FINALLY! It feels like it's been forever since I have actually been down on the scale. Fortunately, today (my actual weigh in day) I was down! I'm now getting closer and closer to my goal! YIPEE!!!
Things have been a little be off lately. I'm in a bit of a "funk". I have been dealing with a bit of insomnia lately. I don't really understand. Things are going fairly well. I am experimenting with new foods/recipes, I'm cooking a lot more, I'm being a lot more active, these are all things I love, yet, something is off. I wonder, is this common? I question what the "off" feeling could be, but I can't actually put my finger on it. It could be my lack of social options (especially when I desperately need some social time), it could be the fact that I'm struggling financially, it could be that I am running out of clothes to wear and I don't have any money to get clothes to replace them. I actually tried to wear two pair of dress pants last week and they looked awful. One pair actually looked like I was wearing black pajama bottoms. The fact that I don't have any clothes should be fabulous! But the thought of going to work in pajamas is not so appealing. I sure hope this is just a phase and I jump out of it quickly! I also hope that the clothes fairy is nice to me and shows me some mercy. There is a "clothes fairy" right?
This past week marked my 5 month surgiversary (as many other bloggers like to call it). I can't believe it's been 5 months. Then again, I can't believe it's been only 5 months. Sometimes it feels like I've been at this forever!!! I am so excited to have this chance and this opportunity to change my life. I can't wait to get closer to reaching my goals. I feel such a sense of accomplishment with each step closer. I can't believe I'll be under 200 lbs in just 3 pounds!!!! Sure, that could potentially be a month away (I hope not), but it's only 3 pounds! That's nothing when I see that I've already shed 66!!!! I get so envious of others (when I read their blogs) and see where they are in their journey. I can't wait to be at that point and be able to say, "I wouldn't trade this for the world"!
