I was so emotional over last week’s weigh-in, because of the big gain I had. This week, I am not emotional and just more relieved.
Last week’s weigh-in: 171.5 lbs
This week’s weigh-in: 169 lbs
Loss of 2.5 lbs
I worked hard this past week, exercising consistently, making “healthier” choices, drinking tons of water, and limiting my snacking at night. I keep hearing over and over how stress can lead to a weight gain (OK, it’s Jillian Michaels from the Biggest Loser TV show that keeps telling me that…..didn’t you know! Well, I didn’t know but I think the lady trainer mega God is right). I was in a funk last week but it has since passed, thank goodness.
I want to be at least 10-15 lbs lighter when I run the 1/2 marathon with Team Shrinking Jeans in June. I just know my body will continue to thank me as I shed the pounds and have less weight to pound my knees and ankles as I run. When I run, I imagine the two people I am running in memory of and let me just say, those thoughts only fuel me on.
I am very happy to be back in the 160′s and plan to stay here for a short while as I make my way to the 150′s. I know what I need to do- now, I just have to keep doing it. Couldn’t this be true for a lot of us? We know what we need to do, but we just have to do it. That’s the hard part though. I say BRING IT ON.
