Weigh in Wednesday ::: Hope

Are you excited?
Me too!
It's my fav day of the week!
Some people may dread stepping on the scale.
I used to be one of them.
Now I LOVE it.
I get to see the fruits of my labor.
This week started out a little shaky.
After my 3.5 lb loss last Wednesday,
I caved and had a big old juicy cheeseburger.
The kids school was doing Spirit Night at a local restaurant,
so I treated everyone to burgers and corn dogs.
You know what's funny?
I didn't even particularly want a cheeseburger that night, and surely didn't think I'd eat the whole thing (they are kind of big!)
But, there I was, sitting there staring at an empty wrapper
feeling a tad bit guilty.
But then Robyn's little voice popped in my head.
She said "I didn't get fat eating veggies
and I'm not going to get skinny eating veggies".
What she means by this is that even though we are losing weight,
if we don't indulge every once in awhile,
this whole thing will never last for the long haul.
She's right.
I don't feel guilty anymore, but the cool part is that now I have the
self control to eat the things I know I should be eating after splurging on something not-so-good-for-me :)
Then I had to get over some other hurdles, like not having the time
(no, literally, I could NOT find time) to work out a couple days that I wanted to.
I try and get to the gym 5-6 days a week.
This week I only went 4 days and 1 of those
I only walked on the treadmill for 20 min.
Needless to say, I was hoping to lose at least a 1/2 lb this week!
That's all I was hoping for, honestly. But my body had other things in mind.
I got on the scale this morning and guess what?!?!
I lost 2.5 lbs this week!
That means I am down 21.5 lbs!
The awesome part is that I only have
ONE pound to go before I am officially under 200 lbs!
I think know I can! :)
