So I lost 1.5lbs (and maybe a tad more but want to weigh-ha!-on the side of caution)! This is a HUGE deal! I have never intentionally lost a pound before- it was always because of different birthcontrol or moving or being sick- never actually trying and this IS! Losing weight is not the whole goal- being fit is and I have totally noticed changes in my body from working out over the last few months. I always ask W to feel my abs and stare at my butt in a non-sexual manner (he thinks its weird). The issue is is that though the cellulite is less apparent on my ass, I am bigger. My stomach now has abs and fat and my ass- my ass is getting larger for the same muscle+fat reason. My ass, though nice, does not need to get bigger.
My friend Vi told me a while ago that my body was building muscle so I might not lose weight unless I starve myself. I might actually gain weight but then it will start falling off. I hope this is that becuase then it might mean that those unsightly layers might fall off. I love having a little cushion but right now I just have a little too much.
Oh- this is not going to turn into a weight-loss blog. THere are too many out there that are super good so I can’t compete- same with design blog, art blog, photography blog, fashion blog. But I am proud of myself so that is why I am talking about it today. Losing 1.5lbs is underlining turning over the accountability leaf.
I also want to mention that I did not spend a single penny today which is harder then you think- I did not grab coffee, or an afternoon snack or lunch or anything. That is pretty cool and pretty hard for me.
I think its the writing it down part (I know its only been 2 days- we shall see how this goes in the next couple months). Twice I have wanted cookie dough or icecream and I wanted to buy workout pants (at the end of my laundry cycle so my workout clothes are awful) but I didn’t do any of those things. I would have if I didn’t have to share what I spent or ate because I respect your opinion and hopefully this will teach me to respect my own. aaaawwwww……
Anyway- nothing much else happened today. Walking home from the gym across the Broadway Bridge was nice- almost balmyish.
Oh- I almost forgot- I didn’t get into OHSU. Don’t feel bad- its a good thing. I am excited about Philadelphia. Hopefully, this blog lean towards that adventure as we push forward with planning. Philly…come visit!
