I'm off in about 10 minutes for Massachusetts. It'll take us bout 5 hours - which means a definite pit stop along the way (3 female bladders and a 3 year old -c'mon!) but I've got my salad dressing packed!
I weighed in this morning at 190! That's 5 pounds gone in one week! I know that most of it is probably water weight but it's good to see the numbers heading south for a change. It gives me incentive.
I'm shooting for 5 pound increments. Five seems more do-able than say 50.... (!) So I'm breaking it into little chunks. I've met my first goal. Woohoo! Next one is 185. I can do that. It'll take longer than a week this time...but I can do it. I've read that it's a lot less daunting to break your losses up that way. You see mini-milestones that keep the momentum going, rather than looking way down the road at that number on the scale that seems damn near impossible some days. Each 5 pound loss will bring me closer.
I hope all of you are hanging in there! I'll be off line for a few days (daughter doesn't have a computer at home) Can you believe that? I can't even fathom not having this little life=line to the information highway at my fingertips each day. Those few days without it nearly did me in!
Well...I really have to run! We want to get as much driving as we can in before the snow flies.
Ciao and happy weekend! See you all Sunday night :-)
