Ready for a little dose of accountability? Ready or not, the Weekly Weigh-In is here! Okay, so I got on the scale with mixed feelings this week. I’d done really well last week at hitting my calorie burn each day – well, except Saturday and Sunday, but that’s not unusual – and I thought I’d done well with my eating, but I wasn’t entirely sure because I’d done a terrible job at tracking my food on the bodybugg site.
So, I thought I’d done well, but I wasn’t entirely sure. I may or may not have been mumbling, “please be down, please be down” under my breath as I stepped on the scale.
I was very pleased, relieved, and encouraged to find that I’d lost a pound! Although the bodybugg site slapped me back to reality when I logged in and it reminded me that my long-term and short-term goals are not currently on-track, I was thrilled with my one-pound loss because it’s the first time in the eight weeks since I started tracking my weight again that I’ve lost weight two weeks in a row. I’m sincerely hoping that means that I’m making my way off this plateau on which I’ve allowed myself to be stuck for months.
The other exciting news is that if I lose 1.6 pounds or more this week I will officially not be obese anymore! It’s been years since I’ve been able to say that and I’m ready! How’s that for a little motivation to stick with the workout and eating plans this week?
So, what about you? How did you do coming off of Christmas break? Remember, you’ve got a fresh clean slate this week. Check out the Do or Do Not Challenge if you need some motivation.
