I am very late posting today, for a number of reasons–most related to family in one fashion or another. I did have to make a shopping run, my unmentionables had to be replaced with the proper size ones. Mikey had a job scheduled later this evening and wanted to spend time with me at lunch–so we did (he wanted to eat mexican–so we did). I got home and the cutest little grand girly was at my house and needed attention–so I altered my plans and gave her some. Just as I settled in to write this post my younger daughter called and requested my presence shopping for a new swim suit. I liked that–so I stopped what I was doing and headed out to meet up with her (Dizi, we can’t park outside town and walk, cuz we would never make it–way too far–but I thought of you when I parked further away). Mike wanted to go so we waited for him, and had a fun bit of family time.
Today was a day of mixed emotions. Honestly, it was quite emotional, majority high and mushy, but a few were tummy twisters. As you know I was very nervous about what news my weigh in would bring, and that was just the starters for my emotional day. Funny, we had a class on emotional eating. I think that was a timely class for me. Today brought with it many minefields of shifting emotions. Up down and all around, more on that in a bit … let’s jump into the weight in now … it played a big part in the roller coaster of emotion.
I have lost … drum roll please… 2 pounds this week. Yea! Again, I have NO idea how that happened.
I have lost a total of 73.5 pounds on the OptiFast Plan. Since starting with Donna and Loseit.com I have lost 81.5 pounds. This week what blows my mind is that I LOST. Now, I am completely confused as to what I think I know about what to do with my body and how to feed it. I am glad that we had the class on emotional eating, because this could have been an opportunity for me to run willy nilly and jump-off-the-deep-end and eat what ever came to mind. I ate almost completely off shakes this past week. Yes, I watched my calorie intake, and mostly ate soups. But I did eat things like burgers — hold the fries, I ate the halves of 3 candy bars, and 300 calories of Cheetos … so … now … I feel slightly lost in what exactly happened here. I ate more and exercised less and again I lost weight. I think I am going to have to take this information slow and easy, because I don’t want to lose my control or focus. I can’t take it as a licenses to eat what ever I want. I gotta keep a hold of myself. WOW! Anyone got any ideas??
I am one happy girl … I am! I win! I am dizzy with excitement. 🙂
**MO = Morbidly Obese **JO = Just Over weight
So … What about that Stinkin’ BMI number?? I was ready for a 29.something-or-other and NOW I have 29.7!!! Yea! Yeah! Do a Happy Dance — I am now JUST OVERWEIGHT!!!! I got my wish — this week WAS the week I broke into the merely overweight category. I can hardly believe it!
I did have a very good day … filled with family and good news on my Loss. Why did I have ups and downs? Well … Life happens everyday and little problems chase our joys round and round trying to take them to the ground. When you look at the ledger of good-stuff versus the not-so-good-stuff, the good stuff wins the day. On that fun note I am gonna hit the hay so that Maybe … just maybe I will feel even better in the morning. 🙂
Cheers to y’all! ….S
