Almost back

Well I am allllmost back to where I was before this sunburn swelling nonsense. I am down to 161 so basically I have lost almost 2 pounds in the past 2 days which just proves it was mostly swelling. I am still not down another .2 like I was over a week ago, but that I am blaming on TOM.

I had a good weekend, went to a graduation party and ate on plan, and got in my exercise both days. I will admit, it was hard to get into at first after taking a week off, but its well worth it. I am also glad the swelling has gone down because it was almost freaky how much it made me feel overweight again. My legs and arms were huge and it kind of messed with my mind a bit because I realized just how much I fear gaining weight again. To see myself like that for almost a week really bothered me because I just felt horrible about the way I looked (and not just because I was a red peeling freak). Having a taste of the "old" me, I definitely want to continue on with the "new" me and never go back!

i'm glad to hear the swelling has gone down and you are starting to feel better again. that was such a bad sunburn! mine have only gotten bad enough for redness and peeling so i feel for you. great job getting the workouts in over the weekend. it's tough to get back into a routine but so worth it once you're there.
