So after my mini binge and freak out at only seeing a 0.5 loss on the scale on Monday, I weighed in at group and am down 3 pounds!! Yay! We also did a body composition reading. Oy. Apparently I am 49.6% fat. So I am literally half fat. That is truly frightening. But, instead of beating myself up like I normally would, I am deciding to take it in stride and am excited for the next reading at week 18 because I know there will be a BIG difference!
This week starts the war on the jiggle. 49.6% body fat, meet the gym. Gym, meet my jiggly parts. I am actually looking forward to starting to work out, because I know this will bump up my loss big time. The leader at group last night said the best record they've ever had was someone losing 80 pounds in the 16 week fast period, and that person exercised a lot. My goal is to beat that record and possibly lose 85, which would mean I would need to average a loss of 6 lbs per week. I think I can I think I can! So I have a calender and have highlighted the days for myself that I am going to the gym, and I am going to look at them just like I look at my work schedule, not optional!
I am definitely noticing a change in how I feel. I feel so much more positive and excited for what's to come. I am feeling myself heading back to the state of mind I used to be in before life got so crazy and the choices I made led me to such a depressing and stressful place.
Well I hope anyone reading this has a fabulous week! Stay positive and always always believe in the power of YOU! Can't wait to see what the scale says next week!
