I mentioned on Sunday that my plan was to start this whole weight loss business as if it was day one again...
Two days into the plan, eating at the lower end of the recommended intake, drinking all my water (after taking a one week break), and dancing like a fool in front of my computer, I weighed in unofficially this morning and I am down to 256.0 lbs. I was 259.2 on Sunday morning (up almost 2 lbs from Saturday), which I'm sure was due to water retention from all the sodium I ingested the day before. My fingers were so swollen that I couldn't get my rings off!
This morning's weigh-in is enough to keep me motivated to get through the rest of this week, knowing that I'm half way to reaching the two pound goal that I set.
Now if I can only get myself motivated to get off my rump and get ready to go to work, for which I am already 8 minutes late. I know that I seem to be unprofessional about being late. I'm fed up... I handed in my overtime sheet for February, and they deducted four hours that I worked one night because they didn't "pre-approve" it. Right. I was so disgusted that I didn't even bother to insist that it's owed to me. At this point, I don't even care anymore. I'll take the four hours that they owe me in time instead of money. I figure they probably owe me a couple of weeks' worth of time for all the overtime that I worked between August and October that I didn't claim for, so I don't feel guilty about being late, especially since it's my last week there anyway.
Life is good!
(Oh look, I'm 25 minutes late now after doing some editing, and I still have to get ready! LOL)!
