Monday: Weigh in!

Well hello again friends? How have you been doing?

Me... I'm good. I'm down another bit of weight this week. I stepped on the scale at 218.8 this morning


That is awesome! Just 3.8 lbs til my first mini-goal weight (215) and then I am going to go in 5 lb increments until I hit 175 (my ultimate goal)

I have to say that things are going very well for me in the weight loss department. I am so pleased with my progress lately. I know 2 major factors are contributing to my weight loss and that is not eating my extra points (eating 'less') and running 3x a week (moving more)

Kayla kindly reminded me that her wedding is in 3 months. My goal so far has been to lose 3/4 of a lb each week (on average) until the wedding. Something small, and readily attainable. In 4 weeks, I lost an average of 2.2 lbs, which puts me at an average loss of .5 lbs a week. Which is great! I still maintain that any loss is better than a gain and those little numbers do add up. That being said, I did not hardly track at all last week even though I still ran, and still reported a loss, I am getting back on the tracking thing. 

If I am able to maintain the average loss of .75 lbs a week until Kayla's big day, that would put me somewhere in the neighborhood of ~209 lbs. That would put me literally *thisclose* to my 10% weight of 207, which is my next WW milestone. It's also pretty smack dab in the middle of my weight loss journey. I will be down 30 lbs from my highest, and with only 32 lbs to go until my official and serious goal of 175. I can taste victory! I am so ready to be done with the high 210s-low 220s. I am ready... for real this time.... to get back down to the lower 200s. I am ready to do this.

  3. Yayyy! And I think it's wonderful that you're comfortable with slow, stead weight-loss. It seems like most people want faster results! Where you ever like that?
