I'm definitely hungry this morning. That's the thing -- when you don't eat that much one day, you are probably going to feel it the next day. I drank my shake, ate a few nuts, and am drinking down my water. So far, that is doing it for me.
Does anyone else get cold easier when you are eating fewer calories? I do, sometimes. I am shivering this morning. I think I will drink some hot tea. That always helps with hunger, too.
My "cubie" at work has a bad cold -- sniffing and sneezing and coughing. I am praying I don't catch it. Seems like it would be a good idea to stay home. I certainly don't want it.
Something I am noticing about my body lately -- even though I am getting smaller, I feel "squishier." I need to work out. I meant to do some arm work this morning, but didn't have time. I need to get set on doing that and make time for it. I can do it seated, which I think will keep my back from getting involved.
This is the best day, pain-wise, I have had in weeks. I am encouraged. I am going to do 15 minutes on the recumbent bike in the morning on an easy setting and see how it feels. I have started my arm work and will do more as the evening progresses.
I have had a good day, eating-wise, sticking to my plan. I am motivated. Two things that are motivating me (in addition to the other things): (1) I am less than 20 pounds from 100 pounds lost; and (2) I have 6 bins of clothing in my closet, most of which are size 14W-16W, and some small 18s. Not only do I want to get into the clothes, but I also want the bins cleared out of my closet. I hope to be in a lot of them in the next couple of weeks.
I posted on Facebook the picture from last Saturday night alongside a picture from where I started. I wanted to criticize the new picture, because I am not where I want to be yet, but seeing it up next to the old one put it in a whole new perspective. I have come a long, long way. I am about halfway to where I want to be, but we will see when I get there. 160 pounds is my goal right now. Not so small that it would be super-hard to maintain, but small enough (I am fairly tall) where I will look nice and it should be small enough for my joints, back, etc.
I am totally out of my BP med with the diuretic and have no refills. So my weight may show that this week. I am drinking more water and going to the bathroom a lot, so I hope that helps compensate.
That's it for tonight. Over and out.
