I can’t believe it. With my Vegas trip and then the hectic toddler week, I actually broke even after not weighing in for 3 weeks. I weighed exactly the same! What a confidence booster that I’m actually doing this! I’m maintaining!
I also hit my old Weight Watchers meeting, the one with my favorite leader who I lost the bulk of my weight with. She cracks me up. During the meeting, she asked me to share some stuff with the group and she made the funnies comment. “No one congratulates you and says, ‘hey you look like you are maintaining nicely, congrats!’”. She is so right, when I was losing the compliments and celebration losing weight kept me going week to week. I worked toward my next goal, my next compliment and my next clothing size. There was a mission there, a process, something I was working towards. Now that I am maintaining I have to learn to live without all of that. I have to learn to be happy with who I am and what I have accomplished. It’s a different sort of challenge. So I’m patting myself on the back today.
Well this maintainer had a good day. I ate traditional meals in contrast to my normal snacking all day. Bear with me I don’t feel like doing the table tonight.
Breakfast: Shredded Wheat with skim milk
Lunch: Veggie Quesadilla with a side of rice (restaurant)
Dinner: Tomatoes with Creamy Balsamic Drizzle, light hot dog, baked beans, Sweet Potato Fries, ½ of the toddlers cheeseburger
I had a big dinner but I’m a little hungry right now. I may have a snack. I’m just not sure what.
As for site updates, I added a few more old posts from my journal. There is just no way I can duplicate my old site. There is too much. I’m plucking the more “important” posts from the old site and I’ll be adding them back slowly. I guess this is more form me then you. I like having a written progression of my weigh loss AND MAINTENANCE journey. ;~)
