Holding strong after week 1
Sunday, May 05, 2013
I know it's only been a week and I could look at it like that, but I'd rather look at it like this: It has been a WHOLE week and I've done it! I've stayed within my calories, worked out the right amount (if not a little more) and planned for every single day to ensure success. And I had success. On April 27th I weighed myself in at 79kg, my heaviest ever. A week in on the 4th of May I weighed in at 75kg. A bit surprising to lose 4kg in a week and I reckon I may not have a big loss this week, but what the scale says is what it says. My goal is to stay at 75kg or drop to 74 by week's end. I'm sure a lot of what I lost was water weight and I was also sick for two days so my husband thinks that may have had an impact. Regardless, it was nice to see a drop....I would have been happy with 1 kg.
So anyway, I'm on a role and determined to make week number 2 as successful. That was my issue in the past, I failed to look at the journey as 1 day or 1 week at a time and wanted instant results. The minute I didn't feel like I was getting results I gave up. This almost happened this week when I felt that I was working hard but not "getting skinny". I had to remind myself that the "getting skinny" part won't happen overnight. And in doing so I had a great week!
Anyway, I do hope to have another positive thing to say NEXT week on May 11th!!! Wish me luck!
