6lbs down this week!

Friday, April 19, 2013

Just a small update- I had my second weigh-in yesterday, my first since starting this plan, and I lost 6 lbs last week! I realise that could mostly be water weight, but I was shocked! Especially since I had the odds stacked against me with having PMS (Sorry to any dudes reading this. Maybe I should have had a "lady bits speak" spoiler alert...) and being sick (a pretty bad cold/sinus infection), but I managed to stay mostly on track and didn't give in to any cravings for junk food. I do realise that I won't lose this much every week, but it was a nice jump start to keep me inspired!

I feel sort of futile posting about my weight this week with everything that's been going on in Boston. It is a city that holds a very dear place in my heart, one of my favorite places I've ever been. I spent quite a bit of time there in my teen years, going to concerts or just walking around Harvard Square or getting food at Fanual Hall (Pizzeria Regina, nomnomnom). I have quite a few friends and family members that live and work there, and they were all fortunate enough to not be harmed on Monday. I have only heard from one of them today so far, though. She heard the explosives last night, and is currently still in lockdown. It's always horrifying when something like this happens, but I find this especially scary since it hits so close to home. One thing I can say is that I've never been more proud to be a New Englander than I have this week. I think our true colors have brightly shown in the way all the police officers, firefighters, ambulances, civilians, and everyone else that didn't even think twice to run directly into the sights of the bombings so they could help the injured, and how cooperative they've been staying off the streets and allowing their homes to be searched willingly. I thought the memorial yesterday was beautiful as well. My thoughts and prayers are with anyone touched by this. Hopefully the situation with be resolved very soon and without any more injuries or lives lost.

    Congrats on the the big loss! You have the right attitude on it, won't happen every week, but it's a great way to start!

Also, your lives have to go on, no matter what is happening around us. Celebrate the things that should be celebrated! Otherwise, life is just one big tragedy.
