Day 75: Home stretch!
Monday, June 03, 2013
Hi! So I had a three days where I probably went over my calories. Well, one where I know I did. I was upset with myself. I tried on those jeans that started it all and they were still tight. I was so mad, and frustrated, and freaking WHATEVER after all this work and all this attention to not have made a difference. I just said forget it and probably went 300 cals over my limit.
That was probably last Wednesday. Then on Thursday was my oldest daughter's high school graduation (I know right? How old am I???). I tried tracking but I'm not sure if I was really as careful as I could have been. And then there was yesterday. I might have gone over. I didn't track carefully, because I was on the verge of giving up.
But I am NOT giving up. I have fifteen days left. I'm still working out every day. I'm going to stay under 1600 calories for the next 15 days. I'm going out with a BANG on this and I'm going to feel good about myself!
I loved that I got to wear my dress the other week. I felt really good in it. I'm going to wear it again when I go on my celebration date on the 21st or 22nd. I'm going to get my nails done. I'm going to get some fake tanner. I'm going to have a fun night enjoying myself and my figure and who I am and what I have accomplished in my 39 years on this earth so far, and I'm going to feel beautiful and I'm going to have fun and I'm going to just be ME.
So that's where I am. I'm sorry I haven't written much. I want you to know I haven't given up, even though I got close. I'm still here. And the funny thing is, I'm sure I'm going to keep at this. I believe that this is a calorie range I need to stick in just to maintain where I am. Sometimes I dream about getting liposuction or something, just to get rid of some of this excess garbage around my middle, but with my luck I would die in surgery and be headline news for my vanity. So I won't!
Ok everybody. Have a wonderful first week of June! I'm sure going to!
