I went to a party at my old roomates place last night. This picture was taken as a joke and I hardly recognize myself. That is all. Posted by Picasa

I peeked at the scale tonight and I really liked what I saw. Hopefully I will be able to keep up this new found motivation.

I have a training meeting tomorrow and this will be the major test. There is always so much food at these things. Bad food. Lots and lots of it. If I can make it though I will be awesome. I know my breakfast choices will be limited, but I think I am going to bring an apple or some cheerios just in case. Lunch will be at the caf, but I WILL get a salad from the salad bar.

I have started running again. Typically just a little over a mile a day. This morning I got the worst pain in my side EVER. It hurt so bad that I had to stop running and start walking. I think I need to drink more water when I am exercising

I definitely was not expecting to gain another pound this week. Well I did. I am up to 210 now. Hopefully I will be able to stick with it. I can't expect miracles after really sticking with my points for only 3 days.

I went shopping today after work. I bought 4 sweaters. I tried on 3 pairs of jeans and I hate pants. I have yet to find jeans that fir my body right and are long enough. I have huge thighs and it is so hard to find jeans that don't make me look like I even bigger thunder thighs then I already do.

Here is to an on plan Wednesday.

I never reported my weight from Tuesday probably because I gained 3 pounds to bring me back up to 209. Knowing that I could possibly be seeing another gain I am back on plan. Yesterday was an on point day, but know gym. I am just not event going to talk about Friday. Today has been excellent and I event made it to the gym. I did weights for about 30 minutes and then the treadmill for 35 minutes. 20 of which I ran at or above 6.3 MPH. I really wanted to go for 30 minutes, but I haven't run in a long time and there was no way that was going to happen. I just ate a yummy greek salad from panera.

I was thinking today about what my mind set was when I started this whole thing almost two years ago. I was definitly not expecting much. I think I wanted to try to lose 15 pounds by the time I would be seeing John Mayer in Mid March. I end up losing over 30 pounds. It seemed so easy back then. I wasn't tempted to cheat. Even if I did treat myself I would still lose. Well most of the time. I just checked my spreadsheet and in 4 months I only had 3 gains. I really need to get back to that mindset. I know I can do this. I want it soooo bad.
