Arrrrghhhhhhh I was at 150.6 this morning. Starting back in on carefully diminished calorie intake -- I'm at 800 for today. I have a dinner salad planned for tonight, with sesame ginger marinated chicken, mandarin oranges, some of our leftover wonton strips, romaine lettuce, a bit of couscous and some homemade sesame oil and rice vinegar dressing. I'll calculate what that is in a bit, when I'm done with my studying. It is confirmed that I will graduate this spring; other than wanting to lose 30 pounds by July (though i guess now 35 with this latest weigh-in), I will be wanting to look spry and thin when I've got people coming to see me walk. I mean, theoretically someone besides my husband and kids will want to see me walk. God knows nobody three years ago would have imagined that I would have completed an AA degree, much less been accepted into a university.
We're going to go buy an elliptical tonight. A friend of mine ate 1200 calories a day and worked out 4 hours a day and lost 30 pounds in 4 months, so I think if I eat 1200 calories a day and work out an hour a day that should still enable me to get to my goal by July. I'm so tired of hating myself when I look in the mirror.
Oh yeah, ETA that I think Thursdays will be the official weigh-in days now so I don't let the daily ups and downs dishearten me like I did before. SO --
