catching up

I got busy and haven't been online much. Also, my laptop is in the shop, which means my husband and I have to share one computer. Luckily, all my dissertation data was backed up multiple times and I've verified that it is okay.

Thanks for all the comments on the swimsuit. I didn't actually end up wearing it yet. The weather has been too chilly for swimming, so I can't tell you how the suit did. I am still happy that I bought it, even though it will have to wait a little longer to make its debut.

I have attended two parties in two days, and I overdid it at both. I'm a little nervous about weigh-in this week. I had such a good loss last week and I'm afraid this time around I've set myself up for a gain. I haven't cracked the Beck book in three or four days. I think I'm going to pick back up where I left off, rather than trying to skip ahead.

I got a lot of compliments on my weight loss today, even though I've only lost 5-10 pounds at most since most of the people had seen me. I don't know if it was just the clothes I was wearing or if I really do look different. It was nice to hear, anyway.

I'm going to weigh in tomorrow instead of Tuesday, because my husband and I are going to both take a day off work next week and do a little daytripping. I'll report back after the meeting and let you all know how I did.


  1. Even if your weigh in is not as good this week, you will have a better one next week. You are on your way. I have had people notice my weight loss at the oddest times, sometimes even when I have gained a couple of pounds. Maybe it is what I am wearing or maybe they just finally have a chance to get a good look at me. but, those last five or so pounds make a big difference, especially coming off of an already smaller you. If you know what I mean. The five pounds is a bigger percentage of you.
