Extreme Makeover : Me Edition


Blah blah blah...that's how I feel about today's Extreme Makeover : Me Edition today. Well, just about my post and the fact that I don't have anything positive to say right now. I just came back form weigh-in where I gained 1.8 pounds...that's almost 2 pounds! What the hey? Ugh. I guess the positives are that I felt a little kick in my pants when I stepped on those scales today...like a little voice saying "see, you better get your butt in gear" and I left the meeting feeling somewhat motivated. So, I guess I better listen. I want next weeks 'tales from the scales' to be good. I wanted soooooo badly to have lost 25 pounds (at least) by vacation. Now I know that I can kiss that dream good-bye. Vacation is a week from tomorrow and now I am an extra 1.8 pounds away from that goal. boo. My WW leader said something today though that really stuck with me..."the road to success is always under construction." I think that is very fitting.


So, this week I will...


  • exercise

  • eat LOTS of fruits and veggies

  • drink lots of water

  • make smart choices

  • remember that one bad meal does not constitute giving up

I will not...



  • be frustrated

  • give up

  • sabotage myself

  • let stress get the best of me

  • lose out on quality sleep

  • make excuses

I hope everyone on the weight-loss/healthy living highway has a successful week ahead! For more EM:ME go see Amber (she lost 4 POUNDS this week!...go give her a virtual 'pat on the back'!)

I gained one million pounds this week. And I am WAY too scared to step on the scales to find out exactly how much.

You'll do better next week! You have a great attitude, keep it up, and the pounds will come off!:-)

Vivienne said...

pfft. Muscle weighs more than fat. A small gain like that is not necessarily a bad thing. Do your clothes fit better...?

You have a super attitude and will do just fine!

Dawn said...

I'm proud of your attitude. I know how discouraging it can be to get on the scale and see that you've gained.

I bet this week you will drop that 1.8 and more! =) It may have just been what you needed to get you motivated AGAIN.

I need to check out this EM:ME. I need something to blog about! LOL!
