This feels too good to be true

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

I am dumbfounded by my weight loss. 15.6 pounds in 10 days. Seriously, this can't be happening. At Christmas?
I'm hesitant to say it. I don't want to jinx myself, but this feels effortless.
I know I've been at this point before, where the weight just sheds off, I have no appetite, and I wonder what I did to deserve this.
But...I also know this is a short ride and I'd better enjoy it while it lasts.
A couple things have triggered this round of losses. I had a stomach virus last week where everything just went right through me. I had to take Immodium daily...UGH. I also saw my doctor on the 4th and she discussed putting me on new medication for my diabetes. It takes a while to sink in, but I always try to get my act together so they won't give me more meds.
The losses are definitely motivating...I just need to be aware that it's not going to stay like this much longer. So I'll take it for what it's worth.
I'm definitely motivated to make a much smaller Christmas dinner this year. More dishes, but we will have few leftovers. Ack! It will be my first time ever making a smaller dinner and my family will complain. Oh well.

    Sorry, I am now stuck with the following line from The Devil Wears Prada:
"I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight"

    It is a fantastic achievement at this time of the year. Whatever the reason, take it and let it motivate you.

Well done!

    This is what happened to me last year..We all got a stomach bug the end of November. Courtesy of the Grandsons school, where it was going around. But mine of course lasted a full 10 days...everyone else about 3 - 5 days. But, I lost 13 lbs. from November 27 to Jan 3. My husband gained about the same amount! emoticon

But I was on my best behavior throughout the cookie or sweet a day, skipping bread at restaurants, limit myself to one carb a meal.. emoticon and was pleased with the results!

So live it while you can! Healthy emoticon eating is the way to do the Holidays right! Enjoy!
