Day 2: 158.8
Tuesday, July 31, 2018
I officially weigh the same that I did in 2007 when I came home from the hospital with my newborn son. The difference? I don't have a newborn this time -- it's the accumulated effect of bad decisions over the past few years.
In 2011, I weighed 142. Today, it's 158.8. There is absolutely no reason why I "had" to gain this weight. However, there are many reasons (and ways!) to take it off.
Just yesterday, I had to say no to chocolate chip cookies and potato chips at lunch. Also, my husband brought home an extra bag of fries from his post-work trip to McD's. I turned that down as well. My explanation is getting ingrained: "Remember what the doctor said? I can't eat that."
Today, I carpooled with a beautiful co-worker and friend who has worked very hard over the last few months to change her diet. She has figured out that eggs make her feel ill, she's made other changes, and she has lost 13 pounds. She is at pre-baby weight from 2011! I am so proud of her, and she is just glowing with her accomplishments. She inspires me. I'd like to feel the same way in a few more months. That's worth a bag of fries any day.
