Starting weight 8/06/2012: 201 lbs
Last week: 193.6 lbs
Current week: 193 lbs
I have met my second goal of being 193.2 lbs or under! This is important because it's the lowest I have weighed in 2012 (and probably 2011). Also, this marks 8 lbs lost! It was only 0.6 lbs for the week, but I am super thrilled with meeting another short term goal. My next goal is 189.8 lbs and being done with the 190s for good!
My exercise was ok last week. Still only walking and only at work, but 15-45 minutes each work day. Eating was up and down, and one really bad day. I get depressed on Fridays when I have to work the weekend. Ended up doing major damage at lunch, and even ate a Twinkie for a snack! Got it back together by dinner though, and did well through the weekend.
My birthday is in 6 weeks and we are going to a resort/ casino to celebrate. I want to lose 8 lbs by then and be 185 lbs! That would be a fantastic gift to myself, don't you think? 8 lbs in 6 weeks doesn't sound that tough. But right now I am not on pace to do that. I lost most of the weight so far the first two weeks and have been trending slowly downward ever since. I have eaten better than I have in years and more exercise than I have in years, but I am not quite getting the 1 lb a week I am aiming for (if you don't count weeks one and two). So, I obviously need to do something more. Days off kill me because I have a hard time behaving. Every other Friday is killing me because I would rather curl up in a fetal position and perish than face anything, let alone weight loss. And I am going to have to find more exercises I can do at home for my days off.
Goals for the week:
Lose 1 lb!
Find one new exercise I can do at home.
My reward for reaching goal #2 is to buy someing exercise related for the house, so do it!
Eat at home more. I am doing better, but still needs tweaked.
