What The Hell Was I Thinking?

So... I mentioned in an earlier post that 
I am the Head Coach for my daughters
Peewee Cheerleading Team. 

And I am really having fun with it. 

I've spent nearly every day choreographing
our Cheer Routine and making up 
arm motions to new Cheers.

Then I had my daughter record me
so that I could see how the arm motions 
of the new Cheer I made up looked like.


I look HORRIBLE!!  
Yes...... I have lost 69 pounds. 
But HELLO!!!!
I still have 84 more to go!!!!

And I have to get up there in front 
of all the girls and the PARENTS
and teach this dance and cheers to the girls?

Oh dear......
I do not look as good as I feel.
Not even close!!!

I'm committed now. 
There is no backing out.
I will have to get up there in all my 
wiggly jiggly glory and teach
the dance and Cheers
to 24 girls while parents look on. 

Pray for me......

Week 24 Weigh In -

I only lost .6 this week.

But I am retaining water again.
On Monday I was down .8 for the week.

On Tuesday I went walking and running
and Wednesday morning I had GAINED 
2 pounds!! It was still there on Thursday.
(I know it isn't actual "weight" but water
because taking in the amount of calories
I am it is impossible to gain that much
weight. And I didn't cheat at all).
But it's still frustrating.

Friday I was back down to my weight
of the week before, and Saturday the scale 
stayed the same.  I was expecting it to 
be my first week EVER to NOT lose weight. 

But this morning it had dropped .6
LESS than a pound, but still a loss.

I found out last night I have been
selected as the HEAD COACH
for my daughters Peewee Cheerleading Squad!


and nervous......
Last year was my first year to Coach, 
and at 278lbs I was so self conscious 
about my body.   I always felt like I was 
being watched and judged. I thought parents
were probably wondering why I was selected as
one of the Coaches.
I couldn't even get on the floor and stretch 
with the girls.

It was my wake up call.

I Came SO Close To Cheating

Our oldest two kids are at their Dad's house
for the first part of the Summer.
And our youngest two have been at their
Grandmothers house for the past week.
So we have been Kid Free for the 
first time in 12 years!!
They come back next weekend.

Since this was our last Kid Free weekend
in who knows HOW long, I wanted to do something
Something we would NEVER normally do. 
Something FUN and EXCITING!
 I had told my husband I wanted to do something
Like get drunk
and smoke cigarettes. 

But being on a diet...
Alcohol was out of the question.
And I don't smoke.

Week 22 Weigh In -

I finally have Internet again!!

The tech came out late yesterday and 
got it fixed.  Something about it not 
being grounded....

Last week I lost 1.6. 
Bringing the Total to 62.2
Not a big loss, but it is still a loss!
On Monday I had dropped another pound,
and on Tuesday another...... so this week's
weigh in is looking promising!
Fingers crossed it doesn't go up again :)
