See that, the blue star? I've officially hit 5 lbs lost!
For my weigh-in this week I lost 1.6 lbs, bringing my total to 5.8. That's only 4.2 lbs away from my 5% goal. The day of I was a little discouraged because I had been weighing myself incessantly at home (I know, it's a no-no) so I was a little confused as to what I would read at the meeting. Actually, I kind of figured I'd maintain or gain, so I was pretty worried. As I was telling my mom about this I realized that even if I did gain, I wasn't ready to give up. I would not be ordering a pizza out of sheer frustration or drop it altogether because it just wasn't working fast enoungh. Although I'm very anxious to see results (thank you captain obvious, like I'm the only one) I felt like I was also just enjoying the changes I was making. I love that I'm eating healthier than I was, and that I'm moving more. And even if I never lose a pound, those choices can still make me healthier. I guess it goes with what I said before about being ready. This time it's not just about looking good or clothes shopping, (still on the goal list, don't get me wrong) I'm actually becoming more open to a whole lifestyle change. As one who has always been pretty resistant to change it's feeling progress! :)
