Week 2 - Day 14

Sunday, November 03, 2013

Wow, I can't believe I've actually stuck with this for two full weeks and heading into the third. I am amazing myself!

Yesterday was a really good day. I was spot on with all my meals and I did 15 minutes on the treadmill even though I really didn't want to, so I met my minimum 10 minutes of exercise goal. I drank over 8 glasses of water. I slept about 8 hours for the second night in a row.

Tomorrow morning is my weekly weigh in. I know I have lost something, whether or not it shows up on the scales. I can feel the difference in my clothes. Usually when I lose a few pounds it comes straight off my belly and butt. I notice first that my jeans are sagging in the rear and I need a belt to cinch the waist in place. My jeans are sagging but I've noticed also that my sweaters and hoodies are baggier and looser around the shoulder area. My bras are fitting differently.

I didn't take measurements when I started. I didn't weigh myself either, just guessed what I probably was, weighed in after week one and I was the weight I had guessed. I don't really believe in the numbers. Well no, that's not exactly right, I do believe in the numbers, the numbers don't lie, but I just don't want to set myself up to be in a place where I'm obsessed by the numbers and prone to being discouraged by them.

I'm encouraged by how my clothes fit. I will weigh in tomorrow and be surprised if I haven't lost anything, but not discouraged because something is definitely happening, my clothes don't lie either.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Enjoy your Sunday!

    emoticon on your two-week streak! So awesome.

    I get a little number-obsessed sometimes and have to be really vigilant about self-talk: encouraging myself, thinking about the progress I have made, etc., rather than focusing on how slowly the scale moves.

    Sounds like you are seeing some great results with your looser clothes, so I agree that the scale number just ain't that important and you shouldn't let it get you down if it's not what you're hoping for. You are DOING THIS!
