I’m crazy busy and I was away for a couple of weeks on hols just to make the busyness even crazier!!!

It’s three weeks since I weighed in officially here and I’m DOWN 1.8 lbs !!!! I’ve crossed the 10lbs lost mark! After holidays and everything !! I cannot believe it! I’m very, very happy with my progress (and I’m totally over using exclamation marks!!!!). I went straight back to my trainer after my hols and will continue at least until I get to goal.

Other than that work is crazy and that project is due to be handed in next week so all systems are go. Many stress-induced chocolate urges as a result but I’m fighting them mostly and I’m getting there. Then I’m going to be freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee 🙂

I usually weigh in before dinner for consistency (ya right!!!) but this day has just gotten away from me. I looked up, saw the time and suddenly realised I hadn’t weighed myself yet!

So off I toddled to the scales and I’m happy to say that I am down 1.4 lbs this week. This puts me only .4 of a pound away from a 10lb loss!!! So, so close but hey I’ll get there. I’m also only 2.4 lbs away from the 180’s which will be a big milestone for me as well.

I’m not going to concentrate on these milestones too much though. The important thing is I’m still losing. Slow and steady which is just fine with me!

I will be away on holidays starting next week so being realistic my loss just might stall a bit but I think my goal for that time should just be to not gain if at all possible and if do gain a pound or two it won’t be the end of the world. I can just work harder on my return and get right back on track.

Quick update!

My weigh-in at training today showed me down 2 lbs and more reduction in inches which I totally was not expecting. I’m not going to update my progress here though because I only recently promised to stick to my own weigh-in for that! Damn 🙂

It doesn’t matter really…. so long as the numbers are heading in the right direction I’m happy!
I’m sure it will show next week. I’m feeling good and I can definitely see a difference in myself so onwards and downwards.

That project is progressing too…. not as quickly as I’d like but any progress is better that none right.

A quote arrived in my inbox today that kinda summed up my life lately.

He conquers who endures. Persius (34-62 AD, Satirical Poet)

Four words that say so much !!!!!

Weekly weigh-in

My personal weigh in today sees me staying the same which doesn’t bode well for my trainers goal of a 3lbs loss for me this week!! I have a few more days to go but I can’t see it happening.

I can’t say I’m surprised at staying the same because I have been feeling kind of stuck all week… like nothing is happening. I am slightly disappointed though because I’ve been exercising and eating well. I have added back in some carbs this week however and I’m curious if that might be part of the problem. Thankfully I’m still feeling confident enough and I know it’s just a blip in my progress. Things will start moving again soon enough.

Patience, patience, patience….. 🙂
