Goodbye 180's

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Goodbye 180's, so happy to see you go and thrilled that I'm now in the 170's.... finally the scale budged which is amazing to me since I just came back from vacation. I tracked my meals the whole time, no matter how nasty the numbers were. Believe me the totals were nasty.... pina coladas and margaritas add up quick. My mom brought oatmeal raisin cookies, my favorite! And were they good! I didn't pack any pop for our trip and only ran up to the main house at the resort for a diet mountain dew twice. A huge triumph! Whhhooooot hoooooooo.... I walked everyday except for one.... I'm trying to think what was different that I was able to loose a pound during vacation and not before that.... I drank water on vacation, lots of water. So this week, I'm working on drinking my 8 glasses a day. I also had no scale to weigh myself on everyday. I need to be less obsessed with the scale and weighing everyday. I need to limit standing on the scale to once a week.

So hello 170's, so glad to see you, hope you don't stick around long though, I'm looking forward to the 160's.

    Congratulations! What a great feeling to return from vacation without a gain (I never do that!) Sometimes it's hard to figure out exactly why we are losing (or gaining), and I swear sometimes the scale has NOTHING to do with what you've been doing as far as eating & exercise! There's nothing more encouraging, though, than meeting a new goal. Keep up the good work!!
