I took a full week off of work last week and did NOTHING. No trips, no family visits, no spa appointments - just a week of resting. It was heaven.
As I stepped on the scale and realized I am 5 pounds from my halfway mark, I think I just about did a cheer in my bathroom, complete with splits. I didn't think I'd be here so soon. Somewhere in the recesses of my mind, that little Jerk who spews negative thoughts at me still lingers and says that I'll never get there. She's wrong. She's a jerk. She's not 100% gone yet, but her bags are packed and she's almost out the door.
The fact that I'm here and am almost at 40 pounds of weight lost hasn't quite sunk in yet. It feels like a dream. Like....I've read other people's posts and blogs who are at this point and I thought "I can't wait to be there!"....and here I am.
IP - you have some nasty tasting food, but you work for me. I've found the things that click for me and I'll keep doing them until those 80 pounds are GONE, baby!!!
