Kathy Week 37: I am STILL the tortoise

Kathy's Week 37 Stats:
Last Week's Weight: 131
Today's Weight: 128
Starting Weight: 151
Total Weight Loss: 23 pounds

Slow but steady... 

I'm ok with a weight of 128 this week. It's within one pound of my goal weight, 127, and I know that it's normal to have a 1-2 pound fluctuation up and down. 

School started this week, so I was back to work. 

Good news: back to work means structured eating--away from the home fridge--during the day.
Bad news: I'm tired when I get home, and I have a tendency to go all snack-o-mania in the late afternoon / evening.

I really need to get back into my school schedule of earlier bedtime. Staying up until 10:30 pm two nights in a row made me draggy on Thursday and Friday afternoons.

Research backs me up! Two good articles - one here and another here - explain the hormones that come into play when we don't get enough sleep. We really do tend to gain more weight during those times.

Have a great week, everyone, and be sure to get to bed early!

So I've been really terrible about checking in. You're doing great, though, Mom! Where is this weeks update?

Maybe I'll actually get a post up sometime this week. :)

We'd love to hear from you!
