Weigh-In Day/Half Way To Goal!!!

I am back on a Tuesday again, so it would seem that I am getting my junk together :) 
This morning's weigh in was quite a surprise for me.  You may have noticed that I have been struggling.  I have been really making this harder than it has to be, I am good at that ;) 
Anyway, because of the struggle - and the fact that I have had to keep stopping myself from overeating, I figured this would be a pretty scary week.  According to the scale anyway. 
But no, I guess I am finally pulling ahead a bit. 
My weigh in this morning was 166.76 lbs, so I have lost 1.98 lbs this week.   
Plus, I didn't realize this until I updated my ticker just now, I AM OFFICIALLY OVER HALF WAY TO MY GOAL!!!!!!!  Wooooo Hooooo!!! 
Sorry about the yelling ;)  I just got a little excited. 
So, for future reference:  "Cara, no matter how badly you are doing, no matter how much junk you have given into and no matter how much you want to give up - DON'T!!!  It is never too late to stop and choose better.  You had to do it over and over and over again the last couple of weeks, and it was hard, but it was doable.  You did it!  Keep doing it!  Oh and you are Awesome :)"
I never before thought I could stop myself in the middle of one of these downward spirals, but I did.  A lesson learned!  That is a good thing.
I started my own two week challenge yesterday.  I haven't posted it yet and usually that would be a good excuse not to start, but I am going to do it backwards this time :)  I did a really great workout, and it felt fabulous!  I will be back to post the details, today is day two. 

Gotta go for now, bye!


  1. Congrats on the loss Cara! It's so exciting that you are over half way there!

  2. That is great!! Screw apologizing, yell away! We're all happy for you.. 50% of the way down is a great accomplishment..

    And I can't wait to hear about this challenge.. :)

    Btw, loving the pep talk you gave yourself..

  3. Congratulations, Cara! That is so awesome! Great loss and a great victory. Isn't success just that, winning battles despite difficulties? I love that little talk you made for yourself. I might use it too. Once again, congrats. You are doing awesome!
