Wednesday Weigh In

imageOnly 1 1/2 lbs. Okay, I am a bit bummed out.  I expected more but at least I didn’t gain 1 1/2 lbs.  And that is still a total of 40 quarter pounders lost so far.  And on the bright side, I’m not craving a Quarter Pounder.  It’s all about perception.  Now I could have gotten so bummed out and said “Screw it!  I knew this wasn’t going to work!”  But I’m not even feeling the least bit tempted to say that.  When I look at the big picture and realize that is 10 pounds in 3 weeks, that is a milestone for me and I should feel proud.  Sometimes we have very unrealistic expectations.  Gone are the days when I was young and could skip a couple of meals and lose 5 lbs.  Those L B’s just don’t come off that easy the older we get.  So today I will feel good about myself and proud of myself that I was able to rid my body of 10 extra pounds it does not need nor will miss.
