No Puking for Me & Celebrating Pounds GONE!

Thursday, November 04, 2010

After taking a Rest Day yesterday, I worked out with my trainer today. We worked on upper body & core and he worked me SO HARD! He said that 2 of his clients had thrown up yesterday! And, I think he was trying to make me #3! emoticon But, I held strong and made it through.

My thrill of the day was my weigh in this morning. I had weighed in at 143 on Monday. I have been at 143 for about a week and staying between 142 & 143 for about the past 5 weeks. Well, all of a sudden, the scale changed! I dropped 3.5 pounds and finally made it into the 130's! emoticon

I find it strange that this same thing happened about 5 weeks ago. I was at a plateau for about a month and then, within just 4 or 5 days, the scale 'dropped' 3.5 pounds! I'll take those pounds any way I can get them! emoticon

So, what does this mean?
emoticon I'm in the 130's, something I haven't seen since high school more than 20 years ago!
emoticon I only have 3.5 pounds to go to meet my original goal weight - the weight I was in high school.
emoticon I only have 0.5 pounds to go to reach 20 lbs lost
emoticon I only have 0.5 pounds to go to reach 25 lbs lost from my heaviest about 2 years ago

I'm thrilled and can't wait to see that scale more a little more! I won't be done losing, though. But, I honestly don't know what my ideal weight will be. For now, I'll just aim for that 136!

    That's why is so important not to give up when we hit a plateau. All kinds of things are happening in our body even when the scale doesn't move, and if we keep at it, all of sudden - the payoff!

Keep up the great work!

    Congratulations for hanging in there. I lose weight like that that this time -- flat or 1 lb. loss per week for several weeks, then a 3 lb. loss. I am so happy that I persisted instead of throwing up my hands, as I have done in the past.

    great job girl! I am needing to focus on losing more weight myself. It has been a little too long since the scale has moved for me, almost a year. no gain but no losses. getting a little too comfy.

thanks for motivating me!
