Yay for even the smallest losses!
We can do this
Since I do IP with alternatives, I don't have a coach/clinic and weigh in at home. My "official" weigh in day is Saturday morning, but I weigh myself usually at least 5 times a week. It's more to see how certain foods and activities affect my water weight/gaining muscle/etc.
I've been having a hard time the last few weeks between Easter, my birthday and starting to work more hours at the hospital and rotating to night shifts. The culture of nurses (and I'm sure other professions!) is to give give give - and on my unit, they love to bring in/share food!! We have "munchy Mondays" and "ice cream Fridays" and almost every overnight shift and weekend they order out for dinner (Thai, subs, pizza, chicken kabob plates with fluffy pita bread, etc). Just yesterday a nurse brought in a huge tub of her famous homemade guacamole with Tostitos chips and everyone was digging in and moaning about how good it was......
I guess I'm just having a pity party for myself, but I'm finding that my motivation and willpower is seriously waning, this last week especially. I'm even craving foods I don't even like that much. I'd kill someone for peanut butter or a fresh hunk of baguette bread.
I fit into almost all of my old clothes (size 6) and I'm only slightly halfway past my goal. Our wedding is in August, and I so badly wanted to be 135 going into the summer - I'm slightly frustrated at how long it's even taken for me to get to 148. Ok, rant over.
