August 12th Weigh In

This is the first weigh in since I've been back on track, counting calories, and basically being serious about weight loss again. I have felt really good this past week and cannot wait to continue on this journey.

I have had a very very busy week...ending off with a double shift at work. After being at work for 15 hours, my feet, hips, and back were crazy sore. Definitely proved to me, yet again, that I have a long way to go. Being on my feet for that long was so hard on my body. I think it would be hard on anybody's body but I could barely get in the car at the end of it! When I got home, I managed to stay awake long enough to watch 1 show with Chris, but I was asleep before my head even hit the pillow! I never sleep in my lounge clothes (sweats and a long sleeved shirt usually, I always change into shorts and a tank top because sleeping with Chris is like sleeping with a furnace!), but I fell asleep as I was and didn't wake up until morning.

Yesterday, we ended up taking the kiddo to not one, but two parks. At the first one she played on the swings for a bit then we took a little walk to the viewpoint there. I've lived in this town for over 2 years and have visited it on a regular basis for most of my life, but I'd never seen it from this vantage point. It was beautiful! It was a hot day, but absolutely gorgeous!

How lucky am I to live here?

After this we were all pretty hot so after a quick pit stop at the candy store, we went to a different park that had a spray park that the kid could play in and a lot of shade that Chris and I could hide in. I thought for sure the kid would want to play in the water more, but she ended up wanting to play on the playground with a bunch of kids that were there. She had a blast and we spend the entire afternoon outside. Next time, I definitely need to remember my camera so I can get better quality pictures than what my cellphone takes.

Anyways, I guess I should report my weigh in rather than keeping you in suspense (or was that my plan all along?!). I weighed in yesterday at 287.3 which is a 4.5lb loss this week! 4.5 lbs in a week...I haven't done that in so very very long. I guess you all were on to something with this calorie counting business!

    Sorry - I am just catching up on blogs! Whoohoo for your loss. I am glad you are having success with the calorie counting, even though I know it can be a pain. Are you using an online app? It definitely makes it more convenient and easier to track everything.
    Hope you have a great week - keep it up!
