Dear Bathroom Scale--Part 2

I am writing this to let you know that I would like to clear the air between us. It seems that since my last weigh in, I said wrote some things that may not have been very nice about you. I just want to take the time to formally apologize. I know that it must have been very hurtful to hear read. I am sorry.

So, I understand why you--in turn--decided to retaliate by adding another pound to my weigh in on Monday. I have to first I was really upset. You obviously knew that it hurt the first time, and you still added that extra pound. It was spiteful to say the least. It has taken me a few days to get over it, but I do want you to know that I forgive you.

Now that we have cleared that up you can start moving in the right direction!

Thanks you for your understanding and forgiveness,

Dear Bathroom Scale,

I am writing to inform you that you are no longer my friend.  Not that you really have been for a long time anyway...but this morning made it official.
Do you know what I have been through the past week?  I had a horrifying stomach thing, and had two days of only eating saltines and pudding.  I have not been eating anything after dinner time, and only partaking in 100 calorie snacks in the afternoon at work, that is after my low calorie breakfast, and sensible--however not the greatest tasting--microwave lunches.  I have been trying hard.  I have not been eating candy or ice cream or all the things that got me to the state I am in right now.
And you, you just sit on the bathroom floor waiting to ruin my morning...and possibly my week for that matter. And quietly you just glare that nasty little (well actually not so little) red number at me.  And it was bigger!  I know that they say you don't lie, but I really feel deceived right now.  How could I have gained a pound???   
Well, now I am just going to have to get even more serious.  So, you, my unfriended bathroom scale--you better watch out.  Because this won't happen again!!!!

The Challenge starts today!

Justin and I weighed in last night (at more than we have ever weighed) and we are starting the diet today.
Let me tell was hard saying no to the freshly baked cookie someone brought into the office, but I did it.  Even as my neighbor (and close friend) made yummy noises while she devoured her creamy, warm, chocolate chip cookie, I stood my ground.  And I am proud of myself.
So, 20 lbs to go by June 6th (Justin's birthday).  I am kind of excited.J

Gussy Giveaway

So I am home sick for a second day in a row. This time yesterday I was just getting up for the day, so today I am thinking I feel a lot better since I have been up since 10 and am doing okay, but I am still not yet 100%.

I did feel good enough to check my blog, and I found a great giveaway on one of the wonderful blogs that I follow. Check it out here.

I also added the button for Gussy to my blog at the right.
