Don't step on it... It makes you cry

I might be doing the slowest weight loss EVER!!! I have to laugh, that's all I can do. Don't get me wrong, the weight is still coming off, but boy oh boy it is painfully slow... I know I could speed it up a bit with a little more activity thrown into my schedule. But I have to tell you, my schedule is full. Ridiculously full, almost panic attack level of full... Last week I had most of my days packed with three or more appointments. I can't even begin to calculate the amount of miles I put on my car last week.  I wake up at 6a.m. every day just so I can have at least 20-30 minutes to myself before the craziness begins. The last bit of noise from our kids starts to trickle down around 9pm, every night. To say that I am pooped is an understatement. So the thought of throwing in an hour of exercise right now, not an option.

So I will watch the numbers slowly go down, and be thankful that they are at least going down. Because just a few months back I was on the other side of that equation. That is no fun! We are back to eating regular foods which has also been a bit more of a challenge. A challenge that we are working on...

The warm weather has definitely arrived and thank goodness I can fit into a few of my crop pants... I haven't even tried the shorts yet, because I hate to admit it, but they were snug last summer before my big weight gain. So for now they will stay nicely folded on the shelf in my closet, keeping my winter clothes company.

So lets do this!

Weigh In
Starting weight March 19 = 175.8 lbs
1st weigh in on March 25 = 167.7 lbs
2nd weigh in on April 1 = 166.1 lbs
3rd weigh in on April 8 = 165.2
4th weigh in on April 15 = 163.8
5th weigh in on April 22 = 162.9
6th weigh in on April 29 = 161.3
7th weigh in on May 6 = 161.6
8th weigh in on May 13 = 160.7

A loss is a loss and I will be happy with my nine tenths of a pound loss. I have at least another five pounds to go, but I would be really excited to shoot for another 10 pounds... Only time will tell, and now we are getting ready to embark on camping season which means SMORES!!! We better go camping where there is a lot of hiking!

Total so far:  15.1 lbs !!!
