Apparently my scale has been off by about 5 lb....oh, no... I really weigh 220!!! That means I have gained about 40 lb since my gallbaldder surgery about 1-1/2 years ago. So I had my last high fat, Mexican meal yesterday for the last time until I reach that 180 mark again. I said I would never be heavy again. I have been lax in every possible way--eating too much, eating the wrong things, not exercising, etc, etc. In general, I have not been taking care of myself. This week I have restarted writing down what I eat and yesterday was incredibly excessive.
My new years resolution is starting today, on the 31st of January.
I double checked my weight at the gym and that scale is 5 lbs heavier than my home scale, too, so I have adjusted my scale and changed my weigh-in amount on Sparkpeople. Yesterday was also an extremely high sodium day,having had quesadilla and salsa. Today I plan to drink about 2 quarts of water to help flush that out.
I have to remember: Today is the first day of the rest of my life. This picture is me at my low weight of 175 and I felt great, too!!!
