A little disappointed to see 223 today. Yesterday we went to the Renaissance Faire and I was very good and observed my diet all day. After the RenFaire, they wanted to go out to eat. I was just going to eat my snack - goat cheese and figs - and then have my dinner when I got home. But my brother insisted on something healthy (he's such a different guy when there's a woman in his life) and we wound up going to a Vietnamese restuarant, and I thought a pho soup sounded really good so I got one. It was served in a big bowl and I ate only about 20% of it. It was good, and very filling, and I was glad that I finished, because I could have kept eating, but I was very conscientious of the dangers of eating at the restaurant. So I'm wondering how much sodium was in that soup to make me weigh 223 today. I'm not terribly concerned, and still hope to weigh in at 220 by the end of the week! I'm already coming up with some exercise goals to see me through the end of the year. It is about the numbers right now because it's about getting to goal. I've been hovering above goal, tantalizingly, and I'm confident I'm getting closer but I'm so ready to move on to the next phase, whatever that it.
Yesterday, I was wearing a baggy sweatshirt (my favorite from my 285 days) and my 18 jeans (feeling a bit baggy in the butt, since my butt is so flat I guess) and yet there must have been something about my appearance because my family was like "You are just getting so SKINNY!" (Snork!) I wonder if they just don't see me often enough to remember from week to week what I look like now that I've lost weight. A photograph was taken of me last night that did NOT help me feel the least bit slender. Maybe I'll post it for you.
