Sunday June 10th 2012 weigh in

So today was weigh in day.  I was kinda worried this week because I had several days where not only did I not track but I had no control over food choices though I did over how much I ate of those foods, always trying to do less than I would normally and less than I would really like thinking that best.  And with added stress of my son having an unexpected surgery and hospitilization and some stress since at home with all this I am pretty happy with the fact I did not gain AND I lost something! I am loving this new scale from weight watchers you can decorate I saw online.  This is not my scale but its on you can buy and decorate!  I love the butterflies and alot of what it says :)  Someday I may get to splurge and get this :)  or go get some stickers at michaels for my current scale! :)

Loss for the week: - 1.6 lbs ( 1 lb 9 1/2 oz)
Starting weight: 345 lbs
Current weight: 314.4 lbs
Total loss to date: 30.6 lbs
Total Percentage Lost: 8.9 %
BMI: 50.7
Pounds left to loose: 169.4

So this puts me at 30 pounds lost!!!  woohoo This was fun to make because to make it seem real to me since I do not see it I had to go searching for pics of things that were 30 lbs!  Cool to know a bushel of lima beans unshelled or okra is 30 lbs!  I found the fruit an that looks like alot of fruit!  and then of course the mayo and fat is cool to see! 30 lbs is more than it seems when I look in the mirror if I look at this, which also means the 200 I need to loose total is way more than I even know by looking in the mirror.  

Sooo, having lost 30 lbs puts me at a little over 1/8 of my weight I need to loose being gone!  Soo  I just need to do this 7 more times!  The problem is it has taken me 5 months to get here which means at this rate it will be 25 and half more months before I am at goal and would have taken me at least 2 and half years to loose 200 lbs.  If was loosing 2 lbs steady a week like I should be I would be at least 46 pounds down instead of 30. BUT 30 is better than none down or a gain, so trying to be ok with this!

Saw this on a friends facebook this week and really liked it!  

good point!!!

Loved this too!  Always on the look out for inspirational things in the journey and mores the better when a butterfly involved! So, its weird to me because as big as I am I am such a girly girl!  Love purple, pink, flowers, butterflies, feminine things and feeling girly.  But because I am so large that seems weird to me and like I can't be that because of my size.  Does that make sense at all to anybody?  Someone questioned me recently when I said something about being a girly girl inside when I am not able to really be one.  So what do yall think??
