I weighed in at 241.8 this morning which gives me a 1 lb. loss this week. Thank God I didn't gain, and thank God the moving is over and I can look forward to a normal week!
A couple of things need to be noted this morning. First of all, I only lost 7.6 lbs this month, my goal being 10 lbs./mo., so I denoted my disappointment in that on my sidebar under Monthly Goals with a little frownie face, lol.
However, I lost more than my goal amount the first 2 months, so when I take the average of all 3 months together, I've lost a total of 30.2 lbs!! So in reality, I'm right on track! Of course, there's no cushion there now, so this coming month has to be spot on. Total focus and the highest importance given to the weight loss. Gonna' take it one week a time, make the best choices I can, and get in some daily exercise at the park. It's going to be a great week!
Also, I met a mini-goal this week. I set up a reward system, where I reward myself with something for every 15 lbs. lost. I hit the 30 lb mark today...time for another reward!! I have no idea what yet, likely something small due to my budget, but size and cost aren't the issue...it's the signifigance of the reward that matters to me. I told myself when I first started back in June that if I could just get to 30 lbs., then I'd really feel like I was on my way. I'm 1/3 of the way to my goal!! It's a fantastic day!!
Got a busy day ahead filled with chores and grocery shopping before Dwayne gets here this evening, as well as the cable guy coming by somewhere between 11a-2p to fix a small problem. I made another breakfast casserole last night for the next 4 mornings....only 166 calories per serving. Today's off to a great start! :)
