Group Therapy...

Stayed on eating plan yesterday. And I have to admit I did step on the scales a couple of times this past week but it wasn't an obsession like it had been. I think that week of having it covered up helped. I was really tickled one evening when I did it that my weight was the same as the weigh-in morning but it is back up this morning one pound. Official weigh-in is tomorrow and I have been really good this past week except one day so hopefully it will pay off. If not I won't be discouraged, because I already know that the weight loss isn't consistent with me at this point.

As I'm setting here typing this I'm wondering why I want to get down to 150. I already feel better, a LOT better. I already look better, a LOT better. I don't have anyone in my life to look better for except myself. So maybe I'll just keep doing what I'm doing because it makes me feel better. My BMI is still in the overweight range but not in the obese range anymore. I know! ::did you just see the light bulb light up:: I'll just keep going until I can wear a large shirt comfortably. Then reevaluate the situation. Sounds like a plan. Course I haven't been to the doctor in over a year to see what he thinks I should do and maybe that would be something I should do. I'll think that one over too.

Have to go to the dentist tomorrow and I really hate that. Hopefully this will be the last tooth he will be working on for a while. Well, since it will be another crown it will take at least two trips to get it finished, but...

It is really funny about this blogging stuff. I whine or rant about something that is bothering me and then the next day it isn't bothering me. Sometimes the problem returns and thankfully you all don't seem to mind me reiterating my problems so it continues to help to vent. This blog world is very therapeutic.

See Ya...

It is theraputic isn't it?? :-)

I think your plan to continue on and reevaluate every so often is a great plan. And why is it that 150 seems to be such a 'perfect' goal mark that we set. 150 is my 'perfect goal weight' that I have in my head. I may not make it..but that's what's in my head. (and i have another friend that is striving for the same mark)

Next time you visit your doctor asked him/her what they think about your goal. In my case the dr is just pleased that I have lost enough weight to reduce my meds tremendously. We evaluate my loss every three months when I have blood work done and reduce the meds accordingly. My goal is to be off the diabetes meds and blood pressure meds for good by the end of the year. Keep up the good work! It is good to see someone so POSITIVE about their success without judging themselves so hard by the number on the scale.

Hey, I haven't thought about that make you goal a size instead of a number. I think your on to something. You do need to get your doctor's input but I haven't gotten mine. So who am I to say.

UGH on the dentist. Not my favorite person.

Hope you do well on your weigh in tomorrow.

Good Lord, I should've had on sunglasses for this big lightbulb moments. {Picture me, patting you on the back} Nice little epiphany you had for yourself there. Way to go!

To be honest, you do look great just the way you are. Thin? No, but I'm not sure you'd look as good thin. I like the idea of picking a goal size, or even mini-goals until you get to where you feel good on the inside AND the outside.

Now, re: yesterday's post...volunteer work? {ducking}

Vent away girl. I think blogging is a little like an AA meeting (I have never been but heard about) Don't let yourself talk you into stopping. So what if it is slow, just keep up the good work. I was so bad today at hubbys B.D. party. There is always tomorrow.
