Sunday is weigh in day...

Sunday, April 29, 2012

I may weigh myself at other points in the week, but Sunday morning is my official "weigh in day". The day where I actually write down the scale results and compare the number to other previous Sundays.

I have found that knowing I am accountable Sunday morning, sometimes helps me make better choices on a Saturday night.

In the past 7 weeks, the scale has progressively shown smaller numbers. (except for one week, which I think had to do with water retention from the monthly lady time).

3/8/12: 240
3/25/12: 234
4/1/12: 232
4/8/12: 230 *10 POUNDS*
4/15/12: 226
4/22/12: 227
4/29/12: 224

In total, I have lost 16 pounds! This is darn exciting to me and at one time it felt like a goal I could not achieve. However, by focusing on good choices around food and exercise one day at at time, and logging everything in SP each week I have had small, progressive losses which are adding up over time. That said, there is a long way to go. This is so much more a marathon than a sprint- and the beginning of a whole new me!

And now, to keep up the small changes that I have made (and enjoy) to continue to build on this success!

Thank you, Spark Friends for the support and encouragement on this journey.

    Congratulations! You are doing an awesome job! I like your idea for having weigh-ins on Sundays -- the weekends are when I tend to lose a little momentum, maybe I'll try that!
