Just breaking out of my early evening funk. My Cowboys lost and we needed that win. I know it's just a game but I am just a big fan. I am getting over it though.
Well it was my first clean eating weekend. I did decent. I stuck to the every three hours pretty good yesterday. Today I was a little off. Needed to go food shopping and that was the problem. Didn't have the goods in the house. I weighed myself yesterday and I lost a couple pounds but I did it after working out so I don't trust the numbers. I realized something yesterday though. I always have a time with the first ten pounds. I thought back to a couple of times when on the weight loss trail, specifically when I lost about 40 pounds in 2002. It took me almost three months to lose ten pounds. Well same seems to apply here. I lost the ten pounds but I can't break that barrier. I got to thinking that time and time again I had this issue. I would slim down but the number on the scale would take forever to budge. I had to persevere till it happened. That's just what I did the last time in 2002 and once I hit the ten pounds I got the other 30 off in about four months. Is that how it works for my body? I guess my body fights to keep it on initially. But I will prevail. I AM the LIttle Engine and damn it, I will! LOL
I do notice some positive changes though. My jeans look better on and are actually sliding off my butt, just a little. 'Alice' is still back there. That's what I started calling that thing I lug around day by day. Trust me, it's a biggin' so it gets it's own name. It's like it's own person following me around everywhere! When I get smaller and it looks sexier again, I give it a spicier name, like Alexis or something. But for now it's Alice and she is getting a little tinier. Less intimidating to the furniture. My husband told me today that he can tell I have lost some weight. Hearing that man say anything is an accomplishment on my part of itself. So I will continue on my journey, the little engine trudging along, with the desire and determination to get the job done. I think I can, I think I can. I KNOW I CAN!
Or maybe more like Sherman Klump from the Nutty Professor "Yes I can! Yes I can!"
