As some of you know I spent a week in Portugal with my students who study wine. We had an amazing weather and the visits were really interesting.
I was worried the all time because I did not get much exercise and ate basically rice and chicken, pastries and drank wine the whole time.
I was sure I'd put on at least 3 pounds so I didn't even weight myself when I came back.
Well I still don't know how much I weight but my pants are still loose and when I went shopping i had to buy a smaller size!!!
Last but not least, I was chatting with a co-worker who said I'd really lost a ton of weight since I came here (last year) and when I told her about my goal weight (118 pounds) she said I'd be really too skinny. SHe is really thin and she is 4 KG heavier than my goal weight, and I have big bones. So since my goal weight is the lowest I can medically be I figured I should maybe weight a bit more and settle for a healthy 127 pounds for my 5 feet 4 frame
I am often told I put too much pressure on myself and I think I just realized how true it is.
I am now setting for a new goal: be kind to myself and reward myself for little victories such as buying smaller size pants.
I just did, ordered a LOT of Kusmi Tea boxes!!! (I am addicted to good tea)
