Back down the full 20lbs and then some! I've been to Curves 3 times this week (everyday since we've joined) and I really think it is helping. The entire time I am on a machine all I can think is "get rid of flabby skin, get rid of flabby skin" and it makes me work even harder...

I Have Owned It...

OK. I am owning it. Throwing it out there. Proclaiming it to the world. I have gained weight. There I said it. Not only did I say it, but I have posted it in the sidebar. There. Done.

On the up: I had gained 5 on vacation and now I am only up 1.2lbs :) Baby steps!

Somebody's lyin'

So I joined Curves today. One of the things I was looking forward to was being measured. Weird, I know. But I haven't taken my measurements since the day of surgery and I am dying to find out what the new numbers are!

So according to the lady at Curves I am down in all areas, except my arms. Maybe I am imagining things, but I think my arms are smaller. My shirt sleeves are looser - I've gone down a size for cryin' out loud! I know not everyone measures the same. So who do I believe? Is the Curves lady's measurements higher than the hospital's?

I have decided that I am going with that. The lady at Curves measures bigger than the hospital. With that in mind...

I am down in all areas! YES! (Isn't it great how I can twist things to work in my favor? It's a gift.)

The Vacation is OVER

So I went on solid foods and then headed to Rocky Point, Mexico for 6 days...and gained 5 pounds. Notice that I did not post my weight on the sidebar. I figure - 'oh well' at least I know I can lose it.

I think the problem came from the choices of food. I didn't ever order my own meal, I just ate off of everybody's plate - a shrimp here, a shrimp there. So my week consisted of lots and lots of fried shrimp. Coconut fried shrimp, deep fried shrimp, fried shrimp in orange sauce. All yummy. All fried. As of yesterday (one day back) I had dropped 3 of the 5. Whew. Back on target.

Early next week I am joining Curves. So let the workout begin!
