Week 1 Complete
Monday, July 05, 2010
Today the scale read 184.7. Down 3.4 lbs from last week. I seriously stepped on the scale at least four more times and it didn't change once. I prayed that I at least lost one pound. I was surprised to see three. Mother in Law (MIL) is in town this weekend and we ate out Saturday night when she arrived, and cooked out on the grill last night. We also worked pretty hard repaving the drive way with Hubs.
Today I took MIL grocery shopping. One of her favorite things to do when she visits is to cook stuff for our freezer. I was amazed while walking around the store with her how much will power I had. Hubs had requested a number of items since it was hot. One of them being ice cream. We brought back two different flavors. And MIL insisted I pick up my favorite too. I had to keep telling her that my will power sucked (which it does) because chances are the half gallon she wanted me to buy would be gone by the end of the week...probably sooner. And I'd be kicking myself for not watching it closer.
I also realized how much I say no to, and it kind of surprised me. MIL asked several times if I would like different casseroles made up, if she could buy us more food than what we needed. And besides the fact that I was trying to keep her grocery bill down (Yes, she cooks, she cleans and she pays for the grocery bill!) there was just some stuff I didn't want making it's way into the house. Like the freshly baked cream puffs, or the two liter bottles of soda. Not saying that I don't treat myself, but I really want to lose the weight.
Eleven weeks to go until my first dress fitting for that beautiful black dress. My first appointment was success and less stress, since the woman knows she can alter the top although it will cost less if I can lose ten pounds. Chances are I'll lose the weight because I'm not stressed out about fitting into it. Same think happened with my wedding dress.
Happy Belated 4th of July everyone!
