Monthly bloat

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Hm, another negatively-toned blog entry. Oh, well. The reason for tis one is because I feel bloated and pretty sure the scale isn't going to go down this week for my Monday weigh-in. I went to a potluck where I pretty much pigged out (within my points range, but that was estimated). Since then I've felt bloated, which isn't helped by Aunt Flo (when will she come already?? I need to keep better track.)

On a more positive note, I had an absolutely awesome run yesterday. I definitely got the runner's high and felt so powerful and energetic. When I got back home I continued to blast my music and was super energetic all night - but today I felt so tired! I forced myself to run 4 miles today, and am going to hopefully be able to do some exercise tomorrow morning. However, I do consider myself re-addicted to running, which is great, except I need to be careful of my knees and feet and not overdo it too much right now. It's very tempting to make that my only form of exercise, since I pretty much despise all other forms of physical activity, but that's not very practical.

I'm also at that weird stage of weight loss - pretty much halfway through - where my clothes don't fit me very well. I have a bunch of clothes that are too big for me, and a bunch of clothes too small from me (saved from my last weight loss success). So, I'm basically wearing shirts that are way baggy on me, and my jeans are just strange-looking on me. I keep hinting at people to nominate me for What Not to Wear when I lose all my weight, but I"m not even sure that show exists anymore :-)

Oh, my last weigh - in is below...Monday's will follow.

Week 7: 128.8

    Hi Bravelute,

    I'm not quite at maintenance yet, but already thinking about how it will be. I definitely plan on packing up some of the impractically baggy stuff...I do not plan on being that big again. Thanks for the encouragement! By the way I love the harp!!! I work at a hospital and a harpist (?) plays in the waiting room and I love the sound.

    You'll feel better if you pack up the baggy stuff. And put on something that shows you off.

    And if you're in this for life this time, bless someone else with the clothes that are too big. Move em on out!! Maybe a slimmer closet will help to motivate you.

    It looks like you are very close to goal. Congratulations. It is going to happen!! Again. For the last time!!

    Are you looking at maintenance already?
