New TOPS chapter!

So last night was the open house for the new chapter. Our state coordinator was driving ALL THE WAY across the state to be there for me. I was worried that she would drive all that way and no one would show up and it would all be in vain. However, we had TWELVE people attend and we were granted chapter status!

Not everyone in attendance joined. I think some may join later, after their payday. Anyway, we are a chapter of 8! I just can't tell you how glad I am that it all went well.

There were 3-4 people from my church who were all stressing about me knowing how much they weigh. They kept acting like they each weighed so much more than each other. And of course I won't dare tell what they weighed but what was hillarious was those 3 or 4 people who thought they were absolutely the heaviest, weighed within 4 pounds of each other. LOL They were all about the same weight. It's crazy what our minds can tell us---and how we beat ourselves down.

You know last week I was thrilled because the wii showed that I weigh under 300? Well, I still don't have it on official TOPS scales. I weighed 300.5 pounds last night. But soon! Very soon, it will be officially under 300.

Have a great day all!

I'm under 300!!!!!!!!!

You should open this link and listen to this song while you read this post. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XY2yudW5n4 It's my favorite song of the day :)

Well....my highest weight ever was 331, right before I joined TOPS.

I was down to 327.25 when I joined.

Prior to that, I had spent most of my 9 years living in Alabama at 278.

I lost down to 250 one year for my anniversary.

I was about 220 when I married, at age 18, 14 years ago.

ANYWAY>>>>>>>>>>>>> I was exactly 300 when I went into LABOR with BOTH kids, so I've always felt like that was the weight that my body said "Whoa!" LOL

And this evening, I weighed 298 on the wii!!!! Now, just do that on OFFICIAL scales!

Speaking of, my TOPS state coordinator is planning to come down a week from Monday to help me have a Open House for our new chapter. And she has scales she will let us use, so we don't have to worry about that! yay! It is coming together!

The burnt tongue diet

Three days ago, I severly burnt my tongue on some hot cocoa. For 2 days, everything had the taste and feel of sandpaper, and I had no problem staying WAY under calorie range. However, all good things come to an end and I can now taste again.

There's nothing to report, really. I have been exercising and staying under calorie limit, so I expect the scales to keep going down as long as I DON'T QUIT!

Weigh in is Tuesday. Tuesdays just don't come around as quickly as I'd like. I love going to TOPS.

skinny me. (& weigh in for week 2)

LOL What a title. But that is how I felt yesterday. I was wearing my favorite skirt, new shoes & a new blouse. I blow dried my hair. I was feeling cute. I got several compliments - that was nice.

I am happy.

A certain someone has been giving me a lot of attention lately. Perhaps it is just in my head. It's not going to go anywhere anyway. I am happily married. However, it does make me feel ________. I'm not sure what word goes there. Like a teenager, perhaps? Young. I think it makes me feel young. Don't worry. It is NOT going anywhere.

I am happy.

And..................I lost 3 pounds this week! I was the best loser at TOPS.

I am happy.

I walked almost 3 miles yesterday and was way under my calorie limit.

I am happy.
