I hope you are all looking forward to celebrating the 4th of July today with family and friends. I think we are keeping things quiet today and getting a few chores checked off the list (Deck Staining!! Woohoo!!), then ending the day cooking out with neighbors and listening to and watching random fireworks displays. We can actually see several displays from our bedroom windows, and since Mishka is so completely petrified of the noise from the fireworks, we often end up watching the displays from bed with the dogs.
As my week gets closer to Fridays Weigh-In, I have feelings of anxiety and panic about the scale.
The scale at home has really been all over the place this week, just like last week!! It’s never been so up and down on a daily basis like this, so I feel a little lost.
I am going to…..”Keep On Truckin”…….
……and try to only have positive energy flowing!
I remember back in February, when I sat down with my “coach” for the first time. She encouraged me to set a timeline to reach my goal weight and to make a chart showing my weight loss as I move towards my goal. I admitted to her that I was a bit nervous about making a timeline and I was worried that my body would fight me and not go below 160 pounds. I have weighed in the 160’s and the 170’s through most of my adult life, but never in the 150’s. I feel like this is a test to see just what I can handle or if I am going to cave!!!
