About Me

My photo
I am a small town girl living the big city life with my superhero hubby and our superhero- in-training son! I love Jesus and junior mints and have a secret addiction to Neil Diamond and Cat Steven's music. I love a good theme party, the smell of pretty stationary, a good book and a glass of ice tea with an orange slice in it. I am fairly certain that given a cape and a nice tiara, I could save the world.

Ugh, really?

I'd be lying to you if I said I'm happy this morning.  I know, I know, 5 pounds in two weeks is something to be proud of but losing only .2 pounds this past week just has me flat out discouraged. I think I was hoping for Biggest Loser type weight loss this morning where I step on the scale and 12 pounds has disappeared but as my hubby says "you'd have to exercise like 6  hours a day to get those results".  I know I should be happy that it's a loss and not a gain but I'm not.  I have a big pout on my face and tears in my eyes because if I am fighting this hard and making major dietary changes and all I get as a result is .2 pounds it's going to be a very long hard year for me.
Not giving up, just a little sad in my heart this morning.


  1. some weeks will be better than others. but the main thing is that you lost weight and you are creating a healthier lifestyle for you, and W in the long run. you are doing great!!

  2. Just remember too that water weight plays a factor. I remember one morning I woke up and was 3 lbs heavier than I was the day before. Don't feel discouraged!

  3. thanks girls! All the encouraging words really do keep me going at moments like this :)

  4. Every little bit counts! at least you didn't gain. Keep with it and don't let this be the reason your cheat. That is what I always do and it just defeats the whole journey. Big hugs to you today.
