On Monday, January 17th, I decided enough was enough, and I was going to start watching my portions again. After my pants shrunk (wink – wink) over the holidays, and me not being able to stop shoving my face full of food, I had to put an end to the over-eating.
Within two days, I lost 4 lbs. It amazes me how much the body can shed in a short period of time. I don’t know if it was water weight, or just the fact that I didn’t have as much food in my system, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The biggest kicker to me is that I’m not even hungry. I seriously could eat a half a box of cereal in the morning, or even a ham, egg and cheese bagel (homemade, of course) in the past. But this morning, I wasn’t even hungry enough to eat the full ½ cup of oatmeal with raisins and honey. I gave most of it to Lana.
So…we will see where this weight loss goes. As much as I’d love to see the numbers on my new scale (I got for Christmas) go down, I just want to be healthy. I want to feel my pants get bigger instead of smaller, and I want to have a picture taken of me that I’m not afraid to post on the blog or facebook.
I am still not brave enough to list my weight on the blog. I see people that I think are my size, but they weigh 40 lbs less than me! When I told a friend here at work how much I weigh, she said, “You cant tell!” Well, I can tell. And quite frankly, the numbers don’t lie.
