Weigh In Wednesday Take Two

Ok, so I know that it isn't Wednesday anymore and that the weigh in is officially over but I feel like I need to revise my post from yesterday. So please bear with me.
Starting weight: 210
Week 1: 207.1
Week 2:207.1
Week 3: 206
Total Loss: 4 lbs
Goal for Challenge: 10 lbs
Pounds to go: 6
Yeah! I am down one pound. Yesterday I was not exactly feeling the love of being down, but I spent the day putting my head back on straight and thinking about what an idiot I am. Hello self! A pound is a pound take it. I am very happy about a loss and not a gain. This is great, we are moving in the right direction.
In my defense for my less than stellar attitude yesterday I had a lot happen the day before and was still kinda reeling for the shock. Gary and I each have sons, his is 17, mine is 7. Mine lives with us full time and his lives with his mother. His son, Bill, in the past has lived with us, but about 4 months ago decided that he didn't exactly like our rules and wanted to go stay with his mother. We respected his decision and although he wasn't living with us we still saw him at least 3-4 times a week. We settled into a comfortable routine over the summer with Kris and work and everything that summer brings. NO DRAMA, pure bliss. We have been getting ready for the school year as Bill will be a senior this year and I have been super busy making appointments for senior pictures and new glasses and running around getting him new school clothes, I have been busy to say the least. Everything was set, senior pictures on Wednesday, clothes were ironed, we were ready to go. Then Tuesday afternoon I get a call from Gary that we need to postpone the photos, that Bill had DRAMA at his mothers and that he was moving home. Life spun upside down. I was in shock, first and foremost I was concerned with the drama that had taken place and wanted to make sure that Bill was ok. He may not be my flesh and blood but he is my son. Bill is ok, Gary resolved the drama, and Bill moved back into his room. But life doesn't settle down that easily or that quickly and I am a huge analizer so I am still running everything through my head trying to make heads or tails of it. My mind is trying to come to terms with another person in the house and the rules that need to be put back into effect and making sure that things continue to run smoothly in our house. Anyone that has a teenager can probably atest to the fact that at 17 and a senior they think they have it all figured out.
So I apologize that my head was not on my successful weight loss yesterday and was all tied down with the crasiness of home life. I am excited about lossing a pound, I want to keep doing that as often as I can. Every pound is a success. So please forgive me for being ungrateful, I am back in the game again!
