Good news!

6 Oct

About damn time, right?  Today was another very difficult day in a string of very difficult days, but there was a bright spot.  I had a doctor’s appointment this morning, and that meant a date with my nemesis … the scale.  But, I made that bad boy my bitch.  I’ve lost weight.  (Can I get a WOOHOO!?)

I’ve been hesitant to post numbers on this site, other than what’s in the little blurb in the “about me” section.  (Especially in the light of the link I posted to yesterday about healthy living sites possibly not being quite so healthy.)  So instead of saying how much, I’ll just say that I was pleasantly surprised.

I’m also trying to not do cartwheels around the house and jump for joy, because come on, a woman’s weight fluctuates naturally anyways.  Also, because I knew I was going in for blood tests, I had to fast.  So I got on the scale after having only a glass of water for 12 hours.

I must admit, I was already starting to feel fed up with WW, and fed up with counting every single thing that goes into my mouth.  (Insert “that’s what she said” joke here.)  And I do mean every … little … thing.  For example, I now know that three Jolly Ranchers equals two points.  And if I have three Jolly Ranchers, I report those two points.  I even report shit like broccoli, which basically doesn’t even have points unless you eat it by the bucket.

And I also have to admit that I haven’t stepped foot into the gym in a while.  (Oh, and I won’t be stepping foot in one for a while as I injured my ankle last night by kicking the coffee table.  I was just trying to put my feet up, but the damn thing was closer to the sofa than normal.  It hurts to walk.)  I’m too busy obsessing over what I’m eating and how often I’m eating and whether or not I’m sticking to my points.  I’m planning on giving myself another week to get used to this complete eating overhaul (I miss Smashburger) before I get back at it.  Seriously, you have no idea the time involved in planning meals and snacks and cooking and prepping food in advance so I won’t be tempted to turn to junk food.  It’s exhausting.

Exhausting, but worth it.
