Feeling better

After a shortfall last week, my weight has once again started declining. I lost 2.6. I am really happy with that. I am 2lbs away from my next goal of 15%. Then 1 lb away from being just “overweight.” Then the biggie 3 lbs after that… ONEderland. I am hoping to reach ONEderland by June 10th, but if I don’t I will not be disappointed. I am proud of my progress thus far. I will keep with this because this is a lifestyle change and I want a healthy life.

Excitement

I am 5 lbs away from Onderland. I can’t wait until the day in a few weeks that I can officially say I have a 1 in the hundreds place of my weight. ;) Oh happy day!

Needing a change

I feel like, in my life, I have been that typical extreme type A personality. In my honest opinion, it helped me get to where I am today. However, it has gotten the best of me in certain aspects of my life. I should not expect of others what I expect of myself. I know I’m organized, for the most part, punctual, ambitious, and driven. My husband on the other hand is the opposite. He does not care if he misses a deadline. He sleeps in all the time. He spontaneously chooses goals and when he tires of them, he doesn’t care. Other people in my life, such as a few of my friends, have the same personality that my husband does. I need to let myself not try to control everyone else.

My focus is me. I have focused on others so much that I have lost sight of what I want, what I strive for. Now that I’m losing weight, I am gaining confidence that I can let go of that extreme type A personality and be a bit more flexible and only expect myself to do things on my own terms.

Haven’t wrote in a while.

I’m still on plan. I kind of went over just my dailies yesterday, by 18. Got on the scale this morning and weighed less! I know it’s not weigh in time yet, but I was curious. Things are looking better on the husband front. I’m just taking everything one day at a time.

Feeling indifferent

I lost .2 today. I feel pretty good. I ate bad. Really bad tonight. Still within my points. Sorry, short post.

Stall

Okay, can I really say this is a stall? I’ve been the same weight for a week now. I’m okay, because I’m not gaining, but am wondering why this is occurring… I haven’t done anything different. Have not went over my points. Have eaten all my dailies, and some of my weeklies. Even when I hadn’t ate my weeklies, I was still at this stall. I don’t know. I forgot to do my measurements today, so I will do them tomorrow in the morning.

Scale is NOT moving =o(

I don’t understand why the scale is not moving at all. I’ve been following plan. I’m not quite sure what’s going on, but it’s okay. Really, I’m okay. Am I okay with staying this weight for long? No! I am not. It’s going to be okay though. I will push through, I don’t have any other choice. I guess I better get ready to get going for today. Later on, I will be posting progress pictures. =o) Maybe that will make me feel better.

Spring Break

I am very proud of myself. The end of spring break is tomorrow and I have successfully stuck to ww. Do I think I’m going to show a big loss this week? Absolutely not. Is that discouraging? No, not really to be honest. I have done so well since the beginning of January, even a half of a pound to a pound is a success is my book. I am still training for the walk-it challenge. Stress is about to increase due to my job. That’s okay though. I will not turn to food.

My husband and I have been having some problems. I’m going to pray about it and hope things get better. I know he loves me and I love him, but with our situation, living and financial, we just really can’t even begin to enjoy married life. We have almost been married a year and have not had that “honeymoon” period. I think that part of the reason is that our lives are so busy. I just want us to be happy.

Phew

It must have been a bunch of sodium. My weight dropped again, heh, huh, hum. I need to seriously stop weighing myself everyday.

BYE

Weight loss is confusing

I guess it is my own fault for having pizza again after lent. I somehow have put on 2 lbs. I know that my weight watchers points have been accounted for. I still have over half of my weeklies and the week has just started. I have not show one gain since starting points plus, and now I feel as though I threw it away for pizza. I mean, in a lifestyle change, you still need to allow yourself these things right?

I just can’t wrap my mind around it. Really I can’t. I did fine before lent with eating pizza, and now all of a sudden  I can’t have it anymore?

I did have one soft drink the other day, and really didn’t care too much for it. I know now I can deal without the soft drinks. Fast food, pft, I can definitely live without that so can my bank account.

I just don’t want to fall back into my old ways. I thought that I was doing better with eating three slices instead of four. Okay now I’m rambling.

Onto other important factors in my weight loss. I am halfway through the training for the walk-it challenge. It makes me want to learn how to run, so I downloaded an app. I just can’t decide when to actually begin it, for the simple fact that I don’t want my weight loss to stall to the point where I become frustrated and quit all together. Part of me wonders if I should wait until I get down to my goal weight and if I just maintain, hey I’m at goal.

Maybe I should have named this blog the Never ending rambles of a person with a type a personality.
