So I woke up this morning wandering how successful I was at losing weight this weekend. I jumped on my scale... actually it was more of a creeping slow crawl onto the scale so as not to add any unwanted energetic pounds! Surprise Surprise it was down to 211.5. YES!! That means I've lost 2.5 lbs this weekend. I'm finally doing something right... and do you know what that is? Its a mix of a couple of things... but they seem to work together..
1. I am NOT eating in between meals. I eat what I want, but only until I am full. Which means ...
2. I am eating SLOWLY. No racing to the finish line... just enjoying everything that is on my plate.
3. I am not stressing about what IS on my plate. So I eat carbs....fat...sugar. I am not going to stress out about it. This doesn't mean I am loading up my plate with cookies, doughnuts and cupcakes... I AM trying to eat HEALTHY after all.. but it means that if I am craving a cookie, or Popsicle.. I have one for dessert (because I am NOT eating in between meals... remember?)
These three things are working for me! and I am so happy they are. On top of it all.. I did not exorcise at all this weekend. In fact, I slept because I had to work. So just eating right is helping me lose weight. This morning I busted my behind though. I jogged/walked 1.5 miles in 30 minutes. I did my LL Cool J weight lifting regimen... and I have already had 8 glasses of water and its not even lunch time yet!
I am so happy that this feeling, this strength is back again. I was down in the dumps for too long... this time ... well this time is like all the other times... I am going to put my whole heart into losing this fat. The only new thing I have to do is try not to sabotage myself again.
My father in laws wedding is in two weeks. Now, in the back of my head I am counting days, pounds and calories... but I am not going to give myself a weight to reach by then... I am just going to do my best to look healthy... happy.. and , ok, maybe just a couple of pounds lighter!! LOL
I found my measuring tape.. but I am going to wait until tomorrow morning to do all the measuring. Tuesdays will be my official weigh in day from now on.
Hope everyone finds their inner strength strong .... its what drives you to succeed!
