This has been such a rough week. Saturday was my uncle Pete's funeral, very sad :-( I decided that was my day that I would eat whatever I wanted to. I was really upset and needed to just indulge. I had over 2000 calories that day.I logged every single thing I ate onto myfitnesspal. I ate meatballs, cookies and cream ice cream,wine, beer, fresh cream donuts, and much more. On Sunday I walked almost 3 miles, and got right back on track. I stuck to my food plan everyday. However, exercising became a challenge. I ran out of time every night, It was so frustrating. Tuesday we had a big birthday party for a few people at work, and there was tons of fantastic food. I still enjoyed the party but ate my own food. I did add some delicious hummus to my salad, but other than that I didn't eat a thing. I got weighed on Thursday this week because I'm impatient, and discovered I lost 2.8 pounds this week. I was so excited!! I have lost a total of 14.8 pounds all together. This is such a huge accomplishment for me. I usually give up by now. I'm so glad I didn't. I have so many people helping me stay motivated , I refuse to give up this time.
A very sweet person that I know is very heavy. She is such a nice person and she has small children. I asked her where she has been because I haven't heard from her, and she said she was in the hospital, due to her being extremely over weight. She took a look at me and complimented me on my weight loss. She said to me that it was inspiring to her, and not much works for her, and shes glad I found something that worked for me. I gave her all the information about what worked for me, and shes going to give it a try. I told her I was still on a mission to lose more weight, and I would help her in any way I can. everyone has to find out which lifestyle works best for them.
I'm hoping to have a less stressful week, and exercise more. Wish me luck :-)

I should be thankful that I lost 12 pounds altogether but really who loses only 2oz for the week??? I guess I should be happy that I lost at least something. I didn't get to exercise much this week, I have been extremely busy, and there has been massive amounts of food around me. My uncle passed away last week, and what my family always does best is eat . On Sunday I drank beer, wine, and ate brownies, homemade spaghetti, meatballs, and so much more. I actually logged all of my "bad" food into mytfitnesspal. It helped me stay focused. I got right back on track the next day. Exercise is the key for me but I don't always have the time to do it. Walking , playing tennis, and now I'm getting into the soccer season with the boys. I think these exercises will help me reach my goal.They will also alleviate some high stress levels in dealing with stupid people!
