We are at Weigh-in #2 of our Shrink Into Summer challenge over at the Sisterhood! Are you Shrinking? Are you Shredding with us? Come on, join us!! You know you want to! ;o)
We all know that last week I had a gain of a pound, and it sucked. And honestly, I really don’t know how this week is going to go. I WANT to say I feel good about it. I’ve eaten well and added the Shred to my work out routine, but after weeks of struggling to reach the 60 lb milestone, I just don’t know what to think. So, let’s just get it over with. Going to step on the scales now…
Okay, do you guys remember the movie Twins? Of course you do. Now remember the part when all Danny DeVito’s character could do was repeat the words, “Five million dollars. Five MILLION dollars. FIVE MILLIONS DOLLARS!…”? So, picture me doing the death walk to the scales, getting on the scales, stepping off the scales because surely they were wrong, stepping back on the scales and then just standing there dumbfounded that they say that I’ve now lost 60.8 lbs. After that, all I could think was, “I’ve lost sixty pounds. I’ve lost sixty pounds. I‘ve lost sixty pounds” (This is pre-coffee, people, that’s all I have in me before I have coffee.) These words are just stuck in my head! And I am stoked!
Do you want to know why I was so anxious to get to this milestone? When I began all of this, the thought that I needed to lose 76 lbs was a lot overwhelming, so I’ve been taking this weight loss thing 10 lbs at a time. It’s like my motto has been, “focus on getting to the next set of tens”. So, to be stuck in “50-something lbs lost” or so long was frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, I know that losing 50 lbs is a huge accomplishment, and I’m quite proud of myself for that! But mentally I am just ready to focus on the “next set of 10’s”. And now I’m here and I’m going to do it! And if I can, you can! So, are you with me??
Last week’s weight: 147.6
This week’s weight: 145.2
