Default How do you feel about yourself today?

I started off depressed because the scale was not kind yesterday. But now I am motivated to make the best of this day and accomplish my goals so the scale will move in the right direction next week.

I feel fabulous despite no real movement in the scales in forever. I had a makeover yesterday. So I felt pretty yesterday. And still today...

I actually feel energized today. I woke up feeling good about myself even before I got on the scale (which was down a pound, so made me feel even better). It's a nice changes because I've had a bit of a melancholy few days. It's nice to shake off that funk.

i felt good b/c i am finally down to 192.2, and when i was 9 months pregnant with my last child (who was 10 1/2 pounds!), i weighed 192. so, glad NOT to weigh more than i did 9 months pregnant anymore

also feeling a little down b/c i've lost 15.5 pounds and not sure i look any different at all. and thinking about how much farther i have to go

was thinking today about how easy it is to eat on plan. i dont really have to fight urges to eat too much. sure, as i was counting out my 27 cheez-its (150 cal) i was thinking how i'd love to fill the baggie up and just eat, but, it wasn't difficult at all to stop at 27. i think my brain is accepting it all! heck some days i have to make myself eat up to 1200 calories. it also helps that i work goodies into my calories.

so, good and bad!

I am feeling impatient. I want the weight to fall off much more quickly than it has been. I keep seeing that I need to do more work in order for that to happen, when I already feel that I am doing so much and I have no more to give to this effort. I recently lowered my caloric intake to 1200, and each day since I have done that I have managed to go over 1200! The reason I lowered it in the first place was that I was consistently eating below the 1300-1400 range I was holding to before. Is it psychological that now I feel hungrier because of my lowered daily caloric goal? Weird.

I feel crappy. My cheat day yesterday was a disaster--I was too sick to eat what I wanted and so I had leftovers into today. I did not throw them in the trash because I niavely thought I could keep them in the house and not indulge. Well obviously, that didn't work out. So my cheat day from yesterday spilled in to today.

BUT this is where it stops. I am throwing away any leftovers tonight and dousing them in bleach. I made banana bread last week and I have leftovers. I have frozen it and will take it over to a friend's house tomorrow because I cannot be trusted. Same with the girl scout cookies. These last two days were a a stumbling point but I will not let it defeat me.

Well, I have a sinus infection so as for that I feel Blah... BUT overall I feel great. I even made to the gym today which I didn't think was going to happen. It was a quickie only 35min on the elliptical but better then nothing.

Im feeling pretty good. I started a new anti depressant, which is giving me a lot more energy, and I lost 2 pounds this week. :-)

Even though I gained a pound between yesterday and today, I woke up feeling positive and energized. I made sure to eat on plan and then get plenty of movement (walking around mall, grocery shopping, etc.) PLUS an actual solid elliptical workout in today. So I am proud. That is sort of an unofficial goal of mine: to feel proud of what I am doing, so even when the scale doesn't reflect my hard work, I can at least feel proud of myself for trying my hardest.

I feel absolutely great. I had been sick with a cold the past week, and today I woke up with it completely gone. I lost the pound I gained with water weight and bloat yesterday, and I got a good workout in today. Stayed on plan, spent some time shopping with my mom....good day

I woke up tired, ended doing a lot of walking at work, came home, worked out and now am feeling pretty darn good. We had a quilt show at work but instead of eating goodies, I took some of the residents around to see the quilts. Great conversation and reminiscing and pushing wheelchairs is great exercise- more then I usually get at work. I stayed away from the snack buffet- didn't even go into that room at all. All in all, looking back, I had a great day!

I had a wonderful day. It started a little off with the scale showing a 1.7 gain, but I spent the day with my little cousin, who is really like my little sister, shopping. We went out to lunch, (chinese) and I had spicy green beans with 1/2 cup of brown rice. I felt good about my food choice and we walked around that 3 story mall for over 3 hours!! I got some homework and studying done, and now I'm relaxing with my furbabies and my fiance'!! Nothing but smiles over here!
