Almost 3 years

On Tuesday it will be 3 years since I started this diet pact.  I have managed to keep off 50+ pounds in 3 years. I have exercised more in the last 3 years than the previous 10 (most likely, because I didn't keep track).

This week I hit an all time low (for this month) at 196, so I was one pound away from my 5 pound goal for the 25th of March.  This morning I'm back up to 197.2 so the scale sucks.... and I looked back and since the 3rd of this month I've lost....a half a pound.  Meh.  Or maybe I should look at it as; I haven't gained anything! even through Valentine's Day!

I have 5 weeks left until the 25th of March and I want to be well below the 195 range so there will be no 5 am surprises!

My goals this week are to exercise 5 times (which I did last week) and log my food for at least 5 days and be honest about what I eat.  There is no skipping hard work and watching what you eat.... nope none. sigh.

I am excited that it has been almost 3 years and I'm excited that I've kept off 50+ pounds.  I am looking forward to this week exercise and diet because I know I can do it.

Now, I'm off to buy cupcakes for my hubby's birthday.  My personal goal for that is to only eat half of one. Yes, it can be done.  I've done it before. :)

This Last Week

I made my goal of 4X of exercising and I lost .9 pounds.  However, this morning (Thursday) I was up 1.1....bleck.

This week I intend to lose ? and exercise 5 times this week.  I've already done it twice so I've got three more times to go.

I want to lose be a pound lower than I was at the end of this last week but I fell face first into some chocolate on Valentine's day.... and with that 1.1 up I will just do what I can to be reasonable the rest of the week.

OH! and for LENT I have given up snacking after I put the boys to bed.  I use that time to totally nosh out on food, not sure why.  I don't need it but I do it, so that is what this non-catholic is doing to give up a crutch and find something else to lean on.

Exercised...weight meh

I got in 4X of exercising, my eating...on about Friday I took a dive into Carb Land...and Pulled myself out very very slowly.  I have done "well" today.  I haven't stepped on the scale.  :(  yes there is fear involved.  Tomorrow is soon enough to get onto that scale.  Maybe I'll post tomorrow the results.

My new goal is to exercise 5X which means I will take off Monday and Friday and exercise the rest of the days.  Wish me luck :) I did it before I can do it again.

I made my goal....as long as I exercise today

I did manage to lose a pound ... or two.  I got so disgusted with myself I stopped putting my numbers into My Fitnes Pal so I'm not really sure.  I'll have to check my last blog, but I'm not sure I actually posted an actual number.  I can't tell, except that I know I was at 196 on January 20th.  Well, I am at 197.6 so bummer.  I know I was back up to 199 at some point in between Jan 20 and today.  I need to go back to tracking the damnable number on my calendar or in My Fitness Pal.  An unforeseen consequence of this bet and being on MFP (My Fitness Pal) with my sister and my father is that I only want to put my losses in the tracker, not the gains.

But I have exercised twice this week and if...woops...WHEN I exercise this week I'll have made my goal of 3X this week.

Next week's goals.  Lose a pound exercise at least 3X.  More if possible, but at a minimum it will be 3.
