Wednesday Weigh In

Original Weight: 320
Last Week's Weight: 220 (ugh)
Lowest Weight: 207
Today's Weight: 216

Total down: 104 (sort of yay)
Down from last week: 4 (yay)
Up from lowest: 9 (not so yay)

I'm slowly getting back to the basics. Choosing high protein items, trying not to snack/graze between meals. Each day I'm doing better at this. Not completely on target, but getting closer than I was.

AND today is day 4 sans sugar.

AND my family is still intact.

On Monday I went snowmobiling with the family. It's the first time I've gone since I've lost weight and it was a much different than before --

 I wasn't terrified of getting all the way up there only to find out they didn't have a suit big enough for me.

I wasn't terrified that they had a weight limit and I would get up there only to find out I couldn't ride.

I was sure that my child would fit behind me on the snowmobile.

It was good to feel these things (none of these things ever happened, I was just afraid it would have happened).

Here are some pictures -- let's just say, no one looks good in these snow suits.

suiting up --

 joy (sarcasm) -- and in case you didn't know what size suit I was in, it's right there, x-tra large, short

 It was a beautiful day in Colorado on Monday, sunny and crisp
 Jake tried out driving in the meadow a bit
 Post mobiling popcorn
Jake, sigh, on his phone....well at least we got him engaged and laughing when we went out to eat afterwards.

Okay, done playing on my blog and reading yours for a bit, I have to get down to it and write a paper. Tell me again why I thought going back to school was a good idea? And if I EVER decide to get my PhD, please feel free to do an intervention.


  1. Even though I grew up in Alaska, I think I've only been on a snowmachine (which is what Alaskans call them, for some arcane reason) maybe once in my entire life. It looks super-fun! I wonder where you were? In the late 90s/early 00s, we used to go up to Grand Lake at Christmastime most years, and that was a big snowmobiling mecca.

    1. we were in grand lake :D love it up there!

  2. I'll add a YAH, YAH. Your numbers are great. And a big plus is getting out in the winter. Another YAH YAH.

  3. I should add, after reading your about, I had WLS 4 years ago--Lapband. Best decision I have ever made. Good luck.

  4. Looks like a fun day. I love a nice crisp snow. Congratulations on your loss this week!

  5. :)I like all the pics. Fun day! YAY for loss of 4 pounds!

  6. 4 days without sugar. OMG girl - I would give you a trohpy if I had one. :) thats great work.

  7. Nice job. I don't know how you went so long without sugar. Keep up the good work.
