More like it April 12, 2011
204.5 today. Now THAT is more like it. I knew it would be down some today — I did nothing but PEE all day yesterday! And I mean PEE! I felt like I lived on the potty yesterday — not sure why, either. I drank the same amount of water, etc. But darn if I didn’t go through an entire roll of paper! I was almost frustrated just because I was worried I was peeing like that and then the scale wouldn’t be down. But it’s down. YAY! That puts me only 1.5 from my low of 203 last Monday. My last ‘official’ weigh-in was on the 10th @ 207.5, but the Sunday before that on the 3rd was 204.5. So, when I do my weigh-in on the 17th, I will be happy as long as I am under 204.5. That is really what I am shooting for. I would really like to see 202. That way at least my average would be about 1lb. per week.
Looking over my food journal and my weight-loss calendar today and getting it more organized. Between it, here, and my home private journal, they got all jumbled up. So, I thought today would be a good day to go through them all and make sure I am not getting confused and to keep them clean and neat. I also went through here and re-organized a few things and may do more later. I love Spring! It’s a wonderful time for doing that kind of stuff. :D And really, it’s make me feel much better about my loss. I may not be losing huge amounts, but I am consistently losing at least 1lb. a week. I am a bit saddened by that, but at the same time, I’m happy. Sad because I wish it was double that. Happy because I am no where near starving, I don’t really feel deprived, and the scale is mostly going down! And now I feel much more calm and put together because I’ve updated my pages, my calendar, and hopefully I can check my journal and food log later. I’ve been pretty good about staying on top of the food log, so just going to double check it.
I have changed my mind on my closet. I have decided to go ahead and go through it to take out all the maternity stuff. Yes, some it is still wearable and cute, but I think I would be better off letting it go. I have also decided to go through and get out some of the stuff that I love that I want altered. I spoke with a friend today who had found a great alterations specialist and she isn’t too pricey. So, anything I love (aka, my denim jacket!) is going to get altered if possible. And like I said, I’ll remove the tags on altered items so that I will know they’ve been altered. Especially if in the future I do decide to give them away or whatever. The maternity stuff is going to be sold. The hubbs finally got me a new SD card for my camera, so I will be formatting that later and taking pics to sell on eBay. I will be selling it at a good price, so I hope it goes pretty fast! Not sure what I will do with all of the baby things. I may sell them on there or I may do a consignment shop here. I will just have to wait and see.
All in all, I think I have Spring Fever! I want to clean, organize, and get projects done. I want my head and home straight! And I am making progress, slowly but surely. Tonight is the hubbs last night on this shift, so hopefully we can get a few things done over his time off. We will just wait and see.
I think I will go for now and attempt to get some things done. Not sure what, but something. :) Especially since I am feeling in a much better frame of mind! Toodles! :D
