The good, the bad, and the ugly

217.6 (sigh)

Well, today's weight wasn't the worst one I've seen recently--I was 219.2 just a few weeks ago on July 14th--BUT it is more than a little depressing to see that I am slightly above where I was on June 1st, the last time I started South Beach (217). Oh well.

I have no one to blame but myself (and bad genes, lol), and I can only move forward, so that's what I'm going to do. Starting (again, for the gazillionth time) today.

My plan for today:
*Breakfast: eggs, coffee
*Lunch: low-carb Lean Cuisine entree and supplemental frozen veggies
*Dinner: frozen fish and more veggies
*Snacks: lowfat colby-jack cheese, shelled cashews
*Gym: 30 minutes on elliptical trainer (I am holding off on weights until I get a diagnosis of my right arm. MRI tomorrow.)

And because the overall tone of my post is not as positive as it should be for a lovely Monday morning, three things for which I am grateful:
(1) MM took my rings to the jeweler to be cleaned and polished yesterday, and they look fabulous! Like new! I didn't realize how dulled they had become until I saw them after their trip to the jeweler. My husband rocks!
(2) I was able to watch THREE movies this weekend: The Reader (which I've been wanting to see but had to wait for the right frame of mind), Fargo (which MM and I had both seen, but not for years), and Baby Mama (which is usually good for a laugh for me). I love DVDs!
(3) I have several AWESOME friends who are doing this weight loss challenge with me! I hope that the added support will lead to greater success for us all!

All hail the Challenge Organizer! Again, thank you so much for doing this - I really aprpeciate it! I feel so much better knowing that I can look to others for support.

I feel so lucky that the 14 pounds that I lost during the whole Riley/Murphy debacle has stayed off. I was at my highest weight only two months ago!
