I weighed 178.0 this morning. I spent my early 30's stuck at 177 and thought I was fat. Alas. That is just 13 pounds from the goal the doctor set for me, and 24 from the goal I set for me. The closer I get to those goals though, the more I think my goal should be more like 145, particularly when I see BMI charts. But...I don't want to set unrealistic expectations and start thinking I've failed as I did before. I'm telling myself now, that if I don't lose another pound, I'm still successful. Now if I could just make myself believe it. :)
On a happier note, I've been to Publix and loaded up on fresh fruit for the week. J-boy has even agreed to do his own modified version of the 7 day diet with me starting on Monday. He's not going to do that vile, nasty soup either. He makes a fairly nutritious vegetable soup that he is going to use for his base. I can't get past the tomatoes. That, and having all the food stirred up together like that. I have control issues. I need to know what is going in my mouth!!
I had another successful visit to Stein Mart. I got some really cute tops. Suddenly last week none of my tops fit. I still have a lot of t-shirts, but since I work in an office in a management position, I don't get to wear those to work often. It seems like all along this journey, one article of clothing is suddenly lacking in my wardrobe. First no skirts fit, so I made a run on Goodwill. Then no shorts, so I went to Ladies of Charity, a local thrift store. It is my favorite, but it is only open certain times of the year. Today I needed blouses for work, and I saw SM was having a 12 hour sale. I got 7 tops that are stylish and suitable for the office. Four of them were on sale, and the lady in front of me had a spare coupon she shared with me, so I got an additional 30% off. I like it when that happens.
