Friday's Weigh-In

Sorry to post a day late. I must admit I was worried this week. I did step up the personal training sessions to 4 days a week (including 4:30am yesterday). I also ate french fries twice last week (which I rarely do).

So I was at 49 pounds lost last week and you know how when you are close to a major milestone and you step it up to make that milestone, something usually moves the scale in the other direction? That was my panic and fear yesterday morning (about 4:00am) before I stepped on the scale.

However, that scale showed a 1.5 pound loss. Nothing extraordinary but solid nonetheless. It was also enough to push me through that milestone. So I am at 50.5 pounds lost. I started doing all sorts of calculations and since I began in July of 2008, I am averaging 1.6 pounds lost each week. That seems like a slow and steady pace.

I also began to think how it will sound now that I can say "yeah, I've lost 50 pounds." I also thought that if my end goal were to lose 100 pounds (which I do not have an end goal yet), I can say I am over half way there (not by much, but I could say it).

Hmmmm....I just hope getting through the 50 pound range of weight loss goes faster than the 40 pound range went for me. I will just keep up the workouts and healthy eating.

Another question, what is your end goal? And how did you choose it?

50.5 pounds! That's awesome. Congratulations!

My goal? I've decided to just take it one day at a time.

My motto is:
"Maybe I didn't do everything perfectly yesterday. That's no excuse for messing up today. Today is a new day, and I get a new start today."

Woo Hoo! WTG on the loss and on hitting that milestone!
