Where you just know you did everything right? I think a lot of you do, actually, but I'm really just starting to get there. Yesterday was a day where I did right by my band. I ate three small, healthy meals, and one super healthy snack. I did more than an hour of exercise. And I felt SO good about myself. I have had so much trouble getting past the mid 230s- my weight was hovering between 238 and 235 and just wouldn't go lower. It finally went to 234 when my friends left to go home for Aus and I said buh-bye junk food. But still, it wasn't Tuesday, Tuesday's weigh day and I just really wanted something good.
I stepped on the scale this morning, and was chanting to myself, please 233, please 233... Well guess what... 232.4! Wehoo! I now know that I CAN get to my more reasonably re-assessed goal of under 230 for the wedding. The goal of 220 totally freaked me out, it was TOO BIG and so beyond what I could imagine that I think subconsciously shut down and kinda sabotaged myself. The fact is, without being 100% on every single day, I am losing weight at my reasonable rate. I'd like more of my days to be like the one I had yesterday - I'm planning on re-creating it today. But I also need to be OK with the fact that not every day will be, so to make good use of the good circumstances and choices while I have them.
