This week's goal - 235.5
Weight this morning - 234.5
I hope you don't mind that I didn't put the newspaper in the picture. I've been up since 4am, and it's now 6:05. No paper delivered yet, and I'm HUNGRY and want to eat! I also need my coffee.
As expected, the 'honeymoon' phase of this weight loss journey is coming to an end.
Do you know what the next phase is?
I call it the 'Conniption Fit' phase.
We've all seen perfect examples of this numerous times in grocery store check out aisles. A toddler reaches for a candy bar, is told 'no', and proceeds to have a conniption fit.
Of course, on the outside for the most part, I remained calm and collected. On the inside I was on the floor, limbs flailing and being a real brat.
This week was harder.
I'm so thankful I've done this here, cause if I hadn't I might have just decided to 'do it later'.
For those of us who fight this beast, we know the pain of another false start.
Girls....it's 'Doin' Time'. It is so Doin' Time now.
If you need this, don't keep putting it off.
In the coming weeks, I'll be talking about this more, in detail, what I'm doing, etc. I just figured two days before Christmas isn't really the time to delve into it!
I'm missing sugar terribly.
I find myself wistfully fantasizing about having tea and scones.
Oh what a comfort sugar has been to me.
It's been my little 'take a break from reality' drug.
I know it's as much a physical addiction as a psychological one.
Cookies soothed me. What I needed soothing over, is still not clear.
Cupcakes tucked me into bed at night, and cheesecake told me bedtime stories.
Candy...well candy was a secret lover that no one knew about.
It sent me risque text messages.
This week, my goal is just to stay the same, not to lose, or gain.
Several of you have made comments and sent emails saying that you don't want to take my money if I fail! That is so incredibly sweet, but for right now, I need the accountability. I need it to hurt here with embarrassment and hurt in my pocket book too.
So...again...a $50 Amazon.com gift card to be offered next week if I gain any weight.
If you've read this far into the post....thank you! I plan on tempering this Wednesday Weigh-In post with a Pioneer Woman Wednesday recipe review from Aaron in the upcoming weeks. You know...the yin and the yang. I'm sure you're all not interested in my weight loss musings.
