I know I had a gain last week (I knew it was all water!), but I did not expect results like this. I honestly cried on the scale this morning.
- Starting Weight: 353.4 lbs
- Last Week: 304.4 lbs
- Current Week: 297.0 lbs
- This week’s change: -7.4 lbs
- Change overall: -56.4 lbs
297.0!! 2!!! 2!!!!!! Though my results from week to week have been spectacular, I don’t think I really thought I would make it out of the 3’s. Even though my 15% goal was 300.4, that really wasn’t the goal that I was really excited about hitting (even though I set it as my haircut reward goal!). This is such an emotional milestone for me. For some reason, everything seems so much more attainable now that I have broken through that invisible wall.
Do you know the other major significance in losing 7.4 pounds this week? That’s 0.2 more than I lost in the entire MONTH of October.
I know I said it 5 years ago, but I am NEVER going back to weighing over 300 pounds again. This time, I mean it, and I have all of you to help hold me accountable. I know that I might not always be skinny or that I might never have a BMI in my “healthy” range, but I will never allow myself to weigh more than 300 pounds ever again. That is a reasonable goal.
Speaking of reasonable goals, my next small goal is 20% or 282.7 pounds. My next BIG goal is 229.9. That’s another one of those significant , personal milestones. 230 has been my lowest adult weight, and I have this big mental block about actually getting below that. I will tackle that when the time comes. For now, I’m focusing on how much I feel like a total rockstar for completing these workouts that would have totally intimidated me 3 months ago, and I’m totally amazed at how much better my knees feel, and how much more I move in general. I can sometimes do stairs like a normal person without hobbling! Instead of asking my husband to bring me more water on his way back from the kitchen, I get up and get it myself (most of the time)!
Why was this week so successful? 21 Day Fix workouts. I didn’t do all of them. I subbed in one of my own favorite yoga routines instead of the Pilates fix, and I was sick on Friday and Saturday, so I rested. But, I worked out 5 days last week. 5 days! I think that’s more than enough, considering I don’t always hit my weekly goal of 3 times.
My food was on the money last week too. I held up my goal of NO PIZZA, even when I didn’t feel like cooking.
Tell me about your week!
