How did you all do on Thanksgiving? Who gained weight? Who maintained? Who *lost* weight?
ME! I lost weight! I lost nearly 3 lbs since Wednesday! I am sitting pretty at 215.2 lbs, down from 218. Its great to see that number again. If you will remember, I was at 215 before but then gained back nearly 3 lbs over the last two weeks. I guess I just wasn't ready to see that number on the scale, or maybe I was losing too quickly and my body had to adjust. Who knows, but the important thing was, I never gave up and I will not give up. I am happy with the pace I am going and I am enjoying getting to know more about myself along the way.
Things I have learned this week:
-Sometimes, change is good. Other times, its fantastic. I recently dyed my hair a dark brown with a blonde streak. I decided that I look much better as a brunette (who would have guessed, since I am naturally a brunette anyway!)
-Don't sweat it. Sometimes we worry too much about what we are or aren't doing "right". Heck, I planned Thursday's thanksgiving meal but totally winged Friday's. Both felt good.
-Sleep is important. Not getting enough sleep definitely impacts how I will eat that day.
-Yogurt is my favorite. I eat yogurt but then stop because I would get yeast infections (caused by the live bacteria) This makes me sad. I've decided that if I keep eating it long enough, my body will balance out. After all, yogurt is the bomb (dot com) and I don't want to give up this delicious dietary staple. I bought 6-6oz cups this week.
