4o lbs gone

I can hardly believe it. I lost 5.8 lbs this week. That's a total of exactly 40 lbs. I am am kind of freaking out right now. Still not sure what to think. I didn't track anything, but I walked 4 miles this morning like it was nothing. I am not sure what I am doing wrong or right. I ate 2 very good girl scout cookies. My son-in-law, the skinny without trying kid, bought cases.....yes I said cases....of the coconut kind. MY FAVORITES. The most important word of the last 2 sentence was TWO! I had 2 cookies, not a 2boxes. I was not even tempted this week. Why this week. I have no earthly clue. I focused more on not binging and eating good for me foods ( thanks Roxie, great idea ) . Plus, I have been also paying attention to if I am really hungry, then eating filling foods. Trying to honestly decide if I am "using" food.

I know that this is highly unusal. For some odd reason this week everything worked well this week. My attitude was stellar. I was so focused on how I was going to handle it mentally if I didn't get a loss tonight. I seriously didn't know how to act when she told me 5.8 lbs lost. I almost cried right there. Lots of happy tears lately. Now that might have something to do with the hormone patch...lol I am also 2 weeks into my new hormone patch. I wonder if that might have something to do with my success.

I am stunned and very happy.....I am trying to convince myself I would have felt this way regardless of what the scales said.........just because of all my NSV insights. I will have the chance to fall back on that in the future FOR SURE. So don't get to cocky, Dana. Next week or the next, when I don't show a loss. Then let's see me be really happy then as well. I don't want the scale to make or break me.

It's so true. It's all in my head. I am planning a anti-sabatoge yourself plan that I will be initiating this week. It's my M.O. to achieve, get cocky, binge. I will submit plan in the morning.

I owe MOST of my success this time to this blog and to this awesome group of people that give a shit. Thanks! You've got my heart!

Be good till Friday and we'll really see that froggy jump! :) I'm so happy your having a good week , a GREAT week! You've got it right though planning , planning is a major key to success here. If we leave it all up to chance theres more of a chance to fail. Plan how you are going to react to certain things is a good way to go. Be good, be brave, be strong. Jinx!

  13. Dana, I'm so happy for you. Way to go 5.8 lbs is huge this far along. It sounds like you've had a great week. Way to go on the 4 mile walk too that's a LOT. Don't let that darn scale have power though, I know how that is. You can do this, you are doing this *hug*.
