Weighin In

So...this week I was really good, only going over my points by two on one day. I have exercised. I have not had so much water, though. I got on the scale and it said I weighed the same. So I went pee. And it said I was .5 less. I would be torn about whether or not to count it, but frankly, my self esteem needs to count it, so I'm going to. I'm starting to understand that if I really want to drop these last 12 pounds that I'm going to have to put forth an unbelieveable amount of effort...

Goals for the week:
1 - Decide if I am really committed to losing the last 10 lbs. I know I can lose the next 2, but I need to make a decision beyond that because that will take radical measures. Measures like not eating dessert everyday! It will require me to choose mostly fruits and veggies. I like them, but do I like them enough? Would I be OK with 140? Do I want to evaluate at 135? You get the picture...
2 - Water. You'd think I'd be getting the hang of this being that it's roughly 1 billion degrees here. But I haven't. I've decided to go back to buying individual water bottles, as I seem to drink more water when these are available. More expensive, yes. Better for my body than nothing or soda, YES.
3- Keep up the exercise. I did good this week.

Good for you! You are doing hard work. Maybe taking a break at 140 and maintaining for a couple of weeks will help you to decide where you want to go from there. Besides, with all this incredible exercise you are getting, it will give your body a little time to readjust.
You are a rockstar!! So proud of you.

And, kudos for making such great choices during a stressful, potentially high emotional eating week!!

You are really doing great!
