Day 120 - Weigh In

Today was weigh in day and to be honest I was a little worried with it being TOM. The one thing that I have noticed is that I used to gain about 5 pounds during that time. As I have lost weight I am not gaining as much. Anyways I have lost 1.8 pounds this week. I am so happy yet there I go again so close to 2 pounds. I swear it's like the scale does it on purpose. Either way I am happy as can be! I am finally down 25 pounds for this journey! From my highest weight I am down 37 pounds.

Zumba was canceled today which made me a little sad. Isn't great that I am getting to the point where I am sad because I can't go to a class at the gym!!! Either way I shoveled snow for an hour and I am telling you tossing it over that wall is great exercise though my shoulder hurts a little.I know that wall is at least 5 feet high. I should have nice arms at the rate it snows here. I came in after and did a power mile with weights. I wanted to do more but I think I am good today.

I finally broke down and ordered some workout clothes from Wal*Mart. I spent $80 on new shirts and bottoms to stay up. My shirts that I work out in were starting to look like I got lost in them. If I was doing videos at home I wouldn't care but when you are looking at yourself in a wall of mirrors it makes me feel extra fat again. Now this is the first time I have ever bought clothes off the internet and I am praying they will fit. This was something I would of never ever done before. The prices here are way to high. I got 2 pairs of bottoms and a shirt for the price of 1 pair of bottoms on base. Good news is since we have to have them shipped over seas they should arrive around March 19th so I can lose some more weight!!

Dinner tonight is wheat pasta with fresh mushrooms, zucchini, onion and spaghetti sauce. First time I have made dinner since my hubby left. He better be hungry when he gets home.

I'm wondering: what have you been eating then when Chris was away?

Congrats on the loss, your hard work is finally paying off, you just had to be patient!

Hope they don't cancel the classes too often since you like it so much.

Have a great evening with your hub.
