Scaling Back Down
Friday, April 05, 2013
This morning the scale read 155.
I was relieved.
For an entire day my mind was on nothing but the threat of 160lbs. I literally felt like my entire world was crashing down on me.
Moving forward I will pay more attention to what I put in my mouth. Bathing suit season is right around the corner and my goal is to be toner, not fatter.
I felt a little better after I went out yesterday and bought a new dress. A ten was a smidge tight. I know it is bad but I told myself I was going to lose 4lbs before the wedding on Saturday. (insane, right, but possible, if I eat less and move more) Yesterday I consumed under a 1000 calories and walked all day. Not necessarily to exercise but I stayed on my feet, cleaning, shopping, for 12 hours only stopping to eat and drive. This morning I woke up and the scale was 5 lbs less. The scale was either messing with me or I lost 5lbs in a day. If I can handle it today, I will be good to go. I know that this is an awful way to come back but I think I need the kick in the A!#.
For the next two days I am buckling down on my nutrition and fitness then Monday I can readjust my eating habits to what they were before I goofed, even a little more stringent since my stomach should be smaller and ready to handle smaller portions of food.
My ultimate goal is 146. At 155 I have 9 lbs to go. I was almost there before at 153 before my goof.
I worry that eating under 1000 calories again today would make me suffer later, but I need this cleansing. Kind of like the two day leek diet I was on but without the leeks. yuk!
I can do this. I am on my way to trim and thin. If you asked me a year ago I would never have believed I would have come this far.
When I started Sparkpeople I used to read the success stories and only wish I had the motivation and determination to do what they have done.
Well here I am.
On the home stretch.
9 more pounds to go.
Lets do this.
