    Focus on a body part you really like instead of the scale. If I get a number I don't like, I go look at my bum in the mirror!

    thanks for the encouragement. I'm trying not to get discouraged. The scale did the same thing several months back. I was stuck in the low 190's for ever and then I dropped 10 pounds. I think I need to shake things up once in a while to shock my system a bit. I know it sounds weird - but when I have a "cheat" and then go back to being really strict I always seem to lose. Last night I sorta had a "cheat" night. We bought panko shrimp and these bourbon breaded chicken things at Costco - had that for dinner with rum and diet coke as a chaser! So maybe I will see a little drop on the scales in the next few days. I really want to be under 180 by friday.

    We just keep hammering away. Sooner or later, those floors break and we drop through. It is also entirely possible that your scale is unreliable, and will fluctuate a couple of pounds independent of what your body is doing.

    Yes, the unreliable scale issue is one I am dealing with. If I get on the scale 4 times I will get 4 different readings - usually one will repeat itself and then that is the reading I go with.... but methinks a new scale might be a good investment Hopefully your scale will show the improvements soon!

    Dumb scale.............

    I relaxed a bit over the weekend. We had some rum and sweets............... not too much. But it broke my strict 14 - reduced it to a strict 10 and now I'm starting over. The thing is, I didn't lose any weight doing it. I had gone down 4 pounds, but then it bounced back up again for no reason. Story of my life.

    oh well.......... I just have to keep working at it. I walked almost 14 miles last week. So at least I'm doing something right - I can't really control it all now can I? If I'm eating right and walking daily............. the rest will just have to work out on its own.

    It sucks, Jenn.........

    I have just enough time to go take a nice detox bath this morning. Then off to work. I'd really love to just hang at home today. The kitchen table is buried in paperwork that I need to attend to............ bills and deposit for the boatshop mostly. I should have done it over the weekend, but wanted to spend it all with hubby.

    We got our tree yesterday - kid free! Yeah! Hubby didn't even flinch when I asked him when we were going - turned out he had already sorta made plans to meet up with one of our employees and his wife. They were included in the offer to cut a tree for free at the customer/friends tree farm. So, the tree will be brought in next weekend and decorated We got all the outside lights up and the grounds all festive for Christmas. I will post pics after the tree is up.

    Breakfast - 4 eggs, scrambled with salt, pepper and garam masala.

    The rum and sweets over the weekend are causing my legs to ache today. Good reason to not indulge.

    I'm having a hard time catching up on the journals........... I rarely get on this website on the weekends so come monday morning I'm so far behind!!!!
