How much did she lose this week?

A 10oz. Maltese puppy!

My very sweet and supportive co-worker (I may have mentioned I need to lose a whole her) has decided she's going to find something each week that weighs what I lost. I think it's a very fun way to keep track of my progress.

SO, not a banner loss but I'll take it. My Tanita says my water weight is up and I think It's just plain ol' PMS. I probably owe it also to the bottle of white star champagne, the 2 bottles of red wine and the 2 beers I had over the weekend. I don't usually drink that much (if at all) but my friend was in town and that's just the way it is. Just a little reminder that alcohol has calories too.

I liked my 2nd meeting and will continue to go. The leader tries to get everyone to interact and people have some really good, practical ideas.

I'm proud of myself for several things this week. (this week being my Wednesday to Wednesday week of WW = easy to remember!) I logged everything I put into my mouth and I exercised to relieve stress.

Last night I was a big ball of rage again. We lost our favorite and 2nd biggest client. They are trying to get what we do for cheaper. I'm sure it's out there but I can promise you that they are going to miss the passion I had for that work. I thought about it on the weekend. I worked on my vacation days etc. because I believed in it. I really felt like I was making a difference and helping their brand grow. Now it's gone and I don't know what to do with myself! I'm worried about our future as a company and I really hope we can find something to replace it. I also hope I can find something that will give me as much of a sense of pride as that did. I was SO angry and hurt but instead of drowning my sorrows in a pizza on the sofa, I did my BL Yoga DVD (still awesome) and made the Tilapia and veggies on the grill as planned. I asked myself if eating the pizza and lounging around was really going to make me feel better and the answer was no. If the answer had been yes I would have done it but I was really honest with myself about what I needed. I guess that answer was Bob :)

I'm off to start another successful week. Thanks everyone for all of your support and sweet comments as always!


  1. I love the thought of finding something that equals the weight you lost. THat can really put it into perspective.

    Sorry about losing your client. It is a very scary time. I'd love to say not to worry but with so many of my friend having lost jobs, no one is safe. But, good for you for not drowning your sorrows in pizza.

  2. So sorry about the stressful time at work. It's everywhere it seems. But you kept your head and didn't compound your problems by gaining back the Maltese puppy (too funny but great idea!). Keeping my fingers crossed for better times soon.

  3. Big drag about the client.

    Nice job handling it.

    Your co-worker sound very sweet and supportive.

  4. Hey there! I wanted to tell you that you're doing a god job, and making good healthy decisions! Good for you!

  5. By the way, I think that's a really great and motivating thing to find things that weigh what you lost. What a great motivator! I did that a little while ago on my blog, and I think I will do it again. It really helps to keep motivated by doing that.

  6. Hi I was looking up sites for weight loss support blogs and I came across your blog I too am hoping to make 2011 a better year.

    I'm on day 2 of making changes with my diet/lifestyle etc so I too know what a struggle it is..every year I make the same resolution and by the 10th ive failed so i just give up.

    I hope we can keep in touch good luck with your changes!
