TheKarenS's Journal, 03 May 2011


I thought for sure i would show a gain of a couple pounds - i did on the scales at work. And i dont think for 1 minute that i won't see 150's again. But it sure was a pleasant surprise to see the numbers on the scale this morning!

I went to the doctor yesterday for muscle spasms in my back. Of course, I showed a significant weight loss since my last visit (47lbs - then i gained more, then went on the diet). Even though he's a FB friend and has been seeing all my diet photo updates, he was still surprised and kept saying how proud he is of me. :-) I asked him how much more I needed to lose - 15-20 lbs? (cuz i still have 155 in my head). He said I'm a good healthy size now, and didn't need to lose any more weight, but could focus on toning up if i want to. :-) This is the same Dr that gently scolded me the last time I was there that the scales were going in the wrong direction. What an odd feeling to have a medical professional tell me I don't need to lose more weight!

As I told him, I'm using the scale as a general guide. My main goal is to be healthy and fit. I still have a lot of fat (belly fat - the worst kind) to lose, but if i lose that and gain muscle and the numbers dont really change, then I'm ok with that. And as he pointed out, i would lose inches, if not weight.

All in all, things feel alright. I had a little out of control eating (hot fresh pizza that i havent seen in months!) but it was ok. Upcoming is Cinco de Mayo, and there's a wonderful new restaurant in town. I'm going to eat my fiber snack first and get a 'to go' box and put half in immediatelty. I think it will be ok.

And I think I'm gonna win the contest. Weigh-in is May 18th.
