Spring Fling – The Shrinking Jeans of Thea

Oh my goodness, I almost missed it!!

Based on the changes that I made this week as far as water and candy, I was VERY happy to step on the scale this morning and see a 2.2 pound LOSS!!  Yippee!!

After my little hiccup, today’s weight of 156.2 puts me at 14 weeks of keeping my weight between 153 and 157.

Let’s just pretend that I didn’t actually make any goals for this challenge, k? I didn’t do so well with tracking my goals this time around.

In fairly unrelated news, I’m going to buy a bike soon.  I haven’t owned my own bike since I was in high school…5 years ago.

Oh my goodness!

I totally forgot to post last week and I nearly forgot to post this week.

Bad Sister!

I am up a pound this week but I’m cool with that.  I am still within my range (11 weeks now, WOOHOO!) and I know why I’m up this week.

Gaining is no longer an issue because more often than not I know what I did wrong and how I can change it.  It really is freeing to be at this point.

But I feel like I need to talk about something else for fear that my posts will be boring.

I’ll do that next week, as long as I don’t forget to post!

So I’m in this really strange place in my head (which ain’t saying much).

I’m down a 1/2 pound this week…but I totally don’t feel like I deserve to be.  I have been eating like crap, CRAP for a while now, but I keep on staying within my weight range.  It’s like I’ve given my body license to continue to eat like CRAP even though I’m within my range.

Not exactly the most healthy attitude in the world to have.

I should be eating like AWESOME and maintaining.  That should be my goal. I shouldn’t be trying to see how much I can get away with.

Anyhoo, I’ve updated my goals for this challenge.  They were pretty much the same as the last challenge, I just changed up my running goal a bit.  Instead of running so many miles on specific days, I just need to meet my weekly mileage goal.  I’ll be increasing the goal by 10% every week.

If I can keep up with that, I should have no problems with my 8k and 10k in a few months!

Where to begin, where to begin…

So, I missed weigh in yesterday.  I did have a loss and so I have officially maintained my weight range for 8 weeks now without counting a single Weight Watchers Point.

For the Spring Fling, I am proud to be a member of Team Fabulous! We’re gonna kick your butts!  LOL!

Also, the last couple of weeks, The Sisterhood sponsored the Shrinking Jeans Olympics.  I am proud to report that I brought home two medals!  I won the gold as part of a 4×1 mile relay team (35:46 combined time), and I snagged a silver in the 2 mile fast walk (26:12 time).

That’s all for now!  Happy Shrinking…or maintaining!
