Time Flies When You're Losing Weight

I'm not really sure where last week went, I obviously dropped the ball on the weight loss post, in fact I'm not even sure I weighed last week at all, which seems odd since I'm kind of a scale-a -holic.

I usually weigh several times a week and always before I get in the shower in the morning. Not sure why, maybe because I'm subconsciously obsessed with weight or maybe it's habit since the scale sits right outside the shower door... either way, if I weighed last week I have no recollection, and that made me a little terrified to step on the scale this morning.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was down a pound from week 4. I know I'm not pulling great numbers, but the way I look at, it's a loss. It's closer to my goal and quite honestly I don't deserve it.

I haven't worked out regularly, and I eat like shit. The only saving grace now is I don't really eat a lot, sometimes I don't eat at all. Not on purpose, I just get busy, I never thought I would be that person who said, I'm too busy to eat. It's not like I don't think about it, or start to get something for myself, but it seems that I get distracted and the next thing I know it's 2:00 in the afternoon and all I've had is a giant coke. It's not so bad really, my body seems to be adjusting to the starvation quite nicely, and I rather like drinking my calories and not having to give up my non-diet soda in order to lose weight.

This week, I'm trying to get to the gym or work out 3 times... The kids are all sickly so I may have to settle for running the neighborhood, but I'll get something in. I'm pushing for 140 this week. That would be so nice right before Christmas week... Come on 140!!!

Week 6
Starting Weight - 142.5

A loss is a loss.

EAT, though!! Your body being in starvation mode isn't good.

I got on the scale yesterday and damn near lost my mind. I gained 5 pounds in a month. WTH?!

Oh. Wait. Perhaps it has something to do with the fetus living in my uterus.

You're doing good. :)
