After having a big loss last week I was not expecting to lose much this week. Well, the bike rides have been worth it. I lost 3.2 lbs this week! I'm so excited! I've proven to myself that making a plan and sticking to it really is the answer.
And you know what, I don't feel like I'm missing a thing. It's just food. I'm more interested in exploring new things. Things that my fat self hasn't been able to do. Things I didn't think a fat person should do. I have a long way to go but I feel strong. The support I get from blogging here is priceless. I can't say thanks enough, really.
I rode today. When I started out it was sprinkling a little and then all of a sudden, the rain stopped and I rode for 38 minutes. During the first 15 minutes I felt like my legs had weights on them. It just made me pedal harder. The rest of the time just flew by and I was done.
We're going out to dinner for my son's b-day - our favorite, Mexican food. I have a plan to eat slowly. Take a few chips from the bowl and break them into smaller chips and that's all for me from the bowl. Then meal-wise I plan to eat half whatever is on my plate. We will have cake when we get home. My mom made him a great chocolate cake w/choc icing. It's been sitting on the bar in it's glass case. I'll have a tiny piece with very little icing. And a big mug of coffee. It's looking like a great day to celebrate!
Hugs and kisses! If you have a chocolate, savor it, then drink your water!
