Weight loss since last weigh in: 4.3 pounds
Total weight loss: 35 pounds
I skipped last week's weighing in and was thinking that I would do a lot worse than I did. I had a gain of two pounds my last weigh in and "got even" by eating junk food for a week straight. I felt pretty bad and remembered why I started eating better.
My boyfriend lives about 1300 miles away, so I went to see him. He and I are in the beginning stages of the relationship, but we are still having fun. I have to make better food choices if, or when, I see him again.
I haven't been in a relationship in ages. It was my choice. When men would start to flirt, I would not be interested. If a man was brave enough to ask me out, I would decline. I think I did that to escape the hurt that I have felt every time a relationship ends. I get stressed and either overeat or don't eat at all.
Back to the weight loss, I figured a few things out about me. I will cave when it comes to making good food choices when people are visiting me or I am visiting them. How do you overcome this? I am a social eater. That is what almost every special occasion involves. I could use some pointers.
I'll give myself some pats on the back. I'm still running and pushing myself further each week. I still have yet to run a mile straight, but as the pounds come off, I know it will become easier. I am also tickled due to being thinner than I was back in 2008! Good things continue to happen and now I need to get back on the wagon and make even better choices.
