Weigh Loss August

So today is really September 2. I am so excited to be writing this because by the time you read it my hero will be home and the surprise will have happened. I wanted to update you on my August weight. T his has been a tough month. It seems like this weight is sticking around longer. The last time I wrote was August 5 and I weighed 184. Today is September 2nd and I weigh 175.8. That is 9 pounds in a month. I mean that is not bad when I think about it by the month. It is really hard when you have a week with no weight loss. I am determined to get better about exercise. Friday night I had friends over and I ate more in one meal than I have in months. Then Saturday morning after a trip to the zoo I went to Zaxby’s. I came home and did the elliptical for 60 minutes. It was not bad at all. After 20 minutes I thought okay I will do 30 and then I just kept going on and on by 5 minutes. Normally I do not exercise on Sundays but I decided to today. I only did 30 minutes. I had not lost weight all week but woke up this morning and had lost a pound. I constantly have to remind myself it is the end game and not the day to day. It is funny but this is the first month I have not had my daughter take pictures. That is because I bought new clothes and had my son take pictures. I bought a pair of pants and four shirts. I am trying to decide what to wear when my hero comes home. Originally I thought I would wear my long black skirt but really I think the blue jeans show my weight loss. I bought a pair of size 11/12 dress blue jeans that are nice and I like them. They are probably what I will wear. I also have a pair of size 10, yes you heard that right a pair of size TEN jeans and I might wear those. They are not as fancy but show the weight loss. I am in a weird spot. I am wearing makeup and loving my jeans and really enjoying tank tops. All things that are not normally me. I mean I do not want to wear the tank tops in public unless I am walking the track. It does worry me. I want to make sure that I am not losing who I am while losing weight. I hope that makes sense.

Pam I think you look great and don't get disgusted with yourself and start eating. Just remember that your Dad;s side of the family is big boned, that's what I keep telling myself. I know when I was your age I was continually on a diet and even now I fight every day with my weight. Keep going it will come off and I know your husband is happy with the way you look. I have been diagnosed with Diabetes and Mom had it and my brother Joe has it. If you get a chance and go for a check-up, please have them check your sugar level, just as a precaution. It doesn't hurt to be cautious. Again you look great keep up the good work. Tell your family I said hay and hope all is well.
