Almost to first mini-goal!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

So about a month ago I was 188 and for a few weeks I've been fluctuating 184-183. Today I stepped on the scale...182! I know it's not much but I can't help but celebrate. It has been weeks since I had seen a number other than the 184-183 scale and I hope that means I'm back on a weight-loss track!

One of my mini-goals is to hit 180 and to be honest, I may cry from joy for hitting that mark. I have been this size for months and to finally be saying goodbye to this weight is such a relief. But not time to celebrate too much just yet, I have two more pounds to go before I hit my goal and I want to stay motivated to reach all my goals.

Since I couldn't make it to the gym yesterday, I spent about half an hour doing some exercises with my dumbbells and then finished with trying the plank for the first time. Even though it wasn't a full gym workout, I felt refreshed and proud for spending that time for myself. Being a stay at home mom, I spend most of my time with my toddler, Iris, and when I can take half an hour to myself, it is a much welcome respite.

Anyway, today is a new day and a gym trip will be in order a little later on. Maybe this time next week, I may be even less than 180! Wouldn't that be awesome?!

    I know, right! When I started getting into fitness I was so depressed that I wasn't just melting off everything like you see or hear in fitness ads or tv!

    Thank you for the support!! You will be, we're in this together!

    These weight loss shows on TV make you think that it is easy to lose 8, 10, 15 pounds a week. In reality, 1 to 2 pounds a week is great! That is my goal and that is an average. One week I lose, one week I stay the long as you average out with a loss, you are doing great!
    If you feel good.....that is half the battle! Stay strong!
    I would love to be down in the 180's....I will be some day soon.
