Day # 3 of serious re -commitment to 22 POINTS a day.
The hunger pains throb in my belly and I am now aware of how badly I had been cheating for the last few weeks. Again, I got cocky and didn't do my job of trying hard enough. Now I feel like a drug addict detoxing off of some chemical madness. I have sweats, I'm irritable, lethargic and all over cranky. Wowsa. It don't feel pretty. I *still* went to the gym and lifted some weights and did 15 minutes on the elliptical despite feeling brutal.
In other news, I have another bag of clothing to get rid of. "Fat clothes," if you will. I am giving this large bag of clothing to my place of employment, to our Interview Outfitters program. By donating my nice fat clothes, I am helping someone get some pieces worthy of an interview or even just some free clothing. Last time I lost weight (2005-2006) I kept all of my fat clothes. Then I was able to wear them again. And promptly grew out of them into a size 14 when I gained it all back. I think I was secretly holding on to these clothes in case I got fat again. No more. I won't allow it. I REFUSE to increase a pants size if I have to go out and buy new ones. Especially if I'm going to be unemployed come September, when internship and full time grad school classes will rule my life. I am also putting myself on a $50 a week food budget. No more than that EVER.
Next Monday, July 7th will be weigh in day and every Monday thereafter. This will ensure behaving during the weekend, as I was very successful at Monday weigh ins last year.
