Well I have another very busy, very hectic day. Still at work. Playing a waiting game with the irrigation. I got on the scale this morning. After I tried on a pair of pants that fit fine 2 weeks ago. Very snug. Have gotten back up to the danger number on the scale. Everyone has that number. The stop crapping around number. Lose it, or else number. I am confidant that it will come off. It's getting harder to loose it as fast as I did last year though. Granted, I am not putting my all into it this summer like I did last summer. So I have gone to the food store. Lots of fruits and veggies. Planned some meals. Filling up H20 jugs. Ready for my attack.

I have pooped around in this general scale area for about 6 months now. I planned on taking a break from weight loss. I wanted to maintain for a while. Give my head a chance to catch up with my body. My son is getting married in March. I want to loose 25 lbs by then. It is doable. I am starting to feel that I can do more. That I am ready to more. Now get on it Dana!

I got great news yesterday. Both my sisters and a niece and a nephew will be here the 1st of August. One sister is coming all the way from Tokyo. Her entire family is coming for a couple of weeks. We have decided to have my daughter's baby shower while both "Aunties" are here. For those of you who don't know, I get "little kid" excited about seeing my sisters. So this is certainly something to look forward to!

Keep the mood and the food real............


  1. I think it's good to have taken a break from weight loss - practicing maintenance is very necessary! Sounds like you are ready, mentally, to get back on the horse and lose some weight...and you will be one smokin'hot mother-of-the-groom come March!

    So happy for you that your sisters and family will be coming for a visit - I remember the last time your Tokyo sister made it out, how excited you were. Fun times ahead - yay!

  2. Yep, I agree with Shelley. I think it's okay to maintain for a while. I never learned to do that before, so not gaining is a victory!

    I am thrilled that your "sissies" are coming! How fun! And the baby shower to boot - all good things.

    I hear you on the stocking up - while I didn't stock up, I did do a bit of planning tonight and rode to the store to pick up a couple of things to make tomorrow's meals a bit more interesting!

    Feb, March!
    Totally do-able!

  4. The last few weeks have not been good for me in the eating department...too much stress and/or fun with visitors = lots of food and booze = weight gain (4 lbs...boooo). So now that everyone is gone, I'm trying to get back on the straight and narrow. It's hard! :-( but I (we) can do it.

    Hang in there, you can definitely lose 25 lbs in 9 months. But even if you don't lose that much, you'll still be a gorgeous Mother of the Groom.

  5. I agree with the other ladies that maintaining sometimes is what we need. I'm tickled for you that your sisters are coming to visit too.


Tell me what you think!
