Weigh In Postponed....

I was due to weigh in this evening but I think that I'm going to move my date with the scale to Thursday mornings.......not that this will postpone any monumental events or unveilings but by the time I get home it will be after eating and after the gym - both of these can cause my weight to fluctuate by a few pounds. I've been really struggling this week already so I don't want a false reading to discourage me.

On the no artificial sweetener front.......I've been doing good. I should say that I do still have the occassional diet soda and sugar free candy but on a whole I have decreased my intake by probably 85%. I can really tell a difference in how I feel and LOOK.......I hate feeling bad but I really HATE looking bad/bloated. So as of today, the fat/skin rolls on my back seem to be diminishing! I must admit that my eating has been a little out of control the last couple of days......nothing really bad but I've just been starving for the most part ALL THE FREAKING TIME!! So a bite here and there may come back to bite me in the butt but I am holding out hope!

On a brighter note - we had an offer on our house today - it's been on the market for a few months. The offer was low low low but we have countered and are keeping our fingers crossed. The problem with this whole scenario is that I am super paranoid about changes........really, I'm the wierdo who would just assume live in an apartment, drive the same car, work at the same job and eat the same foods every day. I like order and structure and currently - there is NONE of that in my life - just say a prayer for my sanity and our house situation........if you can??

Guess I should get back to work - I'm slowly trying to catch up with everyone but that is easier said than done. Please know that even if I haven't commented on your blog that I haven't forgotten you!

I'm saying a prayer for ya, house situation and sanity :) Like you I don't do well with at all. I'm much happier to have things go the same way, everyday. OCD? Maybe.

I will cheer you along, I know we can get the last of our weight off together :)

Sending good thoughts about the house I know how stressful changes to the basic needs can make life. Hang in there Steph!!

Great job on avoiding the artificial sweetener, I've cut way back too but I still enjoy it in my morning coffee. I can't give that up!

Good luck with the weigh in.

I'm praying for you, you always know that. Although I don't wish craziness on anyone, it is a relief to know I'm not alone on feeling totally out of routine and sorts.
I know that God has a plan and your house situation will work out for the best.
