Buh-bye, PLATEAU!

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE weekends???? I was definitely ready for this week to end!

I lost 4 lbs this week! I'm totally psyched! I hit a plateau the last couple weeks, and was also sick early this week, so I'm so relieved to be back on track with the loss. Keep 'em coming! I take it 5 lbs at a time, but I'm so close to being in the 100s that I can taste it :) It's so exciting. I know I'll have quite a bit more to go once I hit 199, but I feel like that's the down-slope. Something weird...I'm still 217 lbs but I was able to put on size 14 jeans today (granted, there was some muffin top going on, but still...)

I'm going out to dinner with a few friends tonight and plan on having a portabella sandwich, side salad, a few onion rings and a glass of Cabernet. I've had a craving for onion rings for a while and am going to give into before it becomes so overwhelming that I completely pig out. It's so exciting to be in control of what I do and more importantly, to understand my body. I was thin my whole life until I hit 22, but I don't think I ever truly understood my body's signals. I can't lie...I LOVE food and I love going out for a nice meal and I'm glad that I can continue to do that in a HEALTHY way.

I'm actually going out with my friend whom I based my previous blog on. I'm going to try to talk to her about how she can stay on track. She's making so many bad choices and I want to tell her what's worked for me. She's forced herself to start drinking wine to impress a guy who, at least historically, has proven himself to be an ass to her. She doesn't even like wine but she wants to look "classy" for him (her words, not mine) I'm a big wine drinker but I drink dry reds and she's drinking sweet whites by the bottle. I'm disturbed that she's drinking wine just to impress a guy and I'm also disturbed that she's drinking so much of it each night. She drinks an entire bottle and then says "But I didn't eat dinner so it's ok that I drank so many calories." I gently tried explaining to her that that wasn't the way to do it, but she didn't want to hear me. How frustrating....

Well, I'd better get ready for my night out. I'm sure I'll write more tomorrow!

    You are doing GREAT!!

    Good Luck with your friend. You've tried, but it doesn't sound like she wants to listen. Keep your goals in focus and hopefully she will see you happy and successful. Then maybe, she will ask you what works and she will be ready to connect to your words.
