Back Where I Belong
Wednesday, October 06, 2010
When I saw 202 and a few ounces last week, I was so excited. Not only has my weight been steadily decreasing, I am almost out of the 200's. When the number on the scale went up, I was upset. Even though I knew it was not fat I hated seeing the numbers go up after working so hard. So I am finally back where I belong. This morning the scale said 202.0 so I am down a few ounces from last week and well on my way. I was very happy to get to report a loss, even a small one, for my team on the Biggest Loser Challenge.
I am very close to my big goal of being under 200. I really think I am sabatoging it though. I get so close and slow down. This week I am pushing it. Working hard to hit that goal that I have been looking forward to since the beginning of this journey. Although I still have a few pounds to go, I am looking ahead to my next goal. The half-way point for me is 188.5 so that is my next goal.
This week has been so full of ups and downs. I have been stressed and tired. My body aches and sometimes I just want to quit. But then I think about showing up at my sister's wedding having done the impossible. I have lost 60 pounds. I have fought hard and pushed myself more than I ever thought possible. I will be running a 5K in two weeks! Nothing is impossible.
Have a great Wednesday!
