6 pounds lost.... ALREADY??

Yep... 2 days of staying focused and I have lost 6 pounds already. At first I couldn't believe it. I did a little stepping off and on about ten times before I finally believed my scale was not broken. Yeah!!! The amazing part of it all is that I have not been taking out anything... just making sure I eat a very nutritious meal every time. Protein, veggies, carbs. Staying focused if definatley key for me losing weight.

Yesterday I had a little bit of a meltdown. My 3 yr old got a hold of some scissors and cut her hair.... and her sisters hair. I almost died. So I tried to make their hair as even as possible... looks a little bit choppy... then I went into their bedroom to clean up. I sat down on one of the beds ... and just to make this clear, they have toddler beds, not full beds.... and it broke! I broke my daughters bed. The wood snapped in two. I died. My husband had come home just in time to see all of this... so I was even more humiliated. I grabbed the car keys and went for a drive.. I cried for miles. I am just so tired of things falling apart. Mostly its just me falling apart. Working two nights a week makes me exhausted all week long. I have let my body get out of shape. I just felt miserable. The cry was good... and so was the cigarette. I drove back home and walked straight to my bed where I slept until this morning. I feel better today.. and the girls hair will grow back. Its time to eat breakfast.. and then take the girls for a bike ride!

Find your focus.... today is going to be a success!

(oh and thanks for all the support... I LOVE you guys)

Holy cow girl! Good for you! Super happy and proud of you! Can you imagine what you can do if you stay on track for a whole week?? Keep it up and keep us posted.

About your little one's hair - you will look back on that in 10 years and laugh. :)

the picture the sitter took of my daughter the day she cut her own hair is one of my most cherished.

You hang in there! Good for you for going for a drive to cry instead of the fridge!

Awesome job on the loss. You rock!
