Well, crap. 

It's like that Paula Abdul song. "I take 2 steps forward, I take 2 steps back!" I've been losing and gaining the same 5 pounds for almost two months now. And I just ate like a thousand Cadbury mini eggs in the last hour, so I'm not expecting miracle weight loss tomorrow. 

So, how do you get back on track when you're in a rut?

weight loss-- week 14

Starting 1-1-17 weight: 239.8
Last week's weight: 215.6
Cruise Weight 190.8
Ultimate goal weight: 175
TODAY'S WEIGHT: 212.8
Weight loss this week: 2.8
TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS: 27

OK, the last month was kind of a bust weight loss-wise, but I've been back to losing weight the last couple of weeks, so I'm feeling good! I don't think I'm going to be able to get to my cruise weight by the end of May, which was my original goal, so I'm going to have to rethink that. Still, it WILL happen! Only 22 pounds left! I'm over half way there! And less than 40 pounds left to get to my ultimate goal of 175. 

Of all the times I've tried to lose weight, I've never hit goal. NEVER! The closest I've ever come was 185, and that was 7 years ago. Will I be able to do it this time? I honestly don't know. I personally think it's amazing that I was able to get back on track after my 7 pound gain in March! Usually when I have a setback like that, it starts a downward spiral that I'm not able to escape from. So this month really was a win!

Dang, the week's almost over and  I haven't posted! 

This week I was back on track and lost another 2 pounds! After being stuck for the last three weeks, it's been good to see the scale move again. I had a bit of a set back yesterday (went to Wendy's for lunch and then ate some of the Easter candy!), but I'm still hoping for another 2 pound loss when I weigh in on Sunday. We'll see!
