So, I finally had a good week. Funny how sticking to your calorie allotment, exercising, and sensible planning while eating out will actually result in weight loss. I went to TOPS and recorded a 5.4 lb loss. That puts me at 245.9 lbs, which is 14.7 lbs loss to date. I was happy to see that kind of loss after being so frustrated for the last month.
I plan to continue with the 1500 calories a day and not going over 1600. I also plan to not having anymore “free” days where calories don’t matter. That is bull-larkey and I’m not going to do that to myself. We ate out twice this week at Jason’s Deli and I made sure that they calories were within my plan.
I think my groin pull is under control and I can now be back on the treadmill everyday. Today I had the incline up to 3 and was going at 3.4 mph for at least 20 minutes. I did 2.25 miles today and one on the Elliptical.
So Melissa at Starbucks called me. FINALLY!!! I start my new job at Bux on Monday at 3:30pm. I’m so excited! And a little nervous, but I’m really trying not to let that get to me. I know I will do a great job and it’s so wonderful to finally get my foot in the door after all the networking I’ve done the last three years to get hired there. Sure hope I like it! LOL
I went and bought a new pair of black pants to work in last night. They were a size 18 and fit very comfortably. I’m heading downward! I looked around Kohls a bit and thought how much I would like to shop there once I reach goal. There is a whole world of clothing that I can’t wait to try on and wear.
I’ll write again soon, but right now I got an orchid that needs transplanting. *smiles*
