A bit late on the ol’ weight loss post, as Wednesday night when I weighed in, I got a migraine and had to go to bed, so i forgot. So…. this week I lost 1.8 pounds which didn’t thrill me, but it’s a healthy weight to lose. I just was hoping for that first two weeks drop 10+ pounds, and got 6 instead. According to my scale at home today I’ve lost 8, so i don’t really know. Of course that’s first thing in the morning nekkid. But still, it’s apples to apples, that was how i was weighing myself before. They are weighing me in the evening with clothes on, but the main difference available there is different clothing weights (minimal impact) and food i’ve just eaten (can be noticeable in terms of poundage).
Anyway, the important point for me to focus on is that I’m LOSING and not gaining or plateauing, so don’t bitch about it. I’m getting used to eating smaller portions. It’s hard to stop when something is good. I had to keep telling myself last night. YOU DON’T NEED ANYMORE.
Speaking of food, gotta go eat lunch. Ciao!

It gets easier, then hard, then easy….LOL You are kickin ass…all positive and forward steps to your goals.
Just remember this:
NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS THIN FEELS…:O)~
Do this for yourself…When you hit 10 pounds LOST, go to the grocery store and pick up a 10 POUND bag of potatos or rice. It will really put in perspective what you really just did for your body.
You know I am going to cheer you on girl! GO GO GO!! WOOT WOOT WOOT!!

Hey chica! I am not quite finished with my first week yet. The incredibly large amount of certain foods that I can eat is ASTOUNDING, but the intensity of the whole… woa, I used to eat that all the time and it is HOW may points! is still kicking me in the face. In one way, I feel very in control of my weight and very empowered to do something about it. I’ve never felt like that before. I don’t feel like anything is happening. I still feel like the queen of chunk for one thing. I’m terrified I’ve been through all of this and have lost nothing. But I’m so aware of every bite I take and I’m eating way more fresh foods. So all in all I’m glad for that. I am proud of you!!!
