Thank you guys so much!
I was having a bad morning yesterday but I feel really great today. Yesterday I actually ate out for all three meals, but made good, or at least low calorie, choices each time. I have a veggie omelet for breakfast, one of those mall pretzels with cheese(but no butter or salt) and at dinner I had a grilled chicken breast sandwich with some steak fries and an 80 calorie cocktail. I think my whole day ended up around 2,000 calories which, for me, is still weight loss territory.
Today I decided to face the scale because I figured it would either be bad enough to keep me on track or good enough to motivate me to keep going. It was actually really good at 251, meaning during the past three days of messing up only 1lb has decided to stick, leaving me with a 9lb loss for September. Not too shabby.
I also went to a concert to see one of my favorite bands last night and it was amazing! I wasn't even very self concious, but I noticed standing for those 3 hours really hurt my legs. The first hour in I was thinking "Wow, I don't know if I can stand the whole show!" But I did, and I danced and I think I burned quite a few calories.
I feel like that in itself is a huge reason to lose. Because I broke a sweat just standing for an hour and I'd like to not do that. :P
Anyways, I'm back in high spirits! I feel like I can definitely reach my goal of 4lbs lost in October! I guess I just got frightened that I was tumbling right back to my old ways. I haven't even been on the wagon that long and I still always feel like one step backwards and I'm going to fall off a cliff right into my old habits. I suppose that will always be a fear but hopefully I will learn to deal with it.
Thanks everyone! You're all so wonderful and someday I hope to be an inspiration too. ^.^
