Today is day #78 of my diet. I started a new work out plan last week that included light hand weights. My weight stalled ALL. WEEK. I only lost 2lbs. I was not a happy camper. My eating didn't change, so I knew that wasn't a factor.
I revisited Simeon's protocol and read on a forum I visit that stalls often happen when a new regime begins or after losing an extreme amount of weight. It didn't make me feel any better, so I measured. Sure enough I lost 3.25 inches in less than a week. I was too anxious to wait until Saturday. As of this morning I have already lost 2.50 inches. Total inches lost from neck to ankles is 57.75. Ok, I can live with that. I am now at 42lbs lost.
I have 36 days remaining before I leave for Memphis. Next week I will be giving my final measurements to the costume maker. I really hope I can lose the next 18lbs in 36 days. I want to reach my goal of 60lbs by the time I get home. I guess if I only make it to 50-55 lost, I will still be happy.
This is not a sprint, but I am realizing more and more it is a marathon....
