I did weigh in. I was down! YAY!! 1.4 pounds. I was a little disappointed. I was really hoping for more, but it's a loss and it's a good amount. I am 5 pounds away from 10% of my original body weight gone and 5 pounds away from saying goodbye to 200's. I'm at 204.8 right now. I'm SO CLOSE! It's exciting . . . and scary all at the same time.
Exciting because it's what I've been striving at for a LOOOOONG time. It's scary because . . . well . . . success is scary and I'll be closing in on "it's my fault" weight. Not the "it's my thyroid" weight. Though, I think that may have been the first 10 pounds. So I really can't use that excuse anymore. But I've been clinging to it anyway. Once I get under 200 I can't do that!
I REALLY do want to see a 1 in front of my weight. I'm only 5 pounds away. I know I can do this.
I just got to stop eating popcorn (lunch) and cookies (more lunch) and stick to the plan I've set out for myself.
Speaking of food . . . Yesterday was perfect! Lunch was a salad that was lettuce, cucumbers, egg, tomato and crumbled bacon with the tiniest bit of balsamic vinegar for dressing.
Dinner was 2 pieces of chicken and a couple pieces of bacon with a bowl of the leftover grilled veggies from Sunday. Then an orange for dessert. It was SO good. My Italian was at his parents for dinner so I had the apartment to myself, with the exception of the two monsters (cats).
After I finished dinner, I grabbed my book and as I was heading to our bedroom to veg and read some I head a car door slam. I know that sound. Sure enough. My wonderful Italian was home! NOOOOOOO!!!!
I decided to ignore the fact that they were coming in and continue reading. My father-in-law brought him in, put left-overs in the fridge, took our recyclables and said hello and good-bye. I never moved from the bed where I was reading. It may have been rude, but I wanted my down-time damn it!
My Italian rolled in and . . . yep . . . needed help. *sigh* But shortly later he started getting ready for bed so I was able to go back to my book and veg for quite a while longer. Then we got him in bed and we snuggled up to watch Lovely Bones.
It was a wonderful and relaxing evening! Something I very much needed. I could still use that vacation, but I think I can make it through this week. I need to carve out some time for myself this weekend too. Just me. Unplugging from everything and just relaxing . . . hmmmm . . . nice.
OH! My Italian goes to the doctor tomorrow! His foot has been sore since last friday when he walked halfway up the pool ramp. :( I hope he didn't do anything to it! (I'm going to KILL him if he did anything to it!) But we also find out how many more weeks
So yea . . . how are you?
