Back in the saddle

I didn't track all week.  Boooooo.  It is so hard for me to get back on my game after I come home, it happens every time.  I'm tracking again today though, finally.

I ate less than I had while I was away, and I tried my best to keep a mental log of my food intake the last couple days of my WW week.  I know I was bloated and irregular from eating poorly and lack of exercise during my time on vacation, and probably retaining water from traveling, so with those two problems resolved once I got home, I had a good week for weight loss despite my lack of tracking.

Weigh in:  Saturday, 5/21/11 - 214.4 - 4 lbs lost, 35.8 total

I achieved my personal goal - coming back to my home meeting at the same weight or less as I was when I left.  (3.2 lbs less to be exact.)  This makes me slightly suspicious that the scale at my 'away' meeting was a bit off, but that's to be expected.

If you've been following along for a few entries, you'll also notice that I met my short-term goal of losing 35 lbs by June 1!!!  WOOT.

I do feel my motivation waning a bit, so I think I'll do something like that again:  50 lbs by August 6!  I'd say Aug. 1 but I'd rather put my goal date on a weigh in day.

I'm also *very* close to reaching my biggest weight loss to date.  I've mentioned this before - in July '09, I got down to 212.8.  When I surpass that I'll have lost 15% of my body weight, and be the lightest I've been in at least 4 years.  I'm on my way!
