Wahoo! What a glorious day it is today! At long last, after months of seemingly getting no where I finally beat the odds and I have entered into my HEALTHY WEIGHT RANGE!!! This morning the scale read 144.8. Super happy about that. I still have weight to lose, since if I gain like an ounce I'm overweight again (seriously 145 is THE dividing line). I am just so relieved and so happy to have gotten this far. I finally realized how to break through my plateau, I finally took the necessary steps to do it and while it is hard I am going to keep going. I have fought hard for these last 5 pounds, and I know that the next five will also be a challenge, in fact, I know that the last of this weight is not coming off without a fight. But I am ready, I am willing, and I know what I need to do. Now is the time, this summer the rest of this weight is coming off.
Today was my Mom's birthday and so after doing my morning exercise I made mom's dessert cake, a gluten free chocolate trifle layered with cake, homemade whipped cream, and strawberries. I tried so hard to stay out of the cake, and failed.... but not miserably! I only ate a little piece and I started eating strawberries instead of eating cake. I took the kids to my parents house early so that they could play on the trampoline and I spent most of the afternoon outside on the trampoline and got lots of extra exercise in that way! I felt great today.
I've started drinking Shakeology from Beach Body, and yes it is incredibly expensive, but it sure does work! I don't crash in the afternoon anymore. Even after losing 65 pounds, changing what I eat, when I eat, and drinking more water I would always crash in the afternoon. But shakeology has helped with that.
Tonight I didn't do as good as I would have liked, but I didn't do as bad as I could have either. I ate a few chips and had some popcorn and a small piece of trifle ( I wanted to skip the trifle since I snitched when I was making it, and also skip the chips, but the guacamole needed to be tasted). Not too bad, but I don't know if I will be under 145 tomorrow for weigh in day. Maybe I will just post my weight for today ha!
