I wanted to share with everyone that I'm officially down 5 pounds from when I started trying to loose weight for the Flip this Body challenge. I know, that is nothing compared to some of your ladies (and gentlemen) out there, but I'm pretty happy about it. I started thinking to myself how many times I bought a shirt or a pair of pants that were on sale because I could wear them if I "just lost 5 pounds" Okay, most those things still don't fit because lets face it, 5 pounds isn't all that much when you are over weight, but still, I'm excited to see that number. I'm hoping the rain will clear up and I'll get some more excersise in this long weekend and not gain. Since I'm spending the weekend with my b/f this might cause trouble. We easily cave to eachother's requests for unhealthy food. This weekend, I'm going to constantly chant to myself, "portion control, portion control, PORTION CONTROL!" that last part of the chant is when the food gets put down in front of me or for when the b/f asks if I want to buy something sweet. hehe.
185 pounds! Not a light girl yet, but I just keep chanting the number in my head. hehe. (seems to be a good day for chanting, lots of rain to help me keep a beat =0p ) I am excited about this number even though it still reaffirms that I'm overweight. It doesn't seem like that long ago when I stepped on a scale dangerously bordering on 200 pounds. Now I'm down to 185, a little over 10 pounds lighter than when I started this blog. A few days ago someone asked me if I'd lost some weight. hehe. What a great feeling!! I told them I hadn't because I'm not quite ready to share with my RL friends and family the fact that I'm "trying to be good" I swear, everytime I let that information slip, someone immediately feels the need to make cookies or brownies. hehe.
I want to give a BIG shout out to everyone out there blogging. I"m really positive that your stories, comments, and links to healthy eating websites have helped me stay on track.
