Good morning my darlings. I have to say even though the loss this week wasn’t as great as I hoped for, I am just glad that the weight went down. I had a nightmare about it being stuck in the same spot even though I made changes. Luckily the sale is back on it’s down ward trajectory.
This week I concentrated on getting my exercise in but not overdoing it. It is a strange line. I like the thought of expelling more calories causes more weight loss but there is a limit. If i don’t eat enough my body just goes into lock down and refuses to let the scale budge an inch. It is quite frustrating.
It is also a lesson in balance. And one I thought i learned a long time ago, but apparently you can never stop learning the same lesson. I’m sure there is some sort of parable written about that, but instead I am just going to say that I have once again learned the lesson. I exercised moderation this week and once again the scale is moving. It wasn’t enough movement to earn a happy dance, but it did make me happy.
Do you know what also made me happy? Having those video workouts lined up and waiting. As expected Wednesday night the skies opened up and it really hasn’t stopped raining since. The low lying areas have flash flood warnings going out once an hour so I suspect that even if I wanted to walk, the park is going to be flooded for at least a few days after the rains stop.
But I had those videos lined up and waiting.
That did get a morning happy dance. Two thumbs up for thinking ahead and planning. Woo hoo for me and my bad weather work out.
Starting Weight: 246 lbs
Last Week’s Weight: 214.0 lbs
This week’s Weight: 213.6 lbs
Lost this week: 0.4 lbs
Lost over all: 32.4 lbs
And so the chipping away of the weight continues. The progress is slow but for the most part steady. And it encourages me to keep going. I know it is a back and forth process and if any of you are going on your own weight loss journey, I hope you remember to be kind to yourself and to celebrate even the smallest of achievements. Because taking care of yourself is always a worthwhile effort.
