I weighed in at 232.0 this morning for a loss of 7 lbs this week!! Granted, most of it was sodium, but 232.0 looks a heck of a lot better than the 239.0 I saw staring back at me last week, so I'll take it! I didn't salt 90% of my food here at home this week, so that was a big help, too. I also worked out in the gym 4 days this week...not my usual 5 days, but still good workouts.
About the unemployment checks....one of them showed up in my bank account this morning, but the last check was still missing. I went back up to the unemployment office AGAIN this morning (we're very close to being on a first-name basis at this point)....and found out that although I certified, the system did not automatically generate the check like it was SUPPOSED to. Love that system. So the lady had to go in and manually release it and I should receive it in 2 or 3 days. As of right now, that is my last paycheck. The lady told me to keep certifying every Sunday, in case an extension goes through, but if I don't see something in my account in a couple of weeks, then I'm "dead in the water". Lovely phrase, don't ya' think?
On to more positive things. I'm changing some stuff on my blog, simply because I want to. As everyone knows I've been having a hard time for quite a while. Can't seem to get below 230 lbs for whatever reason. As a matter of fact, next week is my cycle, and with the extreme pain of the PCOS, the psychotic hormones, and the horrible bloating....my main goal will just be to try and maintain....I certainly don't expect to lose anything. I needed something to help me see the positive sides of what I've accomplished so far.
I'm changing my tattoo and my ticker on my sidebar to reflect my HIGHEST weight....the weight I was before I started blogging....340 lbs. I started blogging at 272 lbs. The truth is though....I used to weigh 340, and I did all the work and put in all the effort to get to where I am now at 232. I want to be able to look at those numbers on my sidebar every time I log on, instead of the same old 40 lbs lost. I need a change...a positive change. So when you see those numbers on my sidebar now, that's the explanation for them. :)
I'm going to wrap this up with a few food pics from stuff I made this week.....a chicken burger, made out of ground chicken breast, tomato, dill pickle, red onion, lite mayo & ketchup....a boiled egg I had as a snack....curry pork & veggies I made in the crockpot....and a breakfast scramble made with Egg Beaters, Canadian bacon, 2% American cheese, diced roma tomato and green onions.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone! :)
