I have a weight loss announcement. My scale read 245.2 Friday morning. That's a whopping 1lb weight loss this week. HAPPY DANCE TIME. It has felt like forever since I've been able to say I've lost weight.

What did I do to make this happen? Had shakes for breakfast and a few for lunch. I'm having a hard time drinking them at school still. It's seeing all of that food around me. Also I was really, really hungry later on in the day. When I stay at school late I push back dinner time and then I eat everything in sight once I get home. I'll figure it out.

I also tracked everything I put in my mouth on My Fitness Pal. Love it! It's not working tonight though. I'm miffed. Tracking and sharing my tracking with others makes me feel empowered. If I share my food diary for the day I don't want to look like I'm Jabba the Hut.

One more thing led to my success- stairs. My new school has stairs and I am located on the second floor. I refuse to use the elevator (unless I am carrying something very heavy. Then I may decide to use it). I walk up and down the stairs at least 7 times. I'm getting a bit better. Not as winded anymore. It's amazing what a week will change.

And just because I'm nuts, I do believe I will start the Jillian Micheal 30 Day Shred. All my ladies on the awesome FB group I am part of are cheering me on.

Time to find my sleepy place. Last Sunday I didn't sleep at all and it ruined me for the rest of the week. People forget that lack of sleep with mess up your weight loss goals. It's not healthy either.

Sweet dreams my lovelies!
