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!

    Good luck! You have the right attitude! Remember that most people who are successful weight losers say that CONSISTENCY is what helped them lose weight. So, you are right, you HAVE finished a whole week - and more to come! emoticon

    Good luck on week 2!
