Weigh In Day

I know I have been MIA lately. I miss you guys! I haven’t had the time to sit down and blog or read too many blogs lately. But I’m hoping that everything will slow down now! Just minutes ago, I finished a 10 page paper I’ve been stressing over and I think that’s the last big thing I have to worry about until Finals week! :)

Last week was stressful for me. Monday I found out that instead of having 2 semesters left, I will have at least 4. That was a HUGE disappointment to me. I have been in college since 2004- no I am not a doctor. lol I am just trying to get my BA! I can only afford to take two classes at a time, so this is just the way it is for me. But I came home and ate that day… I let stress get the best of me.

So what I’m saying is, I gained 3.6 lbs this week. I am at 238.2, just .2 above that 50 lb goal I met last week. Let me tell you, I am never going to see 238 again. I am back on track today!

I can identify where the downward spiral began, which is just insane. I had 2 girl scout cookies on Thursday night. Within points and completely planned, but it threw me off. I have been craving sugar and junk since then. I seriously have a problem with sugar.

So that’s where I’m at. I’m tired of coming on here to tell you all that I have flip flopped once a gain. I go from being on track to falling off the wagon. Well guess what, I’ve jumped back on that wagon again! 2 steps forward, 1 step back- I’ll get there eventually and that’s all that matters!

  6. In all things, slow & steady win the race - that's with college and weight loss. 2 semester or 4, when it's all done you'll have something no one can take away from you!

  7. Impressed at how dedicated you are to getting your BA...it will be worth it in the end.

    Yes, do agree that 3.6lbs will be off in no time.
    I'm trying to get about 4lbs off that I gained...
