normally, I wouldn't post a thread to announce a mini-goal (probably a habit I should get out of if I want to keep myself motivated and proud of my achievements), but I just can't resist sharing this happy moment with you guys!
the past 2 weeks, I've been feeling very icky about myself, thinking I gained weight and feeling miserable... no binge eating, though! I just felt crappy and like a failure... the last time I'd weighed myself, I was steadily at 248-251 range, but I had been feeling that I was getting back up to my all-time high weight of 260.
well, motivated to get myself out of that slump, i weighed myself this morning, thinking I'd "scare" myself into dieting (bad idea, I realize), and lo and behold! I see that I've lost 12 pounds!
and this was after
drinking a couple of glasses of water and having a shower (which matters to me, because I always feel extra heavy after both.)
it just made my day.
and it was a MUCH
better motivator than fear. i decided to skip the fattening Mexican food dinner I was supposed to have with my friend, and instead opted for a caesar salad, grapes, and tons of water.
I'm happy, and I look forward to the next 12 pounds! I thought this was impossible to do, much more without trying (I haven't worked out in a month, but I've been taking the hydroxycut-manufactured hoodia supplements [no lectures, please], and haven't really been watching what I eat... just restraining myself from binging), so I can't imagine how much more
progress I can make while actually dieting and exercising!
sorry this is so long, and sorry for the lack of pictures, but I just wanted to share this small bit of happiness with complete strangers since I've worn out talking about it with my mom.
