Ok - Confession time!
I did not work out last night like I planned but as much as I am not looking forward to it I WILL WORKOUT TODAY. I also cheated with food last night and ate rice crispy treats. Nothing too juicy but I just had to get it out there.
Now that that's off my chest lol... I had my lemon water first thing this morning. I made myself some oatmeal for breakfast with a cup of coffee. I am on my 5th cup of green tea and am halfway through my water jug. I missed lunch and am not sure what I will have for dinner. I will probably make myself a pita pizza.
I have been reading my past posts. I find motivation every time.
<-- I posted this picture on entry #15 on May 15th, 2012- At the time I posted this I had only lost the weight on the second shelf. I now look at this picture prouder than ever because I sit here knowing that not only have I lost the weight on the second shelf but also on the 3rd shelf, the 4th shelf and then some. I have lost the weight on the bottom shelf almost FIVE times. I can't believe it. I remember the day I was dreaming about just getting to the 3rd shelf.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from some of my May 2012 entries.
"I never understood why I never got motivated to do this seriously before. I was always looking for someone else to be serious about it for me. No one can take me serious if I’m not!" - Entry #5, 05.05.2012
"Right now I need to see what way works the best and what way doesn’t. It’s like a science project and I’m the lab rat! - Entry #9, 05.09.2012
"Loosing weight is like a mind over matter battle with yourself. You just have to keep telling yourself one thing and making yourself stick to it." - Entry #20, 05.20.2012
"Even though it’s only been a month I feel like I have accomplished so much. Sometimes I feel like I’m a different person. I have to stop and say “who are you?” once in a while. The old me would have never stuck to anything like this." - Entry #30, 05.30.2012
I am so ready to drop this weight! I wish I could just wave a magic wand and speed up the process! It has been a ridiculous burden my whole life that I just lived with. The weight I need to loose is a WHOLE ENTIRE person! How crazy is that? It’s like I’ve been giving someone a piggy back ride my whole life. The accommodations I have had to deal with over the years are ridiculous. I never really realized how messed up it was to act like life was normal for me." - Entry #7, 05.07.2012
