Well, it is that time again.. My hopes were up for an excellent weigh in.. as I took a sneak peak about 10 days ago. Drum roll, please! 389 lbs was what the scale read today. I think that it would have been higher had I been able to continue exercising everyday. My weightloss stalled during the week of catching the flu and then taking care of my children and their cases of the flu. So, today was my first trip out on the road :) For the month of December I am shooting for a minimum of at least 3.2K of walking a day. For weightloss.. well anything over 10 lbs and I will be happy :)

I decided that I need something new and yummy for dessert. I found a recipe for LC Peanut butter Cheese Cake. I figured that I could make something similair so I made some Almond butter..(burned up my Food Pro doing it though ;( ) and otherwise followed the recipe to the "T". I think it is really good and the kids love it, too.

I really hate the scale! I believe there is really nothing more scary than getting on that blasted weight estimating contraption. See, eleven days ago I had the mumps, couldn't hardly eat and ate the foods that I fed my children albeit in moderation. Yet, when I got on the scale I was back up to 412 pounds. I really wanted yell, scream and throw things! Why! I thought to myself. What to do, now? I thought to myself. I am going to fail. I am going to stall and never lose weight again. These and many other demons surfaced. But I sat down and collected my thoughts. I can't afford to give up or give in! I have to continue. What can I do to get back on the weightloss train?
I decuided to up my exercise and really control my intake of carbs. Did it work? I am through a plateau? I really hope so. The scale read 400 pounds even which is a 12.6 pound drop from about 10 days ago and around 8 pound for the month. I will continue to exercise and plan on adding weights into the regime. My goal for this month is 15 pounds. Will I make it? I don't know but I refuse to give up!
When I started this new lifestyle I was wearing 6XL shirts and size 66 pants(when I say "wearing" I mean I poured into those sizes. I am 6' 1" tall so I am guestimating 530pounds/ 240 kilograms.
