Weigh-in Wednesday

Yeah! Three good weeks in a row. I'm still having a problem getting back into the swing of things mentally, but physically I'm doing most of what I need to do.

I'm down another 1.2 pounds this week, a total of 4.8 so far this year. I'm part of a work contest for weight loss right now. In December, we set our own goals and put $50 into the 'pot.' If we don't reach our goal by February 29, the money from the pot gets split amongst those who did make their goal. Best case scenario: I make my goal, earn the $50 I put in back, and no one else makes their goals (j/k) so I get all of their $50s. Worst case scenario: I don't make my goal and the others get to split my money up. In December (before the holidays, mind you), I set a goal of 12 pounds. After my gain in December, I think I'm down about 3. Yikes! I've got 5 weeks to lose 9 pounds. I am poor. I am determined to at least come out even. 9 pounds is a lot of weight to lose!

Sorry I'm not blogging much yet, especially commenting on your blogs. I'm still not blogging on Max's computer, and I'm there 4 or 5 nights a week. So, I either have to sneak it in at work, or wait until I'm at my own house (usually Sunday, Monday, and Thursday nights).

Good job on the loss. That's awesome. As far as being mentally OP, it will come. When I decided to go off in July, and then back on in October, it took me until Thanksgiving to get my head back into the game. You'll get there!

You will definitely have to post your recipes if they are good. I love new recipes.

Congrats on the loss. Good luck with the contest. What a great motivator!

Great job on the loss! I agree that's awesome to have a work contest - I swear people at my office would have me gain about a million pounds if they could with all the junk that comes in every day. :)

Congrats on your loss!

You and Max had a big talk about his blog reading, and he was terrified you'd break up with him after he broke the rule. Do you think maybe you could blog at his house if you revisit the topic with him one more time? He seems like a reliable guy. Dan knows my weight-loss blog URLs but also knows he's not allowed to read unless I give him specific permission for a particular post.

Ooh! money is such an awesome motivator for me. Wish I could have a possible payoff like that! maybe I can convince my sisters to do something like that =D

Is your blog a secret? I've tried pretty hard to keep mine a secret from my fiance. I'm not 100% sure why exactly, just would rather I have a place to rant about what's going on away from him most of the time I guess.

Congrats on your loss girl. And snicker snicker at not being able to get blog time in - Max time is most certainly the priority girl! Love it that things are good for you.
