Today is weigh day. I almost forgot because I haven't had much determination this last week. When I woke up this morning, it took me about 10 minutes to remember that it was weigh day. So, I hesitantly decided to hop on the scale after my bath. I cringed as I stepped on. I feared that I had gained or at least remained the same from last week. I only worked out one day this week and my calorie consistency has left alot to be desired.
Well, I am very happy to report that I have lost the gain that I had from the medicine as well as 2 additional pounds. This morning's weight is 244. I was very excited about this. It was totally unexpected and I think it may be part of what I needed to put me back on track this week.
Even though I know it may not be the best approach, I am gong to try something new. I am going to try as hard as I can to hit 240 by next Sunday. I am going to have to be super strict with myself and work out everyday regardless of what obstacles I have this week. I want to see results and I need a goal to shoot for in order to get the results I want. So we'll see how this goes. It's only a little over 1/2 a pound a day, and that's do-able.
I am also going to try my best to blog everyday, and not just days when I "feel like it." I find that if I don't "feel" like blogging, then it's probably because I haven't been very focused on my journey. It's easy to ignore our shortcomings if we don't have to face up to it by writing it out. I don't want to be easy on myself at all this week. I can do this. My will is strong. It's my attitude that has sucked this week. I will keep my attitude in check and be back on track.
Thanks for hanging in there with me. It's been a struggle and I am sure that it will continue to be. (BTW, my husband just held a plate full of pizza rolls up in my face to offer me one. I declined, of course. This WILL continue to be a struggle.) I can and will overcome the issues that I deal with everyday. I can do it and so can you, my blogger friends! Let's do this together. Let's make some dreams come true!
I hope you all have a fabulous week full of success story after success story!
