Wednesday Weigh-In: 1/30/08

Today I weighed in at 290.0; a loss of 3.5lbs. I do apologize for not catching up on people's blogs lately; things have been pretty busy at work and in my social life around here.


The FANTASTIC
I lost 3.5lbs this week.
I am wearing makeup almost every day.
My cold's gone!

The Good
I am going out and having a blast these days. I am barely home these days - I actually schedule home time.
Matt pushed me really hard this week and I succeeded big time.

The Bad
I missed three days of gym.
I ate out a lot (but obviously I didn't do THAT bad...)
Friends may be leaving work. :(
I got a blister last night while walking around and it broke open - ouch!

The Ugly
I drank twice this week instead of just once.
Work is nuts right now. If I have to go to the 7th floor any more times this week, I'll shoot myself (not literally).

Well done Michelle! You know, you have a very realistic and healthy approach to this - work hard, eat well most of the time, but still live your life.

Hope the blister heals quickly!

Three and a half pounds - that's great!

Your 'good' list sounds pretty fantastic to me, I have to say.

And your bad and ugly lists ... here's my opinion which you can take or leave ... eating out and drinking isn't bad or ugly, as long as you're within your caloric range/points and as long as calories/points for those treats aren't replacing calories/points for fruits and high fiber stuff. We're allowed to live our lives - eating out and having a drink every so often is part of that. At least for me anyway! I personally just have to remember to make good choices when I do that stuff (grilled lean meats, light beer or wine instead of sugary mixed drinks, etc.).

You're doing so well! Keep up the good work.

And speaking of work, hang in there. It sounds like a stressful time.

Congrats on a fabulous loss! I know you are saying some things are bad and ugly but it really sounds like you are finding balance in your life and lets face it, whats life without living!

Great job! It's nice to drink a little at times and enjoy life. You're making great decisions, so the bads aren't too bad! Way to keep up the good work.
