FINAL WEIGH IN - AUG 31:
Well today was a bit disappointing, but I am trying not to let it get me down. I tried to prepare myself last night, knowing that I had way too much sodium yesterday and it would probably reflect poorly on the scale this morning, but it still kind of hurts. A loss is a loss and I should be celebrating -0.6 lbs. I looked back in my WW booklet and noticed that the last time I lost 0.# lbs. that I had a bigger loss the next week, so I am going to keep at it.
GREAT job on the exercise you got in! I called my local YMCA yesterday to get the price for membership and it's $38/mo.
That's a bit steep for me right now, on top of what I am paying for WW. Out of curiousity, does your healthcare there cover the cost of the gym?
Glad you had a great time over the weekend while being "disconnected". Sometimes that's exactly what we need. I am sure that weight will be off in no time.
Hey, I have a drawer full of Spanx that I've never worn also. Lol. I do remember Delta Burke! I wear a swimming suit when I am at home, but out in public... no way. A baggy t-shirt and shorts. I don't care what kind of looks I get. But really, I avoid those types of situations in public. I look forward to being able to go to a public jacuzzi (I LOVE jacuzzis) or a water park and not having to worry!
I know how it is when you have a dessert that you need to eat up. I watched my husband eat a piece of his ice cream birthday cake every night for a week straight and he still lost weight! Lol. MEN!
I had 2 pieces during two different weigh-in periods. The cake was approx. 440 cals for a slice. Next year I will buy a smaller one. For a light dessert, I really like fat free chocolate pudding with a dollop of whipped cream. So good. If I have extra calories, I will crumble up half of a chocolate chip cookie and put it on top.
Your non-plan sounds fabulous! I really like your outlook on things. I, too, can't find any enjoyment in a celery stick, no matter how hard I try, so I don't eat them. I focus on looking for ways to fit the things I do like into my days (the trick is just that I can't have everything on the SAME day... this may seem obvious, but it took me a while to figure out lol) while trying to keep nutrition in mind.
Keep up the great work! I hope the scale was kind to you.
Enjoy your weekend with the grands and your pad thai! Let us know how it goes.
AND CONGRATS TO EVERYONE ON THEIR LOSSES!! WOOHOO!!
Something that is on my mind and may help someone else... I am an emotional eater. Before I was ready to do this weight loss thing, I would actually get so emotional and anxious that I would cry over the thought of not being able to have fast food french fries every day, etc. It literally felt like the end of the world to me. But now I am able to go to restaurants and order steamed broccoli even if they offer fries on the menu. I just tell myself that fries will ALWAYS be there and I can have them when I plan for them. It sounds so simple when I type it out, but it was really difficult to get to this point and I am so happy to be here!
