All told it was a pretty good week, even if it had its ups and downs. Frankly, I’ve been feeling a bit emo, and to watch what I write so that I don’t include little tidbits like “if anyone even cares” or “yeah, whatever, I don’t care”. There’s the random crying in the morning as I shower for no good reason thing which tends to throw me a bit off. And that whole feeling like the little fat kid picked last in school because no one likes them. Yeah, all brought to you by *that* point in my cycle. Lovely.
I hate that helpless, slave to my emotions feeling. And I’m a really, really, really, really, really, really emotional person. Bet you can guess my eating trigger?? Huh?
I’m starting to get back into the groove of singing again, which, I’ll tell you, took several weeks to set back in. Practicing every day is something I had to work back up to, but it takes much the same discipline as working out. Go figure. I have an audition on Saturday, a concert on Sunday, and audition paperwork and phone calls to make over the next five days. Ah, real life, you’ve come back to bite me in the ass.
Maybe I’ll be too busy to feel emo soon, huh?
Anyhow, on to the weigh-in:
This Week’s Stats
Starting Weight: 291.6
Previous Weight: 255.0 lbs
Current Weight: 251.2 lbs
Difference: -3.8 lbs
Total Weight Removed: -40.4 lbs!!!!!!!
Oh, excuse me, I can’t hear you over the sound of my awesomeness. What was that? Oh, yeah, I’ve removed forty freaking pounds. My happy dance, let me show it you.
If that isn’t cool enough, it also means that the hubby and I are going to go see Wicked as my forty pound Goal Reward!!!
And as the cherry on top, I get to say good-bye to the Second Twenty Pounds and hello to the Third Twenty Pounds. That’s right, I’m now on my way to losing 60 lbs. Wow.
Finally, I challenged myself to get back into the groove of working out, and – wouldn’t you know it – I found my mojo! It was there waiting for me all along, I just needed to get back to basics.
