Reward For Loss

I am 4 oz. from hitting the 50lb. weight loss goal as of this morning. So I went and bought myself a reward. I won't wear them out till I hit that though.
I love them! I have a major shoe fetish. Since April I have lost 4 inches on each calf, 4 1/2 inches off each arm, 4 inches off my waist, 2 inches off the thighs, and 2 1/2 off the hips. I have gained energy and feel so much better about being in my skin. For the next 6 weeks I will be concentrating on toning up.
Some of this has been repeated on my regular blog.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Vent and My Weakness

I don't understand why I sabotage myself. I am doing so good then I snack on something not so good. Thinking to myself I will have just a bite or two and soon I find I have eaten all most all of what I had in my hand. I know I shouldn't even keep things in my house that are tempting to me but it is so hard when I love to bake and cook goodies for my family. I know excuses excuses! Does anyone else do this? Am I the only wack job that can't resist buying items to make for the family then snacking on them. Like chocolate chips for instance. These are a major dangerous item for me to have. I thought keeping them in my freezer would help me not to eat them but, my favorite way of eating chocolate is frozen. GO FIGURE!
And then I have been craving Jalapeno & cheese hot dogs. WHY ? I don't know they just sound so yummy and are. Yes broke down yesterday and bought one, ate it, enjoyed it and payed for it the rest of the day. When will I learn to not put garbage in my body. My body really doesn't like it once it is in.
I wanted to get to the 50 pound loss point and got so close and blew it. I know it is a little thing but I needed to share my pitty party and get over it. So thank you for letting me vent.
It is a new day and it is going to be a good one I can feel it in the air. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Update On Progress

Since I last checked in I have lost 10.2 pounds. I am pleased with this no doubt but it could have been so much more. To be honest I fell off the wagon and got ran over by the wheels. I had a few EXCUSES come to my life. Stress with emotions in my life, that caused me to go back to the habit of eating what sounded good and not caring until later. This condition lasted a week! Then my monthly visitor was over a week late and so I stayed at the same point and that irritated me to no end and caused more emotional eating. Although I am happy to say it wasn't all just chocolate I craved protein. So I got my butt back on track and I am losing again. YEAH for determination. I have lost some inches here and there and feel so much better.
 I actually got a complement from hubby last night. He was hugging me and said to me," Your getting skinny!" This is the first time he has said anything to me about my work. Okay he has said things like," you are doing a good job, keep up the great work," and things like that but this was a biggy to me. Not that I am doing this for him but it is nice to hear it from our men once in a while if not more. he he
 I am changing my workout a little this week to maybe rev up the metabolism a little and shake things up.
 Hope you all have a great week. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
