Another week down. Another 3lbs lost! I also lost 2.5 more inches, which is a total of 54 inches lost. It has been 74 days since I started on this diet. Despite my loss I have been stuck at 0.2lbs away from my next goal of 40lbs for what seems like ages (but it has only been a four days). I know, "would you like some whine with your cheese?"
I am still pleased, but need the scale to keep moving. I am not near done yet! I have my next goal which is another 20lbs set for my Memphis trip (in 43 days!). I cannot stress enough the importance of setting long term and short term goals. It really does keep you going. Not only goal setting, but small tangible (non-food) rewards are a good motivator.
Over the past few weeks, I have cleaned out my closet. It wasn't something I wanted to do, but had to do because my clothes just don't fit any more. They are too loose, too long, too big! I am in between sizes at the moment which is proving frustrating, but it is better than being unhappy and unhealthy because of my weight. I am almost ready for the next size down, which will mean clothes I haven 't seen since 2004!!!! Some still have tags as I became pregnant at the end of 2004 with my first child.
Pinterest has become a great source of inspiration. I can pin my goals and my rewards, find HCG recipes, and discover new work-out regimens.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that the scales move in the right direction soon! Another week down!
