I can't believe I haven't posted all week! It's been a little crazy, and the craziness will continue into next week, and then I get to relax, thank goodness! I've been tracking everything I eat, and am doing fairly well at it. I weighed in this morning at 275.6 and all I can say is thank goodness I'm staying in the same area-ish. Three days ago I was at 278, so this is a loss, but I still can’t seem to break through the 270’s. I’ve seen the 260’s before on my scale, so I know what it looks like, but it has not been anything permanent so far. I’m still keeping it up though. Something is bound to change, let’s just hope it’ll be for the better.

I don’t have much else to write about so I thought I’d answer some questions.

43. What was your favorite vacation? Our honeymoon. We drove from Portland south to San Francisco, East to Lake Tahoe and Reno, North to Idaho and back into Oregon. We camped in lake Tahoe where I’d heard all about the bears, so I slept with my pocket knife (like that’d help, LOL) and the car alarm button. I figured that would probably scare anything away. LMAO

  1. Great quiz! We have a lot in common! 2, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 20, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 37, 40, 41, 42, 45 and 50 I think I would have answered the same. :-)

  2. Laura- I struggled for a year- no seriously a whole YEAR to lose ten pounds. To get out of the 220s. I even got back up to 230. It wasn't that I was doing it wrong it was that I wasn't aware of what was right. Maybe you need to look at your portions a little more carefully. I invested in a kitchen scale and I can see that what I thought was a 3 oz portion of chicken was actually 5 oz. And it does add up. Just keep strong and keep working to figure out what is going on with you. For me, it was portions.
    For you it might be too much salt or not enough calories (heh, go figure!) but really watch for a while and change one thing at a time and you will see the results you want.

  3. Coffee is an acquired taste for sure!
    Good to get to know a fellow blogger.
