Oh Snap Outta It!

Dearest Fellow Bloggies,

Somebody smack me. Somebody tell me to stop the destructive eating behavior. I always thought with final exams wrapping up my eating problems would be the worst... but it turns out after them.. my eating is even worse.

I thought my 25 pound mark was something that would make me feel accomplished, determined and proud but it hasn't helped me at all. UGH!

I am so bored. I am sitting here flipping through apartment listings and job listings (and of course everyones blogs). It's pretty terrible when you need both a job and an apartment. I'm feeling homeless, schooless (because I am starting another new venture), and unemployed. It sucks!

I haven't strayed TOO far from plan and have avoided an all out binge but it's been a rough few days. I have eaten a few offplan things that I haven't accounted for... for example: A couple bites of fried chicken(today) (I don't even like that!!?!!), a couple bites of coleslaw(today), A glass of pepsi (Friday), A burger king milkshake(Sat)... Some things have been figured into my daily point values... Some haven't...

I won't be suprised if there is a gain this week. I know this behavior needs to stop but even the crappy after feeling isn't fixing my slump.

I just don't know how to enjoy having some free time (and allow myself to get over this bad cold). The weather has been lousy. I have barely left the house for a few days except for groceries Monday and a Sunday drive (I had to get out even though it was SNOWING all day!!?!!). It is actually supposed to be sunny and warm tomorrow.

Time to brave the outside world again.
Time to enjoy life again.
There is more to it then sitting home and stuffing my face.

Yeah I think thats all.

Goodnight Blog (Time to get some shut eye)

Another 2.8 GONE :)

Dearest Blog:

Down another 2.8 this week. It feels great. Next week I'd like to be entering the 220's! I haven't been on that route for awhile... but I hope I don't overstay my welcome there either.

I've worked pretty hard this week, but not hard enough because I have been ZONKED from school wrapping up. I must establish some sort of regular exercise regime. I've really been procrastinating signing up for something.

That's right! I'm gonna KEEP ON TRUCKIN'!! Hope ya'll do the same.
See you soon!

My Jeans Ripped!!!

I was walking up the stairs when IT HAPPENED...I never thought I would be so happy to say that my pants ripped!!... but the reason they ripped was because I was holding them up by the belt loops to keep them from falling down (and exposing myself because they are very loose even when they were straight from the dryer)....and I heard the teaaarring noise.


I'm delighted. Must shop this weekend :) Needless to say I had to pull my shirt over the top of my pants for the rest of the day and avoid the stairs.... Buuuutt at least I can make myself spend money on myself this weekend without guilt because I actually do need some now!

A Loss!

I am so pleased with a loss of 1.8 this week. I had prepared myself to expect a gain from my chocolate slip up this week and lack of tracking. I want to have a really good week this week though so I get closer to my challenge goal so I have got to work hard this week!

On another note: I got into every school I applied to for my Bachelor of Education. I am in a state of disbelief and walking around feeling stunned... Now I don't know what one to choose. I am going to put off decision making until late next week to take the pressure off for exams and just try and feel good this week! Excercise helps relieve my stress and thats the plan :)

See you soon!

Dearest Blog:
Well I have got to say that I have been a naughty weight watcher this week. First week of the program that I have neglected to track. I have prepared myself to see a gain on the scale tomorrow. Annoying but I guess I have got to see it staring back at me to really make it click in!

I have been gorging on a lot of chocolate this week. (The man put the chocolate in my easter basket, I swear I would never have brought the enemy into my own house...I know better!)It's less than I would have eaten before so that's good, but I still must must must stop! The man has been away this week in Cuba for his sisters wedding and I have been stressing over last minute school wrap ups... so I think it has been a mix of lonely and stress eating. BUT I AM stopping!

On that note I have decided to take Tammy up on her weight loss challenge!

YES!! I will try as hard as humanly possible to get 10 pounds off by April 30th while competing with my exam schedule! It would be the ultimate to succeed in this and show myself that I CAN do this despite any distractions (I am a baaaad eater while studying but have been showing slight improvements). There are some tough changes and challenges coming... I can feel it... so I would really really like to succeed with this. Thanks Tammy!!(She really has been doing SO amazing.It's inspiring)

Until tomorrow morning,
