My weigh-in this past Saturday was great: down 3 more pounds, to 188.2. I am finally out of the 190’s! Now to focus on blasting through these 180’s to hit the 170’s. If I focus on just the next 10 pounds, it doesn’t seem so overwhelming!
Having a 3-day weekend was a challenge. Something about a day off makes me want to skip my workout, laze around, and eat (okay, that’s not much different than how I feel every day, ha ha). I made myself go to the gym yesterday, and I ran on the treadmill with an incline to strengthen my legs. I logged all my food on MyFitnessPal, which kept my eating in check.
I had to go shopping over the weekend for an outfit for my company’s big awards and anniversary event next week. I hate shopping for clothes when I am this overweight. Nothing is going to look good, and I know it! I hate pawing through the racks looking for my size behind all the tiny 6’s and 8’s.
I found a nice pair of black pants and a pretty, royal blue top. I promised myself that when I reach goal weight, I will come back to that store and enjoy browsing through the pretty, cute clothes in smaller sizes. I will enjoy trying on nice clothes and seeing how great they look on me. I may not have enjoyed this shopping trip, but I promise myself, even if it’s months and months from now, I will be able to go back and enjoy the next one!
