Weigh Day (week forty-nine)

Sorry for the late post, folks.  I failed to mention I was going camping over the weekend with my daughters’ girl scout troop.  Me and 30 girls under the age of 11 in a room for two nights.  Needless to say, I did not get *nearly* enough sleep to adequately feul hiking, swimming, dancing, playing, roasting marshmallows, and painting nails.  I survived, though.  Guess that is what really matters…

I worked hard last week.  I attended bootcamp on Tuesday and Thursday, and I trained with Denise on Wednesday.  Three days in a row with Denise was awesome…and it was intense.  I am; however, looking forward to getting back into my regular routine again.  Between vacation early this month and camping, my routine has gone pretty far off track.  That bothers me to a degree, but it also helps me feel like I am in better control of my life than I realize.  The reason I say this is simply because I am continuing to lose…despite vacation and camping…despite family functions and holiday celebrations…I have learned how to cope with these things and still come out on top.  This is huge!  Not that I am perfect, I am certainly not.  I still have weak moments, I probably always will, but I am learning to manage them so they do not consume me any longer.  Yes.

As for weigh in…

203.6

That is 2.2 pounds down from last week!  I am certainly happy with that!  My total for 49 weeks is 111.4 pounds!  Insane!  I could not possibly be happier…really.

Realizing that 52 weeks is just around the corner…I really, really, really, want to be under 200 before that happens!  Ideally, I would have liked to lose 120 pounds in 12 months, but I seriously doubt that will happen.  So, I am just going to shoot for being *under* 200 pounds by the time week 52’s weigh in comes.  I should be able to pull that off easily, right?

I have some other things coming your way (hopefully later today)…

  1. Wow! Awesome on the 111.4 lbs. You should be so proud. Glad to hear you survived Girl Scout camp!

  2. Congrats on the weight loss and also for being able to overcome those random life moments that would usually get you off track. You’ve done (and are still doing) an amazing job!! 🙂

    • Thanks, Tammy! I really feel like an entirely new person! Not just physically, but mentally as well. I just don’t look at food the same way anymore. I find I am far less tempted than ever before (not that I don’t indulge in the occasional sweet now), and that feeling is so empowering. To feel as though I actually have some control…it’s wonderful. 🙂

      Thanks for the support!
