One Week Back

Monday, December 03, 2012

So, I'm back on the wagon for a whole week now...tracking food and exercise. I honestly did not realize (or maybe I just forgot) just how many calories I could consume in one meal! Breakfast and lunch is fairly routine...oatmeal or cereal for breakfast...a TV dinner (Lean Cuisine) for lunch...but it's going out to dinner that really throws me out of whack! I really have to work on my choices! Aaarrggghhh!!!

Anywho...I had re-listed my weight (starting over) as 262. But I did not weigh in on that Monday morning that I put it in...I when I weighed on Tuesday morning it was 265. Another Aarrgghh! So, it has been one week as of today and I am down to the 262. Which is great...except I wanted to move the ticker! Silly, I know. Childish, I know. Selfish, I know. But, just the moving of the ticker is a big thing to me...especially when it's going DOWN!

I use to be soooo self conscious about telling anyone my weight. Now...I don't really care. I'm fat. I know it...anyone looking at me knows best friends second cousin twice removed probably knows it. Vanity has never really been in my vocabulary...maybe it should be...but not after 35 years of marriage, two children, stress, depression,!! You kinda get the picture. And, vanity is not what prompted me to get back on the wagon! My health is what kicked me in the behind and said, "DO SOMETHING!! NOW!!!"

So, I will celebrate my 3 pound weight loss and be ecstatically happy!!! Even if I can't move my ticker.

    Try getting online and checking out the menu before you go out. That way you can figure out the best choices without getting too caught up in the moment.
