This is my time... and I'm going to do it!
For once, this is the most motivated I've EVER been. I've made the mini goal of trying to be down 120 lbs by Christmas... I am at 118.5 and tomorrow is the big day. I've been VERY good... even WITH the parties at work. I MAY not make my goal... but wow, I'm close! Do I want a cookie? Sort of. Do I have cookies? Yeah. It's nearly Christmas! I mean, c'mon! BUT... I WANT THIS. I want to see if I could do this... and I'm trying HARD to do it. It is 4:24 pm lol I can do this... Tomorrow, I'll weigh in... I'll either hit it... or I won't... but what I won't do is I won't say that I didn't try! And I WILL be proud of myself. And, I'll probably have a cookie! LOL
Okay, let's see... I have the day planned out... I do have some sweets planned. I did take a baggie in to work to take some cookies and a few candies (ONE baggie... a husband, a teenage boy and myself)... we are sharing. I didn't eat it at the party... so I am even proud of myself for that, too! ALL to get me to my goal tomorrow. I got one of those little Chinese take-out boxes of some type of cookie made by a co-worker... it went straight into the freezer... that'll come out... we may try some of those, too. Anyway, we are having turkey bacon and egg white scramble with vegetables... my green tea... a greek yogurt... (of course, my lemon water in the morning)... Not too sure what I'll eat for lunch... but it will probably be a lean protein and some vegetables... Dinner is Salmon, green bean casserole, small smashed baked potatoes and roasted carrots... not too bad... and for desert, we are having some chai bread pudding... Not perfect, but it's Christmas... and then Christmas is over and it's back to the plan... and back to the next goal.
I joined a contest at work... the Turkey Buster Challenge... as of now, I'm in the lead with a 17.4 lb loss (since after Thanksgiving)... and it ends on January 9th. The way I see it is that I'm only going to lose this weight once. Therefore, I feel that I should win this contest! LOL It's pretty simple, really... I won't be able to enter this contest next year or the year after, because, I'll be at goal and won't be able to win then, right?
Another thing I'm doing... and I'm sure it sounds totally ridiculous (it probably is)... but for Christmas... I asked my husband to buy me clothes in my goal size... size 10/12. How risky is that? I'm only in size 14/16 tops and 18/20 bottoms now. I must be insane, but I just don't see wasting the money... plus, I see it as incentive for me to get into those clothes and it just keeps me on track... so the ONLY item of clothing I will be opening tomorrow is a nightshirt in current size, because all my nightshirts are falling off my shoulders now lol
Never, EVER, have I been this goal oriented and determined... it feels amazing... I feel like another woman! I'm loving it!
