Well, got up this morning. Walked the dog & put my 2 yr old son's sheets in the wash. Then got on the scale. The scale went down. Yippee!!! It went down 2 lbs and I'm happy with it. Really, I am. But, it's funny how our minds work. The past 2 weeks I lost 5 lbs each week. So, of course, I get into this mindframe that I'm Wonder Woman and I'm gonna keep moving right along losing 5 lbs every week. Wow! Great! But, not reality. So, at first I'm like Oh sh-- I only lost 2 lbs. Not sure why since I've been doing everything fine even incorporated exercise. Which, that in itself is an accomplishment. I quickly snapped back into reality and just told myself it's not how quick it comes off. It's just as long as it does come off. So, you know what? I'm happy with a 2 lb loss. I'm happy the scale went down and not up or stayed the same. I've lost 12 lbs since January 3. Not too shabby. I just want to get healthy and be around for my kids as long as possible. I want to wear nice clothes and not get disgusted at what I see in the mirror. I'm a real good mom, good friend, love my kids, family, & friends. I'm taking control finally of my eating and health and I'm working on making a better me by getting healthy, exercising, & losing weight. I guess all that does make me Wonder Woman!! Have a great week everyone!!
