Weekly Update: Well How’s About That? November 19, 2010

 

 

Well the scale surprised me yet again this week. I had the full intentions of working out a few times this week along with finally getting the closet re-org. done, but then reality hit and it just hasn’t happened yet.

 

I have been fighting off a cold all week. I only got one good work out in this week. And that clothing sort? Yeah, it’s the project that just won’t get done.

 

I’m pretty sure my thyroid has been doing its crazy dance this week. I go in on Monday back to the doctor for a check on my thyroid. I am looking forward to hearing what he has to say on my progress with my weight loss.

 

So with all that has been going on this week and with my weight yo-yoing back and forth like a spastic two year old on a sugar rush I have to say that I was anticipating a gain this week.

 

Imagine my shock and surprise when I hoped on to the scale and found out that I have hit another baby milestone! This morning I crossed over a line that I better not cross back over unless I am about to pop out a kid.  This morning I say good-bye to the 220’s forever!

 

It really is amazing to see how far I have come in such a short amount of time.  I only wish that my pants could reflect better the change. I am still only down one size and not all 16s fit yet. But then, that goes back to yesterday’s post doesn’t it? My pant size doesn’t matter. All that matters is that I am getting healthy.

 

So now to the results for the week:

 

  • This Week: 1.1 pounds down!
  • Total Weight Lost so far: 23.2 pounds!!!!

Not too shabby if you ask me! Especially when you factor in that I wasn’t expecting any results when I hopped on to the scale this morning.  So dear friends and readers how have you done?

    Keep up the great work! Even though I’ve been trying not to focus on the scale, it’s still nice to see those numbers go down!
