Finding Me Mondays...one pound heavier but finally feeling ready to take control!

For the first time when I visited my cardiologist, I was commended for losing weight without being able to exercise!  Yeah!  I guess that means that I am doing something right, and for the first time he acknowledged that being the villain in a game of superheroes in the front yard with a 2 & a 4 year-old is exercise in the life of a full-time working mom!  The temperatures are finally getting cooler, so once we replace the tubes in the tires of the kids' bike trailer and I get the clearance from my surgeon next week it will time for nightly bike rides!  I can't wait!

Although I am up a pound this week on the scale, I'm happy with that...I didn't eat that well this week because I was finally able to eat whatever I wanted without feeling terribly sick and it's been so long since I could do that....that's not to say that my stomach still didn't hurt on occassion, but I wasn't stomach cramping sick after eating this week so a few indulgences were in order!  It was only fair after so many weeks of bland food that for two weeks nearly consisted of only crackers and gatorade before and after surgery!  This week I am back to paying attention to what I eat...I have to if I want to meet my goals next summer (which seems to be getting here rather quickly)!

Since the list was getting long, I'm going to start posting a link to the long list and just include the previous week and this week's weigh-in every Monday!  (Long list June 21st (203.5 lbs) - September 13th (194 lbs))
Last weigh-in: September 13th/September 26th - 194lbs, Size 14
October 11th - 191 lbs
October 18th - 192 lbs (one pound up and totally okay with that!)
As I've said every week though, regardless of my current weight  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 day....it will continue to be my motivation!  I get tired of being the one behind the camera every time and am ready to be the one in front of the camera (smiling) more often!  I don't want my kids to wonder what I looked like when they were young!
