So, today was a CRAZY day in the class I was subbing. CRAZY. It was picture day and I think the change in schedule had everyone thinking it wasn’t regular school. Anyway, I was talking to a teacher’s aide and I told her, “Well, I did have one good piece of news today.”
She says, “What?” and I told her that I’ve lost 19.5 pounds.
“What are you doing?!?!?”, she exclaimed and we began to talk about not just starting diets, but taking steps toward permanent changes.
I had talked to her about possibly trying to lose some weight at the end of the year last spring. It was a good feeling to actually be talking about it again and have a little something to show for all my talk. 🙂
Also…. on another subject.
After church tonight my husband told me to stop and get the kids something to eat. They requested McDonald’s and we drove through. I didn’t order anything for me.
When I got home I just had maybe half of a small french fry worth of fries and then 2 bites of his whopper and 2 of their Big Macs. It was just enough to get a taste.
Like at the Mexican Food potluck they had at school today. I had about two bites of a few different things. I did splurge on ONE dessert that was super delicious and worth every single morsel. And I didn’t overeat. It was a great feeling!!! Especially when I saw some others eating three different desserts and I knew I wasn’t one of them.
Oh… one more thing… and I’ll end with this.
I told my MIL tonight about my loss. I jokingly said, “Now you’ll never let me eat!” She grinned while shaking her head “No.” and pointed her finger down. Who would’ve ever thought that she’d help me in my weight loss. Not me.
I guess that’s enough for one night. I’m exhausted and need to sleep and get energy for a busy day tomorrow!
Good work on the eating today. I am not sure I would be strong enough to take just a bite or two of fast food. That was such a big part of my eating before I made the change. It is better for me to avoid it.
Great work again on the loss.
I'm very proud of you! 20 pounds is almost 10% for you. Awesome work.
My MIL keeps trying to get me admit that I've lost more weight than I have (only 15-18 lbs from my high point). I keep telling her it's the exercise, but she is not of the weight-training generation and doesn't believe me 🙂
I think that's wonderful that you made such great choices at two different events. Way to go!
