I've been down the past week or so, due to PMS then TOM and not seeing the weight loss because of water retention. I felt like I was failing, felt like I wasn't doing enough.
TOM is winding down and I am shedding the water weight, so soon I will be back to my lowest and hopefully below 230 by the end of next week. Yay me!
I looked at my weight loss ticker and saw I've lost 21.2 lbs since April. That's awesome! I shouldn't feel bad about that at ALL!
I still haven't been back to the doctor (my appt is April 17th), but when I do, I'm going to ask if they can tell me what my highest weight on their scale was, so I can adjust my ticker to that. But I DID check my Wii Fit this morning and my highest on there was 275, so for now it's accurate. But I happen to know that the doc's office scale is more accurate and that it's 4 lbs higher than my Wii Fit scale. (I track my weight using my Wii Fit on Spark People, since that's the only home scale I have.) If that's true, and I was 279 at my highest, that means I've lost 44.2 lbs total, and that's AMAZING!
So I shouldn't mope and be cranky because I haven't lost rapidly in the last couple of weeks, because I am AWESOME and doing things RIGHT! And I'm still losing, it's just hidden under all that water.
So I'm back on the happy train as of today. (Honestly I think most of it was hormones making me crazy, plus my boss has been really depressed lately because of a horrible divorce and it's rubbing off on everyone.)
I promise as soon as I get below 230 I will definitely be posting update progress pics. =)
Have a fantastic day everyone!
