Finally… I can celebrate! I am not in the 200’s anymore! Let’s see my numbers:
Last Monday’s weight: 200.6 lbs. Today’s weight: 197.2 lbs.
3.4 pounds this week! I was really hoping to lose more but I knew it would be hard since I didn’t go to the gym any of those days! I finally got shoes that are comfortable for running (on Sunday after returning 2 pairs of shoes and trying many others on!) but I am ready to go back to the “gym routine” today!
I am so happy to finally be in the 100s! It is soo rewarding! but I’m going for more!!! Yesterday was a good day… we had an invitation to eat dinner with some friends from church and I did awesome… I ate what they made but watching the combination of foods, filling my plate with lots of veggies (salad and green beans) and small portions of pasta and meat. It was good, I enjoyed the conversation and didn’t touch the cookies at the end. On Saturday I indulged with a diet soda but I realize I didn’t even need it (I couldn’t even drink half) I’ve never been a “soda” person so water is always better… I know junk food will always be there and will always tempt me… no matter how much I enjoy healthy food and vegetables I still crave fries and pizza… I like the “healthy alternatives” but sometimes I still want the greasy stuff! and the “nothing-fat-free-in-it-desserts” … So I have the opportunity to “exercise” my self-control very often! and I am happy I am doing well… The more I use my strength and self-control the more I feel I can do this!
Ok… I just wanted to share the news! …. Have to go now… the 3 and 1 yr. old won’t give themselves breakfast on their own 😛
