Yes, I had another week hiatus. Why? Because, I'm sick. Again. Jesus Christ, what is with me this year? I haven't been this sick, ever. I don't know what's going on and I don't rightly care for it. It's one cold right after the other. However, I'm at the tale end of this cold so, that's good. I imagine that in a day or two I'll be 100%.
Well, let's get to the weigh-in.
Starting Weight: 350
Previous Weight: 290.2
Current Weight: 286.4
Total Loss: 63.6
I have to tell you, I'm pretty amazed. Granted, I haven't weighed in since the Sunday before Christmas. So, it's been two weeks. However, I literally haven't worked out in a week and I wasn't super strict about my calories this week because I've been sick and I have a hard time being good when I feel so bad. But, it's a loss and I'm going to take it and I'm going to move on from there. Pretty soon, each weigh-in is going to be a new low for me. I'm pretty sure when I graduated high school I was around 275. So, really, my adult weight has always been in these high numbers. I haven't weighed 285 since 2008. I'm pretty pumped for these all new lows. I'm really excited to see what my body looks like as I start to lose this weight. I don't have pictures, really. I just don't know. I'm going to photograph my body more and more in these coming months so that I never forget what I looked like at these weights so that I never come back here again.
Anyway, if you remember (which you probably don't) my goal was to be 287 by January 14th. Well, I kind of surpassed that already so I need new goals. By February 4th, I want to be 278.4. That's with a 2 pound loss every week. In the calendar on my phone, I've gone in a put in my goal weight for the next 4 weigh-ins, when that day comes I'm going to put the actual weight in as well. I got the calendar idea from @needtolose115 and just added my own little twist on it so that it's motivating for me. It's also a way for me to carry around my progress with me so that I know where I'm at all times. I can look back and see where I've been and how much I've tackled without having to rummage through my Xanga or MFP or Jillian Michaels. Yes, I track this on 3 different places--I'm insane.
Here's to healthy choices!
