Wednesday Weigh-In

I blog about my weight and what happens? I gain two pounds!! OK, so it might have been the decadent Valentine's Dinner at my mother in laws Saturday night. Between her cooking and Amie's (my SIL), it's pure indulgence.

On Sunday night, Heroes for Children hosted a beautiful Valentine's Dinner for HFC families. We had free on-site childcare for the kids and dinner for two for the parents. Same as last year, we had a mother come alone. I'm not about to let a mom sit there by herself at a table for two! So, I asked to join her and we had a wonderful dinner together. A wonderful, non South Beach friendly dinner.

So, here I am now up two pounds. I know I'll shed these pounds. It's just a reminder of how easy it is for those pounds to creep right back up. Just a reminder that I am in this for the long haul, not just to lose weight and think I'm done.

It's a lifestyle change. Those are the toughest, aren't they?

I have read and followed you since early 2004. I have prayed and rejoiced and never written. But I am writing now saying you are so inspirational - everything about your life. You are totally here for a purpose. Thanks - I am on the weight loss journey too. Never been obese, just always had 15 - 30lbs to lose. I am doing this the lifestyle way. And so I feel your pain and your pride. You look amazing!

Yes those are the toughest changes, aren't they??? I'm in the midst of changing my diet and adding more exercise and it's sooo HARD...harder than I ever imagined. But we can do this!

I too have read you since a long time ago :) Thank you for being so honest about your struggles because it makes me see that this can be done. I have about 30 lbs to lose now (I've lost 11) but this whole lifestyle thing is tough isn't it??? Thank you for continuing to be an inspiration!
