I've been ssing for the most part with a week off here and there. My goal is to get in to a comfortable size 8. I never got below a 10. The past few years I have been a 12. All my 12's pants are now too big. I've been using my elastic belt to hold them up, but I think it is time to retire them. I have also gone down in bra size, which I am very happy about, and my glasses are too big! lol! I only have one pair of size 10 in my closet and my husband told me to go get myself some pants, but my plan is to not be in this size long enough to justify spending the money. I may be in a plateau at the moment. It's too early to judge, but that's ok if I am. This is a process and each stage is important, even the frustrating ones. This is why I am choosing not to weigh. The last time I did I saw a number that I was happy about so I'm leaving that in my mind for now. No need to risk negativity. I want only positives and sometimes I am too tuned in to the numbers. Not weighing this time has been very freeing for me. Other times I have relied in the scale to keep me on track. Each time has been different and it's important to pay attention to what's in your best interest, regardless of the past.
So.. I will continue on. I will be taking a mini break this weekend for Father's Day and plan to make a special dinner for Andy. I'm not concerned about the time and I'm happy with the progress I am seeing. My blood sugars have been great too! It seems each year older I get, I have to work a little harder to keep them in line. My goal has always been to stay off of diabetes meds and I'll do what it takes to make that happen.
Hope you are all have a great day. It's the weekend and that brings it's own challenges. Some of you may be facing obligatory family gatherings for Father's Day. Be strong and mindful. Keep your own goals as a priority.
