I was really hoping to be in the 240s by today, I was extremely close yesterday, and somehow I had a feeling that I'd be there by today. I was right! But I wasn't at 249, I was at 248! So that was definitely a very exciting surprise! I'm officially in the 240s and I'm now 72 lbs down! Tomorrow marks 5 months since I started this ever so amazing lifestyle change and I could not be any more thrilled with the results I have been getting since day 1!
I had mentioned in my last blog that my weight-loss may have been slowing down a tiny bit. I thought I wouldn't lose anymore than 10 lbs this month (July 16 - August 16), but today which is one day before the "month" is over, I've lost 11 lbs this past month! Like I've said many times, I had never lost less than 13 lbs in one month, and several months lost as much as 16 lbs in that month alone. So yes, 11 lbs in a little less, but it's still A LOT of weight! Most people would consider 11 lbs in one month a lot of weight (which it is)! So I'm still very, very happy with the amount of weight I'm still losing.
I'm hoping to lose no less than 10 lbs for the next few months, until I get a lot closer to being under 200 lbs. As of right now I'm 3 lbs away from my next small goal, which is to hit 75 lbs down. I'm 20 lbs away from reaching 228 lbs, which is the lowest I had been since 2009, I was there in early 2011. AND... I'm only 28 lbs away from being 100 lbs lost!!! It's so crazy that I'm only that amount away from being 100 lbs lighter in just under 5 months... WOW!
But, I've worked hard, and therefore I have had great results! I'm reaching all of my goals in incredible timing, which lets me know I'll be to my ultimate goal weight before I know it. And I'm doing everything the 100% healthy way! No pills, crash diets, or anything like that! Just staying dedicated to my plan :)
