Day 927 pounds a droppin' a weigh in post.

Today is Friday which I suppose is no news but it means that I am going to report the loss or gain that I had this week and its a crazy number I tell ya and a little amazing. True enough My start weight was at night before bed but that number did flash across the screen so its what I'm using, I am down 16 pounds from Sunday night and 10 pounds from Monday morning. I have a VERY strong feeling that I was extremely bloated from not eating right and indulging in one too many a slice of Tiramisu cake and or Carona as there were 3 birthday parties in the last two weeks that definitely contributed to the up. We are on the way back down to that 305 pound mark and I am going to push through it so that I can finally be done with these ever lasting "300's" that I have been stuck in for so long.

Staying hydrated and eating mostly whole foods this last week has once again fortified the fact that eating right and exercising regularly is the key. All week I have been going to the gym early in the morning compared to my "when the kids are in school" schedule and I was hating every second of it for the first couple of days but have adjusted nicely and a couple days ago I posted a blog titled Day 924, still NOT a morning person and I think I am changing my mind on that. This whole weight loss thang is a process and I never claimed to be perfect so of course there will be slips or spots in the program where things slow down to a crawl but as long as the general direction is that of nurturing good habits then I can't complain too much.

Yesterday I came in at 1795 calories and am still eating a vegetarian diet for the time being which is turning out to be a lot easier than I remember it being from when I did it back in the 90's. I am finding out that veggie burgers are freekin amazing if cooked right or in other words covered in sauteed onions and baby bella mushrooms with a touch of ketchup and a single slice of American cheese on a light bun and I can eat these often and not get tired of it. Drinking my tea every day has never been easier thanks to that iced tea maker that Wify got me and its getting used A LOT so we shall see how long before I need to buy a new one! Exercise has been daily and just under an hour of cardio per go all week and I am planning on a bike ride this weekend to show one of my daughters friends Dad around the lake on his bike so not hitting the gym today won't make me cry for too long, besides I got a 2 mile walk in last night carrying my 47 pound daughter for more than half of it so I made up for today a bit.

Over all its been a great week where my health is concerned and the plan is to keep the trend until I cross that elusive 300 pound line in the sand. I am coming to the conclusion that I really don't care what I weigh in the grand scheme as long as I am happy and healthy but with that said I really would like to see the other side of 267 pounds as soon as possible because its what I said I was going to do and being able to say that I dropped 50% of my total weight sounds cool on paper.

That's it, that's all I got and I bid you adieu until next time.
