Monthly Weigh In - goodbye 100kg forever!!

Saturday, July 03, 2010

I lost 3.2kg (8lbs) in the past month!! Bringing my total weight loss to 18.2kg (40lbs). Which is pretty damn good considering I`ve been struggling the past couple of weeks due to exam stress.

But this also means I am now UNDER 100kgs (220lbs). It`s been quite a few years since that happened, I remember being dismayed when I first saw that, thought I should really be doing something about it and well...5 years later I`m finally out of it.

But it also makes me think I can be eating at the top of my cal range, for as well as my running (not missed a session in 11 weeks!) I`m also a pretty active person, walking and cycling everywhere, and maybe I just need the cals esp with the weather being so hot I can feel my energy flagging.

My measurements are going down, this month it`s a few cm off my hips and one of my waist. And none on my arms or thighs and a little on my calfs. Isn`t it strange how some months you loose more in some areas and not in others?

Today is also exam day, which I`m pretty sure I`m going to fail but who knows maybe I`ll get lucky. Not helped that I woke up with swollen tonsils yesterday, I rushed out to get meds from my doctor cos I coudn`t even easilly. Just want to get it over with now my brain is so crammed to the point of overload! But if I can lose weight then I can pass that exam one day!!

    Awesome job! Don't let up, though. The enemy of excellence isn't failure - it's allowing ourselves to strive for less than the best. You can do it!

    And get some rest. You don't want to lose all that weight just by being sick. It's cheating ;)

    First of all CONGRATULATIONS on your great weight loss!

    Secondly, GOOD LUCK on your exam!

    Thirdly, as far as eating at the top of your calorie range goes, I would be careful with just jumping into it. Especially if you've been eating closer to the low end of your calorie range. I'm in the same conundrum, where I believe my increase in exercise has made my body go into a "starvation" mode of sorts. Instead of just assuming I can eat ALL of my calories (or activity points in my case, as I'm doing Weight Watchers) every day, I'm gradually adding a point or two each week to see how the scale reacts. I'd hate to raise my points (calories) too high and then end up having the opposite effect.

    I hope you find the right balance for you. And I hope you succeed in everything you put your mind to! Good luck!
