Day 143--Early weigh day, 25 weird questions and much rambling like I always do

So I had to weigh today. I had to. Last weekend on my women's retreat I decided to just not freak out about the food I was eating and give myself extra calories. There was no way I was going to be able to figure out some of that stuff, I mean I could guess but still. And I wanted to taste all those different cheeses at the very famous Osceola Cheese Store place and not worry about the calories, I mean seriously, I have never even been to a place like that before. And then I went to Sonic on Wednesday and had a foot long chili dog and fries. I was just so hungry for one if you can believe that! I didn't think I could wait a whole week to see what damage, if any, I did to my weight. So I weighed today and guess what. I lost 2 pounds since last Thursday. And it's not like I 'cheated' because I still watched my portion sizes and so I guess that's the secret isn't it? I AM SO CLOSE TO THE 200'S I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!! Agony to weigh 300 pounds exactly. Next week I'll be under it I know I know I can feel it.
It rained for 24 hours straight here. And now all the trees are changing and it is beautiful. I'm so looking forward to my walk today. Tonight my daughter has 3 friends spending the night because tomorrow they AND ME have to be at the school by 5:30 in the MORNING to get on the bus and head to a big marching band competition thingy. I am a chaperone. I am going to be one tired chaperone. And can you imagine 4 girls and me trying to get ready and out the door by 5:30 in the MORNING? It's gonna be horrible.
THEN tomorrow night my son is celebrating his 14th birthday (on Tuesday) with some boys to sleep over. Sigh. So I have to have my dinner for tomorrow all planned out because I know sure as shootin I will not feel like doing a whole lot when I get home. And I have to have my dinner for tonight ready because I have been cleaning this house from ceiling to cellar for all these people who are coming over AND their mothers who will be coming into my home and looking at everything.
Okay so I've been getting lovely awards from other people and there are rules people. Yes, there are rules for giving and receiving blogger awards. And I have broken them all.

Life is good. I really really like the way I feel. And how I look. OH I forgot, I tried on absolutely every single item of clothing I have, stuff that was buried in my closet, items my sister gave me, everything. And it's like I have a whole new wardrobe!!! You should just SEE my closet. Normally there is nothing hanging on the hangars on my side of the closet. Nothing. You see, when you are extremely heavy and don't go anywhere and all your clothes are horribly stained and stretched out whats the point of having a clean closet? It's another one of those spots that go to pot because noone is taking care of it. I have no room for my shoes, stuff is all over, all the shelves are full of junk it's crazy. So now my closet looks lovely and I'm excited!
So yes life is good. I love the energy I have. I love the foods I eat. I made one cookie yesterday. One. Like a weirdo. But I knew if I made more I would eat them! I never buy cookie dough, ever, but the tollhouse ones were on sale, the chocolate lovers and the peanut butter lovers ones that are premade, you know? My son is home today and he wants some and I said how many and he said I don't know and I said you better give me a number that you know for sure you are going to eat because no way do I want extra cookies lying around they are THAT GOOD. So he said 3. THEN he said no 2. So. Two it is!
Be good folks.


  1. I'm with you on the new wardrobe. I've been digging deeper in the closet than I have in decades. I think I've uncovered a leisure suit that fits!

    Keep up the fantastic work, and have a great weekend!

  2. How exciting!! I'm so happy for you.

  3. Thats Wonderful, you are amazing Zaa, a real inspiration.
    Have a Great Weekend



  4. oooohhhhhhhh! You are so close. T----his close!! You will do it (like tomorrow). I am so excited for you- it feels so good to see 2__!

    You are doing so well with your program, and I hope you know that.

  5. I am so excited for you to hit the 200's. Congratulations on all you have accomplished.

    I 100% relate to the closet situation. I used to wear my dresses that I had spilled bleach on shopping. John would say, "Diane, that looks bad honey." I'd shrug and say, "No one looks at me."

    Once I lost weight, the clothes took a definite turn for the better!

    Stay strong!!!

  6. Did you say you made 1 cookie?!!! Just tell me it was one of the plate sized ones.

    speaking of numbers breaking down out of the three hundreds is going to be huge (or less huge?) for me. I've still got another dozenish pounds but I see that 2 something getting pretty close as I slide those blocks.

    At Foolsfitness we fill our sneakers up with helium before weigh ins. - Alan

  7. How wonderful! Keep up the good work. Can't wait for the 2's.

  8. Hi - I just found your blog and it's great. Looks like your on the brink of a new century!!
    Woohoo - since it's October 12 today, you are probably already in that new territory! Great job. I'm going to browse through your archives, but it looks like you're doing great. I'd love for you to visit my blog if you get a chance, Nice to meet ya! Leslie

  9. Hey Zaa!!! Congrats on that 2 lb loss...can't wait to hear about the next weigh-in...what a day that will be!!! And I myself am a weirdo. Making one cookie sounds exactly like something I would do, lol. And I love how you make your son give you an exact number. Way to take control girlfriend!!! :)
