The 180's, Measurements & Feeling Focused!
Thursday, March 06, 2014
So today my weigh in was as expected, pretty mediocre all things considered. I was down .6. I am always happy to see a loss, no matter how small. Don't get me wrong, I know we all hope for more, but I knew exactly why it was so minimal. Last week, I ate too much Wednesday-Friday. (I am counting in BLC weeks, so my week is Wednesday-Tuesday). I was perfect Saturday-Tuesday, but the first part of that awesomeness was spent correcting the damage from the first few days. So I was very thankful to have a loss to report, but the reason that .6 made me smile instead of cringe was because it put me back into the 180's!! I hit the 180's in October, but then I went downhill during the holiday extravaganza and haven't seen them since. I am no longer getting caught up on where I "could be" if I hadn't slipped up. I "could be" at my goal by now if I had stayed on track, but I also "could be" back up to my starting weight... it "could be" either way. So I am no longer getting caught up in what "could be", I am focused on what IS. What is happening right now is so much more important than wondering about things that aren't a reality. So the reality is that I am 189.8! Oh yes, I am teetering right on the edge of 190ville, but I think I am in a good place mentally... so I am declaring I am done with the 190's for the second and final time. Hopefully I am not jinxing myself by saying that, but time will tell! I have my eye on the prize, and I am not losing sight of it this time!
I took measurements for the first time since September. I knew it was a bit silly because I was only 2 pounds lower than I was when I took the measurements in September. But I thought oh, what the heck! My calves were a tiny bit bigger, which I thought was pretty cool. Why is it that's the only one I am happy about if it gets bigger?
My waist was an additional inch down, I am down to 38 inches! My highest weight was 272 and I have no measurements for that weight. But at 254 pounds, I had a 52 inch waist... so based on that I have lost 14 inches of my waist, and boy am I happy about that!
I am finally back to
's, and boy did I miss them! I am back into the swing of things, I am focused, and I think I am at that place mentally where nothing can knock me off my game.
