Day 18 - Down another 1.2 pounds
Saturday, January 19, 2013
Yesterday was a pretty good day. Ate within calories, drank water, and got in a walk. I weighted in this morning and lost 1.2 pounds last week. MTD weight loss per week below (but I think the first week is 2 pounds too generous).
Week 1: -4.2
Week 2: -3.0
Week 3: -1.2
I had a fair week last week for performance and I ended up with a fair weight loss. I earned that. Nothing more.
My son started swimming lessons last week. He really enjoys it. This morning he asked me if I’d go with him into the adult pool. Now the reality is that I can’t do that since we don’t have a membership we’ve just paid for his classes, but it was a little sad. At my weigh I really don’t feel like I should go swimming with him. I don’t want the other kids to make fun of him and I don’t want to embarrass myself. I also realized that I probably never will be able to wear a swimsuit without making him embarrassed. Even if I lose all of the weight, I will have tons of lose skin or scares from skin surgery. It was a bit sad, but realistic. I did this to myself. It is stupid to think there are no consequences.
Ironically, this the visualization this evening the SpartCoach was:
Today, visualize yourself walking along a beach, wearing a bathing suit and feeling zero discomfort or shyness about showing off your body that you've worked so hard for. Your confidence is high, and you're not even thinking about your body; you're simply enjoying the moment.
I can't visualize this.
