It seems that everytime i doubt myself, i end up succeeding. I don't know how that works. I wrote in my last blog that I was 186.8 and I didn't think I'd meet my short term goal of 185 by June 15th. So I stepped on the scale on friday and I was 185.2. And I was really shocked and happy that I got to 185.2. Fast forward to Sunday and I'm exactly 185!
I can't believe I met my goal. And I am so proud of myself. Exercise helped. But I suspect some of my weight loss is from not eating - I had a super stressful day at work and was on the phone non stop for 7 hours. Anything that could go wrong, did, and I was stuck at my desk. So I didn't get a chance to eat :-(
I'm still shocked that I'm still exercising. Normally, I'm gung ho about exercise for about 3 weeks and then life takes over or i have a crappy week and don't go. I've been going to the gym now for 4 months. Its crazy that it's been that long.
On 4/22, I weighed 194.6. So in a little less than 2 months, I've lost ~10lbs. That's an accomplishment. So now I have to set another short term goal. So going at my current rate, I'm setting a NEW GOAL of 175 by September 1.
It's going to be hard, weight loss is never easy. The 4th of July and the rest of summer is going to be a test of my will power and motivation. But I CAN DO IT!!!
