I seem to get just as nervous every time I step on the scale as I did the first time I decided I was going to do this. Seriously, I spike my blood pressure and gotta calm my shit down before I do it. Holding in all that negative usually results in a negative result so I try really hard to get all of that out of my head beforehand. It’s a silly game that will someday end, I hope.
That being said, let’s get to the weigh-in:
Starting Weight Feb 2014: 261.2lbs
Weight Last Week: 216.9lbs
Today’s Weight: 214.9lbs
Weekly Loss: 2.0lbs
Total Loss: 46.3lbs
Now, onto measurements. I haven’t done any since July 15. I don’t have my starting numbers or last measurements numbers up, but I did write my current as of today, next to the name of the area. I wrote myself a little chart on a small pad of paper so, I’m just gonna post that. 🙂
I’m pleased with my weight loss, an even 2lbs feels pretty good. I also can’t believe I am so close to having shed 50lbs. Even moreso, ONEderland is in 15lbs. What the? HEYOOOO. I actually don’t like the phrase “onederland” but I think the aesthetics of the word mess with my head.
I am also pretty happy with my measurements. I wasn’t upset about gaining in my arms because I’ve really been working them and my back. I also measures under my bust today as my sister pointed I should be doing. I felt like a dummy when she explained it. Haha. I am vanity-upset about my lack of overall progress on my thighs. My family has pretty meaty legs anyway, but come on! Ah, whatever. July was definitely more of a cardio and flexibility month. So, not a loss!
I feel pretty good. Soon I will be 6 months into this and I’ve hit very little real physical roadblocks; some muscle pulls here and there, a couple plateaus but nothing too major, yet. Most of my roadblocks are in my head, emotional and mental. It’s a process, gotta remind myself
Next goal is 210.
I feel fortunate to have been focused like I have and I hope to continue to keep it up. 🙂
