Checking in

Not too much going on here. Toe is still broken (duh) but is starting to feel better, and the swelling has gone down considerably. So I went back to the gym today and did 4 miles on the elliptical. Other than my feet going numb after about 20 minutes it was all good!

As for food, nothing exciting there either. I'm still trying to shake off 2 more pounds to get back down to 116. Trying to figure out an "ideal" weight is not an easy task. 110 was definitely too small- I looked malnourished and my face was kinda sunken in, if that makes any sense. On the other hand, I felt too heavy at 120. If it makes any difference I'm 5'4 and small-boned.

So anyways, about those 2 pounds... I've decided to join in Allan's latest challenge, which starts on May 1st. The challenge is to take a picture of everything that goes in your mouth, BEFORE it goes in your mouth. I'm thinking that having to snap a picture of those late afternoon Nutter Butters or before bedtime spoonful of peanut butter with chocolate chips will stop me from doing it! I already know what you're thinking. I could still eat the crap and just not take a picture. But if you know me and any of my history, when I commit to something, I commit 100%. If I decide to have a Reese's (or any other kind of crap) you will see a picture of it! Alrighty then. Anyone else up for this? CLICK HERE for more information.

Have a great day :)

I admire you for hitting the gym despite that toe, and for joining Allan's challenge! I'm still on the fence..hmm...

Just a few lbs really *does* make a difference in how one looks/feels when one is at their correct weight range. In my fat days, a ten pound swing in either direction really made no difference. Now that I'm where I'm supposed to be, I can feel three or four pounds up or down without even getting on the scale.

@Michele- thanks! You should definitely join in!

@Norma- I totally agree. I get all kinds of grief when I complain about a pound or two, but it really makes a huge difference at this size. Oh well. Haterz gonna hate ;)
