I remember last year's physical. I wanted so badly to be below 200 by the time of the appointment. This year, I just wanted more of a gap between the two numbers. But wasn't meant to be. I stepped on the scale at the office and it read 195. Ugh.
BUT, the good news is that in the last week and a half I have been steadily losing again. That doesn't mean that I'm ready to break out the scale full time again. Back into hiding it will go. I have not obsessed at all about it and it has not affected my mood, so right there, that tells me that I was relying way to much on it. The bottom line is that I'm feeling better, my clothes are fitting better and I'm not obsessing over it. I think I've found a happy place with my eating. I'm aiming for 1500 every day weather I exercise or not and really taking a hard look at everything I put in my mouth has helped too. And knocking my portions into smaller sizes. I think I was way off before when calculating portion sizes into My Fitness Pal.
Other than that, the physical came out just fine. I'll go back and do my bloodwork next week for it all but everything else seemed to be in range! Boy it sure would be nice to be at or near goal by next years physical!
Hubby had to work some unexpected overtime this past week so he wasn't able to go with me to The Walking Dead Escape . Fortunately, my friend, John was able to go with me! We had a lot of fun spectating! I think the course was about a mile long total from what we could see Here's some pics from it. We had a great time!
