Weighing in on No.9
So No. 9 on my to-do list is lose 10 pounds. When I did my “Progress Report” on my “half birthday” I’d lost 5.5 of those 10 pounds. But weighing in once a week as I first thought I’d do was becoming a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. And I hate roller-coasters of any kind. So from that time until yesterday, I stayed away from the scale. I stopped my calorie counting. I figured at this point, I’m into a good solid work-out routine. I don’t pig out on fast food. I don’t snack unless it’s healthy. I’m eating good portion sizes (I have to to keep running as far as I am now!). So I figured I’d just keep doing what I was doing and hope the LBS’s just slid off on their own and not monitor them like a teenage girl.
Until yesterday. Husband and I went to the gym to work out in the hopes of escaping from the insanely high pollen count lurking outside. And the scale was there. Calling my name. So I went for it….and was beyond thrilled to see that my weight indeed was less than last time! (Don’t you love how I’m dragging this out!) I’m proud to say that since January 1, 2012….I have officially lost 8 pounds! Ta da! That’s only 2 pounds away from my overall goal of 10! But don’t expect any more weight updates soon. I’ve decided not to hop back on the scale until after the 1/2 marathon. A girl needs a little suspense every now and then.
