I Survived!

morning weight: xxx lbs

WOW! Not only did I NOT gain while my mother was here, I LOST 4 lbs more.

I survived! I exceeded my expectations!

If I can survive a week like that, I think I really can do this. I've walked through the most temptations I can imagine. I turned down aisle upon aisle of refined carbs. I resisted offers to eat out at very fattening restaurants, and when I was in a restaurant I kept my order carb-free. I got through the constant comments about what I was eating, and the tiny little moments of guilt I felt for taking care of myself instead of joining my mother in chips and ice cream and loaves of bread. I did not eat my emotions. Granted, I was a bit cranky having to defend myself all the time, but in the end I did what was best for me. Perhaps I can work on the crankiness.

This is a very helpful boost - I need to deal with the other stresses of work and Sena's illness.

Measurements at Week 2:
bicep - 16 inches (loss of 1 inch)
neck - 15 1/2 inches (same)
bust - 50 inches (loss of 2 inches)
waist - 47 inches (loss of 4 inches)
hips - 58 inches (loss of 2 inches)
thigh - 28 inches (loss of 2 inches)

16 days = 11 inches lost

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
