I'm better than I think!

So remember that meltdown I had a couple days ago? The one where I admitted to eating cheetos and pepsi?  Well... it wasn't as bad as I thought.  I bought a scale at the PX and then this morning, I stepped on it.


131lbs total lost.

Woah.   Seriously?  Cause when I got on the plane to Germany... I was hovering around 199-201.  It would change daily, but it wasn't dropping.

So...  I guess I wasn't doing as bad as I thought and I really just needed to give myself a break.

Life, my weight loss, diet, exercise... it's not always going to go smoothly.  I have to remember that.  This is for  LIFE.  It's going to be a long journey... did you hear that,  a JOURNEY.  Not a sprint.  It's going to have big hills for me to get over... like this move... but, I will  reach the TOP and  I will coast down the other side to victory... just  like I'm doing now.

I bought new workout clothes... size L in Adidas stuff.  I've never been a size L in athletic stuff.... EVER.  It was awesome being able to try on anything I wanted to.  (PS... thanks Tressa for the advice on what kind of stuff to get!)  I can't wait until my running shoes get here. I don't want to have to spend $80 on another pair when I already have a pair.

Speaking of running.  I started.  Well, more like running and walking. But... I'm running more, longer, than I ever have before. Ever. Ever.  Ever!!  It feels good. I can't wait to do it again tomorrow.

So... yeah.  One day at a time.  Motivation, self assurance, and know that I CAN DO THIS!

Great job Betsy, keep up the good work! Try not to be so heard on yourself if you make a few bad choices every now and then.
