Resting on my laurels!

Yes, folks, that's what I've been doing. I am ashamed to admit it, but the past successes have made me a tad bit cocky! I've been overconfidant and thought I had this whole thing figured out.

I've been exercising regularly and my NSV's were abundant. But I have been way lax in tracking my food.

I'd track my breakfast in the morning, and at noon, when I sit down at the computer to track, I struggle to remember what and how much I snacked on and my meals are hard to track, too! Lots of math! And the calorie charts are not South America friendly and not all our store bought products have the nutritional information on it.

Some things I think I'll remember but then forget, or I'll just estimate the calories and not be real sure, so I just don't even track, or I'll just think, it wasn't that many calories and blah, blah, blah.

So I just haven't been tracking lately.

Yup, resting on my laurels does not help with the weight loss, friends.

So, here I go again, tracking what I eat.

If you snack it, track it!

So, I had been wanting to tell you about my exodus. From morbid obesity, that is! But, not today. Hopefully next week.

So, a slight gain, slightly humbled and hopefully a little wiser, too.

Last Week: 255.9 lbs
This Week: 256.3lbs
That's a 0.4 lbs gain

Not so much, but eye-opening!

And here's a little something to smile about!
My youngest had some favorite stuffed toys.and just really thought they'd look great in these jars! He is a funny little guy!

Hoipe you all have a great week!


  1. I love the "Snack it, track it" saying. Hang in there ... tracking is a big challenge for me, but I know that I'm successful when I do. It's a New Day, my friend!

  2. Love your post! I'm so proud of your achiements so far, and I know you will succede! I loce the canned bears! Give him a hug from, Finnegan!

  3. what a cutie he is! And yes, the dangers of snacking I know of all too well. I'm on my way down to see Leslie Sansone as soon as I finish typing this so that I can 'pay' for last night's dinner.
    Hang in there, Casey. You're doing a wonderful job!

  4. Kids are funny, aren't they? :)

    We all struggle once in a while- tracking is so helpful though. You'll be just fine! :)

  5. It is hard to track. I make most of our food from scratch so it's hard to track and figure out all the calories. I hate guessimating but sometimes close has to could so I add some calories when I'm not sure.
    Thanks for stopping by. Keep up the great work. God Bless!!!

  6. love reading your blog.
    so proud that you keep on keeping on!
    I'll be back to see you again soon.
    Animo! :o)
