So, I woke up this morning and tried to fake being asleep for a good 15 minutes because I knew it was weigh-in day and I was nervous.
Since I skipped last week (which means I actually weighed myself, but didn't count it as an official weigh-in), I've been stuck at 284 for the past few days (since that Wednesday or so). I weighed in today at 280!!!!
That means, based on official weigh-ins, I've lost 2 more pounds. But, based on my small stint at 284, I've lost 4 pounds!! I'm really excited about this because I really was starting to lose hope when that number wouldn't budge.
I feel absolutely wonderful. I've been eating right & it feels amazing to not have that junk in me. I forgot how good it feels to actually feel cleansed!! And I think I've actually gone the week with no fast food or any crap like that...and to be honest, I'm not even craving it :-)
This week is going to be my biggest challenge since I'm heading to Charlotte tomorrow for my Opa's (that means Grandpa for anybody wondering) 90th birthday!! I can't believe he's 90...he's still going like he's my age!! Then it's off to Myrtle Beach with the family and some close family friends for a few days...right before classes start. I'll be gone until my next weigh-in which means probably eating out more & being around food that I shouldn't put in my system.
I've already talked to my Aunt & one of my friends coming to the beach. Both said they would workout with me, so hopefully that'll motivate me to keep me going...plus, I wouldn't be surprised if my mom volunteers to go for a walk/jog with me at the beach. And then for eating...while, when we're out, I'm going to stick to what I know is good for me. Salads, vegetables, grilled chicken. Then at the beach house, I'm going to try to get the stuff that I've enjoyed eating on day 1, so I won't even need to be tempted while I'm down there!
I can't wait to get away...I'm in desperate need of a vacation. Not that I don't love my job or Raleigh, but I haven't gotten away since March!! Not even for a weekend trip! I just haven't had the time. So, it'll be nice to see people that don't see me very often...and maybe they'll see a difference?? We'll see!!
