@tanyachap great job! That is great to only be a few lbs up. Maybe it will be smooth sailing now.
The scale was better today. 132.4 which is now about 5lbs down from right after xmas and 3 weeks ago. It's about 1.5lbs/week which if I can maintain then I will be happy. I am used to gaining a bunch back every weekend and constant setbacks so I can't really celebrate 1.5/week unless I know it will stick! I am hoping the key to that is stopping the low carb thing and focusing more on calories. I feel like maybe I am losing at a slower pace than I used to but at least I wont keep gaining it back? IDK. I still can't believe I am stuck in the 130s AGAIN and that my bday is right around the corner and I am so far from where I wanted to be by then it isn't even funny.
Tonight should be hard too because we have to go to my uncle's house and he has a lot of appetizers and stuff around. Just trying to hang in there today. Not in a great mood and even though I am happy to see the scale moved I am astounded that I am dealing with the 130s yet again.
Also, I ordered a pair of corduroys from the Gap and they were too big. I was not sure of their sizing as it was like 30, 28, etc. I got a 30 and it was huge so I called to exchange it and they didn't have a 29 only a 28. She said the equivalent sizes were 10 for a 30, 8 for 29 and 6 for a 28 but they ran big. So I got the 28s because that was all they had and they were a great price and I figured if they didn't fit it would motivate me more lol. So I got them yesterday and they fit but not very comfortably. If I lose about 5 they will probably fit well so I am hoping that will be SOON like before the summer lol! I took measurements today and they were about the same. My boobs actually went UP although I think I am ovulating soon so that might make sense. My hips went down .75 inches and my stomach/waist was the same. Was hoping for a bit more progress with all the effort I have been putting in lately but I guess I am just being impatient because it IS happening just not at the rate I was hoping.....
