My quest at finally shedding 100 pounds or more. Good days or bad, weight up or down, exercised or not, I want to blog about it to for the next 12-20 months. Why the next 20 months. I figure if I lose 5 pounds a month, it will take me 20 months. I'm hoping by doing this, not only will it hold me more accountable, but will help me figure out what triggers my downfalls.

SURVIVAL GUIDE NEEDED
I have had a so-so week. Most days were okay but this past weekend was a disaster. I went out to eat with my mom & extended family to celebrate Mother's Day early. I had 3 slices of the most delicious warm bread with butter on it. The rest of the meal wasn't bad, fish & a couple bites of my baked potato. I forgot I also had about 2 tablespoons of blue cheese dressing over my salad. Just because the warm bread evidently wasn't even of a cheat, I stopped by the DQ and had some chocolate ice cream, covered in chocolate & nuts. The next day I had a baby shower to go to for my niece. My meal consisted of a slice of a submarine sandwich, potato salad, taco salad & not one but two pieces of Texas Sheet Cake. Needless to say, I woke up Monday morning with an extra 2 1/2 pounds on my body. So far this week, I've been back on track. I lost what I gained plus one more pound. I'm hoping to have another 1 pound off before the end of the week. I'm thinking I need a survival guide to get me through the weekends. This next weekend starts out going out to a celebration dinner at my favorite restaurant in the the world "Luckys" and having my son home for a visit for the week (can't wait to see him). I am going to be in need of prayer and will power. I'll let you know how I do.
