I can't post my weigh-in pic!!! I tried and tried on my home computer this morning but it just wouldn't work. Normally when I click on the picture icon, "My Pictures" comes up and I just scroll down until I see it. Well this morning, it looked totally different. "My Pictures" wasn't even an option. It would only allow me to upload from a URL or upload from Picasa Web Album....WTF????? I couldn't find the picture anywhere so eff it.
I weighed in at 245.8 lbs. this morning! I was 249.6 last Friday, so that's a loss of 3.8 lbs. for this week...AND...get this....a loss of exactly 10 lbs. in the last 2 weeks!!! Here's the bummer though. I still feel fat and miserable in my clothes. Those 10 lbs. hasn't seemed to make any difference which is disappointing. Everything I wear is still binding and irritating and hard to breathe in. Maybe in another 10 lbs. things will fit better.....because I REALLY don't want to break down and go out and buy BIGGER sizes. As soon as I shrunk, I gave away all of my bigger sizes, because...you know...going back up the scale just wasn't an option....PFFFT!!
I've already got Friday and Saturday's dinners with Dwayne planned, just like last weekend. Tonight we're having grilled pizzas again, except we're doing them on the Naan bread tonight instead of the pita bread we used last Friday....so it will be like a thin crust pizza and save me some calories. Dwayne was over last night and I talked him into letting me buy him some turkey pepperoni, instead of the real deal. He begrudgingly agreed. I told him it will taste just as good but I don't think he believes me, lol. I also have some more of that ground italian chicken sausage like I used last week. I'll be buying 2% mozzarella this time though instead of the full-fat (delicious!) mozzarella we used last weekend.
Saturday night we're grilling some steaks he bought on sale a couple of weeks ago and threw in the freezer...either the NY strips or the sirloins...haven't decided yet. I'll meausre a 6 oz. portion on my food scale. We're splitting one baked potato between the 2 of us, and I'll have sauteed mushrooms and onions w/ mine. I'm also buying one of those Lite Caesar Salad kits so I can at least get some romaine lettuce down his gullet. Sheesh.
I have to say that my 10 lb. loss over the last 2 weeks is due mostly to planning ahead. I do so much better and it's not near as hard to stay on track when I have plenty of healthy options on hand. That's not to say I don't still have thoughts about food that are over my calorie limit. I do...almost daily still. But I'm still only focusing on one day at a time. There's always some sort of dialogue going on with my brain..
Fat Tammy: "I want a Philly cheesesteak sub today."
Skinny Tammy: "Yeah? Well that DOES sound good. But let me ask you something first. At what point do you want to strap on a pair of pants to go to work in the morning and not feel like the non-elastic waistband is damaging internal organs?"
Fat Tammy: "Hmm. Well...you have a point. I guess I can wait until tomorrow."
Skinny Tammy: "Good girl. Yes, we'll talk about it again tomorrow."
lol...and we do...day in and day out. But as long as Skinny Tammy keeps winning out then I'm happy.
Hope everyone has a great weekend planned. Dwayne and I are going to visit my sister on Saturday and on Sunday I'm meeting up with Kim to have lunch and then we're going to the Dekalb Farmer's Market. This will be her first time there...I think she's going to love it! :)
