morning reality: xxx lbs
Valentine's day goal: xxx lbs
On Sunday I weighed xxx. On Thursday I'm xxx. That's 6 lbs. I fully recognize that is WAY too much WAY too fast. I know I've lost some muscle on that, but likely a lot of it was water too. Still, it is a phenomenal feeling to see the number and to be able to visualize the loss happening. Positive mental imagery is key. I am going to plug in the emotional eating hypnosis CD tonight. If I slow down and maintain over the next few days I won't be surprised. Such is the way of the newly blazoned path.
I am feeling better than yesterday. I am learning about eating calorie dense foods to get my calorie intake UP, believe it or not. I haven't even been hitting the 1000 cal mark and I definitely need to be. That came as quite a surprise to me. Along with the fact that I'm not exceeding my sodium levels as I thought I was. Sometimes I do exceed my protein for a day and also exceed my cholesterol in a day, but I can fix the latter by switching to egg whites entirely rather than whole eggs.
As far as I know, I'm going on a date tomorrow night. (Anyone wondering about Harry Potter? No, I didn't think you were.) I am fulfilling my cougar status. He's a young 30s Italian musician education teacher from Brooklyn. He's volunteered to take the train all the way out here (90 minutes). I hope things go well. I know I'll be fine as long as he doesn't act like Vinnie Babarino from Welcome Back Kotter which would send me into a fit of laughter. Actually, he speaks quite eloquently so I'm sure we're going to have some engaging conversation. Who knows what he's expecting, he keeps going on and on about my sexy eyes. At least I've got those working for me!
Oh oh oh....Twilight....yes......fascinating now. I'm 50 pages from the end and I can see that I have to buy the next book right away. Bella's still incredibly annoying but Edward is darling.
