Good for you!
Well, that has now become tomorrow, which is weigh in day. But that's okay. I'm going to the grocery store tonight. I'm getting the ingredients I need to make some Indian food for the week... and some veggies and stuff to go with the chicken breasts that I ordered from Omaha Steaks..and figure I'll start everything again tomorrow with the meeting and weigh-in. I've got strawberries, pineapple and cottage cheese (to get my fruits and dairy servings in) for breakfast... so, hopefully that will help. I'll just start counting points again tomorrow, after weigh in. I need to determine whether I want to weigh in or not.
I'm not terribly upset by it (which is the problem, I think)... I am only giving myself a halfhearted effort, lol.. cause I'm sort of unmotivated. What I miss is being healthy. Sometimes... I miss being "in shape" as far as appearance.. but honestly, I'm pretty happy with myself. Oh sure, I could definitely get rid of the belly, and it would be nice to look in the mirror and see someone skinny with a six-pack of abs looking back, but.. I just don't look in the mirror and thing "OH MY GOD YOU NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT".. hehe.. I look in the mirror and think, you look pretty good, but you could stand to lose a few pounds..
It's been a pretty slow process for me to get on board the whole "points" method and figuring out what's what and then actually sticking to what I'm learning, so.. I think they're going to run another class after this series, and I'm sure I'll be up for joining again. I definitely won't be down all my weight by the end of the series, even if I get serious now.
But everyone here is doing so well! I'm so proud of everyone! Even people who have been doing not as well as they would have liked still recognize things and are making changes for the positive.
