Last week I set a two level goal for myself, I would be thrilled to not have wine until this coming weekend, or happy with myself for making it to this past Friday. I made it to Friday and it was a struggle, but I did it! I turned down at least two invitations for meals and wine out and they were each difficult. Thursday night I was beside myself with cravings for a patio dinner in the sun of salad and Pinot Gris. However, I persevered and I felt great about it. That is until I got on the scale this morning. WTF?!! I have put on another two pounds! I'm freaking out! I actually cried and considered canceling my trip to Hawaii.
After I pulled myself together I realized I only have one choice and that is to keep trying. I will drink a ton of water and see if the bull shit I'm selling myself about water weight is at all true. I have logged breakfast and I'm going to plan some extra exercise. I ordered a swim suit online that arrives Wednesday so I need to get a grip. I also need to talk to my husband about the lead up to weight loss surgery. There's been a lot of talk about how it will be good for both of us, which is true, but I will still have to diet and exercise to lose my weight and I need to stop this dream talk.
My goals for this week are simple; exercise, eat light, avoid salt and wine.
