Today was another tearful day. Mid morning I had had enough and went for a good, long, hilly walk. I cried most of the way, but by the time I was done I felt a bit better. I got in a lot of activity throughout the day and even though I was already to 100% and had earned 5pp, I put laundry away piece by piece and racked up another 3pp!
In the afternoon my daughter and I went to visit my friend. I met her in high school and her mom took care of my daughter when she was little. We were there a few hours and it was a nice visit and break from home. They had made a ton of cookies and had a ton of candy out. I had one bite of my daughter's cookie and told my friend's husband not to be a "food pusher" when he told me this is the season to eat. I am happy with my decision and combined with other good decisions I made throughout the week, and all of my activity, I was down .8 at weigh in this morning!
I am super happy with that loss because I didn't track pp at all this week...I did write everything I ate down which kept me aware, but I decided I am not going to worry about tracking pp values until January when my husband goes back to work. I am going to make sure I am active everyday and be mindful of what I eat.
When I got home and told my mom how much I lost, she looked disappointed. Yesterday she told me she didn't understand why I am not losing more weight. I told her it was a combination of things...not getting enough rest, being stressed out, being upset over my dad, and the list goes on. Comments like the one she made make me feel like a failure. Her look this morning made me feel like crap. For about 1/2 a second I thought about raiding the kitchen, instead I made and ate my planned breakfast and am going to get busy on my to do list. This week last year I gained almost 3 pounds so I think a .8 loss is quite fabulous!
Day 119...Although tearful ~ Both Food & Activity ~ Success!
Day 120...It is 9:30am and I have already made it to 42% on my ActiveLink so I know activity will
be good. I am going to make my daily eats good as well...
