Marvelous Monday melt-down (Day 157)

WendysAtkinsrevolutionrollToday I weigh in. I am going to admit right now that I’ve been no Saint. I’ve probably been a little more ‘ain’t’.

I say, “So be it.” It happens. I did largely manage to refrain from soy, and I didn’t have any wheat to tell of, so I’m happy enough. I did have some popcorn, a bit of granola, and some Nut Thins to excess, a Peep, some soup, and then some plantain chips. Aside from the inflammation I’m dealing with today, I can’t complain.

That said, I’m back in the trenches putting my nitty together with my gritty!

So how did I do?

Yeah, well, I’m up this week (no surprise), but I know it’ll come off again.

Total lost for me: 83 pounds

Total for all of our friends so far in our Valentine’s Day Take it Off  Challenge (link): 942.98 pounds!

Total for all of our friends losing altogether? 7216.42 pounds!


I am pretty thrilled at how well everyone is doing. We have 2 weeks left in the challenge, so keep up the efforts. Wew wew!


Now on to how I’ve been doing with my weight loss and continued sussing out of foods to which I’m intolerant or allergic to… Be sure to do your thing.

Monday, February 4

I ate this:
Breakfast: Pistachios
Late Lunch: Taco Star with the chips (woo woo!) (It’s huge, so I typically skip dinner)
Late Snack: Carbmaster Cherry yogurt + watermelon seeds + pistachios

Notes: I had a slight gain today, but so what. It happens. I embrace my imperfection. Here is to a great week!

What I learned:

I am so sleepy today.

I find that when I’m tired I don’t do as good a job as I should on projects. Taking a break to sleep, medicate or just read/watch TV might mean initial, limited productivity, but it means I’ll get more done after resting because my brain had a chance to rest.

  1. Watermelon seeds? Say it ain’t so! Do elaborate please.

  2. AdriAnne Everett says

    You ate watermelon seed? For real? Ive never heard of that. How were they?

  3. Great job shaking off a “off week” – we all have them!

    Just so I’m clear – you EAT watermelon seeds? I never heard of that before. Also where do you find Carbmaster Cherry yogurt?

  4. I’m up again this week too. Yes I ate a bunch of crap Fri/Sat but I ran 11 miles Sunday. 11! Apparently I still ate more than I ran. Frustrating.

  5. Maxine Johnson says

    Tell me about the burger in the picture above! (salivating) Is there a recipe for the bread?

  6. Congrats on amaing weight loss! My kids took me to a store called “It’s Sugar” aka: gummy bear crack palace. They bought gummy bears, and I tried just a few ( gummy bears are my kryptonite). Was pleased that I did not devour an entire bag, which I used to do in a past life. They still have a bag of gummy frogs starring at me suductively, must look away…
