Feeling a little bit better.
Friday, January 04, 2013
One of the times my mom came to visit this past September, I had her bring her scale since I didn't have my own. I really wanted to know what I weighed, since I hadn't weighed myself in months, and I knew I had gained weight. I had my mom and my husband go in the other room while I used the scale in the kitchen. I was back up to 201. Yuck! I hated that. I was down to 176lbs a year before that. I couldn't believe I let myself get back there.
A few weeks before Christmas when my mother asked me what I wanted, I told her I wanted a scale. She got me one. I was excited to have my own, but nervous about what I weighed. I had been eating fairly well for the first few weeks of December, but still not really exercising. Although, I did get weighed at the doctor's office in the beginning of December and I was down to 198lbs.
Yesterday, January 2nd, I got on the scale. I am down to 195.6. It's not a crazy amount to have lost in a month, but considering I hadn't been doing the best I could have been with my eating and exercising, I am pretty happy with it. And hey, at least I lost some and didn't gain anything :)
The holidays were crazy, so now I am trying to get on track. I have been eating better foods. I stopped drinking soda and eating candy. We have a bunch of snow and ice around here, so I am not going to be going for any walks or anything outside until it gets warmer out, but I do have a handful of exercise dvd's I can start doing at home. I am going to do the best I can. I am going to do what works for me. If I can lose 2lbs a week, great. If I lose 2lbs a month, that's fine with me. As long as I do what I can, feel better about myself, and lose what I can, I will be good :)
