1.2 lbs away from a total of 50 lbs lost...!

Thursday, January 24, 2013

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:

    Yes you are amazing. Kudos on the loss, that's impressive and you recognize the variations in losing. That sets you up for the next step, dealing with plateaus. Yeah, you SHOULD smile every time you pass a mirror!

    Not sure why, but it's always those last few pounds before you reach your goal that are the hardest to lose. Sometimes they seem impossible to get off! But you are almost there, so just keep doing what you're doing and the victory will be yours. Way to go on your 1.4 lb loss and congrats on your new home!
