is not nearly as bad, but still a pain!
