I'm guessing that might be what is it, the last couple of weeks before this past week, I had more sodium then i really should have and I know i wasn't drinking enough water. so i didn't lose a whole lot, maybe one lb- 1 1/2 lbs between the 2 weeks before last week, It was definitely less then what i normally see.
I've been loading up on a lot more veggies this past week and i plan to do the same this week while getting in as much exercise as i did last week. So we'll see. I really wanted a 40 or more loss by the 25th (which is my family reunion), so it's definitely the goal this week to get those last 3 lbs gone, and if it happens to be more then all the better lol.
I find too, when my eating is less then ideal (and if i happen to consume way too much salt) the scale will jump quite a bit, but then after a week of good habits and enough water and minimal to barely any salt, then it goes back down and shows that I've even lost a lb or two.
I happened to have taken a photo this morning showing the number of 233 and a new progress photo, so mum can kind of shut up about it lol.
Thanks!, I happen to be really happy about it, but then when my mother starts going off about how that can't be accurate and "i thought you told me such and such the other day" is when i really start to second guess. It's a bit of a struggle with her, she says good job, but i can tell by her tone she doesn't really mean it. That's the most frustrating thing about this journey so far, she doesn't understand how hard it's been because she's never been 270 lbs. It had been so easy to not care about what i ate and not care about portion sizes and just eat junk and crap and processed foods constantly the last 3 and 1/2 years and i've been working really hard to keep on top of it the past 4 and 1/2 months. I have my off days just like everybody else, but at least for the most part I'm proud of what i've done and i just wish she would be sincere and even just a little enthusiastic lol
Can't is NOT in my vocabulary
I CAN, I WILL ,I AM! !
Mini goal- to lose 40 lbs (September 4th 2012 !!!!)
Last goal of a total 130lbs lost by Dec 2013 (61 lbs to go !)
