Here I am, down 10 pounds again. I am now at my 2nd heaviest weight milestone. I weighed in at 130 at Christmas of 2009 and I stayed there for for 3 years. I haven't been my goal weight since Grade 9 (2006/07). I always find I hit 130 and stop working out or I stop seeing results because I give myself a break. I mean, I lost 10 pounds, why shouldn't I get a break right?
Wrong is the answer I've finally discovered. I need to keep going against this PSYCHOLOGICAL plateau I've created for myself. I'm a little concerned that I managed to lose 10 pounds within 3 weeks, instead of the planned 5. I wasn't under-eating or anything. I was just exercising more than my fitness plan said to, but not over-exercising. I find there's a distinct difference there.
I put on my red dress today. I haven't worn it since the beginning of my first year of university. When I bought it, I was 130 and it fit okay. Today it fits better than I remember it ever fitting, but I'm not sure if that's just 2 years of dreaming going on. I can't wait to try it at 120 though.
As a side note, I discovered that an extra 10 pounds may not be the answer to my body problems. When I hit my goal, I'll definitely re-asses and go from there. But that putting the cart before the horse at this point. Go me!
