Well, there is about one week left until I leave for the trip. I weighed in today at 148.5 lb. I am not where I want to be, and I did it:
I tried on the dress again.
While it is a lot closer to fitting than it was 7 lb. ago, it is still too damn small. I am going to have to wear a different dress. But, it is ok. I am not going to beat myself up; it was a bit of a lofty goal, I guess, and I am not giving up.
I am moving on from trying to fit into the dress, but I am still using it as a tool to gauge my weight better than the scale. My goal is to be at 145 lb. when I go on my trip, and to not gain any weight during that week. I won't have internet access, though, at least I don't think so. I won't be able to track. It is going to be a true test of all I have learned on SparkPeople.
I have a new goal: to comfortably fit into the dress by October 31st. I want to be down to 125-130 lb. ideally. I am not going to let myself spiral out of control again. I am taking back my power! October 31st is my new goal date. Let's do this thing!
