Weekly Weigh In :

Posted by Susan on May 16, 2009

Today is a big day for me . It marks the lowest weight I have been in over 8 years of dieting and working out ! I could not believe the number my eyes were seeing this morning ! I am so happy , but I am also almost in shock ! I guess the extra cardio I’ve added on the weekends is definately paying off . I’ve also added about 100 calories to my diet and that seems to have made the scale start to move again .

I am offically 5lbs away from my goal weight of 140 lbs . I can’t believe that I will be at my goal (hopefully) by summer ! I am completely amazed ! I have wanted this for so long and here it is, 5 small pounds away !!!!!

Here are my stats for this week :

Weight : 145.0 lbs. ( 2.6 lb. Loss !!!! )
Fat % : 31.8 ( 0.7 Loss )
BMI : 21.6 (0.4 Loss )

I am definately feeling motivated ! Off to do my Saturday morning Cardio !!!!

Weekly Weigh In :

Posted by Susan on May 9, 2009

I am happy with today’s weigh in . I lost 1.4 lbs. !!! That makes me 6.6 lbs away from my Ultimate Goal Weight !!!! I have never ever been this close to my goal weight ever . I am excited . I have a full day planned , but I am going to squeeze some extra cardio into today somehow . I am really motivated now .

I upped my calories this week by alittle this week with the hopes it would make the scale move , I am not sure if that is what helped this week’s weigh in . I also did an extra day of cardio . Maybe it was the combination of the two , or maybe it just happened . Whatever the reason I am happy with it ! I was hoping to be maintaining by the first week in June when my husband and I are off for the week . I am not sure that will happen , but I am sure it will be soon after . The thought of maintaining my weight loss scares me to death ! I am sure it is about balence , smart eating , and planning . I think ( hope ) I am up for it !

This weekend is a busy one , as always . So many things I want to get done ! Hopefully I will get to it all !

Here are my stats for this week :

Weight : 147.6 ( 1.4 lb. loss ! )

Fat % : 32.5 (0.6 loss )

BMI : 22.0 ( 0.2 loss )

*** I did an extra 60 min. of cardio this morning ! Got it out of the way !
