My Weight is Down, My Weight is Down!!!

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

This is huge!! I weighed in at 134. lbs this morning!! My weight has not been down this low in so long that I can't even remember. I am still 2.9 lbs away from my goal weight, but for the first time this year - that number actually looks reachable. So why all the sudden am I having this weight loss?? could be a low grade depression due to the loss of my dog that has me not eating as much, but I think it is something else. I realized that drinking alcohol - yes, even one glass - increased my anxiety and caused me to toss and turn all night. So....I have worked really hard to cut alcohol out of my intake. I have also started meditating each day for 15 minutes. I truly believe that the meditation has worked wonders for me. Well.....putting it all together (along with eating well and trying to get in my 10,000 walking steps a day and 30 minute weight workouts at least 4 days a week has gotten me this far. My true goal weight is possible by the end of the year!!!!! Woo-hoo!! Wow - it feels great!!

    I'm glad things are coming together. Grief over a loss is an important process. It takes us out of our routines for a little while. A few small changes can combine to have a big impact.

    Big warm hugs and congrats on the scale moving down again. Isnt it a fantastic feeling.

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your furry friend. It is always such a sad time to lose a beloved pet.

    Perhaps it is the meditation also. The reason I say this is I was stuck on a plateau for a long time and could not seem to budge, and I too have lost 4lb this month. I never thought of the connection.
