When I got on the scale this morning, I was not expecting much. I've been fluctuating the same 2 lbs for a full month, and it is the second day of my TOM. I hadn't slept well last night or the night before, and while my weekend wasn't bad, it wasn't amazing either. So what I saw shocked me. I weighed myself again just in case, and this time it was even LOWER. 200.4!
I have been so discouraged these past several weeks that I was losing hope. I was dreading my doctor's appointment on the 21st, because I'd have only lost 3 lbs in 2 months. On my last doctor visit, I was 205.5. I still have more than a week until the next one, and hopefully I can get below 200 and stay there by then! My current goal is to be 199.9 by Feb 14th. That means 1/2 a pound in 2 days. It might happen, it might not, but I'm not going to stress about it. I AM, however, going to push 30DS to Thursday after weighing-in, so I know I'm not retaining any water from that workout. I'm going to stick to lower impact cardio and some weights, just in case.
Btw, while I haven't been perfect about staying off the scale, not weighing in every day has definitely helped me by not defining my day.
Also, my happy light just got here! I can't wait to use it tomorrow and report on how I'm feeling. It was fairly sunny this weekend and we took Bingley out for a nice trip to the dog park, which was chock full of HUGGGGGE dogs and MUD. -_- So guess who got a bath as soon as we got home?
Anyway just wanted to check in and report. I want to let you all know that I still am reading every one of your blogs, I have just been a little down lately and haven't been commenting as much.
