I had to weigh this morning... just to see. Today's weight, 243. Down by 2 pounds from yesterday.
New Me at http://newme-freshstart.blogspot.com/ sent me the best link yesterday. Thank you for that. I really needed it. It explained how the body's weight fluctuates and that we really shouldn't worry about what the scale says. It has alot of interesting information in it. I suggest that you read it if you get the chance. You can find it at http://primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/library/weight/scale.htm
It's worth the read. There are alot more things to be found on that website, I just haven't had a chance to read them yet, but I'm going to bet that it is good useful information.
So I feel a bit better about life today. I am going to start writing down what I eat and how many calories are in each thing, that way I will have more of an exact count. Also, I am going to have some peace and quiet more often in the evenings. I think part of my problem is chaos. It's not that my house is chaotic, it's noisy. I don't like noise. I like quiet. My husband, on the other hand, must have noise. He's the guy that turns on the t.v. as soon as he gets up in the morning and as soon as he gets home in the evening. The worst part is, he will come into the bedroom (where I'm sitting quietly) and turn the t.v. on and leave the room. DRIVES ME CRAZY! I really feel like this added noise adds stress to my evenings causing me to eta more. I had a quiet day yesterday here at home and I only had 977 calories for the day. It was soooo nice to have a peaceful day. So how are my evenings going to become more quiet? I don't know yet. My husband and I are working on that. But I do know that it will get better.
"If there is no struggle, there is no progress."
So I am off to work on Labor Day. That's ok, though. I only have a couple of people to see this morning and then I get to come back home. I will see one more this evening too. I will have the emergency phone though and if it rings, I will have to go back to work, but other than that, it's not like really working today.
Thanks for reading... Hope you have a wonderful day!
