Ive been going back to my weekly weigh ins instead of Wednesday I'm going on Thursdays. I started the Thursday before last. When i weighed in Thursday i lost 10lbs that first week. So I'm at a total of 94.2 lbs gone. This is beyond exciting for me. I'm so close to that 100# mark. So I'm at 227.2 lbs right now.
Just looking at old pictures and new ones, my face has changed a LOT. I mean the rest of me has too but to see the changes in my face is awesome
I am proud to say..I bought a new bathing suit today...and it was a size 20! I've now gone from a 28 (if there really is such size as 28) to a 20...that is awesome. I tried on some shorts in a 20 as well and those fit too. I can't wait to be in smaller sizes but I am happy with the progress I have made this far. Going down 4 sizes in under 3 months is awesome to me.
I am disappointed in myself, I haven't lost as much weight as I would have liked to but I guess I should be happy I lost anything. The past two weeks I have lost 3.2lbs I am now at 279 lbs.
Today was pretty good though. I took the boys to the zoo (it's about 1.5 hrs from us) Oh my goodness was it nice to walk around without sweating insanely and struggling to breathe. I know part of that is because I stopped smoking...but the other part is definitely the 42.4lbs I've lost! Anyway the kids loved it (which I knew they would..since they always do) We left the house at 8am got there at 9:30. I packed lunches to have with us and a snack. We stayed until 1:30ish. I had to make sure we got back since I had an appointment at 4. Went to the appointment and after that we went swimming =) First time this year. My boys were so excited. All of us LOVE going swimming and could probably spend all day every day at the pool. They are worn out and I am as well.
Hopefully things will start getting back to being good. I'd like to start losing more weight again and I'd like to have positive things to blog about.
Snack at 3:40
2 Tbsp Cashews- 85 calories
Okay I have definitely been drinking more water today. My bladder is feeling the effects of it (uggh)
1 C (measured before cooked) mushrooms cooked in 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1.5 C salad with 2 Tbsp FF Italian
240 calories for this meal
Chocolate Shake- 160 calories
Honey Caramel bar- 200 calories
That makes 1,035 calories for the day.
Had my weigh in..I'm a bit disappointed. I lost 3 lbs this week. It's better than nothing though I guess..
I'm not sure if it's because I've added some exercise (besides just walking) in and I'm possibly gaining some muscle. Maybe it's the lack of water I've been drinking? I'm not really sure.
3/27/13- 321.4 lbs (start weight)

Update on today!
It was a GREAT day. The boys were very good. Them being good was VERY rare until recently (and I know it's my fault. When you're a complete fatass that doesn't want to get up/can hardly move without having difficulty breathing it makes it really hard to be a good mother.) Which is why I am making sure I change my whole way of life but that's another story for another day.
We walked a few trails found 3 caches today. We searched for one that we couldn't find (apparently it's been reported as missing) I don't mind going into the woods but I don't care for going into the woods and getting cut up by thorns! Luckily the kids didn't get their legs cut up like I did.
They had soooo much fun. The oldest pretended to be Shaggy (from scooby doo). He was out trying to solve mysteries of the hidden treasure. The oldest pretended to be Jake (from Jake and the neverland pirates). He was trying to find the treasure! They both grabbed a few things from the caches and we put a few things back in them. The oldest was beyond excited to get a lego guy out of one. =) The youngest for whatever reason wanted a bracelet.
They asked me if we could make bracelets when we got home so we can switch out things in the caches another day. So that's what we did..Made bracelets, keychains, and necklaces until it was time for bed. I guess we'll be making them tomorrow too since they cried when I told them to put the stuff up that it was bedtime.
