A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand. ~Author Unknown

It's weigh-in day over at Our Wicked Weighs. Weigh in day is EVERY Friday. If you need some pep talking, info about any of the diets, or just moral's a great place to go.

I didn't lose any weight, or at least I don't think I did. Scales can be funny that way. I got on it three times and had three different readings. 193 (which I love, can I just take that one?), 195, and 195.5. None of those are any higher than what I was last week which is fantastic.

I am slightly more motivated than I have been in the past to keep going and do more. I have not been working out AT ALL. But I think I need to start. And my eating habits are slipping back into old habits. The food is so good, but it doesn't make me feel good anymore. Actually, it makes me feel sort of crappy afterwards. THAT'S what I need to remember..the crappy feeling after.

It's been many years since I put all this weight on that I can't remember that last time I felt as good as I do now. I was pretty much resigned to that fact that my clothes were going to be forever tight, there was just no way around it. But now that I have shed 15 pounds (I started at 211) and the new jeans I just bought are already loose on me I want to keep going. I like this feeling, I like having clothes that fit, I like having more energy. People are noticing the weight loss and asking me about it. My husband is just happy that I can go into a dressing room without bursting into tears(ok maybe I didn't cry, but I never came out in a good mood). So, I must keep going.

Oh, and my hair is now P I N K. If you haven't already you can read about it here. I love the color and I LOVE the cut. Here's a cool picture, just for you.


  1. Your hair looks really cool!


  2. Dude, I love your hair - I think it looks awesome!

    Congrats on your weight loss. It is very hard to stay motivated, but feeling good sure helps, doesn't it?

    Keep it up!

    Here by way of NaBloPoMo - ww group.

    I have to weigh in tomorrow (I put it off today), wish me luck.

  3. I lost 75 lbs on Jenny Craig last year. This year 50 lbs have already returned. How fair is that?

    Hubby has always wanted me to have pink hair ever since that skinny punk Gwen Steffani had her pink hair. I don't look like Gwen Steffani. So I got my nosed pierced instead. Imagine the other mother's faces at PTA! I kept it for about 10 years and then finally took it out this past year. I'm over the rebellion, but I'm sure glad I did it.

    I love your pink hair. I think it suits you perfectly.

  4. you hair is amazing!

    that is so inspiring!


    And that is really cool that your husband is metal too :)

  5. Congrats on the success so far! Any success is a big success in my book. I, too, have found that going back to eating junk makes ya feel all crappy inside. I still love my sweets, but after taking basically all of October off of healthy habits to partake in food debauchery I found myself feeling blah, both physically and emotionally. This month I'm back at and working out and I am determined to drop 10 lbs by Jan. 08. Over the holidays?? Yah, it's reaching, but we can do it!
