So I am back to where I was last June, JUST about to hit 170... But honestly, it just seems like this is the point in my weight loss journey where I just have to try HARDER than I used to! When I started, I was easily dropping 3 lbs a week and sometimes eating over my calories. Now, my weight loss has slowed to (a healthy) 1-2lbs a week. This last week I have worked harder than before (doing the January Jumpstart Challenge) and eating around 1200 cal a day and I lost 1.4lbs. This is a little frustrating, when it used to come so easy to me.
But, on the positive side, I am now only 1.2 lbs away from having lost 50lbs since last year! I feel amazing, I smile every time I pass that big mirror at the gym, and other aspects of my life are going swimmingly!
I also need to remind myself of my monthly weight fluctuations and the added stress of moving to a new place next week. If I really think about it, I am downright amazing!!!
So I went to the motivational quotes page and found a few new ones to add to my collection... these never were a big motivation for me until I fell down the hill and had to claw my way back up again and past the point that made me stop last time... Now I want to cry when I see some of them!
So I will leave you lovelies with this:
