I was so dreading today. I have been on vacation for a little over a week. I was NOT good. I was not in control with food that was offered or time of day that we ate. I did not have access to a gym or exercise equipment. I was so busy I did not even have time to take a walk all week. I was extremely stressed on vacation as I was with my parents and siblings and we were not getting along due to the circumstances. My plan was to do the best I could at choosing foods that would work for me, skip the snacks that I knew would be offered.
I had planned on doing a "pre weigh in" day yesterday just to brace myself as to the amount of weight GAINED. I woke up late and had to run out the door to get to an appointment. I just knew that was another sign that today we be an expected disappointment.
Well, I am happy to report that I was totally wrong. I am down half a pound. I realize half a pound is not much. But if you had seen the foods I experienced last week and the stress levels that have left me with canker sores in my mouth and headaches every day you would understand my excitement. I am going to happily take my half a pound and work even harder this week to keep it away!!
I am treating myself to a couple of new shirts today, a size smaller!! Another happy goal completed.
