Weigh Day (week twenty-five)

Hello again.  These weeks just seem to by flying by…more quickly than I would really like.  We are now officially into 2012.  Can you believe that?  It seems like just yesterday it was 2011…okay, yeah, that was not really funny.  :)

Anyway, this week has been a little rough on the workout schedule still.  I did not make it to the gym Monday because we celebrated Christmas with extended family all day long.  Wednesday brought a session with Denise, Friday I was on my own, and today brought another session with Denise (and she kicked my butt…just so we are clear).

This morning, I am happy to report, I weighed in at 247.6.  This puts my total weight loss at 67.4 pounds in 25 weeks.  Next week marks the official 1/2 a year (26 weeks), although my six-month mark will hit January 10th.  Go figure.  It is completely crazy to think how life changing these past 25 weeks have been for me.  Truly insane.

So, looking forward…my next goal is 225 by 2/25 (my 30th birthday).  That is exactly 55 days from today.  Will I make it?  Who knows…but I am certainly going to bust my hiney to find out!

GOAL TRACKER (sounds intriguing, doesn’t it?)
55 days
22.6 pounds

On a brief side note…I brought in the new year pretty sluggishly.  I sat on my couch with a friend and watched a movie (and then two episodes of How It’s Made so I would not have nightmares from the scary movie…and I am not joking).  Great movie, by the way, it was called Insidious.  Scary (as I previously mentioned), so if you are not into jump and scream your head off kind of movies you should skip it altogether.

Today (the very first day of 2012) was a great day.  I hit the gym and worked hard with my trainer, Denise.  Then I went out with my bestie, Leslie, for dinner.  Now, I am off to watch another movie while doing some “to do” items in the livingroom.  Perfect day…and hopefully an awesome year.

How did you bring in the new year?

  1. I set a new record this new year’s eve – asleep before 10 pm! I was even dressed to go out … and just couldn’t make it happen. So, I was thrilled to start the new year well-rested. :-D

    55 days – you can do it!

  2. Thanks, Andie! I am going to work my butt off (literally) to try to achieve that goal, but it won’t surprise me if I fall a few pounds short. I’d need a solid 3-pound loss every week between now and then to hit that goal, and I just haven’t been averaging that kind of loss anymore. I am getting between 2.2 and 2.8 pounds off per week…which is perfectly fine by me (by the way). :) But, it still gives me something to strive for.
