Month #2 Goal Met!!!

This morning the scale said 249.4 for a loss of 2.4 lbs. this week. That brings me to a grand total of 22.6 lbs. lost in 2 months/8 weeks!!! GOAL MET!!! I'm going to do something hard this week. I'm going to stay off of the scale until next Friday's weigh-in. I've been on it every day this week, watching it go up and down, up and down, and it's had me tied up in knots. I'm just going to eat within my calories, get in some daily exercise, and whatever happens next Friday, happens. It's going to be tough....I'm addicted to that dang scale...but our relationship is a toxic one, lol.

I'm headed off to the unemployment office shortly to sit in line for 3 hours and then find out how to file for an extension. I've been laid off since February and my benefits run out at the end of this month....and still not one single call for a job interview. Say a prayer for me that things go smoothly, because in about 3 short weeks, I'm going to be penniless if I can't get an extension worked out. Say a bigger prayer that SOMEBODY HIRES ME!!!!

I just ran into a girl named Tina at Fat Girl Dives In and I put her on my blogroll. I'm so excited because we're neighbors! She lives in Atlanta too! Tina, if you're reading and you know of any Accounting positions....Pleeeeeaaaassseee let me know! :)


  1. Well done! That is fantastic and that now brings you into the 250s - woo-hoo! Go you!

  2. Awesome weigh day! You know how I feel about scales anywhere near our house. Everyone is different, but I think instead of helping me, weighing everyday would seriously mess with me. Every week for you---every two weeks for me. It's all good. I highly recommend you throw them away or give them to someone. Because if they're not around you can't weigh on them!

    I think your plan is wonderful!

    I'm praying that your job search becomes fruitful really fast...

    My best always,

  3. woo-hoo! Here's to both of us hitting a goal this week!! Happy Dances all around!

    Love you girl...and proud of you!

    Prayers for a job as always


  4. Hurrah for meeting your goal!!! Congrats!!!
    I hope and pray a job comes your way very soon!! Fingers crossed, making it difficult to type.^_^

  5. Congrats on meeting your goal! Will keep my fingers crossed for your job search too! I'm glad to meet another Atlanta blogger!!

    I will be in touch more next week. Right now I'm about to have a heart attack trying to get a portfolio together after not having interviewed for 7 years :)

  6. Awesome job, Tammy! You're doing so great! I'll pray that something works out for your job/money situation. Good luck!

  7. Oh, I also need to email you to ask you something. I can't seem to find your email anywhere, so could you give it to me, or email me at screwdestiny@gmail.com? Thanks.

  8. Great job on the loss, and small world about realizing Tina's so close by. She's a great blogger, one of the first I started following when I got into it.

  9. grats to you! I feel the same way about the scale. So I don't have one! I weigh every 2 weeks at the clinic around the corner. Keep up the good work!

  10. WOO HOO!!! on meeting goal #2, Tammy!
    Yes, please stay off the scale :D
    You might find you like waiting a week & that you feel less stressed about it.
    Focusing on employment & prosperity for you!

  11. Congrats to you Tammy. Good job! I wish I could get down 10 a month, but for some reason I just am not being very good. Why oh why, I wonder, do I self sabotage? Anyway, keep up the good work.

  12. Great job my beautiful girl. Always thinking of you and praying for you. Will increase the prayers for your job search.
    We're proud of you. Keep on keeping on!
    Love, Mom O.

  13. Congratulations on meeting your goal!!! That is a lot of weight gone - great job!!!

    I have that same toxic relationship with my scale and try to weigh once a week or less. It just messes with my mind otherwise!

  14. CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
