Yeah! Finally under 190!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I was so happy (and still am) when I saw 188.2 lb on the scale this morning.
Because I've been waiting for that number since september! Yes, you read that right!

In August, I reached 198 (yeah for being under 200!) and decided I wanted to reach 190 by my birthday, september 10. But I did not reach it and I've been slooooowly losing (or I must say losing than gaining than losing again and gaining back and losing stil) since.
I was not losing my Spark, but I was getting a bit discouraged.
But BOOM! There it was this morning! This big drop (3 pounds in one week is HUGE when it took you months to lose the same amount) also keeps my goal for BLC atteinable, if I lose a little less than 2 pounds per week until the end. If I lose 15 pounds instead of the 20 I originally hoped for, I would still be happy cosidering the very slow first 3 weeks.

With that weightloss, I also was finally able to edit my ticker! When I started last year, the idea of losing 100 pounds seemed a little overwhelming, so I divided it two: from 242 to 190 and from 190 to 140. I am so happy to start fresh with a new ticker, knowing I've lost more than I need to lose now!

I also updated my plan. I realise now that maybe that's why I wasn't losing that much. I had not update my calorie range in a while and realised I need to drop about 300 calories a day. I decided to push myself a little more on the workouts and set my goal of weekly calories burned to 2500 instead of 2000, so in the end, my calorie intake range is just slightly lower than before.

With these changes and my refound motivation from the loss, I hope I'll reach my goal of losing 20 pounds during the 12 weeks of BLC.
But even if I manage to lose only another 10 pounds, I will be super happy, because I will not longer be considered obese!!!

Have a great day!

    Je me réjouis pour toi ! En voilà une bonne nouvelle !
Tes efforts sont en train de payer, ne lâche rien. C'est bien que tu revisites ta fourchette de calories (no pun intended, comme diraient nos amis anglophones) pour booster ton métabolisme.
Tu es sur la bonne voie, et te voilà regonflée à bloc pour perdre ces 10 autres lbs !

    Zoe-- I would like you to make a note in your supremely awesome Viking pad, a pledge from me to you:

At this point in BLC 22-- I vow to be posting the same damn thing. Mark it babe. I take this success as a huge motivator for my butt to shrink to where you are at now.

I LOVE that you are doing a two parter ticker-- and that you are over halfway done! That's fantastic!

Resetting that ticker-- you're around the bend on your journey, girl! Way to go!
