Looking back

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Sometimes it's a good thing to look back, it can really help motivate you.

I printed off a report that shows my weigh ins over time. From February 18th to March 5th I gained 9lbs!! I started my blood pressure medication, thyroid pills, and birth control during that time period so I know that's what caused such a rapid gain, well I weighed in this morning and I have lost 6 of the 9lbs I gained!! Yay!
I'm so happy. I've changed medicines and I've gotten back on track with my exercise and I hope to continue to see the scale move in a steady downward motion.
I went in and adjusted my starting weight on my tracker from 255 to the 264 that was my highest weight with the 9lbs gained. That way now when I go to my start page it shows I lost 6lbs. It might sorta seem like cheating but I don't really think so because I did get up that high and I have lost the weight, and that 6lbs now motivates me to make it 10lbs by the end of March.
Anyway, I just need to post that I'm super happy about all this and I can't wait to weigh in again on Monday! Have a great day all! emoticon

    You do what you think is right. Why not change your weight? It was your highest weight either way. So what if it had to do with medication? If it helps to motivate you, then more power to you! :) Keep working hard!
