I have been having such a hard time lately!!! I lost 40 pounds a while back. I think I hit my low of 173 in August and then hung out between 175 and 183 for a good long time. 183 was sort of my drop dead weight. I was bound and determined not to go above 183 but then I did.
I think it was about a week ago, I just jumped one day to 185 and now somehow I'm at 188! Gah! This is not okay!
But for some reason I just cannot get my diet to work for me. I was really good about it for two days in a row this week and normally I lose quickly at first, like I'd normally expect to lose 3 or 4 pounds the first two days and I only lost a pound over those two days. I also feel like I can't it to work for me in terms of being able to stick to it. Like, over those two days I thought I'd finally gotten back on, but on morning number three I took a nose dive into the frosted mini wheats.
This morning I got up and had *more* mini wheats. But from this moment on... I swear I'm going to do it. I would love to get back down to or below that 173. I also have a doctors appointment on december 6th and I'd love to be down a few pounds before then. If my body acted like it normally does, I should be able to lose 8 o r9 pounds in the first two weeks, so I really just need to stay on track! I hope I can make it happen! I find those first few days so hard!
How are you feeling about getting started?
