Well it was a weird week!  I had another big week.  I lost 7.6lbs this week again. I am down to 264.8lbs.  and have lost 92.2lbs. For some reason I don't feel good about this week.  I feel I cheated a lot this week.  I went out to eat several times this week.  I stuck to what I could have but I just felt like it wasn't going to be that good of week.  Well it was so I guess I should be great full for how it worked out.  I guess it just goes to show me that I can go out and eat with friends and stay true to the diet.  I am learning that you can ask for your order to be "special." In the past I would order what was on the menu and eat it how ever it came out even if it was wrong.  Now I will ask for them to hold the potatoes and and extra broccoli. The good news is I am now smaller then I ever remember being in High School.  That is an amazing feeling.  I have moved down 14 notches on my belt and ready to add another hole. Here are some photo updates.

 In the top photo I weighed 357 and the shorts I was wearing were size 50 and as you can see didn't quite fit.   The lower photo I weighed 272.4 and the jeans I am wearing are size 42.

Once again In the top photo I weighed 357 and the shorts I was wearing were size 50 and as you can see didn't quite fit.   The lower photo I weighed 272.4 and the jeans I am wearing are size 42.
 I have just a little over a month before I head home for Christmas and see my friends and family.  I am really excited to fly this time because I will actually fit in my own seat and not have to share the person's  next to me.  I am also excited to see my grandma for her 80th birthday on Christmas day She saw me at the end of September and hasn't seen photo's since so it will be a surprise to her.

So it was a great week.  7.6lbs this week!  bringing me down to 272.4lbs.  and 84.4 lbs lost! What is really cool is the scanner that tells you your lean mass (how much your muscle and bones all weigh)  I gained 2lbs of muscle this week and lost 7.6lbs of fat. I couldn't believe it.  That is the third highest weight loss week after my first two weeks of the diet.   I wanna thank my mother for my early Christmas present which I feel is very much responsible for the great results this week.  The camelbak!  She bought me the 2L one or 70 oz bag.  I drink 4 of those a day plus at meals I drink water as well.  The only down fall is the constantly having to go to the bathroom.  I went to a movie the other day and during the 1hr and 45 min movie I had to get up and go to the bathroom 3 times.   It has to be the water because that is the only thing that I have started doing different.  I also found an app on my droid that I can set it up and it will remind me through out the day to drink water.  That has come in pretty handy when ever I get busy and lose track of my drinking.  I am only 7.4 lbs away from being the same weight when I was my lightest in High School.  and only 15.6 lbs from breaking past the 100 lb mark.  I have new pictures I will hopefully post in the next couple of days.

So close to being out of the 280's but I didn't make it.  I was exactly 280 today.  I lost 4.6lbs this week for a total of 77lbs so far.  I can't tell if it is getting easier or harder.  It is just a lot of work to make the right choices. I am trying to keep myself busy because that makes it much easier.  If I am busy I am not by myself thinking about how hungry I am.  My wonderful mother purchased me a Camelbak for an early Christmas present.  Which has been great!  It looks kind of goofy walking around with a water bag on my back all the time but it makes drinking water a lot easier. It will be 3 months on the 10th.  That is crazy!!  I realized I am not going to make my goal by Thanksgiving so I have decided that I am going to change my goal.  I want to be out of the 270's by Thanksgiving.  I have decided that I am not going to be able make it through the winter with the coats that I have.  They are all to big.  So I am going to have to go buy a coat to get me through this "middle section" of my diet.

So it has been two weeks since my last post.  I was having some trouble last week.  I lost a lot of motivation I felt like I was following the diet very closely but I also was very busy at work.  But oh well that is behind me.  Last week I only lost 1.8 lbs dropping me down to 289.6 lbs.  This week was much better.  I was very strict on myself and felt that I had to get back on track with motivation.  I lost 5lbs this week putting me at 284.6 lbs.  It was a great week.  I switched up my protein packets and that helped  so much.  It was nice because I felt I fell in a rut and I couldn't get out of it.  So by switching it up I felt like I was more motivated to make sure I was eating everything I was supposed to.  Thank you to everyone that was very supportive this last two weeks and helped me get through the rough times.  As of today I am down 72.4 lbs. in 84 days.
