Week 1 of Phase 1 and only 1 pound lost. Hmmm. One thing to note is that I started Phase 1 on Monday, so today’s weigh in isn’t quite a week, but I want to keep on my weighing-on-Saturday-morning schedule, so I’m ok with the results not being quite one week’s worth. I think that I actually lost at least 3 pounds, because I had gained a bit after some “super” eating at a Superbowl Sunday party. Earlier in the week (Wednesday I think?) I weighed myself and it said 275, so I think I’ve lost at least 3, but since I didn’t weigh myself last week, I can only go with the “official” weight change of 1 pound.
Still, I’m happy with 1 pound. I haven’t been working out at all this week, so I can see why the Phase 1 plan wouldn’t have as much of an impact. I really need to stop being so lazy in the mornings and get myself up and go to the gym. Sometimes my warm bed is too much of a draw, but I have to force myself. Otherwise I’m never going to show the type of weight loss I’m hoping for at CTLB’s wedding.
Yesterday at lunch she announced that it was exactly 6 months until her wedding day. Wow! 6 months! That’s not that long. It was a huge wake up call for me, knowing that I’ve only lost about 10 pounds so far and I want to lose at least 50 more before the wedding.
It tells me that I need to get off my ass and start getting serious about working out. I need to make some sacrifices in order to reach my goal.
I think I have the food thing down, it’s the working out that I need to work on. As always. Once I get to the gym I’m happy to be there, but it’s the thought of getting up and going that’s the hard part. Well, I’m going to have to force myself, because I don’t want to wake up on August 7th and realize that I had so many opportunities to take this weight off and I failed because I was too lazy. That’s just not going to happen. I won’t allow myself to be that girl 6 months from now.
