So what do you think? Remember I had a tough week plus this past month. I had to start all over on the sugar cravings. I had to start exercising again after taking almost 2 weeks off. Well not “off” but I sure didn’t work out hard either. So what do you think? How will I be?
Here I go, it’s 7:00 in the morning and I’m going to go and weigh myself. Ready?………………………………. Well, it’s not the 5-6 lbs I had hoped for, it’s just 2 lbs. It’s a loss I know but hard to swallow when I now know that I’m not going to be 180 for Mike’s graduation open house and I can not blame a soul but me. No one. I’ve only lost 17 lbs since January 2nd. Now I know in my heart that’s good. I really do but when I shared my results with Jim, know what he said….he said Harvey has lost 30 lbs since January, you only 17 and he knows Harvey isn’t exercising, he knows I am. That hurt guys, I know it should be more, it only averages out to 4 lbs a month, who loses 4 lbs a month and call it a success? Well guess what I DO!!!! Because it’s 17 lbs less then I weighed at the beginning of the year. I have to look at it this way guys. I have too!!! So I won’t weight 180 at Mike’s graduation, I won’t weigh 225 either. So YEAH!!! for me!!!
Now onto the part that really counts. It’s now 8:00 and I’m going to go measure me. Let’s start out at the top…
my neck….it’s down another 1/4”
my upper arms….down 1/2”
lower arms…down 1/4”
below the bust….. down 2 1/4'”
waist….. down 2 1/2”
fat stuff …. down 2 1/4”
hips …. no change
thighs …. 1”
calves …. 1”
So screw you Jim, I lost another 11” this past month. That means 32 1/2” since January 2nd. I’ve lost a total of 6” off my waist, 4 off my bust, 5 below my bust, 4 1/2” off my fat stuff, 3 off my neck and 4 1/2 off my thighs. A little bit more here and there but I’m happy. I AM VERY HAPPY!!!!
So this month I do have a goal I want to make, I want to lost 8 lbs, the last 8 pounds in the 200’s. I am going to weigh myself on the 17th and again on the 31st. This way I know what I’m doing, how I’m doing and if I need to push harder. I won’t make the 180 lbs but how about 199, that would count, right? RIGHT!!!
Now the main thing I’m going to work on this month and it’s not the worry of the scale either, I’m going to work on posture. Know why? I slouch, I don’t hold my tummy in, I don’t squeeze my butt. I’m sloppy. Not this month, I’m going to work on building those muscles. Of course I’m going to walk, ride my bike, exercise too but I’ve noticed I have poor posture and that makes my belly stick out more, it’s pulls on my back which makes my back hurt even worse. So that’s what I’m going to work on.
So there you have it guys. My results, my thoughts and a bit disappointed on the weight but not the inches.
Thank you all for all your support and help. Thank you for answering questions when I ask them, for helping me learn the best foods to eat, the best exercise for this and that and mostly because no matter what I’ve lost or even didn’t you’d be there without a sarcastic remark. You’d be there to boost me up and keep me going. THANK YOU ALL. I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!
Take care and God Bless. Have a great day today!!!
