About four months ago when I got my band I don't think I would have believed you if you told me I would be down 56.8lbs by the beginning on April. I would have been ok, that's a perfect world. But here I am! I am 2.8lbs away from my May 7th 60lb goal. I am so happy I made the choice to get my band. I am so happy I am changing my life!
I made almond cinnamon sugar cookies this weekend and cinnamon apple crumble bread as well. I am sending half of the products to work with the hubs and I am taking half to my work. Over the weekend I had about four cookies, but I worked it into the days. I had nothing but a taste of the bread to make sure it came out ok. Very yummy by the way! I love to bake and cook and knowing that I have a new view of food and the world around me I can know I will be fine.
I will admit that I have not worked out in 2 weeks. Its hard to wrap my head around starting to work out again until I am down a couple more pounds. I also feel great about working out but horrible about the numbers going up on the scale. I know I know it will go down after the first week. I think I am so scarred to see that number go up that I am going to just fast walk around our neighborhood. That is about 2 miles. It will be good for the dog too. I'm justifying this all in my head so I know what your all thinking. Feel free to share your opinion.
This is going to be a the first of a few excited ramblings on six flags. We are buying season passes this year because I will finally be able to fit into the coasters again!! I am so freaking excited about that! Roller coasters have always been so fun for me! Then I couldn't fit into them for a couple years, it was embarrassing and demoralizing. I had lost about 40lbs at one part and almost fit but not quite. Now I know I will fit!!! So OMG I am thrilled for six flags this year!!!
Also I had a nice little NSV on Wednesday last week that I didn't share with you and Ronnie pointed that out. I was in my psychology class looking around and realized I was not the biggest person in there! I know that's kinda shallow to think but that realization felt awesome! I wish I could share my success with the people in my class that are heavy. I know I have a long way to go but I am starting to feel smaller.
Happy Monday everyone!
