Weigh-in & Single Parenting...

Today's weigh in was 273.8!  That is a 1.6 pound weight loss, which is not too shabby considering it was a holiday and I'm on vacation.

I'm pretty sure that lack of sleep is showing on my weight loss.  Hanna has gotten worse at sleeping day by day since we've been in Utah.  Last night in the middle of the night she decided she didn't want to sleep from 1:30 to 4:30.  I am so thankful for the time that I've been able to spend with family, but I am excited to get home next week so that I can get back on schedule and really focus on my goals.  I AM SO CLOSE TO 10 POUNDS....ARGH!

Now its honesty time.  I totally broke down this morning after my weigh in.  I think the last week and a half of no sleep and not seeing my husband all came crashing around me and I sat in the bathroom and had a pity party for myself.  I hate crying, and it was like the ugly crying where I couldn't even look at myself in the mirror because I probably would have started laughing from the ugliness of it.  How ironic.

Anyway, I had to give myself a little pep talk so that I could make it through the day I talked to my hub's and begged him to come on Thursday so that I could have a break from single parenting.  Shockingly, he told me that he was already planning on coming down and that he was going to surprise me, but of course I am pretty much losing it right now so I wasn't taking "no" for an answer.  He can never surprise me because I pester him so much he finally just tells me to get me off his back.

My mood has instantly changed since I got this bit of information and Thursday night can't come fast enough.  Pray that my Hanna sleeps tonight and I can get a decent nights sleep.  Fingers crossed.

When is the last time you had a good cry?
Today, and before that it was right after I had Hanna......stupid hormones.

What instantly puts you in a good mood?
My Husband & Ice Cream (frozen yogurt these days).


  1. mmm... frozen yogurt would put me in a good mood too! good job on keeping up the weight loss with the holiday! really that is harder to do that we give ourselves credit for. keep up the great work!

  2. 1.6 pounds while on vacation and over a holiday weekend is great! I have been nervous to get on the scale this week - eek!

    I give so much credit to single parents. I don't know how they do it. My husband is wonderful and we truly do parent 50/50. It's hard when he is not there to tag-team the parental duties, so I feel for you right now!

    I haven't cried since right after my daughter was born too. You are so right, those hormones are crazy.

    The sound of my daughter's giggle cheers me up everytime! :)

    Keep up the great work!

  3. I can't believe I forgot my little girls giggles! Thanks for the reminder Jade!
