Slow and steady, but it's working!
Saturday, July 28, 2012
So I weighed in for the first time in 5.5 weeks, and I weighed in at 145.0, or 2.2 lbs less. 2.2 pounds in 5.5 weeks is just a loss of .4 lb/week, which is a little less than my goal if .5 pound a week, but that's ok! I know my exercise hasn't been as intense or as frequently as it should've been in order to lose more than that.
At any rate, according to my sparkpage, exactly 1 year ago on this day I weighed 26 pounds heavier, so I have been really good with my -.5 lb/week goal. 26 pounds in 52 weeks is exactly on target, so I'm pretty happy about that!
Since I got down to 145, I get to reward myself...so right now I'm still sweaty from working out, but I'm going to shower and then drive over to a salon and get a new haircut! I've been desperately needing one, but haven't made the time. The plan is to get 5-6" cut off (I have really long hair), get some really cool drastic layers, and fix my bangs into more of a layered, side-swept look.
I might upload a picture if I feel the haircut is pretty cool!
SO anyway, my goal is to get down to 140 by September 1st, which is 5 pounds in 5 weeks. A little more intense than the rate I've been going at, and my nutrition tracker changed to reflect that-- I now have to eat 1210-1560 calories/day rather than 1400-1750.
I know I can do it! And I'm glad I've kept up the weight loss in the summer, however slow that weight loss is.
And now that the Olympics are on, I'm feeling more inspired to work out and eat right...!!
