Almost Half Way There!!

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

So, today is not my official weigh-in day, but I am a daily weigher. I know, I know, I shouldn't be (although some research says it's a good idea) but I do it to help keep myself on track for the week. See, I have a habit of starting the week out great and then getting tired and lazy about Wednesday and not finishing out the week so good. SO, I get on the scale every morning just to make sure I stay on track the WHOLE week.

I've been having trouble staying on track over the last few months and since January 1st have only lost 5 lbs., 3 of which I gained back in Feb/March. For the last 3 weeks I have been refocused and really working out hard, but my eating has been a bit off. But this week I have been on target with exercise and nutrition every day. For my official weigh-in last week I was at 159. Good, but still not down to 157 like I was sometime back in March. I felt good this morning and was optimistic about stepping on the scale, hoping to be back at 157. I stepped on and waited for it to adjust and then looked down and saw 156! What?!?!?! That was WAAAYYY better than I had hoped for!!

I never really knew (or just don't remember) what I actually weighed when I graduated high school, but I think it was about 10 lbs. less than my current weight. I have been trying to lose weight since my mid-twenties and I have NEVER seen 156 on that scale. So, I couldn't resist entering the weight into my ticker on SP. I am only 2 lbs. away from being at my half-way mark and I wanted to MAKE SURE that I stay on track for the rest of the week and will hopefully get down to 155.

Now, I'm going to go do a little happy dance and then get back to my homework...
