May 10, 2010


I admit it. I am officially frustrated.

Perturbed, actually.

I am 4 pounds from my goal weight.  The weight I said was the ideal weight for me and would make my life complete.

I had visions of hitting my goal, putting on a frilly dress and bonnet and then singing "The Sound of Music" on top of a mountain. Then I would hug my kids and we would skip through the flower covered meadow.  I would see my skinny shadow, smile and head to the local burger joint for a celebratory fatty, greasy meal.

I was supposed to hit my goal on April 26.

It is now May 10. 

I am not there yet.

I am angry.
Perturbed.  {my word for the week}

And many other things I wont share out of fear of losing followers.  My ego doesn't need that right now.


I am trying to appreciate my success so far.  The fact that I am down 3-4 sizes.  The fact that I can fit into fancy dresses I wore when I was in college.  The fact that I apparently have really skinny ankles and wrists.

And the fact that I am 27 pounds lighter than I was at Christmas.
And have lost 35 inches....even if most of it came from my boobs.

But, the most important thing I am trying to remember is that I am healthy.  I no longer drink pop,  eat processed food and red meat.

Except for my greasy burger when I hit my goal weight.

The last few pounds are the hardest. Eat extra fibre this week. It might help. ;)

Keep looking forward so you won't be held back. You can do it.

Hey there! The dancing on the hill to the sound of music is how I imagined I'd feel when I hit my goal...still hasn't happened, but we must persevere!! Keep up the good work and the great attitude. You can do it!!

Fiber will help with the bloating and constipation (and maybe a couple of pounds). And sometimes, when you eat a meal you shouldn't (high in calories, fat, etc.) it tricks your body into kicking the metabolism in gear. Don't worry about being past your goal date - you are this close - you can do it!

They say those last few pounds are always the hardest. Just focus on the positive and all that you've gained. And I really need to work at this more.

You've made huge strides in a short time, don't beat yourself up too much if you're struggling with the last few. Sadly, I'm struggling with the last few DOZEN. Sigh. I'd probably get a lot further if I had your willpower to give up soda. Kudos!

Good luck, you can do it!!

Hey, we'd like to feature you next Monday at BlogTrotting! Can you have a tour post ready?

Wow. Good for you!!! I have heard that those last few pounds are the hardest. I have read that hot water with a squeeze of lemon in the morning helps with bloating. I had some this morning cuz I have noticed that I am super bloated LOL since I have started my hardcore belly workout :)
