Seriously? and The Truth

So, today was weigh-in day. 3 more pounds down for a total of 21. Maybe I'm getting somewhere. I entered my "new weight" into my iphone app that tracks calories and sets a specific calorie goal for me. It's pretty neat, it tell me the calories to eat to lose 2lbs per week and keeps track of how long it should take to get there. Problem is, I entered my new weight and it dropped my calorie allowance?!?!?! SERIOUSLY?

Ok, I know this makes total sense physiologically, but ick. This was my problem with weight watchers, when you lose weight the reward is you get to eat less! What?! :) I say this jokingly, because I totally get it, I do. This doesn't mean I'm happy about it, though.

So, I realized I didn't reveal my "truth" from the blog award post. The truth is that I once had to skip a European border. One my graduation trip my mom and I visited 6 countries in 18 days. In Italy, we lost the paperwork that we needed to get back across the border. So, we had to wait until lunch time when there weren't a lot of guards and make it across the border :) It really wasn't that dramatic, but it sounded good.

Happy Blogging, everyone!


  1. HaHaHa I never thought of it that way.. Your reward is to eat less. Doh!!!
    congrats on your Weight loss .. Keep on keeping on girl....

  2. Congratulations on the weight loss! You are doing great. One good thing about losing those pounds is you have more energy to do other things!

  3. Good for you! Losing all that weight will make it easier the next time you need to make a border sprint!

  4. hee hee....that is like when I used to go to the gym with a girl from work, she used to get so ticked at me because we would both do the treadmill for 30 minutes, and she'd go twice the speed and burn half the calories. I couldn't get it through her head that it took a lot of calories to haul around the extra 75 pounds on my a$$ compared to her skinny butt!
    Congrats on the loss just the same ; )

  5. Great job on the weight loss. Oh...I hate when "they" steal calories. That is so annoying!! Reward me...give me an extra Hershey kiss....yeah right in my dreams.

    Awesome on your 21 pounds.... :)
