I think it’s pretty fitting that today marks the 10th Edition of Weigh-In Wednesday because I’ve officially lost 10 pounds!
Today’s Weigh-In: down 2 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 10 pounds
Even though I set out to lose 2 pounds per week and on average I’ve only lost 1 pound per week, I’m still proud!
This has not been easy for me as I’m sure you’ve gathered over the past 10 posts. It’s been a roller coaster of cheating and then buckling down, succeeding on weekdays only to fall apart during the weekend and feeling tempted to give up.
But I’ve continued to stick with it!
Getting a second chance last week helped me to keep going when it felt like I was about to give up. Then, on Saturday night, I hung out with my friend Marie who suggested that we keep each other accountable and race to lose 10lbs. We weren’t able to determine a suitable (non-expensive) prize, but knowing that I’m racing her has been such a motivator for me to kick it into overdrive.
I’ve certainly been tempted since Saturday, but every time I think about overindulging, I think of Marie and how much I want to win and I resist! Who knew I was so competitive? ;)
Then, on Monday night, I hung out with my friend Bonnie who’s lost over 20lbs by tracking calories with LoseIt and exercising. She looks amazing and seriously inspired me to stick with it so that I can see the kind of success she’s seeing. She didn’t even eat a whole donut when she went to the cider mill last week…that’s hard core! I’m going this week and am going to budget for 1 or 2 donuts (at 300+ calories a pop I’m gonna have to seriously budget!) and I’ll think of Bonnie’s discipline to hopefully keep me on track.
Anywho, I’m getting ready to face another week and I’m hoping to drop another 2 LB’s, so I’ll meet you back here next week to let you know what happens!
