Day 316: Getting TOO Comfortable
Tuesday, March 08, 2011
When I set my weight loss goals, I wanted to be able to wear a size 16 pants. I don't know what size I was when I started out, because I was still wearing my maternity jeans and my husbands size 3X and 4X tshirts. I do have a dress that I bought at my biggest(294 lbs) and it's a size 24. I can now fit a size 16, but I'm not done! I still want to lose 56 lbs and 10 inches off my waist. My friend told me yesterday she would love to be my size. I had such an oddly shaped body when I was bigger, she says now my body is very portioned and that made me feel so good. But I do not want to be so comfortable with myself that I forget how much more I want to achieve. I still have a belly that I want to be a flat stomach, flabby arms that I want cut and thighs that I'm so in love with to be more tone.
I haven't been this small my adult life, which isn't long, or when I was in high school. I'm taking time to get used to my new body but there is still so much I need to work on. I have noticed my eating is a little more relaxed than normal and my twice a day workouts have gone down to one. I haven't gained any weight but I haven't lost any weight. Time to step it up! I told myself I wanted to lose 16 lbs in 16 days starting March 1, and here we are March 8 and I don't know if I've lost any weight because I was letting my scale rule my life and it's rolling around in our Tahoe lol. But I believe even if I don't reach that goal I will still reach my over all goal by May.
So at day 316, I'm ready to step my game up. I can't wait to get outside today and complete my first day of week 3 for the Virtual 5k jog/walk. Loving everyday that I can get up and start all over again. Stay blessed Sparkies
