On Monday I completed 16 weeks of being on the Weight Watchers program. I weighed in at 164.4 pounds. I was 0.2 pounds away from hitting the 40 lb mark and only 1 pound away from having lost TWENTY PERCENT of my body weight since starting WW. If we were to calculate using my peak weight from this last fall of 215, I have already lost 23% of my body weight.
The past few days have been a roller coaster for me, having gone through a break-up. Ending a relationship with someone is never easy and never feels good, especially if you have developed an attachment, but life goes on and mine will be great. Tonight I spoke to one of my dearest friends for quite a long time. He is me, only a few years older with a penis and all the accoutrement's. He was able to bring some clarity to my mind and shake me back to my center. So here I am... I am back and grounded as ever.
I deleted a couple of unescessary posts from the last few days that were filled with emotional turmoil. It's not that I am ashamed of it because everybody goes through stuff and responds differently, but my initial responses are always more exaggerated compared to how I feel when my mind has had a day or two to adapt to change. To those of you who may have read those, I am doing ok, and I regret that you saw that side of me because it's not an accurate depiction of me as a whole.
Goals for this next week:
exercise, exercise, exercise! Now that I am not getting any sex, I will have to kick up my activity level quite a bit. LOL. No, but really... No matter what happens in my life I need to keep routine and stay active. Exercise will be a great way to help kick the pain and stress of a break-up while keeping me on track with my health goals.
Hit the 40lb and 20% mark by Monday, May 1st. -No problem.
