It’s a Brand New Day

I start on the meal replacement portion of my program today. Last week we were waiting for them to come in, and journaling our food. Last night we had our final med check and weigh-in, first class with our instructor, and picked up our meal replacements.

I’ve lost 2.5 pounds already but that’s just an accident of timing – last Wednesday was the day in my monthly cycle when I am the highest weight for the month, so I was bound to lose weight no matter what I did in the intervening week.

Today I put together a super-cute outfit, I painted my nails last night (AND I didn’t mess them up before they dried, which is extremely rare!), I’m even wearing lipstick. I’m working on having other things to celebrate and enjoy in my day than food. So I’m going to plan little treats for myself over the next four months like a facial or a massage, new running shoes, a hike on a favorite trail, bubble baths, things like that which don’t involve food.

Oh and I took a “before” picture last night, which is too depressing right now to post, but which I will surely post once I’ve made some progress. My husband and I plan to take a photo monthly as we progress through the program.

All right. I’ve got my shaker bottle, my MRs, and I’ve cleared out my office of all food (not that there was much to begin with). LET’S DO THIS.

    Good for you! And because of your inspiration, I’ve started tracking again in WW, since I’ve figured out a way to track my morning smoothies. Good luck!

    Good for you for getting back with it! I need to lose about 230lbs and I follow your blog as an example of who I’d like to be. I don’t foresee a time when I won’t need to work to either lose or maintain a loss and your issues and struggle mirror my own. Thank you for writing.
