Skipping along ...

So this week has been a bit of a roller coaster.  The week started out well enough, and then kinda leveled off.  Yesterday, however, after being just another day for most of the day, I spent the time after school getting some stuff done.  Got some laundry done, went shopping and picked up a couple great shirts on clearance at Kohls, I even treated myself to a pedicure.
This morning, I woke up a half hour ahead of my alarm, and I got some laundry switched around, and if I get the stuff out of the dryer, I may be able to wear one of my new shirts today.  I know, I know, this sounds kinda lame, but I take the little joys when I can get them.
So on the weight loss front, I haven't really been trying that hard, to be honest.  My big downfall was and still is eating out.  So, I am thinking that I can shift gears on that.  I have in the past, been taking soup to work for lunch.  A can of soup like Progresso or a similar soup is under 300 calories for the can.  I may make it a normal part of my diet.  I need to ratchet up my water intake, and hopefully get my weight under control.
My doctor always tells me that HEALTHY weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week.  If you have a random big loss, don't get freaked out by a rebound and radically change anything, just be steady and you will eventually lose weight.  So this week, I am up, but after a seven pound loss over the previous week, I am not so worried. My weigh in this morning was 275.4, which is up 4, but still down 3 from two weeks ago.  My short term goal is to break through the 270 barrier I have been hitting, and by gum, I am gonna do it this time!
