Great news! I’m down a little more this week!
Starting weight: 252.4
Last weigh-in: 254.5
Total loss/gain: +1.6
Yeah, it’s only a 1/2 lb. But I’m happy with steady progress downward, in any form. And, as most ladies know, to lose weight at all, according to the scale, the day you start your monthly visit…well, that’s practically a miracle!
As hard as it was to give up Diet Coke, I have to say, I think it’s the best thing I’ve done lately. I rarely feel bloated or have food cravings as strongly as I would when I drank a lot of soda. And while I’ve only lost a couple pounds in the past couple weeks, I can see a difference in my face. I don’t know. Maybe the Diet Coke was making me poofy.
This week was a bit cray cray — I was sick Monday, celebrated my three-year anniversary with my man on Tuesday, helped plan a baby shower Wednesday, and played softball last night. So exercise? Yeah. Unfortunately that took a backseat. This weekend is a little busy too — Kelly Clarkson and The Fray concert tonight with a friend, then helping my BF’s sister-in-law do her baby registry tomorrow. But guess what’s wide open? Sunday! And Sunday there are several classes at my gym that I love. Plus, I love Sunday-morning runs. So I will be doing one or the other. I’ll get back at my regular gym visits/runs/etc. next week. Gotta get that physical activity up!
I’m feeling really good right now. I’m sticking to my Weight Watchers points and I just feel like I have my appetite under control and I can make better decisions for myself. Allow myself some treats, while reigning it in in other ways. Feels good to be in this place!
