I'm back to eating on plan and even after my birthday binge I managed to pull a 2.6 lbs loss (down one more pound than my gain last week.) BOOYA!!
Have you heard of Flat Stanley? Well our meeting group is starting our own version with a 3 month food tracker. The meeting participants will nominate one meeting patron to take home the tracker and fill it out according to their own diet (food and activity choices), bring it back to the meeting the next week to have it reviewed by the group, and then mail it out and pass it on to another meeting group. Well guess who was nominated to be the first? ME!! In fact, when our meeting leader announced this, one member pointed to me and said "I WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE LADY WHO HAS LOST 130 PLUS POUNDS EATS!" LOL
So for the next 7 days, I will eat every morsel knowing that I will be held accountable for my actions next Saturday. At least 20 people in my meeting alone will read over what I've eaten and the activity I've done. Will they be judging me? Yes, probably! I know a lot of people are amazed with what I have accomplished and seem to think that I've been doing something rediculously extreme to lose the weight. My hope is that this will be an opportunity for those people to see that all I've done is keep trying! I also hope that as the tracker gets sent around to the different meetings in different places that people will be able to gain ideas and possibilities for their own journey from me.
I am a bit stressed over it. Mostly because tomorrow, hubby and I's 24 hour birthday camping celebration begins- therefore what I track will not be a "regular" week for me. I will put a note into the tracker explaining this and my goal is to show that everything in moderation will still lead to a weight loss. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will work. :-/ I will certainly be making SURE to make those activity points to balance out my transgressions.LOL I also understand that with tomorrow being Easter, probably everyone will be indulging a bit more than usual, which makes me feel less pressure...
CAMPING!!! Going to be FUN!! Happy Easter everyone!
