Just thought I would add that. It is amazing how we can let the scale dictate how we are going to feel that day.
I have been doing really well. I completed my goals for last week. Got to gym twice (would have aimed for more had I not been sick). The water thing is very new to me and such a big deal when I finish my day and smile knowing I have drank my required amount. Last night was funny though, at 9pm I realize that I have only drank half of my water so I nursed my 64 oz bottle for 45 minutes and finished it. I knew I would be up peeing all night but I could not let my day slip by without drinking it. I haven't missed one yet since I mentioned it last week. I have not eaten any fast food. My biggest challenge was this weekend in the evening, wanting to snack. When I did snack I picked some special K crackers (portioned out) and one light laughing cow cheese. Last night I made some light soup. I am very proud of myself.
Even this afternoon when my son and I were out running around. I had to pick up a few things from Walmart and he asked if he could get a burger from McDonalds. I ordered for him and went and got my things. I did not get myself anything. I waited till I got home and had a Lean Cuisine. VERY COOL!
Funny moment when we were driving home and he says to me "Mom, I cant wait until you get the lap band so when we are having burgers and you cant finish yours then I can have the rest". He is one of those kids that can scarf down a burger in no time and still want more. Luckily he gets his dad's genes very slender and fast metabolism. Im stuck with the German genes - short and round.
Ok, on to this week's goals:
1. Gym, 3 times
2. 64 oz of water a day
3. No fast food junk
4. Record my food
Number 4 is my only new one and it certainly is a doozy. Only time I was good at recording my food was when I was training and my PT was checking it. I know it is something that I need to do and I am going to copy Lap Band Gal and use post-it notes. I hope she doesn't mind. I am inspired by her, she is in maintenance mode and doing great. I am just a baby, I have a lot to learn.
