Well the scale didn't error me this morning. It looked up at me and said, congratulations. You're at 382.2. I am down 1.8 pounds since Thursday. I am going to not worry about weighing myself again until next Monday but it's nice to know something is changing. Almost six months ago I entered a weight loss competition at work. I switched away from regular soda, starting watching my calories and would just eat kettle corn at my desk because of the low calories and fullness factor. I got my weight down to 369 at that time. I was so amazed. Right now I'm just happy I took control before I hit the 400 mark again. That's one number I never plan to see again.
I did some interesting things today. I found some cute little motivational pictures and put them up on Walgreens to turn them into a collage. I made an 8x10 and a 4x6. I'm going to put the 4x6 up in my car so when I head places I will always see what I'm working for. And I'm going to put one up at home for motivation while I am there.
I spent today looking at all kinds of different recipes so tomorrow after Texas Roadhouse, I think hubby and I will be heading to Wal Mart and maybe Whole Foods to get ingredients for all my new recipes to try over the weekend. I'm off on Thursday-Saturday. This way we can figure out what we like, don't like.
I'm nervous about my weekend, because we tend to go out to eat a lot but I am going to work really hard to make sure it does not happen. I also plan to start taking my dog Bailey for a walk. Right now he just runs in the back yard when he wants exercise and that is not fair to either one of us. I also have hundreds of pedometers laying around. It's time to strap one of those on now, or find an app on my phone.
I have lots of things to think about this weekend. One of my goals is to make sure to update my blog daily. I think by taking the time to write out what's going in my head, it helps me to really think about what I'm going to do. For example, if I want to eat an ice cream cone, I'll have to tell you guys about it. Is it worth it to admit to you that I've slipped up? It is not. Instead I'll have a lower calorie ice cream and brag about how I've been meeting my calories every day!
Thank you to everyone who keeps responding. I love how active everyone is on this site.
