It's a New Week!
Sunday, January 23, 2011
Got up to some fantastic news today on the scale. I'm -DOWN- 1.2 pounds! It seems like I've done more gaining than losing since New Years, which is kind of upsetting, but I'm not letting it get to me. Shit happens.
This week, however, is going to be different. I plan on spending a lot more time dinking around on SparkPeople. Last week I completely zoned and only did what was necessary (mainly logged in and spun the wheel) and therefore completely forgot that I had joined a Biggest Loser Challenge for one of the groups I belong to. [facepalm] So, this week is going to be different. I will be logging in daily and actually checking out at least THAT thread.
The weight loss for the week has really sparked my motivation because all I did was cut down on what I ate, rather than forbid myself to have certain foods.
I've been reading the book "Skinny Bitch" and already thoroughly recommend it to anyone who needs a slap in the face when it comes to what you shove in your face. I'm about three chapters in. Think it's the furthest I've ever gotten into a non-fiction book, especially one about weightloss/nutrition. This is like a HUGE letter from your best friend telling you to wake the hell up... and it's something I truly needed. Not sure if I wanna go vegan (which is what the book is talking about), but I'm taking the information they're giving and going from there.
Excited about tomorrow. I'm going to the dentist (yeah, dentist and I'm excited) to get my teeth fixed after years of drinking Pepsi. I have cavities that are eating my front teeth apart, and, after a year of having no insurance, I finally get the chance to have them fixed. I'm super excited because I finally can smile without feeling subconscious. Plus, I'm not afraid of the dentist whatsoever. I had ALL of my baby teeth pulled (they wouldn't fall out on their own), my wisdom teeth cut out, and three AGONIZING years of braces. Dentists don't bother me at all.
So... here's to a great week! Hope you all meet your goals, and then some!
