So I went back to look at my goals for this competition. I have mixed feelings. When I filled out the "Getting to Know You" questionnaire, I was at 255lbs and my goal was to lose 30lbs (a very high goal, I know) during 8 weeks. However, I filled that out very early, and weighed in at 248lbs during week 0. Since I weighed in at 244lbs today at the doctor, I've either lost 11lbs or 4lbs. One of those numbers makes me feel awesome, and the other makes me feel like I've been wasting my time. I know any loss is good, but 4lbs in 4 weeks? That sucks. Ahh well, I can't do anything about what the scale says if I feel like I'm doing everything I can to stay on track with dieting and exercise. During the second half of the competition, my goal is simply to be out of a size 18 and back into a 16. I don't care what the scale says.
