With all the stress in my life lately it's been a struggle to start my diet and get the weight starting to come off. I've been able to do it with the help of everyone here at SP. Last Saturday, my grandma finally passed. It's a relief for her but she leaves behind a LOT of people who loved her. I drove the 400 miles home Saturday to be with them while we laid her to rest.
I was fully aware of what I was going to face going into this (I didn't get overweight just after I left home, it's been a lifelong process) so it didn't surprise me when we didn't eat even 1 meal cooked at home. There were very few veggies in sight that weren't covered in sour cream, cheese, or mayonnaise in some form or another. I did find a fresh veggie tray at the church after the funeral. But then again, it wasn't very big...imagine your smallest dinner plate and then cut it in half. I overate...I know I did. But I also know I ate less than what I would have eaten had this happened before I started on this site.
So this morning, I braced myself to find that I had gained a couple pounds. I stepped on the scale to find that my weight was the same as it was last Wednesday. Overall, I have lost 23.8 pounds. I can live with that since I had expected the worst. I have nowhere to go but down and I know I'm going to get it done. I have 8.5 pounds to lose by the end of May to hit my first goal of being under 300 by the end of the school year.
I'm hitting the school's workout room today after the last bell and I'm gonna get back on track.
