Well, today was my official "personal weigh-in day". I was really hoping to have lost 2 pounds this week, based on extra hours of exercise, etc etc. HOWEVER, I'd lost 2 pounds the week before, so maybe having only lost 1 pounds this week - just maybe that will set me up to keep on going down the next week.
I am not burned out, so hopefully, I can continue to exercise, eat right, drink that water, & stay motivated. Losing only one pound is so much better than losing ZERO or worse yet, better than GAINING ! SO - I'll take it, and run with it (literally!!).
I actually started this losing-thing at the weight of 178 - a few days after Christmas. It felt good to break out of the 170's, then to break out of the 160's & to now be in the 150's. At 156 now, I'm hoping to reach that mid-way point of 155 by next Friday. It's been a while since I have seen that weight, and I can honestly say that my clothes are fitting better and I feel so much more energy, and trivial things don't seem to bother me at all. It's such a high - I wish that everyone who is overweight could get on this "wagon" - it's the best...
