Hanging in there

I hate to admit but I haven’t been watching what I eat like I should. I’m still doing pretty good but I know I could do better.  Just to give myself a kick in the butt I did an extra 10 min on my exercise ball and 10 min on the elliptical. 

I was also checking out Linda’s Low Carb site to get some recipe ideas and make sure I’m eating right.  I haven’t completely gotten off track but if I want to lose my remaning 10 #s then I need to buckle down and make sure I’m eating right and exericising.

On the plus side I make sure I walk 2.5 miles each day, so that’s a big motivator.  I definetly need to keep up with this because walking is so good for you and it makes me feel great!!!!

Another great motivator is that I have to dress up for work tomorrow and I’m wearing a skirt that I wore back in October and it was bit tight on me.  Well now it’s loose!  I think this may be the last time I can actually wear it without fear of it falling down.  I need to keep reminding myself that if I don’t keep up with this that this sz 16 skirt will be my permanent size and I really want to go to the next level and get down to a size 14.  In my adult like a size 14 has always been my smallest so this is always a “sentimental” number for me.   Of course, 😉 I’d like to get under that number to.  Ahh…so many goals, but I know I can meet them all!!!!!

Uh oh my scale broke!

I have no idea what’s wrong with it.  I switched out the battery and even wiped it down with a soft cloth to clean it up a bit and it still wont’ come on.  Not too long ago it wasn’t working right so I think it’s done for.  Bummer for me because I had just gotten under 200 lbs and am so anxious to track my ongoing process.  I guess this will keep me from weighing myself too often.  I’m hoping in the next week or so go get a new one.  As much as not obsessing over the scale is a “good” thing not being able to track my progress and keep myself on track is a “bad” thing. 

In other news I bought a size 16 pants not too long ago and I swear they are baggy on me already.  They are baggy through the legs and while not super loose through the waist I can definetly tell that they are a bit looser than when I first bought them.  That makes me very happy!!!

I also can’t wait becasuse I finally earned enough points through my Mypoints account to get a $50 Giftcard and I decided to go with Lane Bryant to get some new clothes!  They have some clearance items on the website that I have in my shopping cart just waiting for the Giftcard to get here.  Hopefully it doesn’t take much longer because I cannot wait to get some new clothes.  Too bad Lane Bryant store issn’t closer to me so I could try some clothes on.  Who knows though I might make the trip anyway to get some new clothes.
