Default 10% of me GONE!

Hello Ladies,

Well, I am pleased to report that I reached another milestone this morning. Today the scale read 283 which means that I have officially lost 10% of my body weight since January. Yay!

Isn't it funny how we get so excited about every pound lost? This week's net loss is only 2 lbs. But actually, I had re-gained 5 pounds over the weekend due to a serious fall off the wagon. So, I had to put myself back on Phase I of the SouthBeach diet again to make any progress. I am still struggling with Phase II, but increasing exercise and sticking to the core elements of my program. That seems to be working, at least.

Today, I am happy. There is 10% of me less than there was in January. On to the next 10% and next mini-goal.

Have a great weekend everyone.
Wish me luck!

Current Mini-Goal (under 300)

Ultimate Goal (125)

Congrats book!

Every pound lost does feel good. We may not see it or feel each individual pound physically but I think it tells us that what we've been doing is working and that spurs us on. I know that's how I feel. Like, with my weight loss so far, I feel lighter when I'm walking. I'm not sure whether it's more the weight or that I have more of "a spring in my step" from using my walking as exercise and feeling good about it, but somehow the two kind of channel into each other, you know? It's like I'm carrying less weight around so I feel good so I'm gonna keep moving so I will continue to feel good or better.

You've got a great attitude about the "fall off the wagon"! What else can we do besides dust ourselves off and get back on? Sit with our tushies in the mudpies? No way! (besides, with my tush, that mudpie will flatten out to the size of a satellite dish!)

Good luck and keep on truckin'!

Weight loss isn't linear and the body doesn't have a timetable. - thanks Glory87.

I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.

That's great news. I am on SB too since the last week in Oct. Don't worry about falling off the wagon so to speak...just make sure that you jump right back on before the next meal. Believe me I am getting real good at jumping back on the wagon. Can't wait to see your next post. Keep up the good work!
