Weekly Weigh In : Entered the 140 ‘s

Posted by Susan on April 25, 2009

I knew this would happen sooner or later . I’ve been trying to mentally prepare myself for it for weeks now . I have been so spoiled with ” big ” losses in weight . I’ve been dropping 2-3 lbs. a week now steadily , But I knew that the last 10 lbs would go much slower , and I was correct ! This week I lost 1 lb. I am not disappointed in the loss , I understand the last 10 lbs. are the toughest always so I am happy I lost anything at all .
The good news is that my Fat % and BMI have dropped pretty significantly , most probably due to the extra HIIT I did this week . I replaced some of my SS cardio with HIIT and I lost fat , and that makes me very happy ! Here are my sats for this week :
Weight : 149.6 (- 1 lb. )
Fat % : 33.4 ( – 0.5 % )
BMI : 22.3 ( – 0.1 )
All and all I am satisfied with this week ‘s progress . I am a size 8, a size I haven’t been since I was in my teens , and I am in the 140’s , ( just barely , but still ! ). I would call this a sucessful week and definately something to be proud of . I don’t care how long it takes for me to lose this last 10 lbs. as long as it comes off !!!
Today , is supposed to be sunny and in the mid 80’s here in Connecticut , so I cleaned the house last night , started laundry at 5 am this morning and I am planning on spending the day cleaning the yard and getting things transplanted . We have a lot of plans for the yard this year and it is time to prepare for them . Yard work always leaves me sore and tired so I count it as a workout !
Later today I plan on posting my progess pics that span from the very begining of this journey , to now. I am nervous about it , but feel it is time to put it all out there and look at where I’ve been , and how far I’ve come ! I am excited about it , but at the same time I am not . It is hard to show people your lowest of low times and feel comfortable with it. It’s ok though , it is time to break out of the comfort zone, it helps in putting things in perspective . Sometimes when I look at myself I still see the ” Fat Me ” . My husband always tells me that I look at myself with my Fat Goggles on. I am hoping this progress posting will help me see more clearly .
Have a Happy Saturday everyone !

    Congratulations! After I started eating right and exercising on a regular basis, I went from a size 6 to a 4. I’ve maintained and feel that I’m at a healthy weight. Making the right food selections and getting that heart rate up makes us feel healthier and look healthier! Woo!
