That's right! I said it! I will not! I refuse!

I'm not going to let the stress and anger that is plaguing me today from a few co-workers get the best of me! There is a package of Oreos in the kitchen, I'm not eating them. There are Starburst candies across from my desk, I'm not eating them.

I will not let my emotions get the best of me this time. The last two weeks I struggled with eating due to emotions, first stress, then excitement! This time, I'm not doing it! If I succumb to my emotions, then I let these people win and get the best of me!

And so, by posting it on my blog, that means it is so! :P

And I'm sorry, but I still like my post from yesterday with the big eye staring you down! That eyeball is watching me too and frankly, I'm scared! lol.

Oh! I forgot the best news! I lost 3.4 lbs last Saturday. Now, that was a fluke. In fact, I expected to gain and didn't want to go to the meeting, or at least weigh in. I don't have to weigh in every week since I'm a lifetime member.

But I hate playing those games! And I weighed myself at home prior to the meeting and it looked as though I was going to lose. My body is so weird!

Now I'm 158 lbs. Never in my adult life have I been 158 lbs (or close to it even!). But I think I want to try for a new weight goal. I think I would like to lose a few more pounds. I'm shooting for 150 but I would settle for 155 or 153 if that felt better to me.

I'm not in a hurry. I'm more looking towards toning up a little bit. But if the few extra pounds decide to drop in the meantime, I would welcome it!

Did you guys have a great weekend?


  1. congrats on your loss!

  2. Don't let those stinkin' Oreos get you, Amanda! You are doing great!

  3. Sounds like a great plan!

  4. Great Loss! I would take the bag of oreos and throw in the trash. Not the kitchen trash (you will be tempted to dig them back out). Next time you get gas, drop them in the trash container and drive away. That is power! Keep up the good work.

    I am right there with you at 158. Good luck and have a great weekend.

    PS. We do have to make sure we stay away from Kelly's burgers.
