Extra Baggage

Finally the weekend is here. It's been one crazy week. I don't think I left school before 5:30 on any day except Friday. I had a killer headache so I left when I could. Most nights I came home and did more school work. I'm still not caught up. Fall is the worse! However it's all in the name of the game and the good news is it's keeping me from eating all the time because I'm too tired to eat. haha

Food and exercise wise I'm going well. I think the walking every day is paying off even though it's getting boring. I tried the treadmill last night because of the rain. I went for 20 minutes and said forget this. It just isn't the same as being in the heat and humidity. LOL 

I've been following my WW points. Yesterday I really was HUNGRY..first time in a long time. We ate at Olive Garden. I got a lunch portion and the lightest thing that wasn't chicken-lasagna. I had two breadsticks. Meant to only have one. Haven't had bread in so long that wasn't my whole grain fiber bread. LOL It was yummy. But I can't do that very often. Anyway....I ate about 10 cheetos and some peanut butter for dinner....and guess what I still lost a pound this AM...So I'm down 19 lbs. ish....I know tomorrow after I walk today and hopfully ride my bike I'll gain a couple...-water...but for now I'm going to relish in my glory. My pants are almost too baggy to wear....but I figure I can hold out a bit longer before I have to buy more. My skinny jeans fit. :) One size down only 4 more....:) 

This is a before picture. I can see the difference in my face.

Bye Bye Extra- Baggage


  1. Definitely can see the difference! Wow! And your skinny jeans fit! How awesome is that?

    Sorry to hear about your headaches. I woke up with them during the fall, along with allergy symptoms. No way to start or end the day. We have enough to do!

    Congrats on your success!

  2. Woo hoo! When you lose weight, it seems that it shows in your face and then works it's way down.

    Congrats! Great job girl!!

  3. Hi Melva! Thanks for stopping by my blog:) Congrats on the weight loss - it is an on going process with me too. That is terrific that you are a teacher - I currently substitute at my daughters school and I love it!
