Weight in Day 10/12/12 -.8LBS 42.6 LBS down 47.4 left to go!

It was a tough week, I had a great friend in town who I had to meet for drinks and dinner because I love her.  While I had the calories to spend, thanks to working out that morning and before we got together, I still picked the worst thing possible to eat and added two martinis.  Seeing my friend was wonderful and we laughed and hugged almost as much as I needed!  Then the next night I met some great local friends for drinks too, I did stay within my calories but a second night in a row of martinis ( 2 again) probably not so good.  Again good mental medicine for me!  So the fact that I lost at all makes me pretty happy.

Honestly, I am entering my hardest time of the year to stay on track.  Something happens and it is like a switch flips, the “its the holidays so eat everything in sight” switch.  Each day I just focus on doing the best I can and moving as much as possible in hopes of countering any lapses in resolve.  It will be a real challenge for me, but I am hoping my dream of getting my first 14ner in early next summer will keep me on task.

One thing that helped me focus this week, was that I had to buy a smaller pair of jeans this weekend AND I got to buy them at the mall from a Gap….I haven’t bought jeans from an actual store in years, well other than the fat lady’s store but I hated those jeans they were purely purchased so I had jeans, it was wonderful.  I felt almost normal shopping in there, when there were things I could wear actually in the store and I wasn’t returning something I had bought online because they don’t carry my size in the store…

So while it is not a monumental loss, it is a loss none the less and I will take what I can get!
