You guys will not believe it!!!!!!! It took a lot to gear myself up this morning to weigh in. I was so nervous! I got up, went to the bathroom and then just did it.
Drum roll please :::::::::::: In the past ten days I have lost 14 pounds! YES! FOURFREAKINTEEN! I AM STILL FREAKING OUT! I can't even believe it. I had to re-adjust my eyes, step on the scale 2 more times just to make sure... It just shows how much I have been kicking butt! I am only 1 pound away from shaking off my 15 pound gain. As of today I am 259 pounds and 79 pounds down. I only have 21 more to go until I will have lost 100!!! To just think what is possible in only 10 days of serious commitment I think I will have the rest off in no time. I am so happy I could scream! Well I did scream lol I freaked my dogs out but it was one of those moments that a scream was needed lol. A happy scream that is. I really feel like I have just won the lottery. I'm back baby!
I am so happy I didn't let that 15 pound gain bring me down. The old me would have gotten so discouraged that I would have officially put the kibosh to it all. I feel back on track now and I have plans to only excel from here on out! Never, EVER quit.
Today is my first Friday cheat day since I have re-started my journey. So far I have been a rebel and skipped my lemon water and made myself a cup of coffee instead. Living on the edge, I know! lol - I have the option today to cheat with food and not exercise. As of right now I don't have plans to cheat with food. I also still have plans to workout! Some cheat day lol - I will probably make those smudgie sandwiches I posted about the other day and have a couple later on tonight but that will most likely be the extent of it. After seeing my results today I am having a hard time getting into the cheat day mind frame. Which is great! Knowing that I am only 1 pound away from being back to -80 has inspired me. Last night I wanted to munch so bad but I didn't. I kept wishing it was my Friday cheat day so I could. I am so glad I didn't cave in last night and munch. I tend to do that to myself before my weigh in days. It's like I subconsciously try to sabotage myself. I don't know why! Sometimes I feel like Jim Carrey in "Me, Myself & Irene" ...trying to kill that part of me that just says do it, just eat it, what could it hurt, common you know you want it!... lol
NO ONE can wipe the smile off my face today!
Since I have posted today's post early I do not have my daily calorie chart ready yet. Later on once I have it all filled out I will add it to the end of this.
My name is Marilyn and I am 27 years old. I have been overweight for most of my life and on May 1st, 2012 I weighed in at 338 pounds. This blog is about my weight-loss journey.
