Burst into Summer Check-in #2

Burst Into Summer Challenge

So I’m not too happy to post this check-in. Honestly, I feel in some ways I’ve dropped into an emotional pit the last 4 or 5 days. I’m still waiting on test results so the waiting has my anxious. Illness has also made for some not too great communication on the home front so that has added to it. And the scale this morning proved the effects of emotional eating. Sigh.

I had a gain of 1.6lbs. So I’m back up to 135.8. I am not a happy camper. But the good thing I can take from this morning is a swift kick in the rear and motivated to make sure it doesn’t happen again. I’ve got my water bottle full and apples in the fridge to snack on (instead of chocolate and peanut butter deliciousness that seems to call my name when I’m stressed). Seriously, I need you all to find me on twitter in the afternoons and ask me what I’m drinking! If I know someone is going to be asking, I know I will stick with it!

This week’s mini-challenge is to eat  your fruits and veggies. Fruits I typically don’t have a problem with but veggies are an issue so I will have to work really hard this week to make this a habit!


Here is the weekly damage stats:

Starting Weight: 135

Current Weight: 135.8

Change: +.08

    I’ll ask you what you’re drinking, if you ask me how much I’m drinking!! How things get better with the medical tests and waiting.

    I am looking for you on twitter right now, hopefully I will remember to ask what you’re drinking!

    You can do it! I hit 141 a couple weeks ago and nearly freaked out. I am now really serious about dumping those 10-15 extra pounds. I’m on day #3 and it’s HARD! But we can do it together. I’m back to 137 now… so getting there. We can motivate each other!

      Sounds like a plan! I was 125 when the year started which I think may have been a little low for my post-menopausal self but I would love to get back down to at least 130!


I love hearing from you!
