Workin' It!!!

Since I came clean with my confession this week, I didn't want to leave everyone hanging.
I went to my meeting today.
I decided to go to one mid-day, because I've been before, and it's always nice to see a nice smiling face when you have to shed all dignity, step on a scale, and weigh yourself.
This week I was focused. Seriously focused. I journaled. I exercised. I did everything I needed to do. And, I felt an amazing amount of control coming back into my life.
I know - it's weird. But it's totally true.
I turned down ice cream and junk food. And I got into the exercise. I bought shiny new running shoes, and I ran my butt off.
And, it wasn't bad. In fact, I started to enjoy it.
I didn't realize how little water I've been drinking throughout the day. Nor did I realize just how much crap I've really been eating.
Journaling every day made me watch what went in my mouth.
And ... the results?!?!
I lost 4 pounds!!! Seriously. Four pounds in one week.
I know that this is the thing with first weeks. When you have slacked off for awhile and then suddenly get back to it, the first week tends to be extra good.
But still!!!!
Plus, this puts me much closer to the goal I have set for myself.
I think I'm going to go get myself some lovely new lululemon pants to celebrate!!!
And THANK YOU to everyone who commented and made me realize that this is not something to be ashamed of. I held my head up a little bit higher this week.

Good for you laural. Stick with it!
I didn't comment on your confession post but I have to agree you should be proud that you have a support network to help you reach your goals.
