Perty by Thirty Week 42

This week I am only 8 pounds away from my Thanksgiving goal to hit 100 pounds lost. that only leaves me 4 weeks, so I need to lose 2 pounds each week. With Halloween and all the candy I'm afraid I may be sabatoged! I'm already eating way too much candy the kiddo got from Trunk or Treat this weekend at church. Even if I hide the candy I still remember it is there and go get more!

Hopefully I won't let the candy sabatoge me and I can keep up the losing.

This past week I lost 1.4 pounds, bringing my totals to:

Perty by Thirty -- 92
BlogapaLOSEa -- 12 (I'm off to go check in on my competitors' progress)

Perty by Thirty Week 40

Well, I didn't mean to put off posting again this week, but I did...accidentally. So, here I am to tell you that I did something this past week in my weight loss journey that I've never done before. I did not lose or gain any weight. I stayed exactly the same! Amazing, right! I thought so.

I do have to admit I was a bit disappointed. Despite the fact that I walked four days last week, I didn't lose any weight. However, I do believe it was my own fault. I have been having a very difficult time with my eating on the weekend. I have been wanting to eat everything I can get my hands on. Due to that I think my weight loss is struggling.

Maybe I will do better this weekend. I will be visiting my parents and hope to be too busy to eat! :) Wish me luck!

Perty by Thirty Weeks 38 and 39

Oops, I never got around to blogging last week. Probably because I didn't want to admit that I had gained 2 pounds! I was very disappointed in myself as I had been doing so well, but over the past few weeks I have been slacking off. Darn it, those Oreos tasted SOOOOOO good. But, not good enough to make it okay that I gained 2 pounds.

So, luckily, I took charge this past week and lost those two pounds, plus some, to the tune of a total of 3.2 pounds this week. I was THRILLED! And honestly a little shocked, especially since I wasn't great over the weekend.

The past week has showed me how absolutely necessary it is for me to have a friend along for the ride with me on this journey. I joined Weight Watchers after seeing a friend's progress she was having. This friend has been my lifeline at times to keep me on track.

We decided we need to have goals to celebrate our milestones. We are currently planning to have pedicures together when the first person hits 100 pounds. I am currently only 12.2 pounds away. Hopefully by Thanksgiving that pedicure will happen. Too bad it won't be sandal weather.

We are also planning to take a long weekend trip to the beach next summer to celebrate both of us reaching our goals. We are certain we will both be to our goals by next summer and are looking forward to celebrating together.

If it wasn't for having someone to hold me accountable on a day to day basis, I may not be as far along on my journey as I am now.

For the BlogapaLOSEa challenge I am supposed to post a picture each week. Well, I don't have one right now. If I waited to take one and get it posted I would probably be waiting for awhile. I'll try to take one this week and get it added soon.
