So today was just an awesome weigh in. Makes me feel AWESOME!
Last week: 190.2
This week: 186.8
Down 3.4 pounds
I had been hoping for some large weight loss, so I’m glad that it was large. I really was. Especially since last week’s weigh-in I’m pretty positive that I was bloating since my TTotM had hit (sorry all you boys reading this). At least, I’m assuming that I was bloated,haha.
On top of that, I’ve been burning massive amounts of calories while at work. I’ve been pretty good this past week. So overall, I’m pretty happy with myself.
And this time around, after losing an AWESOME amount of weight, I’m not going to get cocky (or whatever the heck happened two weeks ago)…and I’m just going to keep going.
Hopefully by next week I’ll be able to get my -80 chip!!!!!
For those of you who don’t know about my chips, I got the idea from that movie Arthur (you know, the one with Russell Brand). SPOILER ALERT there is one part in it where he is attending AA meetings and he was playing with this little chip. SPOILER OVER You hear about people going to AA meetings and they get chips for going a certain amount of time being sober.
So oddly enough it’s kind of symbolic, and I couldn’t get it out of my mind so I had to steal the idea.
It made perfect sense to me at the time. They get chips for accomplishing goals defeating their own demons. And for me it’s the same kind of sense.Getting chips for losing my demons (pounds)
Clever, huh? If you don’t think it’s too clever, don’t tell me. Just let me think that I had this amazingly brilliant clever idea. Haha.
But my chips are pretty much on a -10 scale. So every 10 pounds I lose I get a chip. I also have “checkpoint chips”…. So when I’ve hit my halfway point (already have it)… when I’ve hit that 3/4 mark… when I hit -100 pounds.That kind of thing.
And then, since the last 10 pounds are always the hardest, the last few chips I’ll get are -5 until I get my “I DID IT” chip.
I hope I didn’t confuse you too much.
But I’m super excited about it, because in 2.8 pounds I will get my -80chip!!!!!
It’s lame to be excited about it, but I really am.
It is the one main motivational thing that I have that I am actually really excited for.
I’m thinking tonight is going to be another boxing/sparring night with Josh. It’ll be fun!!!! And this time I won’t bop myself in the face.
Although tonight is the season finale of Revenge.
I’m super sad about it, it’s been season finales all week. Supernatural ended, Glee ended, Once upon a Time ended…… Psych ended a while ago…
But the good news is that White Collar and Pretty Little Liars is coming back on the air soon.
So I’m going to have to do some couch exercising while I’m sitting around watching it all. Haha.
If you can’t tell, Josh and I are definitely TV buffs. We have a list of about 8 shows that we watch ALL THE TIME. We have to keep up on them.
So yeah, we’re pretty lame… but it’s our thing.
The ONLY thing that is missing is having a Chinese food night along with one of our shows. We’ll incorporate that slowly…. Josh is a “Chinese food once a month (if you’re lucky)” kind of guy.
I’m a “Gimme gimme gimme” kinda gal…and don’t get me started on Sushi (I know that isn’t Chinese…but still delish). But we don’t have a Sushi shop around here.
Poop. So tonight I’m going have a nice night of Revenge and yummy (not chinese) food.
