Bits and Pieces

Sunday, July 21, 2013

Today I am thankful...
1. That I only have 90 pounds left to lose. I try to focus on the small goals since the big picture can seem daunting, but today I realized that I have 90 pounds left to lose. When I started and it was 154 pounds, that number seemed quite scary. It was quite scary. 90 is a much better number.
2. That I had a great Pilates workout today. Whoo Hoo!
3. That it is raining and not nearly so hot.

Positive experience:
Spending the day with my darling nieces and nephews...ages 6, 23 months, and 10 months. They are a handful but they are so wonderful.

Random stuff:
I wasn't in ketosis this morning, not really sure why. Perhaps too many carbs in the yogurt I used in my tzatziki? That's OK, I've lost 9 pounds since I decided to tighten up my low carb eating 2 weeks ago, so I am totally happy.

About 6 weeks ago I bought some new outfits because my old ones were literally falling off of me. I give away everything as I get too small for it. I feel like they are just bad juju encouraging me to go back to my old ways, and I have to get rid of them. Anyway, my new clothes are already getting too big for me. I don't have to unzip or unbutton my pants when I go to the restroom. It's very convenient! Well I can't afford to replace them right now so I guess I'm going to invest in a belt :)

Hope everyone has an amazing Sunday!

    Girl?? Are you sure you have 90lbs to lose?? Cuz you don't look like you have 90 to lose to me.. regardless.. it's interesting how the mind will shift our perspective eh? In the past I had a lot of experience with negative shifts.. but today? today, our mind is working WITH us not against us.. it's a good feeling..

    For me, there wasn't a "click".. was there a "click" for you? mine grew slowly each day I stuck to my eating plan.. each day I showed up and worked out.. it was like building a foundation of belief.. a foundation of "yes, I can and I will" rather than continuing the "I'll never be able to do this" thinking I was used to..

    90lbs!!! Here you come!
