Have you ever been on a weight loss plan, and if so, have you ever had one of those weeks where you were 99% certain that you would see results on weigh-in day? This past week was one of those weeks. One week ago, I made a vow to myself to count every point I put in my mouth. See, that’s what I’m supposed to do, but often it slips my mind, or I am so embarrassed by everything I’ve eaten that I don’t want to record it, or I just give up and go on a feeding frenzy. I didn’t give up this past week and it was one of my most successful weeks!
I lost 3.8 pounds (1.72 kg) this week and it feels fantastic! I’ve lost a total of 18.5 pounds and people are really starting to notice! I love hearing people say that I’ve been doing well. It is such a motivator, and believe me, I need all the motivation I can get! Back in March, when I lost 2 pounds at my first weigh-in, I thought I’d never get this far. It feels phenomenal, and I’m really looking forward to being attractive.
My plan is to put a picture of myself on Facebook when I’ve lost 60 pounds (27.22 kg). I want to lose a total of 120 pounds (54.43 kg) so 60 is my halfway point. I want people to be proud of me and to realize that I’m trying to improve my life. Most of all, I want a compliment from the boy.
I should mention that I have been doing a great job of going to Weight Watchers meetings. I’ve joined and quit after about a month for the past 3 times I’ve joined Weight Watchers (I hope that makes sense). This time around, I’ve been going for almost 3 months. I don’t know where this motivation is coming from, but I’m pretty stoked about it! Perhaps I’m becoming a glass-half-full kind of gal? The other day, I was thinking and I said to myself, “It will take forever to lose all this weight.” Then, my optimistic side took over and said “I’ve lost almost 20 pounds, that’s a huge accomplishment!” Hopefully, next week I’ll be able to say that I’ve lost 20 pounds total. Once I’ve lost 20, I’m going to take my camera out again and show my before/after shots and stats.
