Seriously I think being fat has warped my mind...I look at myself in the mirror and I can see a little bit of a change...my clothes are looser but not SO much looser than last week. I get anxious and worried before weigh- in and convince myself I'm going to fail. You're ALWAYS going to be fat...why don't you just forget this whole thing? I'm always the hungriest before weigh-in day (6 out of 7 days, for the most part, I'm comfortably full all the time, I eat my meals and my snacks and am satisfied) and I just want to give up.

Then I go to weigh in day, like I did today...and lost 4.2 pounds!? WHAT!?!?!?! How is that even possible!? Yeah I've been exercising a little bit more, but not enough to break the bank--maybe just enough to bust my buns? My eating as usual was good, even though I didn't make the GREATEST choice at lunch (although I didn't make the worst choice either!? Progress?)

My total weight loss is now 23.4. I had to readjust my labor day goal last week, which I am participating in on the Jenny Craig forums. My initial goal was to be down 15 by Labor Day...last week I adjusted it to 25...I don't know if I should just leave it alone or adjust it again. I think I'm going to leave it and have my new Ireland goal in mind. In November I am going away to Ireland for a week. This is a trip that I booked back in April and I'm going with a tour group!! My ultimate goal was to be down 40lbs by the time I went. I will not be bringing my JC food, this tour included all meals and I feel like I can make good choices AND I'll be out walking a lot. Think I can do it? I am sure as heck going to try!

My JCC was in a good mood when I saw her today...but this week I did not purchase ANY breakfasts and am doing MOMO for a lunch and a couple of dinners. I could see that she was not happy. I, however, am extremely happy. I'm saving money, losing weight, and I feel empowered...even if I am slightly delerious from having my period for five weeks now, UGH.

I have to see a couple patients today on my day off but that means extra money! So after I see them I have to run to the grocery store...which happens to be next to Target. And I may just slip into the DVD players section and see what there is. There's one on sale that got great reviews so...we'll see!

Good luck to my Wednesday weighers! Hope everyone has an awesome day!
