145.6 - I lost a whole whopping 0.4 lbs this week!!! YAY! I know, I know, not really a big deal. However, I've been stuck on 146 for... this would have been 9 weeks! It's encouraging to see some result for all this hard work, even if it's less than half a pound. I'm going towards goal, and that's what counts.
I have a big week, lots I want to accomplish. Johnny's taking me shopping for new running shoes in the city today on his lunch break. I love him! He knows that I have a hard time spending money on myself, and he knew that if he didn't go with me, I'd never be able to fork over anything more than $50 a pair of shoes, but I am in desperate need of good running shoes, considering the Bridge to Brisbane 10k is in... holy cow! Less than 4 days! I need to brake them in fast!
The biggest thing though really (I AM excited about the race, but I'm more doing it for fun, to be able to say "I did it!") is GAG (Give A Gift - to yourself). I can't tell you how happy I am Sheila is doing this holiday season challenge. Her Spring-time Sizzlin Hot for Summer challenge provided the exact support I needed, and now I'm almost ready for round two. I lost 20 lbs last time, and looking for the last 15-20 I need to get to my final goal! This is it. Here I come!
I have to give a big hug and a HUGE THANK YOU to Kat for her post on Inconsistency. It was like an awakening. You know, we need those moments every few months or so. Maybe more.
My ups and downs (hence the Yo-Yo) is just something that I have always known to be true of me, like a part of me. But when you call it "inconsistency", it's different. And it's the truth. Sadly, it is something I have learned to be okay with. But......... reading Kat's post, reminded me that it is something that has to go. It is something that I can change. Easy? No. But I know it has to be a big priority right now. Inconsistency in healthy choice eating is the cause of my struggle to get off this plateau! Thank you thank you thank you thank you for pulling my head out of the sand, and helping me see the road ahead. I know what I have to do now. Starting with a personal "Why I am losing weight" list (to be posted later). Also, like Kat, I am a visual person, so I will need to find a magazine picture of the body I want. I had a couple when I started out "dieting" in January, and they were a big help I think.
