Well I have to say, I've had a pretty great week!
1. I've lost SIX (yes you saw that right) pounds total this week. I contribute that in part mostly to the decrease in my medication - the Seroquel I was taking was making me gain an incredible amount of fluid. I've also been VERY diligent and using my food journal that Ben bought me and writing everything that I put in my mouth. I've been sticking to my calories too.
2. I had a great week at work. Great week = NO DRAMA...gotta love that.
3. My doctor has further decreased my medication - I'm pretty happy about this. It means that my body is starting to finally recognize what relaxing is all about. This should also help my weight loss even further! I also saw my therapist Veronica and she is really proud of me. I'm proud of me. I've gone from a scared, pathetic (sorry for saying that, but it's true) non-sleeping lump to a strong, proud, beautiful woman and I'm stoked! I was acting quite hard on myself on Friday - and anyone that knows me knows that I am my worst enemy and am hard on myself any chance I can get. I was talking to Veronica about it - how I want to be totally 100% better - with no meds. She told me that I have to live in the moment and stop worrying about how I'm doing - she says I'm doing really well and to stop being so hard on myself. So that will be something that I will work on this week. Stop being so hard on myself.
So basically I'm pushing through - I'm starting to become the strong, confident woman I want to be!
