No Fluke

I'm pretty happy today. Today I have come to accept that my weight loss is not some fluke. It's not water weight. It's not something that is going to slip away from me. It's hard work. It's slightly changing what I eat. It's definitely changing the amount I eat... and it's caring. I have moved past the 20lb lost mark and I'm at 21.4lbs lost. I pretty much have no self control and I'm weighing myself almost every day. At some point this will be bad. But I'm past caring about that. Weighing myself every day is more motivation. I fluctuate a pound here... a pound there.. but then there will be a smaller number like today. I'm logging all the smaller numbers and forgetting the larger numbers. The notch up on the chart below was my Puerto Rico trip - I quickly lost it.

I'm losing roughly 2 1/4 pounds a week.. which is more than my 1 pound goal. The best part is - I'm eating. I don't deny myself anything. If I really want it, then I'll have it. But I'll have 2 instead of 4.... or half a cup instead of a cup... or the light version instead of the full fat version. I've eaten pizza, McDonald's (don't care what people say... the breakfast sandwiches are good), french fries, and ice cream. I have smaller portions of them but I still have them. I have strawberries, apples, ORANGES, and all the vegetables I can eat. I'm also drowning myself in water and spend most of the time peeing. But I feel better. :)
