Wrong? Right? I don't know

I'm pretty sure that now that all is said and (sorta) done I didn't lose any weight. I mean, I did. I got really close to my secondary goal. The one that was acceptable. 

I didn't end up having to give up cookies. I think I have had more alcohol to drink in the last 6 months than I have consumed in a lifetime. Even counting those nights I don't remember. ahem. I can thank skating for helping me out there. 

Then I got hurt. And quit skating for a month. But still drank and ate cookies and such as if I WAS skating. And put myself back at the beginning (I think. I can't remember where I began) However, my size stayed down. Today I saw a picture of myself in a bikini and thought, damn, I really do look good. Maybe it was the angle, maybe not, but how often do we get to say that?

Now that I'm back on wheels, I'm sure I will drop the poundage again. It helps that I haven't had time to go grocery shopping. Sort of. All I have to eat are klondike bars and carrots.

It was good though, to weigh in every monday. To know that other people were there to support and encourage. I'd do it again. I would have to be better about getting my emails in, but I think this was worth the little bit of time I put into it. Plus, it was fun to see what new piggy picture was posted every week!

we did something similar at my job. It does feel great when others are encouraging and supporting you :)
