We’re weighing in over at the Sisterhood today! It’s week #2 of this sprint of a challenge. I’m excited to see how everyone has done!!
For me, I had a few challenges over the weekend. I ate poorly and I didn’t exercise. So, I know where I went wrong. I am so close to a very big milestone that I can taste it, but if I have a feeling I'm not going to reach that milestone this week. That said, I did have a most excellent thing happen this week. A little over a month ago, my friend Jessie was visiting me and brought me some jeans that were now too big for her. These are size 10s. Of course I tried them on when she was here and couldn’t get them buttoned. Judging by how much I couldn’t get them buttoned, I felt like it would be a couple of months before these jeans would fit. So, Jessie asked me this week if those jeans fit yet. I responded immediately, “nope”. But then I thought, why not try them on. And guess what? THEY FIT!! I was so excited that I wore them to work today even though I haven’t “doctored” the length yet. (read: cut them off) Size 10! You know when the last time I wore a size 10? Never! Even at my smallest before I was always a 11 or 12!
Now to the weigh-in:
Last week’s weight: 147.4
This week’s weight: 148.4
Damn. I know I had cake and ice cream and Mexican food and not light beer. I know I didn't exercise at all last weekend. So if I know all of this, then why do I feel like I just have been slapped in the face? Maybe it's because I'm so close to that milestone. I want to reach it so badly. Maybe it's because that I've made reaching my goal this challenge next to impossible. Okay, I need to quit before I put myself in a bad mood. I need to focus on the positives. I've lost so much so far. I just fit my butt into a size 10 jeans! That's down from an 18/19 jeans! Yeah, I didn't reach that milestone, but I'll reach it soon! I've got this!
Okay, I feel better. I still could use a hug though.
**Update** Today is a non-work out day. Today, I worked out. :o)
