Wednesday Weigh-In

Wow! I cannot believe it has already been 6 weeks since I started this little weekly weigh in series! The time has gone by really fast! Thank you to all of you for your continued support and love, it means the world! 

So when I first told y'all of my plans to run a 5K I weighed in at 205 pounds! My weight loss has been slow going but I'm right on track. Today, I'm weighing in at:

After gaining weight last week I came back with a vengeance! I lost 2.2 pounds this week which puts me down a total of 7.4 pounds!! I'm only 2.6 pounds away from my first 10 pound goal! This is HUGE for me!! Some of you said that maybe my little gain last week was exactly what I needed to kick me into high gear. I wouldn't go so far to say that I went into "high gear" but I definitely got my crap together this week. So, you were RIGHT. It helped!

I concentrated this week on eating better, eating less and being more active. It worked. Imagine that! I'm headed to the grocery store right after I finish this post to stock up on fruits and veggies for the next week or so. When I get home I will start preparing some of them. I find it easier to make good food choices if those choices are convenient and already prepared. So I'll spend a little time steaming veggies and cutting up and storing fruit for easy access.

So for the next two weeks my goal is to drop the 2.6 pounds needed to make my first 10 pound goal. I'd like to think I could do it in just one week, but I don't want to get my hopes up and end up disappointed in myself. I keep trying to remind myself that slow and steady wins the race.

And now, a little inspiration:

I hope you all had a successful week! Remember, we're in this together!
