Weigh Day (week forty-nine)

Sorry for the late post, folks.  I failed to mention I was going camping over the weekend with my daughters’ girl scout troop.  Me and 30 girls under the age of 11 in a room for two nights.  Needless to say, I did not get *nearly* enough sleep to adequately feul hiking, swimming, dancing, playing, roasting marshmallows, and painting nails.  I survived, though.  Guess that is what really matters…

I worked hard last week.  I attended bootcamp on Tuesday and Thursday, and I trained with Denise on Wednesday.  Three days in a row with Denise was awesome…and it was intense.  I am; however, looking forward to getting back into my regular routine again.  Between vacation early this month and camping, my routine has gone pretty far off track.  That bothers me to a degree, but it also helps me feel like I am in better control of my life than I realize.  The reason I say this is simply because I am continuing to lose…despite vacation and camping…despite family functions and holiday celebrations…I have learned how to cope with these things and still come out on top.  This is huge!  Not that I am perfect, I am certainly not.  I still have weak moments, I probably always will, but I am learning to manage them so they do not consume me any longer.  Yes.

As for weigh in…

203.6

That is 2.2 pounds down from last week!  I am certainly happy with that!  My total for 49 weeks is 111.4 pounds!  Insane!  I could not possibly be happier…really.

Realizing that 52 weeks is just around the corner…I really, really, really, want to be under 200 before that happens!  Ideally, I would have liked to lose 120 pounds in 12 months, but I seriously doubt that will happen.  So, I am just going to shoot for being *under* 200 pounds by the time week 52’s weigh in comes.  I should be able to pull that off easily, right?

I have some other things coming your way (hopefully later today)…
