..to whoever decides to read this...haha
As of yesterday I am down 20 lbs with Sparkpeople! I have to take the credit myself as I did the work but SP gives me the possibility to link to other people for support and motivation. Thx everyone!!
I did another detox this weekend and I can't say I gave it my 100%, I killed it on days 2 and 3. I did snack on a few things (day 3 there was a party) but I only allowed myself a bite of some stuff. So much for detoxing, haha. I did loose a total of 5 lbs from Fri-Mon but I am down 3.4 lbs from last weeks weigh in, and down a total of 20.6 lbs since the start and obviously now under 250 at 249.2. Progress is slow and steady.
I have to say I am very happy with my accomplishment although honestly I still see no difference. I think I can see it a little waist of my pants but one day they are big and the next day they feel the same, so much for that. Haha. People are noticing and I say thanks and don't give it too much thought. What did I look like 20 lbs ago? I hate when people say you look good, because it means you didn't look good before...or god forbid what happens if I was to ever get back to that weight (I am DONE and it will never happen but just for giggles)...do I not look good anymore?
Last night I tried on some old clothes that I saved in my closet, and 1 pair of jeans that I tried on a few weeks ago, I was actually able to pull it up and zipper..it was not a pretty site, I was hanging out everywhere but its something. The rest of the stuff, forget it, got a way to go for those to fit...and they are LB size 16 from back in the day. So old I don't remember even owning some of those clothes...oops.
I am still participating in the Biggest loser challenge with one more week to go and although I have not met my goal of 25 lbs I have gone down 12 in 11 weeks. And I am doing the awesome Rocky challenges (RED TEAM Rocks) which are a big help for boredom. Other than that the same old weight watchers although since I dropped some weight I am allowed less points, wish me luck...and I am doing about 6-8 exercise classes a week.
If I can do it (which I never thought possible) then YOU can do it...and it means I can continue to do it!
