Current Weight: 263
Weight Goal: 180
I have been dieting for a week now. I have been strength training, working on portion control and watching what I eat. I didn't think that when I stepped on the scale I would see much difference in the numbers. I was just hoping I didn't gain weight. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw 263. I lost 7 pounds this week!
I think this is the motivation I need to do my cardio. If in one week I can lose 7 pounds without cardio, I'm excited to see what can happen with it!
I keep thinking about 'The Biggest Loser'. I would watch that show and think to myself, if I could get those numbers in one week, I would work out too.
I had to have my sister verify the number. I still cannot believe it. I am so proud of myself for sticking with the program and not giving into temptation. It's been on my mind, hounding me. Having that extra plate of spaghetti, eating fast food. I am so happy I stood my ground because these are the results I want to see to keep me pumped!
I know my family has been a big help. We're all eating healthier now and s0metimes they will join me in my workouts. They are so supportive and I know they are happy for me.
I have to stay motivated. I may not always see the numbers change but I can't get discouraged. I love the way I am feeling right at this moment. I feel that I can achieve anything and that for once in my life, my weight won't control me.
