Weigh Loss Journey
Saturday was my big, big day to really push myself physically. I sat a goal of 15000 steps. Yesterday was amazing, challenging, and absolutely fun. This new lifestyle has been full of surprises. I am able to run 1/4 of a mile now. I can’t believe it. I am working up to a 1/2 miles now. I can jog in place for almost 10 minutes. However, I don’t think it’s the same as actually running on pavement, and the feeling of the jolt to your bones, especially on my bad leg. I am so proud of myself.
Yesterday, my goal was just to keep up with the bike:
This is how I finished for the entire day:
I am getting stronger! I am getting stronger and so much better! I am just so grateful and thankful. I hope this really helps and enlightens somebody else’s life. It’s not a smooth or perfect journey, but it’s a journey, and it’s HAPPENING!!
I lost 1 pound this week, with 1 1/4 inches less in my waist!!! I’ll take it! Last week, I lost 2.2 lbs! This put me at a at total of 29.4 pounds lost, and .6 pound from my 20 pound goal. I have lost almost 7.5 inches from my waist.
I actually own a little black dress, which I thought I would never show enough interest in. I put it on this weekend, and I looked and felt fantastic. I have much more to do; I am not delusional, but I can keep dancing and enjoying my small victories, all the way to the finish line!
Twice, in two weeks, initially, it appeared I had gained, and not lost. I would weigh in again in the afternoon, and both times the number has been less. Water weight can fool you. I have grown accustom to its tricky ways, and now during my weekly weigh in, I am not discourage, especially if I am only seeing less than a pound weight gain. I know that if I see an increase of 2 or 3 lbs, then I can rest assure that I gained from whatever I had eaten, and will need to do some tweaking.
There are a lot of people, in my life, working on their weight, and some are moving faster than me. I have done well, thus far, not to become discourage or drift into someone else’s life and goals. I am staying my course, and I am glad in it. There are times, we get so distracted with what someone else is doing that we lose focus of our own agenda.
So I say:
- Identify what you need to change
- Create a plan of action
- Focus on what works for you
- Live your plan
