Turns out I have a 2 hr layover here in DfW, so I've got some time on my hands.
The flight here was nice and smooth. The plane is tiny, and only has 3 seats per row. It is the most uncomfortable part of flying out of Waco, always. Since I am flying solo this time, I got the single seat on the left side. Last year, I was miserable in these.
Today I just want to say that my thighs stayed in my seat! Before, they were so huge that they would push the armrest up, and I'd feel totally disgusting.
I am not proud of that, but I share it with you guys to show how far I've become, and to remind myself that is not me anymore! And I don't want that to be me ever again.
Now, on the next flight, I have no choice but to sit next to strangers. With my personal space issues, I am interested in seeing how the flight goes. I don't like touching people in general. I'm ok w/hugs between family and freinds, and I have no problem feeling all over my husband. When it comes to crowds, planes, etc, though, it really bothers me when my ams brush other people, or legs touch, etc. even larger flights were uncomfortable for me because I tried to keep myself as small as possible for hours, trying to keep my arms from touching people.
I am still large, but I have lost INCHES off my arms, and I have high hopes for this flight.
I weighed in at 205.2 this morning. I will be my last weigh-in until Tues. I will try not to be neurotic about it and go crazy. My weight has been fluctuating pretty wildly between 203 and 206 lately, so I am ok with today's weigh in. I'm 205, which is where I wanted to be at this convention. It's hard to think about how close I am to being under 200 because it makes me really excited, but I know it's going to take another month. Lol
Today, I had my shake at like 4:30 because I am used to eating as soon as I get up. It's thrown everything off! It feels like it's almost lunch time, and it's only 7:30! There was this dude sitting here eating the world's most delicious-smelling sandwich from Au Bon Pain. It made me sad, because I wanted one, but I didn't want the calories. Instead, I hit up Starbucks for some caffeine to curb my hunger until lunch. I got a grande skinny vanilla latte. They are advertised at 120 cal. I can swing that! I'm not a fan of the sugar-free syrups, but this isn't bad. I think a tall would have been enough, though.. And probably half the calories! Oh well.. Next time!
When I get to Atlanta, my freind is going to pick me up and take me to the FIRST Chik fil a. Lol. Apparently it's a wacky 24-hr diner that also sells regular Chik-fil-A food. Not sure what my food choices will be there, but I'm not sweating it. I already win because I resisted a second breakfast. I feel like I can handle anything today!
