Day 8: Happiness

Today's Weight:    203.4
Yesterday's:         204.2
LOSS:                 .8 pounds
Total Loss:            9.2 pounds

I wasn't expecting much today. I ate tenderloin that my husband smoked and when I plugged it into my smartpeople food log this morning, I see that it sent me over my 500 limit. I also enjoyed a lobster tail....without butter and you know what? It was awesome without it!

I also didn't drink enough water.

I went to the grocery store to do my bi-monthly shopping and lucky for me Bobbi wanted to go with me. I don't feel like I can be trusted to go to the store alone right now. I'm doing well with the program but I'm afraid that once I'm off on my own I might cheat. My food boyfriend was lurking around every corner....

Kyle at Getting Better and Better (he vlogged...see how cute he is) tagged me for meme this week.  He wants to know the 10 things that make me happy.  Happy is my theme this my other blog, I'm working on my very own happiness project and I've got a bunch of friends joining me.

  1. Way to go Connie. Just remember that what you think is what will be. Be positive and things will start to open for you. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

  2. congrats connie on making such a whole hearted effort. and this whole posting your weight, scare me later. KUDOS.

  3. Before you know it, you're going to break the 200 mark. How exciting! One day at a time. If the tenderloin and lobster was a splurge, just get right back on the program, drink more water and tea. Think long-term consistency.

    I read that it takes about three weeks for a lifestyle change to REALLY take hold. You'll battle old patterns until then. One week down, two more to go. You can do this!

  4. *blushes...yes...I am cute! (thanks...*hugs)

  5. Thanks Connie, I could almost copy your list because there are 7 things on your list that make me happy too but I'll make my own list on my next blog.


  6. You're at almost 10 pounds! You should put in your daily updates what day you're on too.

    Keep it up girl!

  7. You are doing so well, I'm very proud of you. :)

  8. Great List! I'll be sure to do a Happiness post on my blog later today! Thanks for the linkage!

    You are doing phenomenal!!!

  9. As much as I love butter (and I do mean LOVE!), I actually prefer my crab legs and lobster without. I think the butter crowds the taste.

    Way to go, keeping yourself accountable at the grocery store. I know what you mean. It's like setting a junkie loose in a crack den ;-)

  10. OMG, we have exactly the same list! I should just copy & paste yours... No wonder we were insta-friends :) You're doing awesome, Girlfriend!

  11. Congrats on the loss. Great list!
