I finally had to change the shirt I wear in my progress pictures. It simply got to be too large, and it didn’t hang correctly on me and looked sloppy. So I decided to use this one instead, which fits much, much better. The funny thing is though, now these shorts are getting a little loose in the waist!
I think what helped this week’s loss was returning to work. I walked a lot more than I had been, butt-numbing meetings notwithstanding. Thus, I burned more calories than I had been before just being here at home being lightly active. I also increased my number of calories to try and get my calorie intake closer to 800 calories. I am finding this difficult because of the balance between eating and drinking that I’m trying to strike. I will eventually figure it out so that I can get in the calories my doctor wants me to (800-1000) on a daily basis. I am finding though that even when I am home, this is tough because I sometimes forget to eat. I’m just not hungry. And sometimes I get so busy that I lose track of time and forget to use the clock as my cue to eat too, so by the time I look at the clock, it’s later than I anticipated.
I’ll have to work on it this week because now there will be students to contend with and no real time for breaks. If I expect to see good things next Sunday, I have to find a way to make this work for me.
I have had a few incredible realizations this weekend. It seems that every week now when I step on the scale, I do not believe what I see.
