Another Pound Lost

Friday, March 12, 2010

Well, today was my official "personal weigh-in day". I was really hoping to have lost 2 pounds this week, based on extra hours of exercise, etc etc. HOWEVER, I'd lost 2 pounds the week before, so maybe having only lost 1 pounds this week - just maybe that will set me up to keep on going down the next week.

I am not burned out, so hopefully, I can continue to exercise, eat right, drink that water, & stay motivated. Losing only one pound is so much better than losing ZERO or worse yet, better than GAINING ! SO - I'll take it, and run with it (literally!!).

I actually started this losing-thing at the weight of 178 - a few days after Christmas. It felt good to break out of the 170's, then to break out of the 160's & to now be in the 150's. At 156 now, I'm hoping to reach that mid-way point of 155 by next Friday. It's been a while since I have seen that weight, and I can honestly say that my clothes are fitting better and I feel so much more energy, and trivial things don't seem to bother me at all. It's such a high - I wish that everyone who is overweight could get on this "wagon" - it's the best...

    If you are doing any body strength exercises, emoticon you are gaining muscle mass so your pounds may not drop off like you'd hope, BUT, you're clothe are fitting differently and better, right?
