Low 80's both Saturday and Sunday! Nice and Sunny! Low humidity too. A perfect summer weekend in Chicago. I took a jog along the lake, and a nice long 21 mile bikeride along the lake yesterday. I also laid out on the beach for a couple hours yesterday. Verrry relaxing.
I'm down to 202 now. Sooo close to under 200!! My original goal was to be under 200 by the end of July, but I had such a bad 3 week plateau. I'm just so pleased and amazed by the end of the month that I still lost 7 pounds this month in spite of that.
I also had week 2 of taking measurements. I decided to do these when I wake up on Sundays. I'm really glad I started doing it. I lost a half inch around my neck, 1.25 off my hips and 1 inch around my waist!
I also got my first weightloss compliment yesterday! Obviously I have lost about 70 pounds now so I've had quite a few of those in the past (feels nice) but I've now lost almost 20 pounds since I recommitted. I was at my friends doin a little BBQ, and his friend who I hadn't seen in a while says "hey wow you're looking really thin!" I'm mostly used to people who see me regularly... the boyfriend, all my coworkers so 20 pounds isnt too dramatic when you see it go down gradually. Sooo that felt nice :) Nice to have it confirmed that there is a visible change in my appearance!
Sooo that I suppose was good news first. I did go about 500 calories over yesterday. BUT everything else went so well I'm just not lettin it get me down. I've been totally on spot with my calories everyday for a couple weeks. SO I figure if anything, this will just be making my body think "better not slow that metabolism, this girl just ate a whoooole lotta food today!"
Today is a new day. Off to a great start with a 5k run this morning at the gym, a nice walk to work, and a light healthy breakfast. Softball game and grilled salmon dinner to look forward to tonight! Kicking my week off right!
