I just got in from my Weight Watcher's weigh in and I lost 6.4lbs! I am extremely happy AND relieved.
I started on Dec 1st and for 8 weeks in a row I have lost weight! Anywhere from 6 to 3 lbs a week!
Well on my 9th week I GAINED A POUND! I know a lousy pound is not much but it rattled me!
I take FULL responsibility! I slacked off! It's MY fault and no one else's!
I over ate at a Super Bowl party a little and I had to do some traveling so I ate at a truck stop and ate some snacks driving to keep me awake! And I only worked out 3 times that week instead of 7.
My friends and family and my WW buddy all said the same thing! Don't worry about it it's OK. Just get back on track that's what counts!
Well I said NO just getting back on track is NOT enough! I have to make up that week I should have lost 2 or 3 pounds and gained a pound!
So I made up my mind that I was going to eat SUPER clean and workout extra and lose 3 pounds for the week but I was going to lose an EXTRA 3 pounds to make up for the week I slacked off!
So I ate less than 1500 cals for one week and worked out TWO hours a day 3X's last week and guess what!
YEP you know already! I did it I lost the 6 pounds! I feel like I corrected the week before and redeemed myself! LOL!
NOW! I am back on track with a vengeance! LOL!
I got a reminder of how it doesn't take to many times to slip or cheat and the weight could start sneaking back on me!
It felt SO good to bump my ticker back a little bit!
I am 40 pounds down now! I am so stoked! I am really doing it! I KNOW I can do it now! I feel like I should pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming!
I am FIVE pounds away from going into the 200's from 345!
THAT MEANS IF I HIT IT HARD AGAIN I COULD conceivably be under 300 next Monday at my next WW weigh in!
I STILL have a 105lbs left to lose to reach my goal so I won't be celebrating just yet but I can't help but feel good about my small accomplishment I can only IMAGINE how good it must feel to actually hit your goal! It must be euphoric!!!
ahhh life is good!
