I took a look at the scale tonight and while the loss is minimal in comparison to my first week I haven't had a loss like this in a long time that I couldn't attribute in most part to water weight. I won't give away what I saw on the scale. I only pray that something doesn't happen in my sleep and the scale reads differently in the morning. (My official weigh)
Something big is coming in May. This may be getting a bit ahead of myself but I'm planning to take a vacation. The details I will not give. Perhaps when the time comes closer. But I will say that this potential vacation gives me even more motivation to lose. I look at the things my family members are eating like chips/cookies/ice cream/candy/popcorn/chocolate etc and while my brain wants them I also feel this incredible strength in saying no.
It feels so much better to eat healthy. There is no physical sickness from overeating or binging. There is no mental anguish from the turmoil and guilt said overeating or binges provoke. You feel good. You feel well. Healthy. Energetic. Dare I say more alive?
I have new favorite veggies. Broccoli, squash (any kind), sweet peppers, cucumber, zucchini, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, mushrooms and more. I have also discovered some veggies I still dislike immensely. Peas (any kind), edamame, asparagus, and um - can't think of anything else.
I'm feeling really good and by February 1st I hope to be in the 260's. I will photograph and measure myself if that is the case. (Measurements are a for sure thing - I won't take photos until I weigh less than I did in the last photos)
And on that note I have a question:
I don't comment on a lot of blogs, generally because I read them from my iPhone google reader app. If something is particularly inspiring I usually bring it back to my own blog, pay it forward with a link and put in my 2 cents. Now, I know this is not true for all people out there in blog world.
My question is this:
If you read/see something on someones' blog that is displeasing to you but is part of that person and something that the person physically cannot change why would you comment less then politely about it? Why not just leave it alone?
That is all lovelies.
