Okay, these weigh-ins seem to be arriving on a daily basis. I can’t believe it’s already been another week in this journey of mine. Honestly, the time has been flying. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing, but I’ll take it!
This past week started more or less how the other one ended. I was still feeling down and out by Sunday night. Finally, on Monday, something ignited inside me and that spark has grown into a full-blown fire. I’ve been doing everything as I’m supposed to do it. I have a new drive and I don’t know how long this will last, but I’m embracing and going with it for as long as I can. And dare I say, I’m happy! Where has this feeling been? There’s nothing that could have happened on the scale this morning that could have diminished this feeling. I seriously want to jump up and down!
Let’s see if I actually have a reason to celebrate…
Since December 4, I’ve lost:
That means I lost 4.4 lbs this week! Let me just say — there is no rhyme or reason with what happens on the scale. I had what I considered to be one of my worst weeks since last year, but look what happened! Sometimes we can give a weight loss journey all we have, and then some, and not lose any weight. Then you’ll have weeks where you swear you’ve gained weight, and the number on the scale goes down. As everyone knows, the scale isn’t a fair judge and this further proves that. I’m thankful for my progress, but each week is new and different things can happen throughout it. I try not to expect much.
Today is going to be a tricky day. I have a cousin of mine visiting me and she hasn’t seen me since Thanksgiving when I was 27.6 pounds heavier! She doesn’t know that I’ve restarted my journey. Now, normally I wouldn’t care, but she’s my drinking buddy. Every time she and I get together, we drink. When I say we drink, I mean we drink. She’s 21 so we always go out to bars (sigh) to drink. Any ideas for what I can order? I really don’t know how I’m going to handle her visit this time. I’ll have to get creative, I suppose. (Thank you Lauren, Rob, and nschultz22 for the suggestions).
Well, that’s all the torture I’m going to have you endure today. Have a happy Wednesday! 🙂
Until next time,
