I weighed in last Wednesday at 184. Then I weighed in today (Monday) at 183.25. Not a huge difference, but I did at least lose more than 1/2 pound in order to qualify for a free two week contest thing they were doing at the SlimGenics office! I also have already qualified to get an extra 6 weeks with a different promotion! I know that I’m ahead of schedule with the weigh loss and that I don’t necessarily need those extra weeks, but it was a good motivator and I just like contests in general.
Well, I survived the Christmas season. I can’t say that it was all that easy, but I managed, just like I always do. I had planned to stick to the SG plan most days and possibly just stray a bit on Saturday while at Christmas with my extended family, however I ended up going off more than anticipated. I have to say though that it could have been much worse and I could have totally ate everything in sight everyday, but I’m learning to have will power and to make better choices.
On a happy note, I happen to go through my jewelry box yesterday and realized that my ring that I bought as a “mother’s ring” fits me again!!! It has mine and my daughter’s birthstones in it and I really really really like the ring, so I was stoked that it fit once again. Also, I now realized that I’ll have to go shopping for shirts. All my shirts are baggy and I look frumpy in them. Before I would have been fine looking like that because I would have been trying to hid my rolls, however now I feel more confident in my body and want to look nice. It’s a good feeling to be gaining some confidence for the first time in my life.
