Another 2lbs?!

Sunday, May 20, 2012

We were setting up the wii fit last night, we've had it for a while but had not used it since we had to get a new wii system (and reset all our data). So I weighed myself on the wii fit ...


What the!?! I weighed myself on Thursday and I was 222. How did I lose 2lbs in 2 days? I seriously didn't believe it, so my husband ran up to get the bathroom scale. Sure enough, 220.0 on the bathroom scale! I weighed again this morning just to be sure!! 220.0 it is!

I was elated!!! I have been really working hard this week on eating and getting out and moving. Now that I had to reset my program here on sparkpeople, I am staying in my target calorie range, hitting my fitness goals.

Can I confess that I didn't think SP would work. I mean so many other times I have tried to change and it didn't work. I just thought this would be another one ya know?

Josh and I went to bed and we were talking about it and I realized that this time it is so different than before. I'm not looking for the quick fix this time. I'm not looking for a miracle.

I'm putting in the work. I'm putting in the sacrifice and I FEEL GOOD about it!! I'm making good decisions about food (although, I'll tell you it was really hard to NOT eat a triple double oreo last night when my husband brought them home). I'm measuring food, and drinking lots of water.

My husband is seriously the most wonderful man in the world. He's so supportive (despite the triple double oreos) and has been so wonderful in my obsessing over calories and he patiently listens to me when I talk through my food choices for the day.

I'm a little nervous about today. I have a wonderful day planned beginning with worshiping with my church family, then a potluck with the military ministry and finally a baby shower at my wonderful friend Jen's house. I'm bringing the fruits and veggies for the baby shower lol, so I know there will be lots of good stuff there!!

I have a hard time with control at potlucks and showers. I will do my best to stay within my guidelines for the day.

I realized when I woke up this morning that Thursday when I weighed myself I was one day post TOM for me. So I'm guessing the remaining 2lbs that I've lost since then were water weight :P But it's 2lbs less than I was on Thursday and 220 on the scale looks pretty good to me.

    Congrats on the two pounds lost girlie!! Yay for you and praising God for your dedication to choosing a healthy lifestyle from the inside out!

    I love Jodi's comment to move away from the buffet table. I might add "step away from the table, and your waist line won't get hurt!"

    Way to go! I hope the potluck went well. Jodi had some great ideas for surviving a potluck.
    You should be so proud of yourself!

    If you just continue to make intentionally right choices it will reflect on the scale in time. You're on your way to success! It happens one step at a time!

    emoticon emoticon How will you celebrate this success in a healthy way? Manicure, quiet getaway to enjoy your book, or...? Weight can flucate but it is still important to celebrate the milestones to help keep us motivated in the long haul.
    Potlucks are hard and I still struggle, some hints: pick a small plate and only allow yourself 1 trip and throw the plate away (this makes me survey and really pick what I want to eat not just piling it on), fill your hands with cold water and keep drinking, once you've eaten move away from the buffet line (resist temptation). Rejoicing with your progress and keep up the good work!
