6 pounds. The damage from the month of December was SIX POUNDS. I just wanted to type it clearly so I could make sure I understood the importance of that number. Those six pounds have made me sluggish, sore, uncomfortable in my clothes, unhappy, and I lost my fifty pound title. Its amazing how much better my body and mind feel when I'm being healthy and smart about my choices.
I'm okay. I am glad I got to see the number on the scale last night. It was a good reminder to quit whining, put my head up, and deal with what I've done. I really appreciate everyone's support yesterday and today. I know it help me tremendously. My calories were at 1,800 yesterday. Higher than target, but considering my body has been used to 3,000 or more a day, I was okay with that number. It was a number to help me move back into the goal range of 1,600 or so.
I've drank so much liquid the last two days I feel like I'm ready to float away. All things combined, I know I can do this. The body rebounds well. It is an amazing organism. Even when I don't treat it right, it still comes back for me...
In other news, I heard a newscast this morning about a local radio crew who tried to see who long they could go without complaining about anything....one lady went 21 days! That's amazing. I bet I cannot go a whole day, which is pathetic, and why I'm going to make a conscious effort to twist negatives into positives and not complain at all the rest of this year. I know two days doesn't seem like much, but baby steps here...Hope you all have a complaint free day too!
