half way

Thursday, June 10, 2010

My husband asked me how my doctor's appointment went. I use that scale as my official weigh in. According to the Doc's scale, I've reduced 2 pounds in 2 months. My husband said that I look better than what the scale is showing (I feel the joy ripples!).

It took me awhile to reallize that I'm halfway. It doesn't feel necessary to reward it, because I'm full speed ahead on the next 31. Besides, I'm still wearing many of the same clothes! Some fit better, and I'm getting ready for a clothes crisis. It will hit with the tops first. I will have to see if the goal weight I set is the right fit. I haven't been there in a long time.

I started a new eating plan 5 days ago. I had my first bump in the road last night, but today I adjusted successfully. I'm trying to keep my starches to twice a day plus a veggie starch like beans once/day. I managed to avoid desserts at the board meeting I had today. My morning exercise didn't happen as I was too tired after having a friend over (for that bump in the road) -- but I got in a walk late in the evening. A minimum 30 minutes had been achieved. I've become a stickler about salad with supper too.

I have the trip to France coming up, so a reward doesn't seem necessary. I wanted to be down several more pounds before this trip, but now I'm looking forward to the challenge of keeping a balance of intake and output with daily unknowns. Ha! but before that challenge, I'm gonna implement as much control as possible, now that I seem to have found a way of eating that is both normal and working for fat reduction!

    Thanks! And I found a subtle way to celebrate -- I tried on a shirt from my closet that I haven't worn because it was too small, and it FITS!
