I am back at it and I am not going to let me get the best of me. I have always been my worst critique. Yesterday, I was at the grocery store waiting at the fish counter (I was getting some tilapia fillets for lunch and dinner) when I saw the parent of a student. We exchanged "happy new year's" and then she commented on how much weight I had lost and how I am really an inspiration to the students (I teach at an all girl school). Her daughter has been at our school for all 5 years (Quebec High School is from 7-11, we don't have middle school), so this women has seen me at my highest and lowest. I always forget that I was once at 272 and that I have made progress. I am always mad at myself that I have not come farther in the time that has passed, but at the same time I tend not to give myself the credit that I deserve for keeping off most of the weight that I have lost. It is so hard for me to take a weight loss compliment and I get so shy when anyone says anything. All I can say is "thank you", but I really wish sometimes that people would not say anything. Am I crazy?
I am 2/2 for the morning workouts! I have been going to bed earlier and getting up earlier to hit the gym at around 6:15 am. Today I did a 45 minute spin class and then I did some leg presses. Can you believe that I can leg press 270 pounds *brushes shoulders off*.
I am really going to try and stick to eating fish for the next few weeks and stay away from meat. They have bass fillets on sale so I am going to try those tonight with some zucchini on the side.
I am still struggling on the water front. I am drinking more herbal teas (David's Tea chocolate chili chai is the bomb.com).
Let me pray that 2013 will be the year that I FINALLY get under 200 pounds.
Have a great day!
