I have been feeling quite disillusioned by my weight loss journey lately. I decided to take a step back for a couple of weeks. I had a visit with my mom for a few days and then went to work as a summer camp nurse for a week. I did not step on a scale. I did not count calories. I only ran once. I listened to my body and ate when I was hungry and stopped when full. (easy to do at camp, where I was not doing the cooking or washing-up) The only exercise I got at camp was walking around the camp grounds. (Oh, there were a few sprints to emergencies as well) My mother-in-law came one day to pick up the kids for their visit with her. She told me she had noticed I was losing weight, that my face looked thinner. I did notice that my jeans were a bit looser. I blamed it on wearing them a few times without washing them since I was at camp.
I got home today and stepped on the scale out of curiosity. It said 155.8. I managed to drop two pounds in 10 days without trying. I can zip up a dress that has been taunting me in my closet now!
Previous weight: 158
Current weight: 155.8
Starting weight 161.0
Total loss: 5.2
My kids are gone for a couple of weeks now so I am looking forward to stretching my cooking wings while they are gone. Nothing with 'n cheeze or nugget in the recipe name for a while!!!
