Today’s post will be short. There is so much to do and so little time to do it (am I the only one feeling that way at this time of year?).
First, the good news: I am down another 1.6 pounds this week!
I am also feeling confident enough to spill the beans (which reminds me – did you realize that baked beans are a great source of fibre? But I digress…) about my weight.
Last year, when I let stress get the best of me, I gained weight. I know I’ve mentioned that but I was embarrassed at how bad I had let things get so I’ve never said exactly how much weight I gained.
Now I’ll just say it. The scale went past 200 pounds and landed at 204 pounds. I was mortified. And that realization is what sparked the changes I’ve been making.
With today’s loss I am currently down to 171.8 –> I’ve gone down 32.2 pounds since January 1st and the majority of it since May.
I still have a ways to go to hit the goal I’ve set for myself, but I’m really proud of myself. Next step – stop wearing clothes that are too big for me (one of my friends told me that I have to stop wearing things that are so baggy that no one will even be able to tell I’ve lost weight and I think she is right).
Onward and upward! Happy Monday!
