7-14-12 6 MONTHS!!!! I never stick to anything for more than 6 MINUTES!!!!
My PINK anniversary has rolled around again....My
month total was not in double digits, but I have had other months that
weren't, either. For the most part I am happy with my progress....but
the self deprecating part of me can find plenty of things to complain
So here it is, my monthly total....68.2lbs. I so wanted it to be 70,
but that will come. I need to celebrate the losses and not dwell on what
could have been.
Of course, exercise is my nemesis, that has not changed. And, it is
summer and with the season come a variety of eating challenges during
social events. I am pretty good at managing those, but I have had some
things here and there that I shouldn't be eating.
Big non-PINK news, my daughter moved out....so her room is going to
transform into a work-out room, maybe that will help me spend more time
with the gym equipment, lol.
To celebrate my solid 6 month effort, I went shopping yesterday....I
got 5 new shirts and 2 pairs of pants. I am definitely an 18 in pants.
Shirts are crazy....depending on the shirt....I wear 1, 2, and 3x.
Mostly 2x....leaning toward mostly 1x. Apparently my brain cannot stop
thinking "buy the bigger one" It must be a training issue, my husband
often tells me the 1x looks better than the 2x...but I guess I am not
used to things actually fitting me. I wore a tighter fitting shirt the
other day and my son said "Damn, I didn't know you had lost THAT much
weight" (he is 17). He told me that if I wore better fitting clothes
that more people could notice. I am trying. My brain still thinks I wear
a 24/26 and that I need to wear tents.
I am very proud of being PINK for 6 months....honestly, I do not
really struggle with the food. I love eating REAL food instead of CRAP.
Sometimes I wish there were more portable snack options, but where meals
are concerned I am fine. As a really great PINK friend of mine would
say "you have to flip the switch." Well I have, my switch is flipped, I
eat for the energy it provides. Eating CRAP means crappy energy! I will
not go back....that part is for sure.
