You guys are awesome! I told you all yesterday about my struggles emotionally with the weight gain. You were all so encouraging and supportive. I love that!
I was going to title this post, “Putting My Big Girl Panties On and Moving On” but hence, my panties aren’t “Big Girl” panties anymore. They used to be. The day I walked into Victoria’s Secret to buy new panties was a good day for me! I was so happy to be able to buy “normal people” panties. Anyway…this post IS NOT about panties…I swear!
It’s about sucking it up and moving on.
Needless to say, after my emotional breakdown, I – HAD – ENOUGH!
I was ready to do something and F-A-S-T!
My husband and I were on a rampage. Time to eat healthy and move it.
That is exactly what we did. No eating out. No red meat. Oatmeal for breakfast. Salads for lunches. Healthy lean proteins and veggies for dinner. To top it off, a half-marathon training schedule to boot! Let’s do this!
I had such a great, heathy, focused week. There is nothing like that to get your head back in the game. I was excited to weigh on Monday morning. When I saw the scale, I was thrilled. Here are the results of all my hard work:
If you saw my post yesterday, you saw that on Monday, when I had my meltdown, I weighed 196.4. So…189.6 is a total loss for the week of 6.8 pounds. Yes, part of that was weighing first thing in the morning versus late in the afternoon. But still…I was stoked! What a great start!
Then, that night, I weighed in at Weight Watchers. Not so great:
I was up 2.2. But…I knew that I had a stellar week and I was back on track and focused. So…I once again had to emotionally put on my “skinny girl panties” and move on!
I tell you all of this to tell you that you have a choice. You can continue down a slippery slope into the weight gain abyss or you can put on your skinny girls panties and move on. Get back on track immediately and live the life you deserve.
