Did You Hear That Whoop This Morning?!?

I finally weighed myself - haven't done that since around Thanksgiving - and I am at an all-time low! Oh happy day!!! I'm sure you must be wondering why on earth I've gone so long between weigh-ins. Well, I don't own a scale, so I weigh on my Wii Fit. Which is connected to the TV in my family room. Which, for the past month, has been taken over by my kids who are home from college. Yeah, there was no way I was going to get on that and have my weight broadcast for all to see - it's one thing for my family to see my need for them to know the actual horrifying numbers!

Interesting tidbits about this whole "Eating Season" and how I did:
  1. I had a spell of about 3 weeks where I was overeating most days;
  2. I ate fudge, "Texas Trash" (think white chocolate-coated Chex Mix), pumpkin bread and Christmas cookies to excess - it seemed like the more I ate these sugary foods, the more I wanted them;
  3. I actually got sick of how I felt every time I ate that much sugar, and stopped indulging - ok, it took a lot of "feeling sick" before I finally stopped, but the point is that I eventually listened to my body;
  4. I was able to get back on track with my eating - obviously, as I know that I had gained a few, so I lost that and some "fresh pounds" as well.
Onward and downward!


  1. Aint' it the ever-lovin' truth about how sugar can make us feel? I ate a handful of white chocolate coated pretzels today, and I thought my teeth were going to rot out of my head. Not worth it! Way to go on the wt.loss!

  2. I was wondering where that WHOOP came from this morning. Now I do.

    WAY TO GO!!

  3. Whoop whoop whoop!!! (I'm doing that with my best arm whippin' motion). Way to go, Shelley!! And you know how I feel about s-word. Man, screws me up all the time. Loved the description of the Wii! No, I'm pretty sure I don't want my number broadcast all over the TV screen *giggle*

  4. Congrats on the weight loss! Glad to hear you got the "Eating Season" out of your system. I'm still trying to shake the sugar. :)
