I had my Endo Appointment this past Thursday. I was actually really excited to see her because I thought I had made some great progress and I guess I wanted to show off and hear all those nice compliments.
But who was I kidding? My endo, I should have known, she's never really excited, at least, she won't show it. She was impressed with the weight loss and she also told me my A1C was very good, but reading her expression on her face, it looked like she could have said: "This apple tastes really good." Common, that's not really what I wanted to hear. But then again, I might read way too much into it. So I decided to be happy for myself because after all, I knew personally how hard I had worked on this to get it where I am today. And after realizing that, it totally changed my outcome of the day.
I lost a little bit of lbs. at Weight Watchers that same morning, only 0.4lbs, not a lot... but still, it's going down. So I got to embrace that!
I have a B-I-G challenge coming up... I have a conference in CA to go to. It is from Wednesday until Sunday.... Ouch!
So guess what I will be doing Tuesday afternoon? I will be pre-packaging all my snacks that I want to take with me. I'll have a little fridge in the hotel room so I can easily store all my smoothies, yogurts, string cheese, carrots, etc... That way, I can eat little snacks throughout the day. It has worked before at another conference, so I'm going to do it again. I try to eat every 2-3 hours, that way, I can keep my metabolism going and I won't be starving when it is time to order a meal. The most important thing is that I have time to prepare for this so IT'S GONNA WORK, IT HAS TO!
I will return on Sunday night. That next day, Monday, we'll have our 9 week weigh in at the TEAM Weight Loss Program that I'm doing... Another reason I really have to be good during those conference days... I'll keep you posted.
