well first, I just want to thank everyone for their kind comments yesterday. Yes, I realize that nothing I wrote about was the end of the world. trust me, I know that there is a lot worse that happens to much better people than myself. However, Im sure we have all had those days where everything sucks, and that was yesterday for me! I got a lot of it sorted out, at least the things that could be helped, and others, I will just have to accept and move on.
With that said, I am totally rejoicing that I made it to 40 pounds lost!! It doesnt really feel real, but I am definitely happy. I cant believe that I only have 7 pounds to lose. And here I was a week ago worrying that I was stuck!
I definitely stuck to healthy eating over the weekend, and exercised 3 times last week! I was trying for four, but after my horrendous day yesterday, that did not happen. But I did pilates, cardio, and weights. A mixture of just about everything and I believe that is what helped me drop such a large amount this past week (2.6!).
I also went shopping over the weekend at nonplus size stores! Very exciting. Sure I could shop at some places in the past that had both plus size and regular sizes, or stores that sold bigger sizes, but to walk into a place like Express and fit in the clothes there was a big eye opener. I still looked at the clothes there and thought, no way I can fit in this. But I would. I guess I still dont SEE how I look or how much weight I have lost.
I tried a new meal this past week too that I will have to post later in the week because it was pretty yummy. I know trying new meals on a weekly basis helps me stay interested in food and enjoying what I am eating.
Plan for the coming week is to just focus on my eating this weekend (since it is Easter and will be attending 2 easter parties) and getting that exercise in.
