Unfortunately, there is no weight loss to report. No weight gain either. There is always a bright side :-).
I'm feeling a bit discourage and encouraged at the same time. I feel like those people in the biggest loser. You see them working out, sweating, and then no weight loss or a gain. I also wonder if I'm falling into that game-playing trap. Is it about losing weight, the challenge, or living a fit life? I have to admit a large part of me loves the weight loss part.
I went into the office the other day and a co-worker was going on and on about how good I looked. I guess she hasn't seen me since the weight loss. I like that attention. But, is all this hard worked so that others can give me attention or that I can feel better?
I've been taking a different approach lately and focusing on the healthy lifestyle choices I am making. I didn't even recognize myself the other day. I was soooooo tempted to have a piece of this gooey, pecan ice cream, turtle thing Crystal has in the freezer. I took one look at it and then thought, no way! I made myself a triple berry smoothie instead. I stuck half of it in the freezer and drank the other half. Problem solved.
I've got to also take a closer look at my caloric intake. I'm not on any particular diet or eating plan. I want to learn how to eat like a "regular" person. I've been working on portion control, whole grains, and fresh fruits and veggies.
Today, this weekend I purchased collard greens, green beans, Arkansas black apples (never had them before - best apple ever), greek yogurt (never had it before - had some for breakfast this morning - love it), ginger granola, sliced almonds, and shrimp.
I still haven't uploaded pics of my meals because I'm having technical difficulties. I think I need a new computer.
