Difference from last entry: -3.5
Difference from 2007 starting weight: -6
YAY! The very first words that I said when I saw the scale were “YAY! YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY!!!” Not just because this is a pretty darned good bit of weight loss this time around, but again because it was the result of a lot of hard work on my part. I’ve been forcing myself to be more selective in what I eat. I’ve been forcing myself to not grab any old junk food at whatever store I happen to be in at the time. Which is actually quite hard work. I didn’t realize it until I walked into a Target the other day and started planning which aisles to go to to get the best candies. I realized what I was thinking and literally gasped!
Fortunately, I had my anchor with me. I reached down, grabbed it in my hand, and told myself, You just don’t need to do this! Just buy what you came here for. No snacks, no food. And somehow, I did just that! I have also been much more conscious about meal choices (for example, getting a bagel with low-fat cream cheese and tomatoes on it, instead of a full bagel omelet sandwich). Unfortunately, I am still going out to eat too much. But at least I am making better choices.
I am now more than half-way to my first goal! This is starting to get exciting. 🙂
