I so wish you hadn't have posted the "attaboy" for staying under 300. As my freakin' scale said 300.0 this am.
But I am going to chalk it up to the fact that I ate lunch late yesterday followed shortly by a big dinner that probably had too much salt. Yeah. THAT has got to be it. I am sure tomorrow I will be back down. I swear I have lost the 300 and the 299 pound about a million times since I hit the 298 mark on the 28th. Have to admit it is really starting to piss me off. I wanting to stomp the scale into a million pieces and flush it down the toilet this morning.
Oh, well. On the bright side....today is the last day of my period and instead of the normal 5-7 pounds I usually gain on my cycle it has just been the up and down of the 2. That has to be progress, right?? Also, today I figured out that I can now take my size 28 jeans off and on with out unbuttoning/zipping them.
Hubby swears that I am losing inches even if the scale is stuck. Maybe he is right.
The people in my life (hubby/friends/coworkers) that have seen my yo-yo in the past keep reminding me that my body also loses weight in spurts. I will hold on to it forever and then drop a bunch all at once. Here is to hoping the dropping phase is about to hit.
Went to the grocery store today. And I have to say that it felt good to be PROUD of what was in the basket. I felt so IN CONTOL. Those of you who read this journal know what a big deal that is for me. Also, wasn't even tempted by carrot cake (one of my favorites) and ice cream at work this week. The smell of the cake actually kinda made me quesy. WHAT??? Who is this pod person? hahahaha.
I am going to try to focus on the NON scale victories for now. Maybe I shouldn't weigh daily, but I am afraid not to. What if I don't weigh for a week and find that I gained 10 pouns instead of just the fluctuating 2? That would be horrible. EEEEKKKKK!!!!
Weight: 300 grrrrr
B: 4 slices of turkey bacon, chedder cheese stick, cherub tomatoes, V8, water
(missed my morning snack because I was too busy at work)
L: salad mix with snap peas/cherub tomatoes/immitation lobster/ranch, 1% milk, water
S: pear, walnuts
I got pretty hungry after this snack. I don't know if it was because I missed my morning snack and had a lighter lunch or if the pear triggered it. I hope it wasn't the pear, but I bought 2 of them so we will see when I try the other one.
Hubby was late getting home from work and I was STARVING, so I snacked again to tide me over.
D: (Furr's) 2 chopped beef patties (again I was HUNGRY) with mushrooms, green beans, pinto beans, turnip greens, salad w/ranch, water
S: 1% milk
