F$#&%@G Water Weight... Grrrrr.

My feet and ankles have been swelling
since mid-last week. 

And I have no idea why. 

I am very careful with my 
sodium intake, and
I'm drinking LOTS of water.

Yet, each night, my ankles
look like this.  

And you can just imagine what 
effect it is having on the scale.

HOT DAMN!! The Girl Can Run!!

I am shocked.

At myself.

Friday I walked 4 miles, 
jogging a little bit of it.

Sunday I walked just under 2 miles,
running most of the last lap.
Bad weather forced me to quit.

Monday I walked/ran another 4 miles, 
and I did the same again tonight.

Week 16 Weigh In -

This morning for my 
official Weigh in, 
I only lost .8 for the week.

Not even a pound.

But I'm not letting myself get 
too down about it.
I know that I have been
retaining water, because 
my feet and ankles have
been swelling slightly.

So I have high hopes for 
my weigh in next week.

Somebody Get Me Some Pain Meds - PLEASE!

I am SO SORE today!!
Last night after my 
daughters Softball game
a friend and I went to
the school track and 
walked for a few hours.

I have no idea how many
loops we made around it,
because we talked the entire
time which really helped the
time fly by.  Twice, we made
ourselves run.

17 Years of Shame Come To An End.

I am only 2 pounds away from 
reaching my 50lbs LOST goal!

The time has flown by so fast!
I began my weight loss journey
on January 3rd. 
A New Year....
A New Me.

I can't believe how far I have come
in such a short time. 
And I'm not referring
to just pounds.

I still have a long ways to go....
I need to lose another 105 pounds 
before I reach my goal....

Me In All My Wiggly Jiggly Glory -

I bit the bullet this morning
and Posted Pictures of me
here on the Blog. 

I HATE them! 

My last photo taken I had
lost 20 pounds. 
My intention was to take
new photos every 4 weeks.
Somehow that didn't happen.

I do need to take pics again
because I have lost another 
20 pounds. Actually, 22.5.

I Suck As a Tooth Fairy

I do not have a great record as a tooth fairy.  
It's not horrible...... but it's not perfect.  
Last night was no exception.  

My son came out of the bathroom
after taking his shower, 
and showed me the tooth he had just lost.  
I said "Wow! You'll have to be sure and put that under your pillow".  
He left mumbling something about hoping the tooth fairy 
would leave him a $20 bill.
(YEAH RIGHT!!! )  

The night before, My daughter had a friend spend the night, 
and my husband had set up
a small tent in the living room
so the girls could "camp out". 
 Earlier that day I had told the kids
they could sleep in the tent that night. 
NOT realizing the tooth fairy would 
be CRAWLING her fat ass
in there to retrieve a tooth.

Week 14 Weigh In -

This week was so frustrating for me.
About halfway through the week
my Wii Fit said I had lost .4lbs.

By Friday,  I had not lost any more weight.
I was VERY disappointed.

So I was not expecting much when
I went for my Official Weigh In today.

But Lo and Behold 
I lost 3.5 pounds this week!!!!


I have now lost 42.5 pounds!!!

My mom told me that this is common.
That sometimes your body holds on
to the weight until that last day or two
then it suddenly drops.
She said that is why they recommend
people NOT to weigh themselves 
throughout the week.

After a couple of disappointing weigh ins 
lately, I am THRILLED with my loss this week!

Batter UP!!

Yesterday my daughter had her 
first Softball "Game". EVER. 

It was actually just a 
"mock scrimmage" against
one of the other teams in her age group.
(7-8yr old)
The girls did very well!
Especially considering that this
is the first year for most, 
if not all of them.
The team they played had experienced 
players that have played together since T-ball, 
and has already competed in an all-day
tournament this year.
Our girls have only had 4 practices so far.
My daughter has only had 3, 
because she was sick
and missed one practice.
It was fun watching them.
Our girls had NO CLUE what they 
were doing, it was like watching 
chickens running around with their
heads cut off.

Dear God: Please Save My TaTa's

Yesterday I had to go get my first Mammogram.
Not fun.

First.....I'd like to say
that I think all men should
periodically have to go get
their penis's smashed.

Before getting the girls 
manhandled and smashed 
flat like a pancake,
the girl doing the mammogram
had told me she would show
me the images when she was done.

She didn't.

Instead she gave me some boobies
to play with and practice on.
There were 3 of them on a board.
One breast had no lumps.
One was a fibrocystic breast.
And the other was a breast with lumps.

She left the room
to show the radiologist 
my results.
