Weekly Weigh In : GOAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Susan on May 30, 2009

I did it ! Can you beleive it ???????? I hit it exactly ! I lost 2.6 lbs. this week making me 140 lbs. It is early Saturday morning and I am slightly in shock but extremely happy all the same !!!!
Wow ! I have been working on this since I got engaged in 2006. At the time it seemed like every pound I lost was just a drop in the bucket …….. a gigantic bucket ! I struggled , I made mistakes , I stopped and started, for 3 years. It wasn’t until the begining of this year, 2009, that I “got it” ! Finally ! Now I am doing a workout I love , and eating food , and not depriving myself , and everything has changed !
I know this sounds dramatic , but losing this weight has completely changed who I am . For the better ! I feel a shift in , not only my body, but my mind. I am different, and I like it !
Now I enter the next stage of my journey……..maintaining my weight and living my life using all the tools I’ve gained in these past 3-4 years . I feel as though I know what works , and what does not work for me. I feel differently toward food and exercise.
On to a whole new adventure ! I am up for it, and I plan on making it work !!! Here are my Goal sats for this week :
Weight : 140.0 (2.6 lbs.- Loss !!!!!!)
Fat % : 30.5 ( 30.5 – Loss )
BMI : 20.8 (o.4 – Loss )
Stay tuned as I figure out maintainance ! I am sure I will experience tons of ups and downs , because I have literally never done it before ! As of today (and for the next 2 weeks ) I am adding 200 calories to my daily total. That will bring me up to 1700 calories per day . It is kind of scarey , but I am just experimenting here. These calories will not be cake and cookie calories !!!! ( I wish !) They will be healthy calories in the form of fruit , veggies, whole grains, and protien. I will continue my workout programs 0f circuit training, SS cardio and HIIT mixed, and active rest days. Let’s see what happens !
