First things first. I'm down 2 pounds! Yeah! Grand total: 29 lbs! This week's weight loss put me over the 10% mark! Yes, I have now lost over 10% of my starting body weight. That's the nervous part of this. By admitting this, if you're decent at math, you now know my starting weight. *Sigh*
Yes, back in August - I had ballooned to my highest weight EVER. Two hundred and eighty-two pounds. UGH. My heart is thumping like crazy to admit my weight. Ya know?? (We women are SO protective of our weight). When I first started this blog, I thought I was 30 pounds heavier than when I got married the year before. Recently I ran across my old Weight Watchers log from that time. Um....was I off! I had gained FORTY-THREE pounds in one year! Ridiculous! I was plagued with pictures like this:
Love my friend, but MAN...I was hating my fat face (for starters)!
I heart my sister and our goofy sense of humor. Look at that double chin! Yuck.
The last picture is one of many that were taken on a road-trip with my sister. She took one with her phone that day that made me realize how big I had become. It was taken the weekend before I started this blog. The one above isn't nearly as bad (but bad enough), and I'm glad I don't have the other! Ha!
So, now everyone knows where I've been. Where I am now. Also, you now know about how long the road ahead of me is!! Keep following along. I'm going to get there. Wait and see.
So, about this past week. I honestly don't feel like I deserved the 2 pound loss I saw this morning. My eating was way less than stellar, though not horrible. It was a tough week. Exercise was lighter than normal. I'm experiencing a little bit of burn out. The weather & time change has really made a huge difference in my activity. So, I'm surprised the scale swung in my favor. I'm very happy for it, though! I'll take it and keep going. I KNOW that kind of week won't happen twice in a row. So, this week I'm going to pick up the pace! Maybe.....just maybe....I'll go out and try to run. Lord knows I miss it! I want to test my hip. It's been feeling a lot better.
Well, that's about it for today. I'm hoping to be around more this week. I've missed blogging!
