Faking It Til I Make It...
Wednesday, August 22, 2012
So I would be lying if I said I was feeling 100%, but I'm getting closer each day. In the mean time I am simply faking it til I make it. I am going through the motions. I am tracking, and I actually did 5 miles on my Walk Away The Pounds for the first time ever, so that is really helping me to get my exercise mojo back!
I am learning how to deal with "bad days" much better, thanks to all the advice from my Spark Friends. It's funny, because I forget skinny and fit people have problems and bad days too. But they still do what they gotta do don't they? They don't sit on the couch and binge for days and days. They learn how to cope with stresses and low times in healthier ways and I am trying to learn to do that as well.
I peeked at the scale today (my weigh in day isn't until Friday) and I saw 229 for the first time in over a year. July of 2011 I weighed about 228 after I broke my leg, but I lost a ton of muscle. I did lose legitimate fat also, but some was attributed to muscle loss. So getting back to this weight is exciting because I am definitely stronger and my body is much different. Seeing just a glimpse of the 220's got me excited again. I hope it can stick around til Friday so I can legitimately say I am in the 220's. *Fingers crossed*.
Thanks again to everyone, because if I would have gone off the deep end this week like I wanted to, I would not be close to even MAYBE seeing the 220's this Friday.
