I allowed myself 2.5 seconds of disappointment when the scale didn't read 269 this morning like I had hoped. I've been watching my Macros, eating the right foods, drinking H2O like crazy AND doing some light dumbbell workouts. The weight has been coming off, slowly, and in the right direction. So, I was sure I would be seeing 269 this morning.
Its ok I told myself. Because I will hit that number this week. I am currently 270.5 pounds and just over a half pound away from that 269. I'm using this "disappointment" as motivation.
It is within me, in all of us, to reach our weight loss goals. Some can do it all alone, some need a little help and support, and others need more. I prefer going on this journey with all of you because I know that if I come to a road block my family here on Sparkpeople will more than likely have an answer for me - say the right words to pull me out of a funk.
In my defense... I had some water and last nights dinner in me. I know, but its true. Doctors all over the world will tell you that you need to have regular "movements" .. you know what I'm saying. To clean your system out. I've been struggling there for a couple weeks. But going out today to buy more foods that will help with that.
I will say last nights dinner was DEE-LISH! The chicken is grilled with Cholula Hot Sauce on it.
and this mornings breakfast. 1 cup Plain Greek yogurt and 1 fiber cereal bar crumbled on top!
I switch it up with oatmeal, Whole Grain Hot Cereal from Bob Mills with light unsweetened Almond milk, Omelette with egg substitute with spinach and a dollop of avocado, Fiber One Cereal,etc. Nothing new from what everyone is eating, but I sometimes add my own spin on things or adopt something I've read. For instance, I may add 1/4 cup whole instant rolled oats in my egg mixture for added fiber and good carbs as well as a nice texture. Topped off with a small amount of low fat cheese and red onions.
So thats this morning... in Chicago. Its 8:11am... I'm off today. Yaaay. Looking for a new job - I will say that I feel like my weight has been hurting me. People LOVE me over the phone.. impressed with my resume skills and references yet when I come in for a face to face interview and even if I'm feeling great and dressed well - I get these looks. Its even worse when everyone at that company looks fit and attractive. BUT, I keep moving forward.
Disappointment is a given. I use it to fuel me to push through these moments in Life because I know one day I WILL get my dream job and it will be one of the happiest days of my life!
Love you all, and thank you for all the support.
