weigh in:  156.o lbs
gain of: 1.o pound

Since I have not posted since I reached 155 you all are probably wondering what in the world is going on?! :)  (...was busy and my router was down, also.)  I remained at 155 until Saturday morning, the day we left for my Grandma's.  I just couldn't break 155 and it was driving me nuts.  So, I went to Easter with protocol meals in hand, fully knowing I would probably give in two seconds into the festivities.  And, boy did this happen.  There was so much yummy food I just said to myself, "Who gives a ____, and I am just going to enjoy myself and not worry about this stupid diet for awhile." (don't really think it is stupid, just trying to make my point :))

Surprisingly, this morning after not weighing yesterday morning I was at 156.  I was really able to keep myself pretty composed throughout the weekend and although I ate, I ate with a sort of control that I could live with. (Oh, and I dosed only on Saturday morning and that was it during the weekend- just thought other doses would be a waste.)  However, this is where Easter weekend and letting my diet go for a couple days gets a little hazy.  I have been eating all day long today, Monday.  Great!  I got by with only a pound gain and now here I am really trying to make the damage greater.  I am feeling quite sick right now and I hope it is out of my system so I can get back to my focus and goal:  Get to 145 for this round! 

Holidays can be a nightmare for dieters.  If you made it out unscathed, you should throw yourself a parade. lol!  I will throw you a parade and beg you for your secrets. :)

Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful, lovely weekend and I am glad to be back.  Easter was so incredibly nice and I was so happy to spend it with my family.  Have I mentioned my Grandma is wonderful? lol!  Well, she is and I wish I could see her everyday.  

...I will be back tomorrow morning with the results of my unfortunate prolonged hiatus.

Oh, and just want to acknowledge my 100 FOLLOWERS!!!  Thank you all so much!  I never thought in a million years I would have 100 followers!  I remember getting excited when I had 10. :)  I know you really shouldn't judge the success of your blog based on number of followers, but I can't help but think that is pretty awesome. :)  Thanks again, and I hope to continue and share the love also.        


  1. I had one little cheat on Easter and haven't lost since. I went up .2 yesterday and stayed the same today. Frustrating.

  2. It sounds like you and I are on the same program - I like the term "hiatus"! We're both back with a vengence tomorrow and you are dropping weight at incredible speed remember! I hope we both get to our 140's goals and we can start the next round together too! I love reading your updates, they are always so inspiring.
