You have no idea the relief I felt when I stepped on the scale and I was only up by .4 pounds.  I didn't have a binge weekend, but I needed ot let go for sanity sake and I didn't track and didn't always make the best choices. 

As of yesterday I have been on track and feel confident I can remain so.

My stress level is thru the roof and I am very much not okay, but I am taking it day by day.  All I can say here is that sometimes it is hard to determine whether the right path and the path that 'feels' right are the same. 

On a happier note, I have a updated picture!!

May 19, 2012 40.2 pounds lost

I know this isn't your standard update picture, but I realized this is the first picture of me I have seen at my 40 pounds lost mark.  I must say I look GOOD!! Its hilarious cause all I have been complaining about the past few weeks is how much my boobs have shrunk but after seeing this picture I don't feel I have to worry about it. HAHA

If you are curious as to what I am doing in the image, I am sanding pegs.  About 6 months ago, I came across a picture of a battleship drinking game board. I have begging my building abled friend to build it for me and in hopes of cheering me up he started it this week. Here are some pictures so far:

My little sister spray painting some pegs Purple.  The colors we chose are Black, Pink and Purple

My friend got the power tools out for this one. I even used a few, I feel all powerful.
To protect the pool table this will sit on, we purchased fabric be stapled to the bottom. To save money we went to the clearance rack. This puppy will be sporting bright pink fleece with the bright smiling face of Glinda the Good Witch. 
The irony of this whole project is I don't drink or party that much. Who has the time with 5 kids. But it will get plenty of use at his house so I am not worried. I just get dips on first game every time I come.
