I said at the beginning of the week that Friday was going to be my "official" WI day from now on. The scale said 311.6 this morning, which is a 2.4 lb. loss since Wednesday! I know I'm still losing water weight like crazy, but it still feels good to see this holiday weight going bye-bye. Now, I only have 5 lbs to go to get back to where I was before the holidays.

I stayed OP yesterday, despite my rocky start. I have found that when I TRY to adjust my mood, that I can make myself feel better. Yesterday afternoon Clyde switched cars with me while I was at job #1, but he forgot to put my uniform in the car for me. So I had to drive all the way home to get it and was late for job #2. I was so mad, but on the way home I made myself calm down. It was an accident, and he was trying to be nice by leaving me the car with the heat. So I knew that going home and chewing him out wouldn't do anything but cause an argument, and it really wasn't necessary. It sounds silly, but it made me feel good that I took control of my emotions and put them in check.

I had my healthy food and snacks for work last night, and stuck to them. I ended the day with 7 cups of water, 5 f/v, and 1.5 servings of dairy.
