Dear 220's...I am getting sick of you!

Good weight loss news...

The few weeks before my cruise I had been going back and forth between the upper 220's. For the life of me I couldnt lose the weight. I dont know what the deal was. The day before my cruise I attempted to get a fill and weighed 228.5. On my cruise I held back a little bit but I definitely enjoyed myself and the free food they had to offer. The day after I got back from the cruise I got my long awaited fill and I weighed 231. Depressing. But gaining 2.5 pounds during my two week vacation wasnt too bad in my opinion.

Well....since then I have been ultra strict with my diet and counting every single calorie that enters my body. I think I have become a calorie-counting-oholic. The result: I weighed 224 this morning. This is exciting news. I realize I have been in the 220's for months. But I dont allow myself to beat myself up about it. Even though the past several months have been lose, gain, lose, gain...I realize what a wonderful life I have and I am my biggest cheerleader. Now it is just time to buckle down...hardcore.


Oh and look at my new night shirt I got in Alaska. I love it!


Goodnight friends! Have a fabulous Tuesday!


  1. Awe......I love that!!!!!!! So cute!!!!!!! Gues what??? I am having my surgery on Thursday! Say a prayer for me!! Dr. Miles is doing it!! :)

  2. It's so funny how we get so wrapped up in the numbers...I was thinking "Dear 220's I wish you would hurry up and get here!". Patience and perseverence my blogging friend. :) You will make it there. BTW, you look great! Keep up the good work.

  3. I hear ya... I am sick of the 230s! I have been on the brink of the 220s forever it seems like. I dunno what the deal is but hopefully we can both break those barriers down soon!!

  4. Well, my starting point is in the 220's. I am banded next week. I am so nervous, but so ready to be our of the 200's completely! I think you look great. Keep working hard!


  5. firt of all, let me say that i'm so sorry you lost your camera and all of your pics! so heartbreaking! i'm a picture hound too, when i went to daytona with my dad and my brother i took about 600 pics. i don't know what i would do if i'd lost my camera or it was stolen.
    now, as for the 220's, you're doing great, keep up the great work. only gaining 2.5 pounds on vacation is awesome! don't beat yourself up over it for even one second! do you hear me?! :D
    you're doing great and you look great. keep up the great work. cute nightgown by the way.
