Every wednesday morning I’m mad at myself for not starting the weeks weigh-in post the night before. Now I’m rushing to get this up with a ticking time bomb in the nursery and a 7 year old who needs to get ready for the bus. But every Tuesday night I’m too busy posting about Tuesday to even think about Wednesday.
Does that make sense? I’m very much an “in the moment” blogger. What you see is what you get. I rarely schedule anything. I write. I publish. That’s my style and why most post are an editor’s nightmare.
Anyway, without further ado, this weeks weigh-in…
CW: 149.2 (down .8)
H: 5′ 8”
Down .8 after last weeks up .6 and this is my lowest weigh in since we started! Total down? 4 lbs!
I’m totally happy! I’m feeling good!
Yup, I’m excited to be down 4 lbs in 5 weeks! Again, this isn’t Biggest Loser. My plan is to slowly chip away at that number with all my small choices and consistent healthier lifestyle.
Big numbers are fun, there’s no doubt about it. But wouldn’t you rather a permanent small loss over a short term large one? I’m pretty sure my older self would have said no, but after doing this for 7 years, I’m all about the small loss.
Because I’m living the life I want to be living regardless of what the scale says and that’s the biggest goal I have achieved.
This week I want you to not only weigh in but tell us at least one thing you are super proud of. One decision that you may not have made just 4 or 5 weeks ago. Maybe it helped nudge the scale for you this week. Maybe it didn’t. But it’s a representation of your commitment to your goals.
Me? I’m proud of myself for trying Sashimi. I decided to go out of my comfort zone and skip the extra rice for lunch. It was yummy! and now I have something else in my bag of tricks for when the husband temps me with a request to eat out. :)
