How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

Day 4, ... I got nothin'

Apparently the answer to my question yesterday was "Not for long" since I couldn't come up with anything fun that rhymed with 4 for my post title. Ha!

However, it is another good day here in challenge land! I weighed twice this morning because I couldn't believe the scale. It read 184.8. Seriously. No joke. And while I had an on target deficit yesterday, I didn't meet most of my goals. I just made up for it with my food choices. Without further ado, here are the numbers:

Weight: 184.8
Burned: 1918 (332 short of goal)
Consumed: 1127
Deficit: 791
Steps: 2666 (1334 short of goal)
Activity: 18 minutes (12 minutes short of goal)

Now you see why I weighed twice this morning. Sometimes the numbers just don't add up! But whatever, as long as they are going in the right direction I'm not going to over analyze anything.

I also am not going to try and make excuses for not making my calories burned, steps and activity goals yesterday. It is what it is. I did do laundry last night as I said I would, and as my maid is cleaning the house today I spent a lot of time picking things up and straightening so she could focus on the actual cleaning. And even with those things I came up short. But that's life sometimes! Right?!

Thanks so much to everyone for the encouragement! It means so much to me to read your comments. I laugh. I cry. OK, well maybe I don't cry ... unless it is from laughing so much :) But seriously, I can't thank y'all enough.

Make it a great day!

p.s. Go check in with Beth and make sure she is keeping up her end of the challenge!!
