Below 250

Saturday, March 27, 2010

I think through 2008 and the beginning of 2009 when I first started this, at one point I got down to about 240 lbs. I quickly gained that back over the past year and was only 10 lbs. shy of my HEAVIEST weight (266). Since starting back up again, I have been feeling so amazing, as I've said before.

Last Saturday when I weighed myself, I was honestly shocked to see that I'd lost 4 lbs. in 7 days and at first was doubting whether the scale weighed me properly or not. I thought maybe it was the clothes I was wearing between the last time I weighed myself and now, etc. etc. but after weighing myself this morning, I finally accept it. Between last Saturday and today, I have lost another 3 lbs. 248 on the scale. I even stepped off, did a few things (checked my email, facebook, blah blah) and about 15 minutes later, went back and weighed myself again... nope, still 248. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!! I am SO excited.

I didn't work out yesterday :(. Man, I could not get up yesterday morning for the life of me! I ended up sleeping until like 7:15! Then, Bart and I had a date planned for last night (Alice in Wonderland!) so I didn't work out after work either. On top of that, we went to Red Robin for dinner and although I tried to make good choices, my dinner ended up being about 800 calories, which isn't TOO horrible, but I went over my daily calories by about 250 calories :(. That's ok though. That rarely happens and I the scale still said I lost 3 lbs this morning!

I just got done with my workout for today, now I have some running around to do. Gotta go grocery shopping, which I figure will burn some extra calories walking around the store. HAHAHA I think it's funny that almost everywhere I go now, I think about calories being burned. :p Speaking of which, I better get in the shower and go!! :)

    emoticon Great news on the weightloss. Sometimes the scale is a nice surprise.

    When you go shopping, be sure to park at the outer edge of the parking lot. Not only will you get fewer 'door dings' from other cars---Just think of all the calories you will burn running across the Parking Lot.

    emoticon It is amazing what those numbers on the the scale can make you feel. Each lost of one or three in your case can really make your day or even week. And also give you motivation to keep making that number smaller. emoticon
