Lotts checking up to do

I've got calorie counts for the last 2 weeks, plus last week's checkin and an early one for this week, since we're going out of town tonight.

9/16 1305
9/17 1058
9/18 1235
9/19 1177
9/20 1054
9/21 1022
9/22 1228
9/23 905
9/24 994

Last week's weigh in put me down 2 more pounds, making total lost 44. Today's had me down another 2 pounds, for a total of 46 pounds lost. This means I have 4 more pounds to go before I hit my 2003 goal of 50 pounds lost!

Last week I had lost 0.5 inches from my chest, hips, and thigh. There was no change this week.

Ok... Friday was a weird day because I ended up taking a long nap before I actually managed to eat anything. Both girls were up the night before and ended up in bed with us, so I got no sleep. Anyway, when I weighed myself after my nap, I was 1.5 lbs down from in the morning. I went ahead and took the morning weight so that I had some wiggle room.

Friday: -1.5 lbs for the week, 42 pounds lost in total

Inches lost: half an inch from my chest.

Bonus nut: went to Old Navy and bought clothes. I ended up with mens' shorts, since all the womens' shorts were low-rise (ugh) and the longest length is 5 inches (double ugh). I need coverage, people, not exposure! The shirts fit ok, although they're cap sleeves and I felt a little goofy. It paid off when we went to Houston for my daughter's birthday and all of my husband's family was bowled over by my weight loss. His dad poked me in the stomach all weekend, the booger.

8 more pounds to go until I hit my 2003 goal! (Actually 6.5, since I lost weight since Friday. Hoo!)

I was saving up to eat a piece of chocolate cake on Sunday, but it turned out that it had less calories than I thought!

Checking my measurements, looks like I can start shopping at Old Navy and kiss all those overpriced plus size stores a fond farewell. Woo!

Somehow I managed to lose 2.5 pounds since last Friday, even though I spent most of the week weighing more than Friday's check-in! So I'm now at a grand total of 40.5 pounds lost, and I've met my second goal. My next goal is in 9.5 more pounds, when I'll have lost 50.

In actuality, my highest weight was 8 pounds above my diet-start weight. Last year I weighed more before I started going to the gym, lost 15 pounds, had those surgeries and gained back 7, then started the diet.

Yes, I need to get back to the gym! I've been having so many migraines lately that I'm either in the midst of one, or I'm recovering from one and afraid I'll set it off again.

Inches lost:
Chest: -0 (-6 total) (hub is upset because boobs are shrinking, too)
Waist: -0.5 (-7.5 total)
Hips: -0.5 (-7.5 total)
Thigh: -0 (-4 total)

Total inches lost: 25, which is more than the circumference of my thigh! Wow!
