It’s not so bad. We’ve had beautiful weather this week. The kind of beautiful weather I moved to Ohio for. Highs in the 70s, lows in the 50s. Sunny, sweet, spring days. The kind of weather a bride hopes for. I’ve so enjoyed it, but after a week or so, I think we all begin to take it for granted, to forget that weather is something we have to plan around here in the midwest. Don’t ASSUME you will have beautiful weather when you have time to do yard work, or a picnic, or any other outdoor activity. If you’re planning more than a week or so out, you’ve got a 50/50 shot at best, depending on the time of year.
My weight fluctuated hugely this week. On Thursday morning I was at 190.4. That’s almost 10 lbs down on WW, and nearly 15 total. This morning’s official weigh in was not so lovely, though. 194.4 lbs, up a little less than a pound from last week. Weird. Well, not really. I was not very careful this weekend. I did not not track well, and completely ignored counting alcoholic beverages. Must change that habit this week. I know that deprivation doesn’t work in the long run, but I am determined to be at 185 or lower before I go to Florida for my BFF’s 40th Birthday Party in two weeks. I won’t look like a super model, but at least I won’t look like a cow. So, this week and next, I will be keeping my total points at least 5 points below my limit and I will not use any of my weekly points. I will not drink alcohol (much), and I will keep my largest meal to lunch. I’d like to say that I won’t eat anything after 7pm, but that may not be practical. I can’t sustain that lifestyle for long, but I think I can do it for a couple weeks before a trip.
On the good side of this weight loss journey, I can feel the difference. Clothes fit just a little differently. I can cross my legs again. My bras fit. So, there’s that.
