Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

Today's challenge: Getting my run in. Feeling a little out of it with all this tooth stuff. Don't have to worry about snacking since I don't have an appetite.
Planned fitness: abdominals and 5 mile run
Note on picture: These grapes in this picture were still warm from the sun shining on them. They were freshly picked from my neighbor's mini-vineyard. They have a rich taste and are not as firm as grapes that you buy in the store. The came picked with this white coating on them.
Update on tooth: Went to the dentist at 8:00 a.m. this morning. They said part of my filling fell out which could have been causing the pain, and also they found a cavity under the filling, which also could have contributed to the pain. You can't see the cavity in an x-ray, and apparently cavities can form under fillings. I just had a checkup two weeks ago, and my filling was still intact then. So, they put a filling in it. If I still have tooth pain after this, it could need a root canal. So, I'm feeling tired and I wonder if this headache is due to the fact that I haven't had a coffee since Friday.
Comment on Weight: Oh, and I'm also annoyed at my weight. I should be at a 14 pound weight loss right now, not a 12. I'm just waiting to wake up one morning with a three pound drop.


  1. That tooth sounds terrible. I had a cavity under my filling as well. I hope you don't need the root canal. Sending good thoughts your way. Don't get discouraged - that is still 12 pounds you are not carrying around with you anymore! YES!

  2. uggh dentists. i'm glad it seems to be getting fixed and hopefully you won't need the root canal (just so it'll be over and done with!). i looove the "cavities can form under a filling" - i feel like it's just a crap excuse 'cause they missed some the first time or didn't seal it up properly.
