I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth, but...40 pounds?!??!
Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Well, just last week, I posted a blog about how thrilled I am to have lost 35 pounds.
And somehow, less than one week later, I am officially at 40 pounds lost!!! How did this happen?!?!?!?!?
Now, I'm not complaining - in fact I could not be more excited. But I have been steadily averaging 1.5 pounds lost per week since January (with one icky plateau in there). All the sudden, I've lost 5 pounds in less than one week! What is my secret, you ask? Well, truth is, I don't understand this AT ALL! Nothing has changed in my diet or fitness regimen this month, except that just yesterday I started doing 5-6 small meals per day (eating every 2-3 hours) instead of 3 meals. But I did not start that until yesterday. My calorie ranges are the same, my fitness minutes are approximately the same (and even averaging slightly less than April). It makes no sense! What am I doing right?
Well, I don't know what it is, but I'm stoked. For all the times we struggle with plateaus and slow losses, I'll take this as a wedding gift from God and I'm not going to ask questions. I'll just keep doing what I'm doing, and I know the loss will slow down again. For now, I'm just enjoying the ride!
40 POUNDS - GONE FOREVER!
