I have made it two weeks, I dare say I am enjoying it. Okay not the way I enjoy a big thing of ice cream but I am enjoying the way I feel. I also have come to the conclusion I need to throw my scale away, I was given a scale twp years ago, I went 10 years without one and was quite happy. I find the scale to be far more of an obsession and really puts me in a shitty mood. For example I have lost another 1 in my hips and in the stomach area, but the scale says I weigh 177 pounds. My clothes fit better and I feel so much better but my weight just lingers or goes up. I know muscle weighs more than fat but it doesn’t make me feel any better. There you have it, health isn’t a number on a scale. I started to lose weight, however I didn’t really want to lose weight I wanted to lose inches and that I have done. The tone is coming back in my arms and abs. My balance on one foot has returned to yoga form, my body didn’t forget it just got lazy. I got lazy and I admit that, I work full time, am a mom and a student, I also am partial to sleep. I also know if I don’t watch myself with the exercise I am one blood test away from Synthroid, I would much rather have Jillian Michaels kick my ass on a daily basis, then to go through the hell that is thyroid medicine regulation. I mean mood swings, hair loss. weight gain, acne, UTIs, headaches, fogginess, always tired, it isn’t fun and I’m not a fun person to be around. Being a concierge I am expected to always be happy and bubbly, it is hard to be a bubbly when your head is throbbing. I was told quite sometime ago by my endocrinologist to throw my scale away and I am once again going to listen to that advise and throw my scale away because it is depressing as hell.
On a much more positive note the Princess and I had a girls day. We went shopping and went to lunch, much needed one on one time and we have made a pack to do it once a month.
We did go to the Goodwill Store today, I rewarded myself with some new shirts that I brought home and dyed. I have this new purple satin shirt that is gorgeous. Really should have taken before and after of that one because it turned out amazing. The grey shirt I dyed wasn’t terrible the sleeves didn’t evenly dye but that really won’t matter because I wear jackets. I have one more I plan on dying Aquamarine but that will have to wait for another day.
Until tomorrow bye!
