*hops on scale 5 additional times*
I honestly couldn’t trust my eyes. I can’t believe today I made it to 163 lbs. Granted, I’m also almost naked when stepping on the scale (shorts and a t-shirt b/c it’s freaking hot as well these past few days). I also just realized that my driver’s license weight (received when I was a junior in high school) was 169lbs so I passed it a fews weeks ago…LOL
But wow! I can’t believe it! If anything, I thought I gained wait since TOM came to see me last week and stayed for 4 days. haha. I had lunch with a friend on Monday—pulled pork adobo sandwich with a tomato and mozzarella salad. She noticed I had lost weight to! Yesterday though, I barely ate anything (which isn’t something I condone, I just wasn’t hungry). My co-worker even asked why I still had a Kinder’s sandwich left (I only had half). I think yesterday I was just upset about stuff. Not to mention the heat has been giving me headaches up the wazoo.
163 is a big number for me, mainly because I kept thinking it was my license weight but also it is my weight from high school. I can estimate and say I haven’t seen this weight since at least 9 years ago. HOLY CRAP! Not to mention I had two avocado smoothies this past weekend and a major mother’s day banquet dinner (although my appetite was smaller this time around and everyone else ate more food than me so there wasn’t much for me to forage). I also had a really great vegetarian dish at a friend’s house: lentils and roasted butternut squash (nom nom nom).
I am still taking the raspberry ketones and african mango from Creative Bioscience. I probably will keep taking it until the end of summer or so. Depends, I would LOVE LOVE to get down to 130 by August. 33 lbs in 3 1/2 months? I think it is doable b/c of the change in my diet. Once I get down to 125 or so, I won’t mind the fluctuation of 5 lbs give or take.
I’VE ALSO STOPPED SNORING!!! I think when I was at my highest I was snoring like crazy and starting to have sleep apnea. Very dangerous, and one of the reasons I wanted, and needed, to lose weight. I also need to lose a lot of belly fat. My mid section is the most problematic. My legs are looking great though =] Might be the swimming and walking I’ve started incorporating in my schedule…
So I wanted to share my happiness and show that I can still enjoy food and not worry too much about my weight. Yes, TOM comes and always puts doubt in my mind for about 6 days, but then he leaves and I feel a whole lot better. I’m starting to accept that my weight does fluctuate and I can’t be too bummed about it. It’s life.
