This morning was my 1st weigh in after starting the PT 24/7 workout last week
I had gained wieght from m birthday and was back to 180 prior to starting the plan. Well the scale surprised me this morning..176.4
OMG- I weighed myself like 3 times before I believed it.
I have less than 5 pounds before hitting my goal of 60 lbs GONE. I must admit I am scared. I know it sounds crazy to some people but I have lived this journey for almost 2 years. Getting on Spark tracking my food, blogging, and participating in challenges has become one of my social outlets. So when I reach goal what will I do?
I know what you are thinking- Is she crazy??? But is this kind of thinking that has caused me to self- sabotage in the past so I have to be honest with myself. So here are my options:
Keep Going: I am still in the overweight area of my BMI- BMI chart says I should be 159. Very many years ago I weighed 155 lbs- I was like 16! Although I was a smokin 155 and I really do not have desire to be at weight again. I made it to a size 10 and I am loving that. So I don't think I would go much pass my goal if I decided to push on- maybe 3 more pounds to get me to 169??
Focus on toning rather than weight loss: I just turned 38 and so with age and the weight loss there are some loose areas that need to be tighten up. I do plan on doing more toning workouts. This PT 24/7 is a big part of that. I also looked into some keattlebell workout DVD's
Encourage others: I plan on staying on SP to track something other than weight loss when I hit goal. I love the support I got from SP during my journey and plan to do that for others.
So I guess these are my next steps. Thanks for reading. About to change cause me & Billy got a date this morning- Cardio Burn
