200.2 Pounds!

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

So I weighed in and I'm down to 200.2! The 100's is eluding me right now but hopefully really soon I'll make it there. I'm a bit worried about going out of town next weekend because I don't want to see a weight gain but almost every time I go out of town I have 1-3 pound weight gain. I try my best to make the healthy choices when it comes to eating and last trip I even did a couple 30 minute workouts but still saw a 3 pound weight gain. This time I'm going be even more diligent and make sure I bring foods I can eat/snack on and limit outside food. I'm even going to bring my food scale with me as crazy as that sounds I feel it needs to be done, I'll even include my measuring cups so I can portion out food correctly because my sense of size sucks horribly. I can't wait to be in Chico for my birthday! I just want to be far far away from the hell hole we're in.

My 75 year old uncle asked what my goal weight was and when I told him I wanted to be at 175 he said that is still too big. I'm sorry but last I checked it was my body, my health, and my choice to be what size I want to be. His snide remarks like that are an almost every day occurrence since I was a child. He thinks he's being helpful but in the end he never is. For my height, age, gender, body structure 175 would be perfect for me and I'm stickin' to it. My goal is to be healthy not "skinny" So what if I'm 175 or even 170 I'm healthy and to me that is all that matters.

    We, as a society, are too tied up in numbers. He's an old man. He has no idea what a good weight on a woman is, because the generation he grew up in, women didn't reveal their weight.

    Do you girl. :) Enjoy your vacation. Even if you gain a pound or two, focus on getting away from the every day.
