I Almost QuitPosted: January 23, 2012
I almost quit Weight Watchers yesterday morning. When I say Weight Watchers I mean all diets. I was completley ready to throw in the towel, embrace my curves, empty my bank account and head over to Lane Bryant to buy myself a nice Bovine wardrobe and just be done with all of this dieting nonsense.
You see when I got on the scale yesterday a.m., I weighed 217.4. That is more than I weighed when I started “Getting Serious” about dieting 6 months ago. Since Friday, I had been focusing on my baby step goals, had walked the dogs, drank all my water and eaten sensibly. I was so sad…morose even. How could I possibly have gained that much weight when I was doing everything right?
I didn’t quit yesterday for reasons I myself do not understand. I drank lots of water and lots of green tea. I walked the dogs. I took my vitamin. I paid attention to what I ate, paying special attention to keeping my portions small at dinner. I avoided all salt!
I peed constantly. I mean constantly, as in every 15 minutes constantly. When I drove my eldest calf to his LAX practice I had to stop 2X for pit stops. (the practice was just 20 minutes from the stable). I thought he was going to die of embarrassment but I figured the constant stopping was better then me peeing on myself.
This morning I got on the scale and guess what? Back to 212.6 which is where I was at my last weigh-in. Yahoo! I must have eaten something really salty that caused me to retain water…..and all that peeing paid off!
I am feeling motivated once again. I made it to the gym this morning and did my weight work-out and then went walking for an hour and a half. I am a happy, motivated, Bovine and that’s the way, uh huh, uh huh I like it 🙂
