Well you are right. So I was hemming and hawing on my decision to go scale-less for the month of July...fitting and appropriate yes...as it is the month of of Independence here in the great states of the United.
Anways, essentially I was talking myself out of it but because so many of you were like:
"OOOH, Amy if any can do it. You can"
"If you do I will do it"
"Amy, you are a beautiful moon goddess...go for it". (I made that one up)
I will do it. I think the only way to bring peace into my mind during this non-number focused month ahead is to really commit to being the best bandster I can be. Working out is a given, but the food is not. So I will have to choose a healthier diet with more consistency.
A couple of scary pause points if you will.
#1. We are going to my parents boat for the Fourth. I had planned on drinking and participating in nonsense all weekend, but we have to limit my drinking now. EMPTY calories. That's okay. I run am actually more fun to others when I am sober, as Drunk Amy is sometimes moody and needs even more attention than normal...if you can imagine.
#2. I have to see Dr. Friedman next week for a scheduled visit. Which technically means there will be a scale involved, but it's not my scale...so it doesnt count. I don't know whose bright idea it was to schedule a damn appointment right after a holiday. I was probably in some sort of love haze after seeing Dr. Friedman so I can imagine I just replied "Sure...schedule me anytime...sure..."
#3. My weight is at an all time high (since reaching goal). It is 175.4. ShhhNIKES! I don't know how or why...but mama no likey.
What is funny though is there is a noticeable difference (to me and Heather anyways) in my body. I was looking at a picture of me when I met goal in my bikini, and one taken recently. I am the same weight, but you can see a slight difference. More tone, less skin. I will see if I can take a picture tonight and do a side-by-side. People keep saying "you keep getting skinnier"...and I tell them..."actually I haven't lost anymore in about 6 months...its just shifting! I hope that is true.
It's Tuesday people! Let's do this!
