    Day 30
    Still discouraged with the scale, but dive a lot of activity. I know I'm carrying water weight, my feet are very swollen!
    Meal: steak, coleslaw and rice topped with an ice cream cone
    Exercise: tons of walking and house chores
    Feeling: exhausted

    Day 31:
    I already have 4 cups of water in. I plan on drinking much more today.
    Meal: sausage on a bun, coleslaw and tater tots.
    Exercise: just dance, walking and some yoga.
    Feeling: encouraged. I plan on making my goal this month and with 2 weeks to go, I'm cutting it close, but I will!

    I enjoy reading your daily report. The amount of exercise and work you do is inspiring.

    Day 32:
    Had a mid term exam today, so didn't get as much walking in this morning as I would have liked. It's ok. A loss of 2lbs this week. Still not reflective but I'll take it.
    Meal: lasagna and Caesar salad. It's splurge day so will probably have more.
    Exercise: copious amounts of walking. Just dance and yoga
    Feeling: blah. I'm exhausted, but we have a long weekend this weekend so 3 sweet days of sleeping in. 7-7:30am wake up is very sweet for someone who is up at 4:30 every day.

    Ok I think. It will be a couple of weeks before I get the results. And then just in time for my next exam. This one was weighted the least, so I'm not too worried about it. The next one though I have to be better prepared for.

    Two-lbs in a week is good IMO!

    Good luck dearest. I think you'll be an awesome psychologist!

    Day 33:
    Well my man is sick and my kids are full of "what can I do to piss off mom?" Moodiness.
    Meal: as long as it has one recognizable ingredient and it's edible, anything goes
    Exercise: chasing, swatting and medicating in the house of horrors
    Feeling: need you ask?
    See you on the flip side peeps!

    That's a great loss!

    I always count on the 8 to 10-hour mark after my daily meal to expect hunger high to re-absorb me into ultra-functionality. I love taking tests in the state of flow!

    With all that you do, you are going to be as skinny as a rail. And the kids get better, at least they did for me.
