Wed Weigh In
I weighed in this morning for the "official" weigh in and no surprise, I am UP 2.4 lbs. I am taking it in stride. The weight is actually down a pound and half since yesterday. The scales are now safely in the trunk of my car ( thanks Shelley ). No more jumping on and off those suckers this week. My head is in a much better place this morning. I did 45 mins on the treadclimber yesterday and really pushed myself. I walked this morning and yesterday's food wasn't AS BAD. So I am moving in the right direction. I can almost feel the fog lifting.
My sister said something to me yesterday that I have been thinking about since. She said sometimes you need to eat yourself into oblivion so you can remember how miserable you CAN be. I ate that way ( so full you want to hurl )on a regular basis. I can't believe I really ate like that. No wonder I was a miserable person. No wonder I never wanted to go anywhere. No wonder I never really groomed myself. I wore PJs and bed head to work ALOT! Cause I work in a home, the dress code is pretty lax. No matter how bad I have eaten the past week, it's nothing like I used to eat. Actually in the past 10 months I have rarely eaten like that. If there ARE no bad times, how would you KNOW when you were having good times, right?
So today is new day. I have on TJ's skinny jeans today. Today they are just alittle tight. I must have been just really bloated. I have eating lots of clementines...yummy goodness! Plus I FINALLY did a decent food shop. Made a big pot of WW chili and I am feeling very positive. I can't thank everyone enough for all your supportive and kind comments yesterday. I KNOW that much of success is due in part to this blog. Being able to put my feelings and behaviors out there is what I thought was going to be the key. But your support and encouragement is the real key! You guys have got my heart. Thanks. And look, no weeping this morning....lol!
Today's tender mercy is the sunrise ( PIC ABOVE ) I walked out the door to this morning. Gorgeous! Another is my job. Lots of state employees are loosing their jobs. Everyone in my little family has a job right now. That is a tender mercy!
Keep the mood and the food real..........keeping moving in the right direction.
