Hump Day Happenings

Happy hump day! Hope you all are doing well. I am feeling pretty darn good actually. Had a good day on the food front yesterday. I took Bogey to get his stitches out so I did not really have a lunch and then I had a crab tostada for dinner from La Paloma. I usually order it without the shell and did this time too but I got the shell. I should have just tossed it instead of eating it but calories were low for the day. Unfortunately, it does not agree with my tummy so it's been a little grumbly.

When I went to sleep last night, I brought Bogey and his bed to my bed and he actually stayed there until this morning when I got up to use the restroom. I was very impressed. We are truly getting to bond and I am in love. I have always been a dog person but this little rascal has really melted my heart. I am really glad that I read How to Think Like a Cat.  It tuned me in on how to promote positive and deter negative behaviors and saved me a lot of time. 

So my usual weigh day is Thursday but I got on the scale this morning and I am at 250 which is 3 lbs. down from last week. It was one of those double take moments. I had to stand on it like 3 times to actually believe it. I am beyond thrilled! I usually do not lose 3 lbs. in one week AND I am 2 lbs. away from my very lowest on this journey which was 248. I feel like I have been doing these same 5 lbs. over and over. The good news is I have maintained my 65 lb. loss and just bounced up and down the 250s forever which is not so great news. All in all, I am feeling a renewed motivation to kick it up a notch. Wish me luck! Until next time...


  1. Great job on the loss, and especially on the renewed motivation! :) Keep up the great work!!!

  2. Exciting weigh in - Katie, I would LOVE to see you break out of your 250ish range...I know you have it in you to do it (wow, look at this week for a great example!!!), and I bet you'd be so pleased to see some "new" weight lost. You can do it!!!

  3. Don't you love it when the scale tells you three times that you're not dreaming???? Yay Katie!!!

  4. That is awesome news Katie, new love, new motivation....on your way to a new you...congrats


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
