I've only been losing about 2 pounds a month. I'm not happy about it, but at least I'm not gaining.
My boss has taken a 6 week medical leave to have surgery. She put me in charge, so I get her hours, her pay, her schedule. Her shifts start a 5:45am, and I'm used to coming in at noon. Needless to say,my sleep and food have both been thrown off. When I'm tired I mindlessly eat. It's been a real struggle. I think I'm finally building a routine that won't derail my progress. I'll update again when I hit the 200 pound mark.

I've been slipping back into old habits recently. I had to kick myself in the butt to keep it in check. I have been basically eating whatever I want for the past 2 weeks. I'd fluctuate between 5 pounds in either direction, not caring one bit about it. My drive was completely lost. I managed to keep myself in check yesterday, and today is going well so far.
Planning my food a day ahead of time has worked wonders. I need to remember that when I feel I'm slipping.
I'm not going to make my Christmas goal of 200 pounds, but I feel I might make it to 210. I'm going to try as hard as I can.

I have officially lost 60 pounds since I started using SparkPeople to lose weight. I never thought that I would get here, but here I am. Customers at work and people that I rarely see are starting to mention it now.
The funny thing is that I don't really see any difference. I notice when clothes get bigger, but I don't see a difference in the mirror. Oh well. I'm still pleased with my progress.
I wanted to be 215 by Halloween, but I'll probably make it to 219 at best. That's okay. Losing something is better than gaining.

Yesterday I reached 40 percent lost towards my goal. I'm pretty happy about it. My goal for the month is to reach 215 by Halloween. If I get below that, I may even eat a piece of candy or two. Haha.
My boyfriend's brother got arrested last week, and it's caused their mother to be a frantic, hysterical, annoying mess. She expects everyone to help take care of her son's business while he's in jail. My opinion? He screwed up, let him figure everything out. He's been screwing up for the past two years and it finally landed him where he needs to be. At least 3 family members have lost thousands of dollars trying to keep this guy on track. I'm not lifting a finger.
Anyway, all of that drama along with it being that time of the month, has made me have to fight some serious cravings. Here's hoping I stay on track.

Not much to report. Work. Weight loss. Exercise. Sleep. That's been my routine for the last three weeks basically.
I did screw up on Monday and eat a half pound burger with tater tots. It was delicious and I rarely go out to eat with my fiance, so I'm not upset about it. I managed to get the gain off with one day of clean eating, so that's great.
My goal to be 223 by the end of this month seems possible, but I have a feeling I'll only make it to 225. I'm going to try my best. A loss is a loss, no matter how great or small.
Here's hoping that everyone is having a fantastic week. Halloween is rapidly approaching!
