I know you are all waiting with bated breath. Did Sam eat the cheeseburger? Did she drown her frustrations in red meat and carbohydrates?
As you can tell from the title (I really need to work on burying the lead!) I did not eat a cheeseburger. I had a half a cup of cottage cheese and a hard boiled egg, plus a triple chocolate Atkins bar.
I weighed in this morning to find out I had lost 2.8 pounds! AND, even better I finally reached my first really big goal! Plus, I reached the 2nd milestone in the weight loss challenge.
I’ve been feeling good pretty much all day. I told the mobster at lunch I wasn’t going to take this victory away from myself. It would be so easy to tell myself, “You still have so far to go,” but I’m pushing those thoughts away today. I had a major milestone I wanted to reach and I did it. I don’t care if that milestone doesn’t mean I’m wearing a size 2 pair of jeans. I’ll be honest with you. Even at my thinnest I didn’t wear a size 2. I’m not size 2 material. I’ve got hips, I’ve got boobs, and as my great grandmother would say, “Ooh, you’re solid!”
I’m finally fitting into jeans that were getting too tight on me. I haven’t worked up the courage to try on the ones I bought at the end of 2017, many of which were a tad too tight anyway. I bought them thinking I would lose 5-10 pounds.
The most recent work clothes I bought when I finally accepted the fact that all of my others were too small for me are now loose on me. Again, haven’t worked up the courage to try on the newer stuff I bought a year or so ago, and definitely haven’t tried on any of the original work clothes. Hopefully by this fall I’ll be wearing them once again.
Tomorrow I run. I’ve been really tired on these shorter 3 mile runs. Maybe it’s because I know I’m only running 3 miles. I’m hoping to make tomorrow a longer run (4.5 miles) and I’m considering doing a short 30 minutes on Sunday.
The cheeseburger is going to have to wait.
