I'm waiting for my body to give up the fat. I know it's going to take a while, but I'm doing everything right.
I'm waiting to see my progress on the scale. Soon, I'll be able to say "70 POUNDS LOST" instead of "almost 70!" That's going to feel amazing, I know it!
I'm waiting for the next time I have to eat. I'm trying to keep my metabolism running like a hot fire that burns fat from the inside out. Eating small meals every 4 hours. I'm kinda sick of eating.
I'm waiting for the next time I have to pee. Good gravy, as if my bladder wasn't small enough, now I'm trying to drink half my weight in ounces. Trying to take it slow, so my body has a chance to absorb it.
Losing weight is a whole bunch of "hurry up and wait." They don't tell you that part in classes, programs, and diet books. They guide you through the steps, but don't tell you what to do inbetween the steps. So I suppose I could offer a few suggestions of:
"What to do while Weighting."
1. Learn how to use the twitter.
Last night, I forced myself to spend 3 hours on twitter and try to master it. I think I have the hang of it now. I also think I will never have to force myself on the twitter again. It may have replaced cake in my life. Come find me!
2. Check out other blogs.
I've been reading a ton of them lately, trying to network and reach out. I've added quite a few to my blog roll, if you need suggestions. If you aren't on there, link it to me in the comments, and I'll getcha added. (And am I on YOURS? lol)
3. Give yourself a breast exam.
It's important to do. It could save your life. Personally, I have Matt check me out once a week. He pays way more attention to them than I do anyway. Boys are silly.
4. Go to my friend Mrs. FatAss's blog, donate $10 bucks and CHANGE A LITTLE GIRL'S LIFE.
5. Think about something besides food.
Yeah, I have a hard time with this one too. This morning I was watching Cupcake Wars on my DVR and almost drove to the store to get cake. I realized what was happening and turned it off. I also removed it from the DVR que. I am learning to once again recognize my "triggers" and eliminate them.
So that should keep you busy enough for now.
Oh! And I totally forgot that I have a giveaway to do! I'll save it for tomorrow, when hopefully we can have a "70 pound celebration" and make it all festive and stuff. That will make it feel more like a party.
Till then, I'll be here, making good choices and weighting...
