So I lost 8 pounds this week! I didn't believe it when it showed up on the scale at first, but it is for real. I'm a little worried about that being a large loss at once (Thursday I was 264 and Tuesday I was 256) but I think it is fine. I had just got finished with TOM, plus I started drinking more water, doing the 3 mile walk and watching my sodium levels. Also I had maintained weight the one week and gained another (I thought I might have hit a plateau at that point)...but I think I'm still on track.
I learned more about sodium in the foods I eat. Some days I do go over, but try not to worry about it. Other days I am in range and it is great. I discovered that I was eating sweet pickles, and they have loads of sodium in! So now I don't eat them anymore.
Unfortunately my ex boyfriend is not so easy to lose! We both go to the same college, and he is obsessed with being my friend even though I have tried to make it crystal clear that I am not interested in it. If I sit at a table at lunch, he will sit at a nearby table and watch me! If he walks by an area that he knows I am usually there at that time, he will gawk in! Then he tries to strike up conversations, and at first I just tried being polite but he is not polite at all! He noticed I lost weight and said something like I look good, and he was being modest about that. (What does that even mean!?)
I don't know how to send him the message nicely, he is just not getting it. Do I have to be mean? Someone told me to tell him loudly (so others can hear) "I told you again and again, to leave me alone. Leave me alone." and he will be embarrassed that he was unwanted and others know, and leave me alone. However, others worry what his reaction will be (that he will do something to me). We are in a public place so I don't worry about that much. I could notify campus police that he is bothering me and they would take care of him...but I really don't want to get someone into trouble...how do you lose an ex boyfriend?
