Ahhh, weigh-in day. Ok, ok, a day late. But since it was on purpose, I can be forgiven. Just in case you missed it, I did a feature post yesterday. My second for the “motivational people” archives…but my first for actual weight loss bloggers! Gretchen from Honey, I shrunk the Gretchen. I had a great time writing it, and she was so helpful and nice about answering the Q&As I sent and also sending me pictures! So I decided on waiting to weigh myself until today.
Took some restraint, because if it were up to me, I would weigh myself constantly…but I waited.
Last week: 186.4
This week: 186.4
No lost or gained
I’m just kind of like, eh. To be expected. It’s that time of the month (sorry boys!!!!!) and I’m definitely bloating. So I’m hoping that is good news. Bloating and weighing the same as I weighed last week. Keep your fingers crossed, I’m hoping for epic things next week.
Although I have noticed that this ALWAYS happens to me. I get so close to one of my goals (this one being 184) and I totally expect to reach that goal…and Aunt Flo always shows up and ruins it for me. It happened right before I hit 199… go figure. But next week I am determined to see that magical 184!!! I’ll get my chip!!! AND I’ll be officially 80 pounds down from my highest weight! I can’t wait.
But I was thinking about how close I am to that 184, and realized that I honestly can’t remember the last time I weighed 184. It’s a shocker. I guess that’s kind of unfair because any number under 200 is going to be a number that I don’t remember being at…but it’s strange to actually sit there and think about it.
The even more shocking thing is that I’m actually only about 20 pounds away from that 165 number. Insanity. That’s my “first” goal weight. It’s the weight that I’m going to stop at for a little while and see how I feel about it. If I feel I need to continue then I will, if I feel like I should stop…then I will. But I wanted to sit at 165 for a while and see how I feel about that weight. I’m not sure how long “a while” is. But we’ll see.
Technically, at 165 I’ll still be considered “overweight” not by much…but still a little…and honestly not enough to worry about. Hey I’d be healthier than weighing 264, like I was.
The thing that freaks me out the most…I’m only 20 pounds away from losing 100 pounds. That’s insane to me. Losing 100 pounds. I don’t know if I am excited to be able to say that. “Hey, I lost 100 pounds” it’s either a testament to my hard work, or an admission that I was once 100 pounds heavier. I’m not sure if I should care or not. I’m sure I’ll figure it out.
On happy happy news…my mom said that I could have her elliptical. She hates it. Doesn’t enjoy it at all, so she said she doesn’t want to keep doing something she hates…good train of thought, Mom. 🙂
So yeah, I’m super happy about that. Probably going to head over there and pick it up at some point today. Yep. Then I’ll get all on that elliptical-ness
I’m also planning on going photo crazy. I haven’t been having pictures on here for a little while, I realized that I’m no good at taking pictures to begin with. But I wanted more pictures on my actual page, and my blog posts could be much better with pictures. So I’ve gotta get on that!!!
