I've got to admit that I am kind of glad to end cycle 3 tomorrow. I have not done very well because I have not held myself accountable and haven't used will power as I should. I plan to weigh in the morning and measure if time permits. That will give me my ending cycle 3 numbers and beginning of round 2 numbers. It is crazy to think I have about 10 pounds or so to go before goal weight. That is crazy to think! It is funny how your body carries weight differently as I age. Looking at myself I would think that I have more than 10 pounds to lose, but my tummy is so different after having two kids and gaining so much weight with them. I am not sure where I am t because I feel like I my have gained a pound or two on cycle 3 just because I was sooo lenient. It was not successful because my efforts weren't 100 % committed. Next round, I must commit and stay the course.
Tomorrow I get to go pick up my pup. I adopted a puppy from a shelter. She is 6 weeks I think and I haven't met her yet, only seen pics online as her shelter is an hour away. I hope she is everything I have in my head! She is my reward for losing the weight and making my health a priority. I am proud of myself. I have wanted a puppy for a long time. I have learned through this process that if you want something bad enough, then you should only rely on yourself to make it happen. I have done that with my weight loss and I did that with my pup. I am super excited and can't wait for tomorrow's school day to be over so that I can get the kids and go meet the puppy.
Then Wednesday, I am off to cycle 1 again. I better read up and get ready!
