This week's weigh in was a source of a lot of stress for me...I've been very anxious about losing. I feel bloated and maybe a little bit depressed. It's getting to the time of the month for me, which could be it. Last night and the night before, I had horrible nightmares that I stepped on the scale and was up ten or twenty pounds! I envisioned my family and friends being disappointed and my JC consultant being angry at me!!!
Okay so maybe I'm a little crazy...
I got to my appointment 20 minutes early today--I just couldn't sit in the house anymore, everything was already clean, hahaha. (When I get nervous, I clean.) So I took out the garbage, got gas,and went to my appointment. Luckily Wednesdays are not the most popular WI day so my consultant was ready to take me. We talked first and I told her about how I had been feeling...and she told me not to worry. I need to remember that weight loss is a journey. I will NOT lose every week. I might even *gulp* GAIN! But it's all about learning to embrace a healthy lifestyle, staying on plan, and doing the right thing.
So, the verdict? I LOST 2.4 pounds!! That brings me down 10.4 pounds total!!! And I'm right on the verge of being out of the 300s since I weighed in exactly at 300.0 (give me a break scale! couldn't I have had that 0.1 lbs?) But it's a goal for next week!
I celebrated with a breakfast scramble smothered in hot sauce and a glass of skim milk! I need to stay focused this week. I am going out to dinner on Thursday with some good friends of mine. We're going to see Richard III by Shakespeare in the outdoor theatre, which is so much fun. We're getting Panera for dinner and then eating our picnic at the performance. I bought a new dining out guide (SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE OLD ONE!!! If you haven't gotten one yet, go...go now...and get one) and it is awesome. FINALLY some restaurants that are actually in CT!
So, with my head screwed on (mostly) straight, I am going to have a great week! I hope you all do too!
