Whoopdy Doo!

Well, today was a wonderful surprise! I was down 2.6 pounds, and that was AFTER I'd had a cup of coffee.

I woke up at 6:15 and couldn't get back to sleep, so I decided to make use of the time by drinking a cup of coffee (it was already made, since Josh sets it for 5:00a.m.) and reading in bed. So I did just that and it wasn't until after I finished my cup that I remembered I needed to weigh myself. I am just 0.2oz shy of my lowest weight from my last round. I am really, really hoping this will be my final round.

Since I gave myself the entire month of August off from dieting of any sort, I'm hoping my body will be more willing to let those pounds go, and quickly.

Yesterday was really easy, eating wise. I didn't get too hungry and didn't crave things I shouldn't have. I also managed to get in over 2L of water yesterday. I'm going to have to check out Erin's suggestion of Crystal Light Sport, which is flavored naturally. I suspect it has calories, though, as almost all Crystal Light has 5 or 10 calories per serving. Keeping my fingers crossed, though.

I need to get back to drinking tea, but haven't found one I like without creamer. That will really help me get my water in, keep me from wanting to snack, and help keep me warm on the cold days ahead.

Oh, and my dear mom informed me today that binging (even though Blogger doesn't tell me so) is incorrect. It should be bingeing. But see, now Blogger says THAT is incorrect, so I don't know. I like saying binging, just cuz it reminds me of Chandler Bing and I am a fan of Friends. So I may just keep spelling it that way. ;-)

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!


  1. Tell your Mama I'm in her spelling camp. I thought maybe it was a Canadian/American difference, because blogger identifies my bingeing as incorrect too! Drives me nuts! Funny about Chandler. You made me laugh! :)

    Congrats super loser!!!!

  2. hey you~
    Cool about your loss ;)
    About drinks that are calorie, but also chemical free... my newest drink is talking rain. It is sparkling water that has a taste. It's not sweet, but it is more fun to drink than plain water. :) Good success today.

  3. ok..so I'll look up "that" word in the dictionary. I have several. I'll get back to you.

    It's always interesting to read about your drops in weight. Yeah for you!!!

  4. I just commented but now I don't see it??? So here it is again:

    Just an FYI -- my blog name was changed, probably why it didn't pull up for you. It is here: http://7blessingsfromabove.blogspot.com/ =)

  5. It seems like giving yourself the month of August off is going to really really help you!! And, I'm jealous of your body's ability to maintain, good grief!! That is SO awesome. It means that with just a little effort on your part, you should stay footloose and fancy free at 130 for the rest of your life~! LOL or something like that, anyway. Good luck on this round - I follow your progress avidly, by the way, even though I don't comment very much! =)
