One week to go

I have a feeling that I will be lucky if I lose a pound this time :(    Still no motivation. I think I have had too much stress in the past few months and that has taken over my enthusiasm towards losing weight. I'm not giving up, and I know I still have at least 5 weeks to go out with a 'bang", so I will do my best.

Had a wonderful two days off BUT major pig out.......With that being said and only having two weeks until weigh in...I have my work cut out for me!!!!!!!!!!
Emotional eater again....only this was Happy!!!  Now I feel the guilt and mad at myself :(   But not going to beat myself up too much . Today is a new day and I'm going to get back on track AGAIN!

Finally....better late than never....I'm back to working out! Weight loss is going ever so slowly but I still am very pleased with myself at this point. It's a start! I didn't put all this weight on in 6 months and I'm not going to take it off but as long as I lose a few pounds a month, that's o.k. Not going to beat myself up over something that I am making progress with...maybe not as fast as I wanted it but it still is an accomplishment to me. Maybe it will take me a year, but I am o.k. with that! :)

Working hard to eat right. Not interested in working out at all at this point. :(   Maybe/hopefully I will get back on track.

My father passed away last week and as I said before, I haven't been working very hard at dieting and no working out at all the past week or two. Life goes on and I need to take care of myself.  So I'm back on track.  I won't be the biggest loser BUT I am determined to get back to my normal wt. by the end of this year. I know I can do it.
