If you are a Biggest Loser fan you’ll know what I’m talking about. (It could very well be from other places too, but that is where I know it from.) It means that my weight finally starts with a ONE.
199.8 <– This is the number I've seen the past two mornings!
I'M UNDER 200lbs!!! WOOT!!
I needed this. I really needed to hit this milestone after struggling so much to get back on track. It reenforces that what I am doing is working. Even though it is slow going and a lot of the time I just don't want to. IT'S WORKING. And it will continue to work as long as I stick with it. There isn't any secret to weight loss. It's about eating well (and the right amount) and working out. Calories in vs. calories out. Figuring out what YOUR ratio is, is the difficult part. Making sustainable life changes is the only way to keep the weight off, and that isn't easy especially with the way our culture has become, but I know it's the only way I'm not going to end up back here.
I'm so happy to be checking that goal off my list. It's been a great week. I've been tracking my food and staying within my calorie limit. In my effort to get back on track with my weight loss I've been making sure that I workout no less than every-other day. I'd love to say that I'm going to workout an hour a day 6 days a week, but I know myself better than that. Setting a schedule I know I can stick to and remain consistent with is far more effective than getting discouraged and quitting by setting unrealistic goals and failing to meet them.
This week: -3.2 lbs (!)
Total loss -14.2 lbs
Matt is refusing to get on the scale at this point so I don't have any numbers for him. He is still where I was a couple of weeks ago. He is trying to get back at it and start being diligent about it again but he might need a few "encouraging" words. ;)
