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.
