OKay, first of all, you don't have to justify yourself posting in here, chic. Lie it or not, you are one of US. Deal with it! With that said...
WAHOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's AWESOME! You go girl! You rock! I'm envious but Go You! So proud! We knew you could do it! YIPPEE!!!!
Awesome to you, too, ck! You have been kicking some serious tush the past few weeks! Your hard work is paying off!
I've been a little MIA (again
). My classes have just kicked my butt the past 2 weeks. But class #1 is done... finally... and that frickin' pain in my tush paper is turned in and out of my life... finally. However, class #3 starts tonight so we'll see how that goes. So now, class #2 is T, Th morning and #3 is MW nights. #1 was interesting and I enjoyed it but it was just so technical and since it was 18 weeks jammed into 6 weeks meeting once a week, there was a lot to do at home each week. #3 has a couple more weeks to it but I think (hope, pray) it will be a little less demanding. Plus, it's Beginning Reading and Writing and that is SO my thing. And, I've already read quite a bit of one of the (very expensive) books because I used it as a reference for my paper for class #1. We'll see how it goes. I hope I'm not disappointed.
As for weighing, I've hit a tad of a plateau the past few weeks. Between not treadmilling on my regualr schedule and my period and probably not eating in my routine, I've not lost much. Last week was only a .2 loss, which I was even surprised at. But looking back, I think my points for each day were too consistant. I was around 28 everyday so I think by body got used to it. I've also found that if I don't use half (or a little more) flex points during the week, I don't do as well. That week I think I only used 10ish for the week so hopefully, I'll mix it up more this week. This past week I'd lost .8. Again, as shock. I woke up that morning and, after being back up a tad on my scale, if I wasn't back down on mine, I wasn't going to go this week. I'd never done that before. Luckily and miraculously I was down that .8. Amazing since on Wed and Thur I ate just about everything that wasn't nailed down thanks to my period.
Still, this week is calmer. I've treaded Monday and Tuesday )which I usually didn't since I've had class but we got out early). I went to Curves today and I think I'll skip treading tonight in favor of TWO episodes of Lost (wahoo!). I got on the scale this morning and I was down a pound so I feel a little better. (I realize I'm long winded, once again, but y'all should be used to it by now. One more rambling and I'm done...)
The thing is, all my life, when I plateau and get stuck, it's happened at the very weight I"m at now. I got stuck here in college and then again about 3 years later. I have no recollection of being under 161-164ish at all in my life. I was down to 157 when I had pneumonia but obviously went back up with I get healthy again. So to be 160 today made me happy. Hopefully I can stay there or get under it by Mon morning. Once I"m consistently in the 150s and staying there, I'll be THRILLED. Then I'll feel like I"ve accomplished something. I mean, I know I have accomplished a lot but I don't see it too much. Thankfully, everyone else does but I think I'll always see myself as the fat girl, ya know? We'll see how it goes, send me good vibes, girls!
Okay kids, I gotta do my hair and get ready for class! I'm hoping to be around more often so I"ll chat with y'all soon!
