I have decided to get serious about dropping 3-4 pounds over the next two weeks.
That sounds absurd, but I drop weight fairly quickly if I step back into a hardcore induction. I have watched my weight slide up to 119-120 over the past two months of eating and drinking as I wish, which is still not far beyond, but I do have cocktails (always hold the added sugar) and the occasional pizza or dessert. I know much of it is extra water from all those restaurant meals, so it will come off fast.
Yes, I am only one pound over my upper limit now, but I want to get back down to 115 so that when I float up, I float up to 118, not up to 120 or higher.
So, I am giving up liquor, watching my sodium, and concentrating on eating at home. I am trying to get motivated to exercise, which joining BFD’s workout thing this week should kick-start. I still have foot pain, so I am not back on the trail, but there is a lot I can do.
I will admit that I just saw a pic of myself with K and with W’s on/off and I was the thinnest in the picture. I noticed when K and I tried on the same exact dresses that I was much thinner than she. The difficulty is that they’re both shorter than I and are considered very petite girls. But, I am not happy at 119-120. I need to shift down just a little and begin to get into shape.
I had delayed the diet when I freaked out and new the disordered thinking was back in play. Now, I feel in control of it, so the diet can begin again.
