I have been much improved in my way of the life this past week and I am starting to notice the benefits.
I started going to a new gym last week. I met a new friend and weight-loss buddy who I have been meeting there almost nightly (the one trying to fix me up on a date w/ her friend.) I am starting to get into the rhythm of working out and it’s not quite the ‘burden’ that it was even a week ago. … Ironically my body pain is getting better as well. I have a horrible back. (I always have problems with it because of my chest size.) I am feeling less pain than normal in my back since I began last week.
My cravings have started to reduce in size and frequency. They are becoming more manageable and I am able to talk myself out of most of them. When I have given in, I controlled myself to only eat a bite or two until I was satisfied and not eat the whole thing…. I even told my sister no the other night when she asked me to get her some McD’s. I said, “No way. I’m not going to get you French fries after I leave the gym; you know I will end up getting something for myself if I go.” So I didn’t.
I have been getting better about weighing myself as well. I have been known to be pretty obsessive with it, weighing several times a day. This past week I decided to just weigh in on Wednesdays. To make it a weekly checkpoint and then I can change my ticker on Wednesdays. …I did pretty well with it. I only weighed in 3 times in a weeks time (including today which was my official weigh-in)… yay! And I am down again. Back down to 239.5-----
Thanks 4 readin'!
