Goal met... no, well Not sure... lol

Friday, August 31, 2012

Ok so my goal was to lose 5 lbs this month, I am not sure if it was accomplished or not since my scale went crazy on me. This morning I hopped on and it read 208.2, emoticon emoticon, that was me both excited and amazed, I decided i needed to make sure so there I go on again, and the darn scale mocked me! I literally wanted to throw it out the window! It read 211.2! Then 210, 211, 209.8! So which one is it?

I began the month at 212 so even if it was 208 this morning, i still didn't meet my goal, but thats alright only I know what was going on that derailed me, and I am not using it as an excuse, i am using it as something I learned. This new month my goal is the same, loose 5 lbs and no not the same 5 lbs lol, loose another 5 lbs. This really has thrown me back on my schedule to loose 20-40 lbs by my bday but thats ok, I had already made up my mind that if it were only 21 lbs lost I would be very happy!

I am working on my positives so the positives from this month were:

Worked out for more than 30 mins 18/28 days
Was able to mix walking and Zumba
Had not only one work out partner but 3
Have been able to cook my own breakfast and lunch most of the month, no eating out!
My size 16 non stretch jeans are starting to feel loose! I can almost see my new jeans in a smaller size!
I donated more than half my clothes to goodwill, they no longer fit, they were too big!

So even though I didn't meet my goal I am still rewarding myself this weekend. I am in the hunt for new books to read, might get the third book on The Girl with the Dragon tattoo trilogy and go out for coffee with a few friends.

    Well, well, well.

    I have had my stupid scale do that to me too! I had to wait for it to turn off automatically and reset. Then I had a better answer.

    It's good to know that you are getting there! Lose fitting jeans. Too big clothes! Amazing!

    Keep it up. I'm glad you had 3 work out buddies. That makes it better. Mixes it up a bit.

    good for weren't hard on yourself, but you also identified the root of the problem. Awesome weight loss, by the way! (even if it wasn't the exact number you were looking for)

    Love the Dragon Tattoo books!!!

    Happy short week :)
