Starting Over

Standard

 

Yesterday a friend told me to weigh-in with her.  After a crazy cross country move and eating out for two weeks I was afraid to step on the scale.  I did and let’s say, UGH!!!

This is so depressing.  Added back quite a bit a weight, but I knew it would happen.  I knew it was coming.  I told Tim I was going to start over on Monday, tomorrow.  And technically I am going to count tomorrow as Day 1, but today standing in line at McDonald’s to eat out for what is hopefully the last time for a little bit I decided no I need to start now.  I ordered a chicken sandwich – no bun.  I had no fries and I had no soda!

I am thankful that Serene and Pearl put it in their book don’t wait just start over again in 3 hours.  I am making strides towards a healthier me.  I am going to follow Trim Healthy Mama to the best of my ability because I have seen in the past how it works.

After brunch, we finally went to get groceries.  We didn’t get our fridge until the middle of the week and everything has been super hectic thus the delay.  * I seriously do not know how people eat out everyday.  One, it is super expensive! And Two, UGH! When we got home I gave Olivia the rest of my caramel m&m’s that I had (the reason I was waiting til Monday).

This is almost like ground zero for me.  Over the last couple weeks I have resorted back to soda and eating sweets.  Why?  It is comfort in times of stress is my best guess.  And there were a lot of very late night and super early mornings and the caffeine pulled me through.

Here is my photo food journal for today 8/13/17.

I know I can do this. I know I can be a better me.  There is no way I will hit my goal of 199 by 29 now as that is only a week away.  I would love to see me hit my diet bet. 192.8 by November 8th.  Thats 25.2 lbs in 12 weeks.  It will be tough; but I’m going to try my hardest!
