Wednesday Weigh In
I’m actually writing this post on Tuesday morning, because I’ll be in New York City Wednesday recovering from a girls’ night seeing Rick Springfield in concert. Woohoo for me!
Six days from my last weigh in and I am down only slightly, 0.2 lbs. I’m a little disappointed to be honest. I had a good week. We had dinner at my cousin’s on Sunday, and while that normally turns into a night of drinking and poor choices, I was very careful, drank tons of water, and didn’t overindulge. It was great practice for the upcoming week.
That being said, I had a big “Non Scale Victory” (NSV) yesterday. I was reaching in the back of my closet for clothes, because some of my usual choices are actually getting a little too big. I pulled out a pair of pants that I haven’t been able to wear in four and a half years (I know, because the last time I wore them was to see Rick Springfield and that was in April, 2009). They were snug then. I remember I weighed somewhere within five pounds of where I am now, so I thought, let me try them.
They fit perfectly, even a little on the looser side. I couldn’t believe it. It was a great sign that while my weight is slowly moving, my body is changing shape from all of the bootcamp workouts I have been doing. I still am really enjoying the classes. And I am still running on my off days. So that was a big win for me going into the coming week.
People have been telling me that they can see that I am losing, and I often will push it aside knowing that it isn’t “that much”. But it was nice to get that reinforcement in my clothes yesterday.
In the next six days I will have the challenge of: restaurant meals (today in NYC!), traveling via plane, TWO Thanksgiving meals (one with husband’s family, one with mine) and then a wedding on Saturday. My goal is to make smart choices and enjoy the meals. I would love to simply just maintain. I do plan on exercising while traveling. It’s going to be a challenge, but my head is in a good place right now, so I think I’ll be OK.
Current Week: -0.2 lbs
Total Weight Left To Lose: 13 lbs
