Today is Wednesday and that means Weigh-InWednesday! I'm starting to love Wednesdays! My weight this week is 216.6! I am down 7 pounds from last week! Holla for a dolla weight loss!
Mama needs a pedi!
Now, I know it's mostly water weight and there's no way I will do this again. This has been the story of my yo-yo dieting - 1st week, do really good, lose a good 5 pounds, feel good about it all, think I can slack off a little because it's easy, 2nd week, gain back 4 pounds for a net loss of 1 pound, get mad because I think I worked my booty off and didn't eat anything good for 2 weeks for 1 pound and then pretty much give up. However, now I feel equipped with enough knowledge, determination, whatever not to let that happen. I have learned to look at this long term, where I hope to be in the next 3 months, 6 months, next year, etc. I know there will be weeks that I don't lose or even gain, but that's all part of it. I don't want to be so focused on the scale that I lose sight of the big picture - getting healthy & shaping my body. And I'm sure I will lose motivation, but when I do, I hope to pick it right back up again.
So, how did I lose weight this week? I'm tracking everything I eat in My Fitness Pal. And, my co-worker and I joined the gym! We are keeping each other accountable. It hasn't been hard and I'm really enjoying it. That's my "Me Time". I have so much more energy. I just can't tell you how much I'm really liking this. Also, with My Fitness Pal, there's no certain food I can or can't eat. It's simply tracking calories. There's no special food I have to buy or separate meals I have to cook just for me. It's great because I have it on my phone and literally take it with me everywhere I go. Easy peasy!
