After a tumultuous three weeks, I have officially lost 10 pounds! Yaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
It has been the smörgåsbord season at JMU. End of the year banquets, receptions, graduation parties… that ends up equaling eating, eating, and more eating. Being on a weight loss plan in the midst is very difficult because the food is SO GOOD and very tempting
I am proud to say I only gained weight one week and then only one pound. One of my friends who is on the same plan gained 3 pounds after one fateful weekend – yikes! It has been most difficult to balance moderation and low salt options. Several times I felt shriveled up like a prune because I ate something really salty. I don't ever cook with salt so I tend to be very sensitive to it.
I started this plan because I had outgrown my FAT clothes. Yes, my fat clothes. The ones I went and bought at Goodwill because I couldn't wear any of my regular clothes. I am happy to say I have started getting back into my regular clothes now. I can't wear them all yet, but I can wear some, and that is GREAT motivation to keep up the momentum. Woohoo.
Having my brother here has helped too because he is super healthy in his eating habits which helps me stay on track. I've had a few moments when I've been exhausted or emotionally spent. Those are the days I would have come home and fixed comfort food. But with Ryan here, I've eaten salads, grilled chicken, fish, and veggies just about every night. Yum.
So… onward and upward. I currently weigh 152. I am most comfortable and happy when I am 135-140. Twelve pounds to go… I can do it! You can do it! We can do it!
