This has been quite the week!
Stomach flu, long work hours, running, logging my food, drinking my water...
Other than one day, I have followed through with my 21 day challenge commitments of drinking 96oz water/day and tracking my food every day.
Permit me a minute to walk down memory lane...
Not so wonderful memory lane, but vital to remember memory lane.
I first hit the 200 pound mark when I was pregnant with my first son. Unfortunately, I started my pregnancy at my heaviest of 170 and topped out at 206. I immediately dropped back below after giving birth and experiencing the absolute BEST weigh-in in the world at my first doctor visit (I think I dropped 20 pounds!) and managed to stay there until the height of my next pregnancy when I hit 203 and again had that great drop following birth. This time I didn't get on the stick and get back to Weight Watchers, so I hung out at that post-baby drop and stayed in the 180's until severe post-partum depression hit and I lost 20 pounds in three weeks because I couldn't food lost its taste and my family had to force me to eat. Great to drop some weight BUT not the best way to do it. Then came the Paxil and 40 freaking pounds... For the first time in my life, I couldn't control the urge to eat chocolate at all times, including the checkout line... I became THAT person who they created the candy stands for in the first place! And since the beginning of 2007 I have remained above the 200 mark... most of that time just barely above, but above nevertheless.
I am moving on, moving forward and reclaiming ME!
Change from last week
Goodbye 200's, I am NEVER saying hello again!
