I finally feel like my hangover bloat from 2 (or was it 3) days ago is gone. I was feeling super good this morning, so good I thought I would weigh myself to see the progress in the past week. 195. Not depressed about this number, not excited either. I feel like I am maintaining instead of losing. My next goal is to get to 186 by the 1/2 Mary on march 17. I lost 1 pound in a week. Not sure if I should set my sights on that particular number. I know I have to stay positive about weight loss. It’s not always on the scale.
Things I need to remind myself when the number doesn’t reflect the effort.
~I can definitely tell my size 14’s are loose after coming out of the dryer.
~All my XL shirts are too baggy for me to wear.
~my workouts are increasingly easier to do as time passes.
~I can seriously do “real push ups”
~people are noticing I’m losing weight
It’s definitely frustrating and not easy to lose weight. 195, this number isn’t my number. I will lose another pound next week, and the week after, and if I dont i won’t beat myself up about it.
I have to be diligent when it comes to food. I can’t give into temptation when it’s my day off and the hubs asks me if I want seconds or a beer. I’m going to stick to this dry kick.
Thursday is as good as any other day to make it my weigh in day. No more daily weigh ins. I really think it starts messing with your head after awhile.
I started this blog to be accountable to a healthy lifestyle, not just exercising. Exercising is really only a small part of living healthfully.
