Finding Me Mondays: Some weeks test your strength, wits, and definitely ability to not turn to food!

Sometimes you wonder really how much more you can take in a day or a week, and I'm sure is there is plenty more that could go wrong, but I think for running a fever of 101 still (after multiple days higher), diagnosis of a respiratory infection, fire department responding to your house because every alarm went off continuously for 15 minutes and wouldn't reset (oh, yeah....that was fun!  We had to call, but let me tell you it's never fun spending two hours trying to determine that everything is actually okay, there's just some faulty much for buying a new home...ugh!) eating your dinner that night, and the cat barfing on your was a day to test my strength since the smoke detectors going off throughout the house truly scared my boys and the pets as evidenced by the dog eating my dinner off the table and the cat barfing on the was a good night! 

Guessing with being sick, I was too tired to do anything else, so I just went to bed and was actually good about food this past week so no weight gain but with a respiratory infection (and I already have asthma and a heart condition)...well starting more exercise is completely out of the question right now!  I'm happy with no weight gain, but would have been happier with a little loss with all the think you'd get some benefit from coughing continuously for hours at a time!  I can say I am definitely looking forward to my spa afternoon at Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine this afternoon (will write more about that soon)....a massage and pedicure is gonna make this girl motivated again!

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/25th & November 1st/8th/15th - 192 lbs
November 22nd/29th/Dec. 6/13  - 194 lbs
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 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!

Join me in the journey of finding yourself, whether it's weight loss or something else! We could all use some support! I'd love to hear your stories!

I thought I had a bad week. I had chills, a fever, body aches and loss of appetite. After 2 days, my appetite came back. I was hungry with a capital h. I thought maybe being sick I could lose a little weight but it didn't work that way. I hope you're feeling better. You deserve some pampering.
