Day 56 - What a weekend!

I am so sorry for getting behind on the blog! But it's been crazy this weekend! A lot has happened, but thankfully, I have been able to stay on top of my eating end exercise. I have been walking, walking, walking! It's really helped with clearing my head, and a way for me to get away for a little bit. I was out of town for a bit today, so did not get to walk. But my plan is to wake up early and get it done!

I weighed this morning, and the scale said 278.4 - a new low! Yes! That's 54.6 lbs. GONE FOREVER! I think that's also a 4 lb. loss from last weigh-in. I have been thinking more in terms of TOTAL weight loss these days instead of the weekly number. In fact, I don't really concentrate on the number right now. I know that if I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing in terms of eating right and moving, the weight will come off.

NSV: Today I was walking around Sam's Club with my friend, and he mentioned how hard it was to go down the candy aisle. I mentioned that as addicted to candy that I used to be, it no longer even bothers me to be around it! I still can't believe I've kicked that bad habit, but I'm so glad I did. Yeah, sometimes I really miss my Starbucks, but I know my body is so much better off without the sugar and caffeine.

Good news to report: My ex and I signed our divorce papers yesterday! Tomorrow our lawyer will file them, and then we have a 105-day waiting period until it's final. This is a big step, and since my ex has been fighting me about it, it was a cause for celebration when he finally agreed to sign them. For all of you who know how he is, I'm watching my back just in case he decides to go nuts. But he had the kids today and seemed pretty calm, so hopefully we will both be able to end this chapter of our lives on the best note possible.

OK... it's been a long day, and an even longer weekend. I'm off to bed!

Great job on the new low!

Please do keep a careful eye out for your soon-to-be ex-DH. Also, enlist some others (like your neighbors) to help keep a watchful eye out for you.

Great going on the loss! Your progress is amazing.

Hope the divorce proceeds smoothly and that your ex behaves. It must be a difficult time for you and I'm holding you in my thoughts. Hang in there.

I just had to comment. I randomly started reading your blog when you posted about it on introplay and have since read it start to finish... You are truly very inspiring. In fact, since I started reading your blog I haven't had artificial sweetners or soda. AND I have woken up at 5:30 before work to workout. Thanks for being such an inspiration! You look beautiful! :)

Amazing progress! I think that's totally cool that you can stay that dedicated to puttin off the weight.

There's a really good body cleanse called Nature Cleanse that I use for wrestling to drop a weight class for matches. It's organic and everything.

The website for it offers it free (trial) and you just have to pay shipping but you can check that out too if you want.

The site is http://www.clensemybody.com


Just a suggestion. Good luck with everything else though. :)
