On June 27th (my last post) I talked about how I was in a slump and had hit a plateau. So I weighed myself today expecting to have gained several lbs because I just kinda ate my feelings (not to the extreme that I had in the past). But, when I stepped on today I noted that I had lost 1.6 lbs after going up and down the same lb. I am now the lowest weight I have been in 2 years. That is 28 lbs lost, granted it isn’t a lot, but for me that is a big deal. I am going to start the challenge that my cousin is on instagram #30for30 which is a challenge that one of the girls we follow has been doing for the last 10 days. I figured no better time to start than now. Doing it on the 4th will be a little bit difficult cause we’re going to the casino for fireworks, but it shouldn’t be too bad since the hotel has a gym.
I keep having little slip ups and going over on my calories. I have to keep reminding myself that I’m only human and I will make mistakes and old (like 30 years old) habits are hard to break. I have to try really hard not to eat my feelings, like going to eat for celebration, eating when I’m sad, and eating when I’m bored. It’s a serious problem that has left me with 100+ lbs to lose. I have about 40 more lbs to go till I am where I was when I met my husband. When I look at the grand scheme of things, I’ve lost almost 30 in 4 months and it could have been more if I were more strict, but I’m not going to make myself feel bad about it. I can lose 40 more by the end of the year.
So, I think I’m done with my update for today, but remember guys, love the body that you’re in. we only get one, and hating it is just going to make life miserable.
