I woke up extremely early this morning so I could get to my interview (which was in Waterloo). Before leaving, I made sure to weigh in. And the results are...
Starting Weight: 262.7 pounds
Week 4 Weight: 245.1 pounds
Current Weight: 243 pounds
I'm down 2.1 this week! I'll take it. And over 5 weeks, I've lost a total of 19.7 pounds. Will I reach 20 pounds lost by the end of Week 6?! We shall see.
I had some toast with leftover spinach and artichoke dip before my mom and I left around 6:15 am. I prepared lots of food last night to take with me (after my interview in Waterloo, I had to go straight to Scarborough to teach at my current job). I made a huge green smoothie to drink on the way to the interview, a sandwich for lunch, and baby carrots and a cut up orange for snacks.
While we were driving merrily along the highway, I realized I'd left all of my food at home. Oh dear.
Luckily, because I'm me, I was over an hour early for my interview (have I mentioned on the blog before that I'm compulsively early for everything? Sometimes it can be a bit extreme). My mom and I stopped at Williams to kill some time.
I was able to get hot water with lemon and a banana. :)
The interview was okay. I was surprised by how nervous I was, though. I paused in the middle of my first answer to take a drink of water, and my hands were literally trembling! As the interview progressed, though, I got more confident. I will keep you guys posted - apparently I should find out by the end of the week if I get the job.
After the interview, we stopped at a grocery store for more provisions:
|I'll have you know, I did not eat all of those walnuts in one sitting.|
|They didn't even have beans to throw on there!|
All in all, I was proud that I was able to stay on plan, despite forgetting my lunch at home.
