For some reason, I just didn't seem to be able to get going this morning. Or this afternoon. I spent most of the day reading and wondering why I felt so down. Finally at around 4:30 I scooted myself out the door to the gym where I had a good cardio workout along with some strength training. That perked me up a little. But, today was definitely one of those lazy days where jammies-all-day was very tempting.
And, for the first time since I began this, I felt my resolve weaken just a tad. But as I pondered eating a breaded and deep fried chicken strip, I thought about what I wanted more than that....a thin, healthy body. So, instead I made myself a really nice, gorgeous salad, kind of like the one we had on New Year's Day. Mmmmmmmm. Can't say that the chicken strip wouldn't have tasted good, but what's that saying . . . nothing tastes as good as thin feels.
So, the journey now feels real...and I'm glad that I've experienced the first dip. Just means that the education of a lifetime has already begun.
As you can see I have already posted a weight loss at the top of the right hand column. I just couldn't wait to see! And, woohoo, I think it was a successful first week! I'll still get on the scale tomorrow morning and report in, but I'm going to move the official weigh in day to Monday. So after tomorrow, the next weigh in and report will happen on January 18.
See you tomorrow,
