I fell off the thread last week but not the wagon (entirely). I just get busy and don't feel like I can keep up with everyone else so I don't come to post because I feel bad for not being able to read and offer everyone the same support that they are offering to me.
Had a wedding Saturday. It was a very small occassion with only about 45-50 guests. Very cute & intimate. Outdoors in the country. It was perfect. It started at 2, we stayed at the reception until 8 then went home & grabbed the kids and went to the after party bonfire until about 11. It was such a beautiful day. I ate 2 cupcakes was the worst of my damage that day.
... Yesterday however I kept picking at stuff to eat. Luckily most of it (except the Hershey kisses & Hugs) was healthy. I ate strawberries, grapes, orange, apple, granola, 1% milk, grilled chicken breast, butter & parsley boiled potatoes, mixed frozen veggies...oh and a cheeseburger with special k cracker chips on a thin bun for lunch. It was a lot of food and I just kept picking here and there. I was bored but hubby wanted me to spend the day with him so we just kind of holed up in our room lounging on the bed with laptops and watching guy tv all day. I didn't even do the laundry that I started Saturday morning.
Even with all of that though...the scale was down 1.6lb since last Monday. Have I mentioned that at this point I weigh less than I did when I got together with my hubby at age 15
? I vaguely remember at that age stating that I weighed about 240lbs. Who knows how accurate that was since I don't remember being weighed but I am in the same size clothing or one size smaller than I was when we got together so I currently weigh the least that I have in my entire adult life (considering for me that I became an adult at 15
Does anyone else have a problem when they go to think of the number that they currently weigh your mind automatically first thinks of a number about 40lbs heavier than what you are? When I start to think of what I weigh my mind usually goes in the 270's for some reason. Today I weigh 237.8 but even as I just typed that my mind said 278. Is that just part of the mental adjustment that needs to happen over time. Is it from my constantly changing weight and my mind not keeping up with it? It's just weird. I would think that being happy to weigh less that would be the number that comes to mind first! It is frustrating!
So let's try this again...
