Snow Day! Plus Weekly Weigh-In!!!!

Well, they were right about the snow this time!  We got around nine inches, so we are snowed in again.  We stayed in yesterday because they kept saying the snow was coming.  We didn't really get any until evening.  Then it snowed all night!  School is out and my husband is home from work.

I love having them home, but it sure messes with my schedule.  They want food constantly.  Can you make me hot chocolate?  Do we have anything good to eat?  I pretty much give up on doing anything for the day.  No housework!!  I'll wait until I have the house to myself.  I still haven't gotten my workout in, but I do intend to do some in a little while.

Okay, today is weigh-in day.  I haven't felt like I have done very well this week.  I have been so busy!  We are getting ready for a trip to Florida for Spring Break.  My friend and her 18 year old son are coming to stay at our house to take care of my doggie.  I am starting to get really sad about leaving her.  She will be so stressed out without us.  At least she gets to stay in her own home. My friend loves her, so she will take good care of her.  

I haven't tried on any of my warm weather clothes, I have to get that done.  I may have to go shopping before I go.  I think I probably have enough size ranges that I can find enough for a week and maybe do some shopping in Florida.  I still haven't gotten a bathing suit.  I think I just keep putting that stuff off.  I told you how the week went last week, so I really feel like I am still off-kilter.  I am so ready to go away.  

Oh, I have been putting off telling you about weigh-in?  I didn't do a good job of exercising last week, and my eating wasn't great.  I think I have gotten into a fairly decent eating routine and not really going way off track.  I just feel bad when I eat something that I really don't think I should, but I told you I intend to enjoy life and make this a life long routine, so I will just make small permanent changes.

Well here goes!

My weight - in for the week is  176.0.

Starting weight - 184.5
Week one - 180.0
Week two - 179.5
Week three - 179.0
Week four - 178.5
Week five - 177.0 
Week six - 176.0

Well my loss is up to 8.5 pounds.  Still seems incredibly slow to me, but is right in line with doctor's orders.

My regular readers know that my scale weighs three pounds light and I like it.  I will to out of the 170's much quicker on this scale!  I know, I know, it will only be in my imagination, but that's okay with me.


  1. Those socks have to weigh a half pound! :-)

  2. Well you deserve to have a vacation in Florida...first having to put up with snow STILL!!! Then your weight loss is incredible and don't tell yourself any different!

  3. Your first photo is gorgeous! :)

    Hey, a pound lost is nothing to sneeze at! Do that for a year, and look at the massive amount of weight lost! :D

  4. and I'm already fretting about having to board at least 2 of our 3 dogs for our 2 week trip in the fall. :( So I feel your pain on that!

  5. Once you've reached your goal you won't even remember it felt slow. Sending over a high five for another pound lost.

  6. One pound at a time -- that is the best way to take it off as it is how you put it on! Congrats and keep up the great work!

  7. Way to go!!!!

    By the way I nominated you for the Liebster Award check it out

  9. yaaaay!! Nice loss! And you thought you did did great!!

    Take care,

  10. YAY to the loss! That is a nice healthy respectable loss!!!!

    Get out there and shop...I've seen some REALLY cute bathing suits this season out there in the stores!

    1. You convinced me! I bought two bathing suits today. I wasn't majorly excited about them, because there is still way too much flab around. I need exercise, exercise, exercise!!

  11. That is some serious snow for the end of March!

    Congrats on the weigh in result.

    Hope you are having a lovely day.
