I've got this.

I am more than halfway to my goal #2!! Today I weighed myself and was a bit nervous to do so. See, last week I was not the good girl I should have been. Well, let me explain... no wait, it's coming to me... ummm... well, see there was this thing... errr... can I blame PMS? If so, how often can I use PMS as my scapegoat?

Last week, while horrible in my current visions, was not horrible compared to what used to be considered as such. "Horrible" in current lingo means not eating near as much as I would have even a few months ago on a bad day (fine, a bad week). Today it means eating a huge gigantic delicious bacon cheeseburger ONCE when a friend took me to lunch, rather than prior horrible times when I would each a cheeseburger for lunch and a pizza for dinner and soda and dessert... you get the point. Today it means realizing I ate said deliciousness and then keeping that in my mind the rest of the day, thus keeping me from going insane on the food around me and making it my bitch; this is what old me would have done. Nope, not new me. New me has a handle on things. That is the best way I can put it right now; I've got this. The sane part of my brain has a bit of a Neapolitan (mmmm), err, Napoleon complex. It is the smaller, yet seemingly more powerful part.

Today there are 13.5 pounds to go until I reach my #2 goal of 10%.

Someday soon, Lady Fingers crossed, I will be able to get into the pool. Sure, today it is green and coated with a fuzzy layer of cotton wood tree dander but soon it will be clear and cool on those nice hot days. I can swim off the pounds in no time!

I am so proud of Becky. You are doing such an amazing job at this! Keep it up! You look absolutely gorgeous and I am super jealous! More proud than jealous though but that is only because I take some credit for it. Because I am selfish and need that to make myself feel better about you kicking my ass in this. :O)

  1. Yay, halfway point! That's friggin' awesome! No reason you should be jealous, you are coming up right behind me! Whoo-hoo!

    I had a bad day, too, on Tuesday (binge eating - yuck). I fell off the wagon completely. It was not pretty. But one thing I have noticed with the calorie count website I use, it gives you a bar graph of your calorie intake for each day, either over or under. As long as most of the bars indicate I took in less calories than I used, I'm not so bothered by the (fewer and fewer) days where I... didn't. I consider this a step forward, too, so yay cheeseburger, damn it! There's nothing wrong with *occasionally* indulging yourself!

    Last time: yay!

    See you this weekend!
