I had my husband take a picture of me. Today I weighed 198 and the first picture was when I was 223 if I remember correctly. I can tell some difference but then we are always more critical of ourselves than others are don't you think? (They are both on my sidebar to your right).
I am really happy to be in onederland but 198 only represents a 2 lb. loss for the month of January so I am going back to weighing weekly and being accountable to the others in my Behavior Blast Challenge. Although we are concentrating on behaviors, there's nothing wrong with reporting a weekly weight as well as the daily goal of behavior change. There is room for more in the Challenge. This week is a "coast" week. Our first week was 64 oz. of water per day and that was all that was reported. Last week we continued with the water and added exercising 3 - 5 times per week. This week is a "coast" week where we just continue with the water and exercise. After this week of coasting we are each going to declare the behavior we will be working on. Jill is going to work on tracking her food. I am going to work on slowing down as I eat (I may have to work on that for more than one week). I plan to eat with my left hand, chew and swallow, take a drinik, then and only then take another bite. What do you think of that plan? Paul is still thinking about it. Georgia has come back to us so she will be deciding on her behavior soon. Just let me know if you want to be on the spreadsheet that I update each day. I will need your email address, your blog address, and your real name if you got creative with your blog name. We would love to have you join us.
I wore the same top in the picture but those jeans are gone as they were too big. These black jeans are almost too big but I put them on and wore them before they got stretched out from wearing them. I have to wear a belt. The only jeans I have now that really fit are in the laundry. I am going to a local consignment shop called "Designers Consigners". They only accept really nice things for consignment. I am hoping to find some jeans there.
Take care of yourselves and hang in there. If this was easy, everyone would be slim. It takes hard work, and commitment, and the willingness to endure some hunger. Let's all stay true to ourselves and what we want out of life.
