Brave or Crazy?

I'm directing a children's play at my kids school. There are 50 kids in it. I send emails to the parents all the time and I have my American Homemaker blog link in the signature, which means lots of parents at our school can easily find their way here to my list of measurements and weight. (Welcome school parents!) I was told by a nice (and skinny) mom today that I'm really brave to post my measurements and weight. So I ask, is it brave or stupid? Should I advertise what I weigh to everyone I know?

I also had someone tell me today I look like I'm getting skinny. Is it just because they saw my weight-loss blog and they want me to feel good?

I'm obviously not going to stop posting my weight. I truly think there is no greater motivator than knowing everyone I know sees if I succeed of fail, but it's just something I was thinking about. I had a friend that stopped donating plasma because my ex got a part-time job there as a phlebotomist and she didn't want someone she knew to know her weight. She lost out on extra grocery money and hello, it's not like his wife was a size 2! Anyways... I'm just rambling now.

Hope everyone is having a good week so far! I'm doing ok. I had blueberries, mushrooms and squash today. I've eaten other things too, but I'm proud of myself for sticking to my goal of eating more fresh fruits and veggies. I've slacked at the sleep thing. I DESPERATELY want more sleep, but my schedule is so hectic I just haven't been able to make it happen. But tonight I am determined!!! to get to bed by 11pm. Working out. Hhmmm.... yeah..... honestly I don't have any desire at all to exercise. Sad but true. I'm physically and emotionally exhausted every day and I think if I tried to fit in exercise I'd start crying. I'm not even joking.

Today:
1 egg
1 slice whole wheat toast
blueberries
2 granola bars
string cheese
stroganoff
mushrooms
squash
water

We won't even talk about yesterdays 1/4lb polish dog, coke and frozen yogurt I had at Costco :(

I started at 272.5 and am now at 207. Onederland is in sight!

You did a great job with your food today! Just take it one day at a time!

I think you are very brave (not stupid) and very smart! You know that posting your weight and measurements will help keep you accountable!

Hope you get some rest!
