As promised, I'm going to start linking up with Brandy's Fat Ass Fridays again. I'm pretty sure Brandy isn't doing the link up this week because she's busy with working and playing at the fair, but I wanted to check in anyway. :)
So I had to shuffle through my posts to find my last reported weigh in which was back on August 17th. I weighed in at 168. So current stats are as follows:
Starting weight: 192
Last weigh in: 168.0
Current weight: 166.4
Weight +GAIN / -LOSS this week: -1.6 lbs
Total weight lost: 25.6 lbs
So I've pretty much fluctuated between 165-170 over the past few weeks, but now I'm committed. I'm committed to losing another 25 pounds and keeping it off. To further understand the difference between "committed" and "interested" in weight loss, I suggest you read this post by my friend over at Fat in Suburbia. She's referring to the book 100 Days of Weight Loss by Linda Spangle.
Anyway, I was definitely committed when I started this journey back in December of last year but around Memorial Day I lost interest. I was no longer committed, I wasn't even interested! Over the past month or so I've become interested again, interested in getting the rest of the weight off, interested in being able to hike as well as the little trail runners I see on the mountains, interested in being able to wear cute clothes, interested in getting back all those great habits I had 6 months ago.
But I never really "committed".
I'm committed now damn it! I had a great week. I stuck within my calorie range, I stayed away from Diet Coke, I put in good workouts at the gym and even set up walking dates with my friend Jenn, we did five miles on the track on Tuesday (we also had a lot of catching up to do, haha)!
The good news is I'm finding this easy, just as easy as it was when I started it and that's good. That means I can get back into the routine.
So here's to losing another 25 pounds!
