So, I have given up on the arbitrary rules that I set for myself. I’ve given up on other people’s rules for weight loss.I’ve given up on trying to fit into a size. I’ve given up doing to for my husband, my family, or myself. That’s right, I ‘m not losing weight for me. I’ve tried that. “Me” wants chocolate, so weight loss means nothing. I’m not even trying to lose weight. I’m trying to be happy. I know, crazy right?
The thing is, I’m happy with what I am doing. What I’m doing is eating less, drinking more water, and weighing myself every day. I walk at work and I don’t feel ashamed to get up repeatedly to get more water or just to walk. Here’s the even weirder thing, I’m losing weight. That’s right, when I finally stop caring or wanting it, it freaking happens.I don’t mind it. I’m sure the materialistic, vain part of me will be happy to fit into some of my clothes I have out grown. The thrifty side of me definitely will be.
Tomorrow I will outline what I eat on a daily basis and what I’ve been eating when I eat out.
I wanted to leave you with a pic of my recent weight loss progress. Here is a photo I took of my progress on Wii Fit Plus. I read online today that buying the leg extensions will fix the problem with my super thick carpet. Let’s hope that even though the weight is off, it has been weighing the differences correctly. Also, please note that I’m REALLY close to the short term goal I set!
