Good morning girls!
What a busy week this has been and I have been so tired! I think its the weather is changing & my body is starting to figure it out. Its been sunny but much cooler up in PA & that coupled with the fact that its getting darker earlier, my internal clock is trying to figure things out. I haven't posted because I just haven't had the mental energy to muster up something good, but i have been reading your blogs & trying to comment daily. Thanks to all my Girfriends here for all your great wisdom & inspiration! Love It!
I started out the week doing the low carb/low sugar BFC thing & after 2 days, found myself to be such an irritable grump to be around that I decided it is best for me to just continue WW plan. Every time I do BFC, I can swing a couple of days & then I just cant do it anymore. Its just not the plan for me and I know that without a doubt now. I am jealous of all of you who do it so diligently & to see your successes is amazing however, this plan isn't great for everyone. I thought to myself, "you have done so well on WW Sherri & you are not only losing pounds but inches too so why reinvent the wheel?" If it ain't broke, don't fix it, so I am gonna do just that! In perspective, over the last 8+ months I have lost almost 40# & over 17.5 inches from my body, 6 inches from my waist & 6 inches from my belly. I am now wearing a MISSES size 14 & this plan just fits my lifestyle the best. I don't have time to make 2 separate meals for my family, & when I get home from work at 5pm, the last thing I wanna do is cook 2 meals. Its hard enough for me to cook one! lol. So that's my thoughts. I had gotten on the scale on Monday & it was saying I was up about 3#...yikes! I got on the scale this morning & I am back down to where I was last week on weigh in day. I would like to see 1# lost this week at least so just going to continue to stay true to this and keep plugging away. As Rosalie said in her post believing it will work is essential, and I have not only seen WW working for me but it is proven to work and it is the best fit for my life & that makes me happy.
So 30 days from today, I will be turning 45 yrs old....Uggh!!! I want to be in the 170s by my bday dang it! I really wanted to be in the 160s by then but that's just not the case...perhaps by Halloween. I'm getting there...slowly but surely, we are all getting there!
So if you are feeling down about not being where you wanted to be at this time, chin up my friends! Look back on how far you have come & the little successes along the way like the looser clothing, better health & improved nutritional habits you have formed. I have to constantly remind myself that the scale DOES NOT define me and I hope that you will remember that too!!
Have a wonderful day today!!! I am off to the dentist, then to get a haircut & color (gonna get a sassy new do today!) then to school shop for clothes, then its meet the teacher night. A full day for sure....no such thing as a day off! lol.
Hugs & Encouragement to all my skinny peeps!
