Weigh-in Week 10 & 11....

Week 10....

Week 10 was not a good week. I was under the weather with a sinus infection and the weather outside was gray and ugly, not to mention cold. I did not journal my food, I did absolutely NO exercise and little if any housework. I ended up gaining 2.4 pounds taking me back up to 227.6.

Sick + SAD/Depression (not to mention LAZY!!) = WEIGHT GAIN!!

Week 11...

Oh the sunshine, beautiful BEAUTIFUL sunshine....This past week was the start of Daylight Savings Time. Usually I am not a fan of losing an hour (of my precious sleep), but it just so happened that the weather turned nice. We went from freezing rain and snow to sunshine and 45 degrees - which feels like a heatwave after 3 months of below freezing temps. I woke up on Monday revived. My attitude did a complete 180. I had so much energy to spare that I came home and started cleaning out my master closet. I started journalling my food again. Tuesday - I went to the gym which gave me more energy for Wednesday. Gym Thursday and again today. 

Weigh in for the biggest loser competition was this morning. I hesitantly stepped on the scale as my scale here at home is mean spirited. It likes to play nasty mind games with me, giving me different numbers every time.

And then the moment of truth came...


I screamed so loud they heard me down in customer service. "Good number hey Leslie??" Oh yeah!! I am so happy to be back below 225 even if it is just a smidgen under. My total lost since starting our Biggest Loser competition is 16.2 pounds leaving me 8.8 to go to reach my 25 pound goal by April 3rd - our final weigh in. I may not make it to my goal but I should be close. As my Mama says "Good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise!" 

The presence of the Sun this week has an old hymn playing in my head. I love it when we sing it at church because it's a make you feel happy song.

There's Sunshine in My Soul Today
There's sunshine in my soul today, More Glorious and bright
Than glows in any earthly sky, For Jesus is my light,

O there's sunsine, blessed sunshine
When the peaceful happy moments roll:
When Jesus shows His smiling face,
There is sunshine in my soul

There's music in my soul today, A carol to my King
And Jesus listening can hear The songs I can not sing...

There's spring time in my soul today, For when the Lord is near,
The dove of peace sings in my heart, The flowers of grace appear...

There's gladness in my soul today, And hope, and praise, and love,
For blessings which he gives me now, For joys laid up above....

How can you not be happy when singing that?!?!? Love it!
