I got up this morning and had my green tea w/fresh squeezed lemon juice. I got mad because I went to have my last banana and when I started peeling it was all nasty on the inside so I ended up skipping breakfast. Later on around 2pm I had a weight watchers meal with water and then for dinner I had steamed cauliflower and a grilled boneless skinless chicken breast on toasted multigrain bread with a lettuce leaf and a serving of bbq sauce on it. So good.
After I worked out today I thought what the heck and I stepped on the scale just for fun. I geared myself up for a number I didn’t want to see and with shoes on and all I weighed in at 323! That means I have officially lost 15 pounds!! I am ecstatic! That is like 1 ten pound bag of potatoes and one 5 pound bag. Image carrying that to your car from the grocery store! Amazing…. I put my shirt on today and it is a little big on me so I decided to take more pictures and compare them to the ones I took a couple weeks ago. What a difference! I wish I measured myself when I started this because I know I’ve lost inches around my belly. The little things I’m noticing are so simple like being able to sit on the couch Indian style without discomfort and not getting winded so fast when I do something. I have also noticed since I have been eating healthier my nails are stronger. I am finally growing them out for once. They got so brittle these past few years that I just cut them allll the time so they wouldn’t snag. ALSO my rings are loose! My fingers almost look longer and they are not as chubby. There is no way I’m stopping this process now! How could I? Way too many good things are coming from this. I am so happy.
