YIKES TOM is horrible and my weigh in....New GOALS! :)

First the Weigh in....
I lost...hmmmm weight!
LOL I have no idea how much though.
I actually was 1lb I think!
Which is freaking AMAZING given that I am, well, ya know...
not enjoying this "time of the month" to put it nicely! heehee
And my eating was horrible a few days and great a few others
and I only worked out...hmm I think ONCE!
I am blessed I didn't gain 10 like I would normally.
Onward to my new goals!

It is a pretty exhausting and discouraging task to try to lose:


All too often I get discouraged because my eyes are focused on the BIG picture and not the next step. So...I'm DONE doing that! Yupper...DONE!

I heard a quote recently, the woman was talking about having to walk up a very steep hill EVERY day with her young kids after a long day of working on her feet. She said that when she looked up at how steep that hill was and how much further she had to climb...she felt exhuasted and hopeless about reaching the top...EVERY DAY! BUT she realized that if she looked down and focused on ONLY the NEXT STEP she didn't even realize it was a hill she was climbing and before long...she was at the top! WOOHOOOOOO!!!

So...I am going to work on looking for/at my next steps and not at the mountain I am climbing!

I'm breaking my mountain into 10 pound hills! 15 of them or so! :) (from highest I reckon...the details will be adjusted as the finish draws nearer)


I've lost 10lbs so many times in my life I KNOW I can do that! :)

Than I'll just do it a few more times!!!

I am going to update my sidebar as often as I remember (weighty facts) and keep track of my progress a bit differently. As of today: July 26th I am 6lbs into my first 10!

And there ya have it!
