Sometimes you have to let it go

1555503_10100345177633485_1844004359_nToday’s blog post has 2 topics. First and foremost, this week’s weigh-in!

Saturday morning’s weigh in at weight watchers went well! Last week I was up 1 lb. This week I made up for it and came down 2.8! Leaving me at 215.8! a mere 16 pounds away from my first goal! WOO! I did not exercise on Saturday, as I usually don’t. (Tuesdays and Saturdays are my “off” days.) I did go to the gym yesterday. Switched it up a bit. Instead of heading right for the elliptical, I decided to use the treadmill for a bit. I worked out there for 20 minutes, then used the elliptical for 35 minutes.

It’s been about 3 weeks of working out now and I’m noticing the change in how I feel. I want to go to the gym now, and waking up hasn’t been as difficult in the mornings. It’s great.

This morning I stepped on the scale and it said I was 207.9! HOW DID I LOSE 8LBS IN 2 DAYS!!!! That was pre-shower. So, after my shower, and I was FULLY dressed it said I was 211! STLL! 4 lbs! I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what tomorrow morning holds in store for me! But I’ve been doing really well with portion control. The smaller plates and my food scale have made a huge difference.

In other news, I have a friend who I feel I need to distance myself from and this is something very difficult for me. She’s been my friend for quite some time and one of the few friends I thought I had here in Cincinnati. But sometimes, you have to move on and distance yourself from some drama and unwanted words.

I’m hoping to stay strong with this and hope to make more of an effort with some of the ladies I’ve become friends with over the past year.

I’m hoping my day stays awesome and goes by really fast, as well as yours!
