First, this is my lowest ever in years! I'm no longer letting the proximity to 199 get to me, but I have a feeling I will see it before the end of January. Second, it's confirmation that I made the right choice for me concerning Phase 4, and following Dr. H and BFF's suggestions to "shake it up." Increasing my calories for a "treat meal" was, admittedly, a little scary after following 1200 calories religiously since November. Letting go (a little) and relaxing seems to have helped my body let go and relax too resulting in a 2.8 lb loss two days before I should start my TOM. Suck it, hormones.
I downloaded the My Fitness Pal app for the iPhone yesterday, and I love it so far. I've been playing with apps for calorie tracking this week, and I'll be sticking with this one. It's easier to use than the others I've tried. Ironically, it set my daily calories at 1200! But then, when I came in only 28 calories under, it said I was eating too little. Picky, picky.. My username is cdurrell85 if anyone else uses it and would like to send a friend request.
In other news, I received an award from Patrick at Responsibility 199- thank you so much!! I can't (or don't know how to) link things on my phone, so I'll be posting that later tonight! Thank you again, Patrick!!
Oh, and Mr. D has decided to start blogging! He's not planning to do any weight-loss blogging (that I'm aware of), but thought I'd share that with you guys:
And since I'm talking about husband anyway, he was a whole lot of awesome last night. With TOM looming, and me having the serious munchies, he started to bake cookies last night while we were watching BL11 (is anyone else getting annoyed at the minimal airtime of the unknowns?). I MAY have made a face and whined a little about how tempting that was going to be for me, but also said I didn't want to be unfair and ask him who is NOT obese to not have something he wanted just because I'm on a diet. You know what he did? Popped some light popcorn for us to share instead. He does that kind of thing a lot now, so I try not to begrudge him when he wants stuff like TJ's. So yes, Mr. D- I notice and I appreciate it more than you know.
Before it gets too mushy.. I did my second strength day last night, and my butt is sore. That's all. Just didn't want to end on a mushy note ;)
