I’m not sure if anyone is really following these, but I’ve made myself post them so that I’ll feel an extra added incentive. I hate the thought of coming on here to tell you that I’ve had a bad week because I’ve had pizza and beer every night, so this keeps me honest and motivated.
So, week 4 has ended and…drumroll please…I dropped another 1.5 pounds! Yay! The line is very mysteriously between two numbers, so rather than sell myself short or give myself too much credit, I’m going to be honest. Here are my stats then:
Weigh Loss Required: 18 lbs.
Week 1 Weight Loss: 2 lbs.
Week 2 Weight Loss: 3 lbs.
Week 3 Weight Loss: 0 lbs.
Week 4 Weight Loss: 1.5 lbs.
Total Weight Loss Thus Far: 6.5 lbs.
Weight Loss To Go: 11.5 lbs.
Let me know if there are errors with my math. 😉
So, what’s been going on for me on the weight loss front? Well, in all honesty, I was discouraged by last week, and ate out/ordered in a few nights to console myself. But I’ve noticed that I’m feeling full sooner, and not overeating to the extent that I was before. I’m also being more reasonable with my alcohol consumption–drinking one beer or glass of wine to unwind at night, instead of 4 or 5. I’ve also steered clear of regular soda, and am (gasp) starting to acquire a taste for diet. I’m also still drinking tea and coffee, but using sweetener instead of sugar.
I didn’t add in the gym or running as I’ve said I would for the last 3 weeks. I know I need to, but don’t know why I’m so resistant to actually doing it. I have been walking a bit more, though, so that’s good.
So, on to another week! 😉 I’m hoping for another 1.5 lbs this week, which would bring me down a total of 8 lbs. with only 10 to go! Fingers crossed!
