Reflections

I

You see that? Do you see that number up there?  Do you know what that number means?  It means I could hardly freaking contain my excitement after weighing in at my meeting last night.  It means I finally hit the 10lb lost mark.  It means I got below that 155lbs wall.  And it means I’m currently at my lowest weight since…well, I don’t really know when. 

Commence the dance of joy.

The funny thing is this past week really wasn’t my best week ever.  I tracked everything, but most of it was “after the fact” tracking and a lot of it was educated guesses because I ended up eating out 5 out of 7 days last week! Going in to the week, I had no intention of eating out that much.  I had planned to go out for sushi with my family on Thursday and out for my friend Dan’s birthday on Sunday.  I did not plan to go out for dinner on Wednesday or Friday (before the Hawks games) or eat lunch out on Saturday.

Despite all the eating out, I was actually feeling pretty damn confident heading in to my weigh in this week.  I certainly wasn’t expecting to be a full 2lbs down and well below 155lbs, but I felt like a loss would definitely show up.  I was just feeling it.

Last week when I was up .4lbs (mostly due to bloating…thanks mother nature!), I commented to my leader about how I was getting frustrated because this seems to be the point where I hit a wall, and I just bounce up and down around 155lbs.  She suggested I make some sort of radical change this week, but honestly, short of going vegan, I didn’t really know what kind of radical change to make.  Apparently the secret to weight loss is eating out a lot?  I’m guessing that’s probably not the case, but maybe that was the radical change I needed for this week?

In any case, last night left me feeling really confident and I’m hopeful that I can continue the downward trend.  My next goal is to hit the 10% mark which is 6lbs away.  I’d love to hit that mark by the end of the month, but I think by Thanksgiving is more realistic with the way my weight loss has been going for the last month or so. 

Here are my goals for this week:

Limit eating out to 1 meal for the week: After last week I feel like I need a restaurant detox.  I’m sure we’ll likely go out once (and I have a bachelorette party Saturday night which may end up with eating out)

Keep my points in check on Saturday I want to keep track of points as the night goes on rather than going back Sunday morning and piecing it all together.

  1. Awesome job, again!!! You are on fire, girl! Keep up the fab work.

    Gotta love how weird our bodies are. Sometimes I guess we REALLY do just need some type of change. Way to go!
