Finding Me Mondays: Some weeks are easier to lose weight but for the wrong reasons...

Some weeks you lose weight when you aren't trying so I hope it doesn't come back! Without going into all the details, this week has been a little rough and I've lost weight because of it! Not being able to eat much more than crackers kind of does that to you and I'm definitely ready to start feeling better, but at least the weight loss is a benefit of not feeling great for at least the time being!  Early in the week, we spent a lot of time outside working on the yard and playing with the kids!  It was a lot of fun and with the lower temps, my heart was feeling much better!
Monday, June 21st: 203.5 lbs, Size 14
Monday, June 28th: 200.0 lbs, Size 14
Monday, July 5th: 196.5 lbs, Size 14
Monday, July 12th: 196.5 lbs, Size 14
Monday, July 19th: No scale available, Size 14
Monday, July 26th: 198.5 lbs, Size 14
Monday, August 2nd: 197 lbs, Size 14
Monday, August 9th: 196.5 lbs, Size 14
Monday, August 16th: 196 lbs, Size 14 (at least it's down 0.5 lbs)
Monday, August 23rd: 196 lbs, Size 14 (no change and bummed but not surprised)
Monday, August 30th:  196 lbs, Size 14 (no change - excited that it stayed the same)
Monday, September 6th: 193.5 lbs, Size 14 (only dropped because from Wednesday night on I was barely able to eat but I'll take any weight loss!!)

The temperature is finally starting to drop below 100 degrees in the evenings, so we should be able to get out for some bike rides and family walks this week (assuming I start feeling better)! I can't wait! I've also got healthy meals planned for dinner each night and the kids are excited too! My 4-year old has been donning his apron each night to help mommy cook!

Regardless of my current weight, my heart, and how I feel right now, I am still hoping that by next June, I will still be able to reach my goal of being able to keep up with my kids and husband and wear the red dress that hangs prominently in my closest (it blocks all my pants) so I have to look at it every will continue to be my motivation - even if this week I didn't feel like doing much of anything that I had planned last week!

Join me in the journey of finding yourself, whether it's weight loss or something else by linking up below! We could all use some support!
