I have GOOD news! I made my very first goal this week! Here’s the proof:
Excuse my Olay face, I so have my Grandma’s eyebrows!
I weighed myself early this week and actually met my goal around Thursday. Then on Friday I took my children for a long 2+ hour drive into Wisconsin and I pretty much had to eat the entire drive. I tried to make good choices: tangerines, bitter carrots, a turkey, goat cheese and spinach wrap on a sprouted grain tortilla. The not so good choice was the Kettle Corn. My weight was back up yesterday but I was feeling very bloated, so I was hoping after a good night’s sleep and gallon of water I would get back down and sure enough I did! Yay! I didn’t have any witnesses the first time I weighed myself so I was so thankful I could get the same reading on Sunday morning.
For my reward I bought this:
It’s a handmade basket with a wood bottom. I love it so much! It’s so great to carry all my multiple reading materials and list making paraphernalia! Here’s another view. It even smells good!
So now I have to come up with another goal…I think my next goal should be my actual weight and my driver’s license weight being in agreement with each other. That would be 180 pounds. (yeah, it’s been a lie for pretty much a decade…sigh) Is 18 pounds too long of time to wait for a reward? Maybe a intermediate goal should be 190. Okay, my goal is to get to 190 by Christmas. That should be doable.
We still haven’t replaced our treadmill yet, but are hoping to find a great deal as Black Friday gets closer.
I’m making handmade Salmon Patties for lunch today, I’ll share the recipe soon!
P.S. I have to mention something here…it’s really significant that I made this goal this week, because Mr. Taffy was gone hunting for 3 days . In the past I would have spent a lot time eating while he was away (lonely trigger). God is so GRACIOUS!
