This a.m. B said to me,

"Mama...don't you miss when I was four?"

Me: "B, you STILL are four."

B: "Yeah, but don't you miss it?"


On a different note, I am not weighing in this week. I read somewhere that you can get a "free pass" on the weight check.

I am giving myself a pass.

I don't need a scale to tell me that Mexican Villa (again), chicken Alfredo, chips and dip, and sugar cookies aren't going to give me the weight loss edge.


So, this week, I am opting out. First time ever. I deserve it, right?

Like I deserved this past week of bingeing.

I just wish I could purge myself of the guilt.

You definitely deserve a pass! I had my son's birthday party and my anniversary this weekend and I ate McDonald's, pizza, cake, ice cream and m&m's, so I understand! I have lost 16 lbs. so far, and I gave myself a pass on weighing in this week also!

Thanks Kelli!

After Oriental Inn today, I am solidifying my choice NOT to weigh in. Tomorrow I will start anew.

Great job on the 16 lbs! That is wonderful! I know how hard it is. I am currently down 22.5 lbs but I have been squeaking by each week, barely seeing the scale move at all. Of course, next week I will be doing good just not to see it go UP!

I missed you last night! I finally got a 5lb star!!

new way of thinking

not weight loss

think of it as releasing weight.....

(losing it keeps the mindset that it might be found again, LOL)

I believe that knowing you have a reward/treat planned for each weekend, is motivation to stay on track all week. This way, you can have one prepared (figuratively, or physically have one made).....and not go overboard.

You can do it!
