Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss/weigh in/ lessons learned
I enjoyed being reminded today of the wonderful Dr. Seuss. I loved reading his books growing up and now reading them to my boys. Dr. S was a smart cookie.
I weighed in today at 180.5, I am down 2.1 pounds this week!! I can feel those 170's just right around the corner. Once I hit the 170's I will have officially lost more weight then any of my past attempts at weight loss the last 10 years. I will only be 20 something pounds away from my goal weight. Am I dreaming?? Is someone going to wake me up and I will still be obese?? Hell no, I have worked hard over the past 5 months. I remember one of my earlier posts that talked about "Earning your Body", I am realizing exactly what that means and what it takes. This band is a tool...plain and simple. I know when I am following the 10 golden rules and the times that I am not. It makes a difference. I have also learned to be kind to yourself but not too kind that you slip back into bad habits.
Tonight, I tested one of the rules and i made a mistake. We went to Chipotle for dinner tonight. I haven't drank soda pop since the night before my surgery and tonight I took a big swig of my husbands diet coke. Wrong idea.....instantly my eyes started to bulge and water, I got that terrible pain in my chest and knew I need to go to the bathroom and PB. Yep, I frothed at the mouth like a rabbid dog!! No fun. I felt so terrible I couldn't even eat any dinner. Good thing is I don't feel like doing that ever again..so I guess I am fully cured of my Diet Coke addiction.
Well I hope you all are doing well and have a great weekend!
