So I been really lax lately about everything including my band =/ I've always been a procrastinator but had an awakening moment and was like " If you went through all of this trouble to change your life for the better, why are you not using this tool to the best of your ability?" I went on vacation in January and wasn't tracking 100% during driving times and was snacking continuously most of the time. Because of this I chose not to have a fill because I wasn't really sure if I needed one or not. I got back into life and forgot to make an appointment and then BAM they were full until April so here we are waiting... and waiting... and instead of seeing this as an opportunity to give my all I've been procrastinating .....
I don't have enough structure in my life so my goal today is to set up everyday this week and schedule everything time accordingly. As I mentioned I'm pretty lax about everything all the time and I know that is part of what contributed to my lifestyle before my band. I'm very outgoing but usually it's last minute spur of the moment- go with flow everyday living and I still want to be like that but I think that instituting more structure and balance into my life will help me be much more successful in this journey I have started.
I'm currently at the weight of 319.6 which is a total weight loss of ** side note I went looking for my original weight because I couldn't remember the decimal number ..lol and I found my measurement tracker I had created back in September. I thought it would be fun to take my measurements now to see how many inches I had lost as a little motivation booster and OMG I didn't realize I had lost so many inches already!!! It really is true.. don't always count on the scale number also look at your inches because our bodies do amazing things and you can find changes in places you didn't expect/ notice before =D
