Valentines Day 2010 - Picnic @ the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens
I've become obsessed with the bathroom scale and this is NOT good. Not good for me or for anyone else. Stepping on the scale a zillion times in a space of a few minutes is not going to change the number. I promise you - I can attest to this fact. Nor believing that you have magically grown wings to lift you a bit - is not going to happen. How do I know this? Because no matter how much I begged those wings to appear they did not!!
Not to long ago - a couple of weeks ago I did some something miraculous and lost 2 kg's (4.4 lbs if my calculations are correct) in one week. There I was sky high - hey, do this every week and before I know it - poof - the weight will be gone. Well, my body had other ideas - truly it did. A slight gain followed, then teeny weeny losses and I just about lost it when I knew I had put my heart and soul into sticking to the plan and exercising to only have lost a solid *&%$# 200 grams. My Spirit was broken....why, why, why??? That was it I was going to give up 'the habit' and throw that horrid piece of equipment in the bin - I was done with it. BUT - I couldn't do it. I'm way to attached to my bathroom scale, the gym scale and any other scale I can step my sticky paws onto. Come Sunday - I'm feeling lighter. Do I brave it? I stare at the scale - wondering why the hell I'm doing this to myself and there it is : I'd finally managed to drop below 90 kg's (198.41 pounds). There is no accounting for what the body wants to do and WHEN it wants to do it - it just didn't want to do it on Weigh-IN DAY!!
From this week I've decided to cut out all carbs after 5pm (except on the day before a cycle race day). I am making more of an effort to be in bed by 20:30 - any later and I seem to fade quick the next day and it seems to have a snow ball effect.
This is a huge mile stone for me as I have not been under 90 kg's in the past 10 years. I hope not to see the 90's at all ever again.
The next goal 85 kg's - I can do this!!
