I just had to do a quick brag session and say I ate really well today.
I am on a mission and I really, really (I mean REALLY) hope I don't fail this time. The weight on the scale is sinking in and it's not pretty. I keep thinking of where I was even a year ago (10 pounds lighter) and then the year before that (another 5 pounds lighter than that) and it depresses me that I do this to my body.
Unfortunately for my body (and I think most females), eating is like 75% of the equation for weight loss. If I exercise like crazy (think P90X), but still eat the same, my weight and size doesn't budge.
The goal is 5-6 small meals a day, hopefully more vegetables (a super tough thing for me) and a good balance of protein and whole carbs in each meal.
I am also so very glad I started this today. Am I the only person who weighs 5 pounds more at the doctor's office? I have no clue why I had to be weighed for an allergy testing appointment, but they did it - I could have passed out from the number I saw because it's been about 9 years since I've seen a number like that.
Maybe that's what I needed. A good scare.
On a side note: the allergy testing was successful. I had two huge welts with a ton of redness in the trees department. Start allergy shots tomorrow. I am hoping by the end of the year my symptoms will be near gone and am hoping the fatigue I feel in the afternoons goes with it. I have a theory my fatigue is related to the sinus issues I get with the allergies - the doctor isn't convinced. What does he know?
