Wow! Week 6 of the Sisterhood’s Shrink Into Summer challenge has gotten here fast! How are you doing? We only have two weeks left!
I had a decent week as far as food and exercise goes. I’m not bowling for the summer, so I did work out extra on Thursday. I do expect some sort of loss this week. I have had a few stresses this week though, so if I do gain, it could be related to that. Let’s find out:
Last week’s weight: 145.6
This week’s weight: 144.6
A pound! That’s freaking awesome for me! Gone are the days of losing 4 lbs a week because I just don’t have it to lose, so anything a lb and over is just great! With two weeks left in the challenge, I know I’m no where near my 10 lb goal for the challenge, but you know what? I’m just fine with it because our ultimate goal in all of this is to lose, so as long as I’m doing that, I feel great.
It reminds me a bit of my original goal. You know, way back when? When I first decided to get healthy I set my goal weight at 140. I chose this number because I knew it was a number I could get to because I had been close to this number before. It was the safe goal. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I was selling myself short. If I stuck with 140 as my goal, then I would get there and never know IF I could get to the 130’s, which was actually better for someone my height.
At that moment, I decided not to sell myself short and decided to shoot for the stars. My goal became 130. (My doctor confirmed that this is a good weight for me.) And all of that time ago, it seemed a little overwhelming, but I never have doubted that I will get there. And I will. I only have 14.6 lbs to go!
I may not reach my 10lb goal for the challenge, but you will always see me set a high goal for myself. I will always shoot for those stars!
So, don’t sell yourself short! Reach for the stars because you CAN do it! It’ll be a struggle and a pain in the ass sometimes, but it can be done! If the laziest person in the world can do it (that = me), then you can do it!
So tell me, what is your goal? Have you reached for the stars?
