I haven't been online a lot, just a quick check in here & there. Ive been busy and when I hop on the blogs it takes me a good hour, sometimes longer to read all of your posts and comment (when I can if the computer allows me to) so I am back and I just wanted to check in and let you know whats been going on over here in my little corner of the world.
Last weeks weigh in was nothing short of a huge disappointment. I gained 2#! Man did that make me mad! It seems I have been on hiatus since I had that bad head cold and I had lost my desire to exercise and was eating over my points , so I sucked it up, took my lumps, and am moving on. I have been very good this week and I pray that the scale will be my friend on Saturday morning. Our Anesthesiologist had lunch catered in from Paner'as and I am proud to say I didn't go near those sandwiches and those cookies that were the size of UFOs!! lol! I kept telling myself that it wasn't as good as I thought and that it wasn't worth it. It worked! :) Its all in our heads and although I am a work in progress, I proved to myself that I can overcome that kind of temptation. My lunch was so good too. I packed some homemade veggie soup (1 cup) a turkey pita sandwich on 9 grain pita with some lettuce, 1 slice of provolone (light) and a smidge of ranch dressing, and I had a small yogurt with a few blackberries & raspberries. It was really yummy and I was not only proud of myself, but I had a very happy tummy and I fed my body with good things. I had a really yummy grilled chicken salad for dinner with ranch dressing (2T of the real stuff. No fat free dressing...YUCK!) and I topped it with a little cheese and 3 oz of baked fries. OMG...soooo good!!
I wanted to be down 5# this month and I am sad to report that I am not down anything this month. I guess that's what you get when you get comfortable. I think that's whats been happening to me and why I haven't lost any significant amt of weight since Oct. I think deep down, I have become complacent & content with where I am . I haven't weighed this little in YEARS and I haven't worn a size 14 since 1999. I really believe this is what has sunk into my skull and it is the reason for my plateau. Its all psychological. So its a matter of getting my thinking back on straight and refocusing again. I have lost the month of January and I take responsibility for that but I refuse to allow another month to pass and not lose any weight again. Before we know it, spring will be here and I want to be in the 160s by then. I read Amber's post about having her wedding dress fit again and I have decided that when I get down to 161, I will crack open the sealed box and try it on. I am actually kind of excited about that thought. That would be such a huge accomplishment and I promise I will have my husband take a picture and I will post it for you to see. My daughters have both said they have no desire to ever ear my wedding dress (which might I add, made me look and feel like a real princess) so why not crack that baby open & try her on again!!! My new motivation!
I am hoping that my posting issues have resolved. It seems I am able to post on blogs again without getting the blank screen so fingers crossed, lets hope that's the end of that dilemma.
I hope you all are having a great week!!! Its so hard to believe that February is right around the corner...how time truly does fly! Enjoy every moment!!!
Love & hugs to all!
