So, I woke up this morning and tried to fake being asleep for a good 15 minutes because I knew it was weigh-in day and I was nervous.

Since I skipped last week (which means I actually weighed myself, but didn't count it as an official weigh-in), I've been stuck at 284 for the past few days (since that Wednesday or so). I weighed in today at 280!!!!

That means, based on official weigh-ins, I've lost 2 more pounds. But, based on my small stint at 284, I've lost 4 pounds!! I'm really excited about this because I really was starting to lose hope when that number wouldn't budge.

I feel absolutely wonderful. I've been eating right & it feels amazing to not have that junk in me. I forgot how good it feels to actually feel cleansed!! And I think I've actually gone the week with no fast food or any crap like that...and to be honest, I'm not even craving it :-)

This week is going to be my biggest challenge since I'm heading to Charlotte tomorrow for my Opa's (that means Grandpa for anybody wondering) 90th birthday!! I can't believe he's 90...he's still going like he's my age!! Then it's off to Myrtle Beach with the family and some close family friends for a few days...right before classes start. I'll be gone until my next weigh-in which means probably eating out more & being around food that I shouldn't put in my system.

I've already talked to my Aunt & one of my friends coming to the beach. Both said they would workout with me, so hopefully that'll motivate me to keep me, I wouldn't be surprised if my mom volunteers to go for a walk/jog with me at the beach. And then for eating...while, when we're out, I'm going to stick to what I know is good for me. Salads, vegetables, grilled chicken. Then at the beach house, I'm going to try to get the stuff that I've enjoyed eating on day 1, so I won't even need to be tempted while I'm down there!

I can't wait to get away...I'm in desperate need of a vacation. Not that I don't love my job or Raleigh, but I haven't gotten away since March!! Not even for a weekend trip! I just haven't had the time. So, it'll be nice to see people that don't see me very often...and maybe they'll see a difference?? We'll see!!

Way to go - that is a fantastic loss! I hope you have a great time at the beach. Enjoy!

Ahh yay! I'm glad you're doing so great! I can't say I've been doing that amazing and I totally forgot tomorrow is my first goal date, how bad am I? I guess I stopped worrying because I lost a lot initially. Well this post inspired me to keep going, no matter what is says on the scale tomorrow! Congrats!

Great job on the weight loss!!! So glad you are feeling good!! That is awesome!! I would suggest you take some healthy stuff with you. Last weekend, I thought I would have some healthy choices when I visited my skinny sister. NOPE! I just did the best I could, but it was not fun and I did not feel good after eating some things. Just a suggestion!! Keep up the great work!!

Have a great getaway! Just try to make good choices. I know that's easier said than done, but just keep tryin'!
