Weigh in was this morning and I'm bummed. My weekly goals have been 1, 1, 2, 3. I've been at 1.5, 1.5, 2.5 but only 1.5 today. I'm still losing so I should be thrilled and I've lost 7.5 inches (3 just on my waist), so that's all good, but I'm still really bummed that I missed this weeks goal. First of all because I didn't realize I had 3 pounds for this week. If I had filled out my goals after I knew it takes burning 3500 calories for every pound of fat, I wouldn't have put any week at 3 pounds. I just need to realize I'm down 7 pounds & 7.5 inches in 4 weeks. That's probably better progress then I've ever had before, so I need to be happy with that. It's just my competitive nature that I don't want to 'not meet' a goal I've set. I was released to start gradual jogging/running again, so hopefully that will help with meeting my weekly goals.
This week will also be hard to get in all the exercise because of activities - I'm meeting friends to celebrate a friend's college graduation tonight, plus we have 3 graduation parties this week and 10 next week (so far). Willpower will have to be huge this week!
