This morning I woke up and had some cereal with fat free milk. I got a pack of those little boxes of cereal that are proportioned properly. I think they are perfect for me! I don’t have the temptation to take more and I get a variety without going over on my calories. I’m on my 6th or 7th cup of green tea and have already gone through my 75 oz jug of water. For lunch I made some veggie stir fry and had a little bit of beef with it. I didn’t get to eat my lunch until late so I had a snack a couple of hours ago with pretzels and string cheese. I danced for my work out today and I went for 30 minutes. I danced again later on but for not as long and I also did some leg lifts/crunches. Over all it was a great day on the diet/exercise front! The next time I plan to weigh myself is next Sunday.
I am overwhelmed by the amount of support from people lately! I am in disbelief at the heartwarming comments and well wishes! It inspires/motivates me and verifies 100% that I am on the right path! I will keep going and I will not quit! I have only 39 more pounds to lose until I will have lost 100 and I hope I get there by Thanksgiving! I have said in the beginning that I will stop my blog after I lose 100 pounds and still debating on if I should or not. I think I’ll be able to better decide that as I get closer to my goal and how well I think I would do without it. After I lose 100 pounds I will still be trying to lose weight to get to my ultimate goal weight of 170 pounds.
I forgot to mention the other day when I went clothes shopping that 1 pair of the pants and the crochet sweater is a XL and not a 2XL! I HATE how sizes run so different for different brands!!! It’s annoying but I am happy that I can fit into some XL sizes too!
For once everything in my life seems to be going my way and it is an AWESOME feeling!!!! I could not be happier with how things are and it is awesome to think that it is just going to keep on getting better and better. Anyone that says losing weight will not change your life is wrong. Being morbidly obese has EVERY worst possible effect on you; your mood and your whole well being! Why I waited so long to do this is beyond me!
I FEEL LIKE A WHOLE NEW WOMAN!!!!!!!
