So this week was a little better for me mentally. I was able to get my head on a little straighter and that makes a difference. My back is still bothering me, but there are good days and not so good days where that is concerned. Psychologically, it always helps to have a loss for the week.
Weight : 209.2
Loss : 1.6
Total : 110.8 (NOTE TO SELF: was 108.0 but since I adjusted my ticker a little, I needed
to make the same adjustment here on my blog post) Why did you read
this, it was a note to myself!
It feels good to be back on the losing side of things, at least as far as weight goes.
I have changed my ticker, not drastically, but a change none the less. I moved my starting weight up from 317 to 320. The reason being two fold; one, 317 was my initial weigh in for the biggest loser challenge that I did back in May 2011, but a couple days before that I did see 320 on my scale at home. Since I had already decided to start losing weight when I saw the 320, it makes sense for that to be my actual starting weight. Second is the fact that 320 is a more pleasing number than 317 both in how it looks and how it sounds.
Now, with moving my starting weight to 320 and having set a goal to lose 110 lbs it would seem that I'm cheating and could move my goal from 207 to 210 and I could celebrate for hitting my goal, woohoo!! BUT, In fairness to the game, I moved my goal weight down from 207 to 205. So now instead of losing 110 lbs, I need to lose 115 lbs to meet my goal. I have lengthened the playing field, moved the goal line a bit.
So I have not really made it any easier on myself to reach my goal, but I have made the whole thing more aesthetically pleasing to myself, which I like.
Ok, I'm a little busy so I'm going to end this blog right here.
