I weighed myself this morning and have lost a little bit more weight! I am closer than I was yesterday. I am so excited! I will update you all with a total for the week on Friday. Soon, very, very soon I am going to reach my goal! I don't want to jinx anything but I hope to be there this weekend! I was telling Michael yesterday that the day I get to my goal of being 100 pounds down it will mean more to me than any other day I have had so far in my life (besides the day he proposed). To me it will be a huge life accomplishment and I plan to celebrate! There has been talk about having a celebratory summer BBQ/party for anyone that would like to come help me celebrate this huge milestone in my life. It probably won't be until the weather is nice - So as soon as the grass is green and the sun is shining those wheels will be put into motion :-)
I had my lemon water first thing and then made myself a 2 egg omelet, a wheat English muffin and 2 slices of turkey bacon for breakfast. It's the same as what I would eat in my breakfast sandwiches but I cut out the cheese and added another egg. The meal was only 20 more calories than what is in my breakfast sandwiches; 311 calories all together. Also this was my first time making a successful omelet! lol - I was very happy with how it came out. I think I got it down now. I plan to make a baked sweet potato for lunch and will have a salad for dinner. I am on my 4th cup of green tea and still have yet to start on my water jug. I have been kicking butt and have been keeping up with my workouts. I still have yet to exercise today but I will! Nothing can stop me now! I like these results I have been seeing this week and I know it's because I have been stepping it up and have had my game face on!
Favorite quotes from December 2012:
"My theory is: In order for things to go right; you must come clean."
"If you treat your body right it will love you back!"
"Today I am having one of those days where I can't believe how far I have come. Even with my set-backs I can't help but just sit here and smile. I never thought I would follow through with this process. I can't believe I even topped the -50 mark."
"I think part of me feels like I have failed because of my recent weight gain and therefore I just went down hill from there (mentally) but I need to remember who I am and why I started this journey. I need to finish what I started. I WILL NOT GIVE UP! It may take some time but I will get to where I want to be. I cannot say I didn't expect a few hiccups along the way and I can say there will probably be more. The bottom line is I KNOW I can get through them and try to be the best I can be. The ONLY one standing in my way is ME." -Entry #202, December.13.2012
"I was approached by a woman in the store today and she asked me if I was Marilyn. It made me feel great because I have met her before! I still feel like me but I forget I might look different to the people that haven't seen me since I have started my journey."
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.
