BIG news guys I went for my 2 week weigh in this morning and I lost 4 lbs! YES! I know it is not the 5 I needed to be less than 300 lbs but I am so excited that I have lost 22 lbs to date. I am focusing on losing the extra 1 lb by the end of this week and then I will plan out my new attack to losing 15 lbs by November.
I was really worried because over the holiday weekend it did not go so well. My will power was tested beyond what I could control and I have to say I am not sorry about it at all - I went out of town to spend some time with some friends of mine and I was doing really well until we went to Outback and my friends daughter wanted me to share some cheese fries with her and I could not say no to that (who would right). But the rest of my meal was very lean and nutritious (Salmon and sweet potato with a garden salad) I was not too worried until I had to have ice cream yesterday. I have such a weakness for ice cream (and chocolate) - I don't like anything fancy just plain old vanilla and sometimes as a dip cone. I tried to fight the urge all day but I finally gave in yesterday afternoon and I have to say to my surprise I don't feel that guilty about it. I wanted it I got the small cone and moved on. I also did not work out on Saturday or Monday (gym closed early) and I know I should have done something to get my exercise in but I can honestly say I don't feel guilty about missing that either. I guess I am at a point now on my journey that I can realize that I know what I can and cannot do and what I need to do to focus on my goal.
I am just so thrilled to report that this time next week I am determined to met that goal I have set for myself for September (to be under 300 lbs.) and I can go into it knowing no matter what happens I can be proud of what I have accomplished to date.
I know I keep saying it but - Thanks everyone for your support you guys are the best.
I Moved Back to Washington, DC - I planned to write this post months ago, way in advance of our move. When I know I have a lot to say, the thought of starting feels overwhelming. But now the…
