The yuck stops here!!!

I am going to cut to the chase: down 1.8 this week!!! Two weeks in a row with a loss!! Hip hip hooray!!!!

Now I do not condone only eating apples and breath mints on weigh in day, and I also do not think I should step on the scale at home any more. Yes, Kristin, I'm talking to me. I keep playing these mind games with myself and it's more destructive than anything I could physically do to myself because the psychological bullshit I hand myself really starts to build up and causes this emotional implosion. Not cool. Not cool at all.

So... Here I sit in my meeting typing this, waiting for my inspiration to carry with me for the week instead of the desperation I give to myself. I tried two of the e-mealz recipes and it was very easy to stay on program when I prepare healthy and delicious meals for myself. It's one way to treat myself without costing me any weight or extra money.

While I was sitting at my meeting, I got a text message from one of my amazing friends in reference to my post about being so self-conscious about working out in front of people. She made an excellent point: this isn't about them. It's all about me, so I need to get over worrying what people think. True dat!!

I am so lucky to have such incredible, supportive friends who tell me what I need to hear. *smooches*

  1. Hallelujah! Praise be! Testify!! Throw that damned scale O-U-T! You need to start focusing on eating to be healthier and FEEL better. The weight loss will follow. I promise!

    And as far as working out in front of people, I've come to realize they don't give 2 shits about you. They're not even looking at you. They're too wrapped up in their own workouts. I also know that if they DO seem to notice you it's more of a 'good for her' opinion. Most of these people started out just as we did. How the hell do you think they got those bodies in the first place? Obviously they needed to work at them and still do. Duh.

  2. Yahoo I made it onto your blog! I'm famous!

    Like Krisp1108 said (wise person that they are), sorry to say but people could give a rats ass about you. They are wrapped up in their own insecurities and issues to care about anyone around them. I promise that people are there to focus on themselves, not you. GET OVER IT. You are letting your fears dictate your actions. Lame.

    Said with love, of course. Because you, my dear, are not lame.

    Oh, and congrats on the loss!

  3. I like Molly :D
    I meant to add, the only time I looked at a woman and asked myself WTF?! was because she was on the elliptacle. Wearing a long skirt. For realz. Now THAT is how you make people look at you funny!

  4. Molly is a flippin rock star. I ♥ her. i am still surprised you two haven't met yet! but then again, Krispy... it did take us four years to finally meet up. now that Molly is back in the United States after a too-long stint in Germany, we will definitely have a girls' day out soon to which you are most definitely invited!

  5. Ummm, let's make this happen, okay? Stat!

  6. Molly and Krispy - we definitely should have a girls' day out soon although you're both so busy with your schedules! I can drive to the South Shore mall any time - it is never a huge sacrifice to drive to a mall for me.
