Well, here it is, Monday and I am pleased to say, there seems to be no water weight from that salt cooked Salmon on Saturday. I have to admit that this has really surprised me! Probably just fluky but whatever the reason, I am happy about that.
It is raining today, a hard downpour of rain! It is coming down so hard that I can barely see the house next door! Wow! Yesterday was rainy too, but a drizzly sort of rain. It is supposed to rain for another few days. Blah, sure doesn't feel like summer right now.
So I have no guilty feelings to sit inside and paint after I get my few chores cleared away for the day.
I have drafted out another cat in the garden picture, perhaps I will make it a series, I am not sure. I have 4 now with cats and flowers of some sort, influence of my own cat and gardens, I suppose. Two subjects I see often, so I know them better than most other things is a possiblity as well. I just follow where my brain and heart leads when it comes to paintings.
It has been pretty quiet around the house for a few days, not really unusual, but I am really noticing it right now. Not sure why...
Well that s a couple of unsure things, time to say some sure things, don't you think?
I AM going to be down on wednesday! I sneaked on the scale this morning, and I am already down. Just have to stay away from that darn salt!
I am staying strong with my willpower and drive to stay on track. Yay!
I am tracking foods and exercise everyday. Yay! 47 days in a row...! It really does help to have the tracker as my home page when I open internet explorer. I find it a little bit annoying when I am researching something, but I am dealing with that as the benefits of being reminded all the time to track is working real well!
My clothes ARE fitting better....even though I saw that awful picture of me yesterday. I have given away several articles of favorite clothes because they are too big to wear now. I don't want them hanging around waiting for me to grow into them AGAIN. No mercy, no excuses.
I called my doc in the city this morning to see if I can find out anything about when my surgery will be, but as luck will have it, they are closed today. I left a message at their prompt so that they will get back to me within the next couple days. Best I can do. I have put that call off for over a month now, so it is a positive that I have done it lol
It is shopping day this week...I have a list written out as always, but this time, I vow I will only get what is on my list. No extras, and no chips! I find those little fellows are dancing in my head after the little taste at the Potluck Saturday. Hopefully by wednesday shopping those little devils will have danced themselves out of my mind. I don't usually have trouble with this, I guess it was just that tease of a taste!
I am regaining more energy by the day, and that feels real good.
Overall, I am in a very positive frame of mind and will get the weight off. I love the feeling of clothes getting too big and I enjoy saying good bye to clothes I have lived in.. Some of those clothes were from times before I lost weight and regained it back, and I sort of felt that they hung onto the way I felt when I was wearing them. The unhappiness, the belief that nothing will ever change, the unhealthy image of me in my mind when I was MUch larger...I am throwing all that out when I give away those clothes. I am turning over a new leaf to a new healthier me and need to ingrain that into my mind and my heart...erasing away all those inadequate feellings I harbored in the past.
How are you feeling today? Are you feeling positive about yourself?
Have one terrific day everyone!
