T minus 5

Saturday, November 17, 2012

My dinner last night was AWESOME! It was so good. I hadn't eaten that well in weeks!
But the scale was really down this morning (142 lbs). I don't think I'm going to track it on my Ticker, however, since it's a foreign scale. But I'm feeling good about seeing such a low number. It decreases the anxiety about Thanksgiving binging dramatically!

I'm not anticipating too many challenges today. It should be a pretty laid back day. Since I ate a pretty heavy meal last night I'm not planning to eat anything heavy today.
I'll be hopefully visiting some local Farmer Markets to get fresh Fall produce to munch on! And I'll be going shopping (need some new bras and gonna look for sales on jeans).

Highlights: I'm getting ready to go for a hike at one of my favorite trails! I lost the bulk of my weight by going to this one particular trail almost every day. I have a lot of memories from there--- I ran for the first time outside on that trail. It's going to be an emotional experience to visit this place that held such a significance in my weight loss journey.

Lowlights: I'm not experiencing any lowlights at this particular time! I slept well last night. Drank some good coffee this morning. The weather here in Dayton, Ohio is gorgeous (I love Northern Fall weather!!). I'm feeling great this morning and looking forward to a great day!

    Wow, maybe you should get a new scale at home? You've registered lower weights on 2 different foreign scales. You definitely look a lot thinner.

That hike sounds so awesome. I always get nostalgic when I see my old stationary bike.... I cycled away 150 lbs. on that machine! It broke, and I've since replaced it, but I kept the seat.

Happy shopping, hope you find a lot of skinny jeans!

    It's good to hear you are staying on track. I doubt you will overeat as you have a great mind-set. You can eat everything, just not as much and enjoy it.
