FINALLY!

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

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.

    It seems like its a pattern for your weight loss--you'll do everything right forever and not lose, then one day out of the blue, you start dropping again. So excited the scale moved down. Fingers crossed for tomorrow's weigh in.

    I remember you were going to change a sweetner that you were using and see if that made a difference? Did it, you think? I'm glad the scale moved a bit for you!! Yes, it can be disheartening when it doesn't, especially when you know you've been doing all of the "right" things. I'm learning my body goes through periods when it's "regrouping" I guess you could say, getting used to the new habits, and then I'll start losing again. Let us know how the happy light is!

    Let us know how your happy light works for you. I, too, take spells of not being as sociable on the blogs and pages. One of the things I enjoy here is the feeling that we all respect each others idiosyncrasies.
Here's hoping you have a GREAT Valentine's Day, no matter what the scale tries to tell you!

    I'm sorry you've felt a bit down lately. I hope the light therapy helps. Be sure to give it a few days to really kick in.

    emoticon Sometimes it takes the scale a little longer to "get with the program". Despite all of your efforts, they just aren't reflected there. I'm glad it's finally cooperating with you today.
