Happy With Nothing

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

I put my weigh-in off this week. I was so scared to see the damage that had been done. With all of the stress of travel and my sister's wedding, I ate things that I knew I shouldn't have. I felt horrible and bloated when I got home. So I ate right, drank my water, and worked out for a couple of days before getting on the scale. Today was the last day to get my weight in for the Biggest Loser 15 Challenge so I had to get on the scale. To my relief, it showed no gain. No loss either, but at least there was no gain.

I continue to sit right on the 200 pound line. Last week I was frustrated because I didn't get past this line before leaving for my sister's wedding. Now I am happy with this. It is a great starting place, isn't it. We are right in the middle of the 10 week challenge and I have been pretty successful so far. My goal is 15 pounds lost by the end of the challenge and I have lost 8 pounds, only 7 more to go. I also have just over two months before I see my family again. I had some really big reactions since most of them hadn't seen me since I started losing weight. I want another big reaction. So 200 is a great starting point for a new push forward. Today starts a new personal challenge. My goal is 20 pounds by Christmas, at least 250 fitness minutes a week, and eating within my calorie range daily.

    Thank you everyone. I couldn't have come this far or be as optimistic about my future losses if it wasn't for all of you.

    I am so glad to hear you maintained, that is HUGE if you ask me...especially with the stress and feelings you had while you were there with your sister. I'm proud of you Somer. I know I say it in each blog, but I mean it, I am so proud of you. It's like you've turned this huge corner and you can see the writing on the wall and the sun in your face and all those cliche's...keep it up and you will accomplish each and every goal you set for yourself!
