R3P3D4 Back to Work!!

Round 3 Phase 3 Day 04
R3 LIW: 162.0 03.19.08
Yesterday's Wt: 164.0
Today's Wt: 165.0
1.0 lbs GAIN from yesterday
3.0 lbs over LIW

I don't like having to weigh myself so early because I don't feel it is an accurate reading. I forgot to bring my scale with me so I could weigh myself later this morning. I did a modified steak day yesterday. I was running around in the early afternoon. I had to pick up some items from a freecycler and go to the grocery store. I got home to put everything away and this little old man was trimming my palm trees. I had explained to him that I was not interested in him working on my palm trees simply because I could not afford to pay him. I was very honest with him and he said I could pay him in payments. I felt bad for him because I know he wants something to do so he's not bored at home and what not but I flat out told him I could not pay him but he insisted. So he shows up yesterday and just starts working on them. I ate around one because I knew I had an appointment about the mobile home at 3:30. I drove over to my father's house and stepmonster picked us up. We went and signed paperwork and they gave me a check so I can send the payoff. The only problem now is that it isn't enough. Since she paid the property taxes and the back rent owed on the lot, she took it out of my cut. Now I'm scrambling to find the difference of about $300.00 which I need to send overnight so I can pay it off by the end of the month, errrgh!! I called and asked my mom but my sister had already called her to ask her for money so she could pay her mortgage, errrrrrgh!!! Granted my sister makes more money than I do but she has 4 kids she needs to support. So this is my dilemma today. I wasn't able to ask my father because I know stepmonster will say they don't have the money or she'll want me to pay them back with high interest. Can you tell we don't get along?

Yesterday's Menu:
B: coffee w/half & half and Splenda
L: brisket, an avocado and a couple of green onions
S: pork rinds w/hot sauce and a few macadamia nuts, 2 cups wulong tea

Marlene, yes, I did manage to control myself so I got to taste everything moderately. It is very difficult to maintain or at least look like I'm maintaining because of the early morning weigh ins, arrrgh!!

Guess who???? OMG! I am so back! Geesh what a trip, but glad to be home. So you are on P3 now? Ok, and only 3 lbs above LIW - excellent, keep it up!

Me? Don't ask! HA! But I will get it under control!

I just hate it when those numbers creep up on P3! What is wrong with them creeping down??

About early weighing - Is it something you only do occasionally? Do you usually weigh yourself at work? Why not take your scale to work and leave it there for the week and bring it home only on the days you are off?

Hopefully the man will not make you feel obligated to pay him. You told him up front that you couldn't.

Well if it isn't my good 'ol pal Marrrray Moe! How the hell are ya my friend?

Phew, I was able to get all caught up on you so now I feel like I'm back in the loop! Thank God you sold the mobile home but dammnit, you need more $$$! What ya goin do? I laughed at the "stepmonster" I have one too!

That was great you were complimented on losing weight. You've been doing this for so long, you deserve the compliments (and a break)!

So are you going to do a steak day?

I missed you sista!!!

Do you eat and drink before you weigh yourself at work? You must atleast drink some water before going to work so that might show up on your weigh inns. I think Kevin says to weigh right after u get up and pee. I think as long as you weigh urself everday at the same time the weight change should be correct.
