I weighed in this morning 1 pound less than I was last week for a total lost of 14 pounds. I can almost bet when I weigh in tomorrow morning, i’ll be at that 15 pound mark like I wanted to be today. In fact, when I randomly weighed myself Saturday morning, I was down 15 but you know weigh changes throughout the week based on multiple factors. I’ll just keep my Tuesday weigh ins for consistency.
Saying 14 or 15 pounds sounds great. I can’t wait to say “Hi I’m Krystal and I’m down 35, 40, 50, 60, etc”. Until then I’m trying to remember that it takes time to lose weight and that I’m strength training almost as hard as I’m doing cardio. Of course that means that I’m getting smaller but the scale may not show it just yet. I will start to record my measurements so I can see progress somewhere.
FYI: My girl friends have commented on how round my butt is getting. That makes me blush hahaha. I attribute it to those squats.
Next week’s goal = 2 pounds
Here’s a photo from last weekend of me and my girlfriends.
It was the birthday of J (white dress). I traveled far (it’s not that far) to Dobbs Ferry to have brunch with her, I do love my friends!
Brunch at Half Moon was great! The atmosphere was amazing and it’s right off the water. J is such an inspiration because she changed her life by losing about 40-50 pounds about 2 years ago or so. She is always encouraging me to continue my journey.
Although the first photo doesn’t have the best quality, I think I look so uncomfortable and I couldn’t remember how to stand to create more curves (I’m on the left hand side at the end). By the way, my dress was red and from Boohoo’s website.
It’s definitely a good picture to have as a before even though in this photo I’m still 11 pounds down from where I started. I definitely think 90-100 pounds are a good number for me to lose. It’s all coming from that middle!
All with time…
I stepped on the scale this morning with an uneasy feeling. I really wasn’t sure of the number that it would display…. I am 1 pound down today for a total of 8 pounds down. September 10th would be my 1 month mark.
Let’s talk about what I ate this past week. I rarely cooked, I went on three outings that consisted of multiple drinks and yummy food. I did workout like a psycho to try to make up for it but you just can’t make up for eating badly. I would say that I eat considerably healthier than before (Aug 10th) but I still have a bunch of improvements. I feel okay about the lost of one pound. I can fit back into this yellow peplum shirt that I could no longer fit and I fit into my floral shorts that I could never fit but refused to return. This week was a good week.
Next week my goal is to lose 2 pounds.
Tuesdays are my weigh in days. It gives me one more day after the weekend to get my stuff together.
Today’s lost was -1 pounds or -1.2 if you want to be exact. That’s a total of 7 pounds in about 20-22 days or so.
I feel okay about that. I feel like I could have done better. Specifically, I feel like I could have done better this week. Friday I had pizza (2 slices), wine (2 glasses), and I ditched working out that day. Sunday I went to brunch and had the most delicious Chicken Prego at Jack’s Wife Frieda in West Village. Yum. I could have done without the pizza. That’s the cause of only my -1 pound lost.
This weekend is Labor Day Weekend and such a huge weekend for drinks and BBQ. Since I’m not going home to see family, maybe I can dodge the BBQ and drinks.
Next Tuesday’s goal is to lose 2 pounds for a total of 9 pounds lost.
