Wiegh In Day
Good Monday morning! It was a great weekend. Hopefully a great interlude to a great week. So, today is weight in day and to my disbelief I lost 3 lbs. I can honestly say that I did NOT stick to my diet at all the past week... and the only exercises I got was walking up and down the Vegas strip...which can actually be a lot of walking... but nothing like what I was trying to do. So YEAH!!
On another note, I have been told by more then one person that I focus too much on the number on the scale. To that I have to say this, yes, on this blog I do focus everything on my weight...because this is my outlet. Where else can I keep track of my weight and talk about what I think I'm doing wrong or right? I realize that everyone reading my blog is hearing the same thing over and over again....I'm fat...but this really does not consume my life. I have two kids that do that!! LOL... just kidding. But honestly, I enjoy my life. I have almost lost it too many times to not enjoy every second. Yes, my weight does bother me...and I do talk about it a lot.. but that is because in my quest to enjoy my life, it has become a hindrance. So, like everything else in my life, if it is bothering me, I get rid of it. I don't focus on the negative....but losing weight is not a negative to me...this is something that I can focus on that I know will make me happy.
Ok ... so now I am just rambling. The thing is, that most of you only know the side of me that is fighting this battle of the bulge.... but don't think that that is all I think about! Please! I do enjoy the help...and Lisa, you totally have the right idea. Being happy is the key to losing weight....and I will definitely be looking up alot of those links you put up for me (thanks for the blog note on your site) but I just wanted you to know that for me dieting is simply living healthy...I know I have mentioned starvation.. but that was in a moment of sheer frustration..which is perfectly healthy to feel. I have a thing called "I want it now" syndrome. When I see something, or want something... then I want it NOW... and losing weight is the one thing that I cant get instant gratification with...and that is the hardest part for me to deal with. So, with little steps, I will continue on.....
Thanks to all my blog friends... I look forward to reading your daily life journeys everyday... and hope you will continue with me....
Have a Blessed Day
