It is 10:13AM. I got up about an hour ago. After I went to the bathroom I weighed in. I am not thrilled about it but am happy that I have at least lost something. I don’t think I’ll be waiting this long to weigh in again. I have only lost 3 pounds for the past 2 weeks. I think it’s good to weigh in often like I used to because then I can keep an eye on what is going on and if I’m gaining/not losing. So far I have lost a total of 64 pounds. I also know I had my hopes set a little high. I have been feeling a lot of stress lately and I know my head has not been 100% in the game. I also think I am going to go back to weighing in on Friday. I should have known better than to have cheated on Friday and then weigh in on Sunday. Part of me was hoping for a 10 pound weight loss but I knew deep down it wasn’t much! I have acknowledged it and I am going to MOVE ON! I know what I have to do to.
On another note I got some of this oatmeal at the grocery store the other day. I had some for breakfast today and it isn’t that bad! It came in a box with 5 pouches. It has the oats rolled in flax seed and I have heard so much about flax seed since I’ve been on my diet. I have finally found a way I will eat it. The oatmeal was on sale for .88 cents and I need to go get more while it’s still on sale. You add water and microwave for 90 seconds. It is so easy to prepare and 2 boxes at .88 cents will last me TEN days for breakfast! How cool and it is 165 calories for one pouch.
I am already on my second cup of green tea and am determined to make today great. I have another busy day but I am going to make the most of it and grab the bull by the horns! There should be no reason why I should be sad. I have lost 64 pounds and just because it may not be going as fast as I’d like it to right now; I just need to be happy with where I am at the moment!
