I've never done a blog before so I'm not even sure what I'm doing, but I'm giving it a try. I am frustrated. I keep struggling with the same 10 pounds over and over again. I dropped the first 25 pretty easy and then I get down to 375 and stalled. I finally get down to 370 and I'm proud. Then I bounce back up. I lose it again. I finally get down to 365 and I'm feeling on top of the world! Next thing you know I eat some fried chicken tenders for dinner and put on 6 pounds overnight. By the time of weigh-in next week I'm back up to 373. I could just cry. I was finally down a week and a half ago to 366 and then ate ice cream, now I'm back up again to 374. Why can't I just get out of the 370's and stay there??? Why am I sabotoging myself? I really want to lose this weight and yet I keep making mistakes. I know I should give myself credit for starting over, but I shouldn't have to in the first place!
I'm thinking about rewarding myself once I get down below 365 and stay there for a couple of weeks. I'm thinking a pedicure for the end of sandal season. I have ugly, dry feet and having them massaged and my toenails painted would be a nice change. I live on a limited budget so this could be just the thing I need to get me going. OK 360's here I come and I don't plan on staying long. I want down below 350. Then we'll figure out another reward. Pedicure here I come!!
