Next week, I will DEFINITELY hit the 10 pound loss mark!! I'm determined. This is all going a lot slower than I figured. I know there's no magical pill and that this can't happen overnight, but it's been 7 weeks and I've only lost 8 pounds. Granted, this is with at least 3 gains in there, so overall, 8 pounds isn't so bad. I just wish it could be a little more.
I've started two a day workouts. Once at the gym then once at home. I really like it--makes me feel empowered and good, like I have total control over my body and weight.
I've realized that I can't skip weigh-ins anymore. It's just a way of avoiding gains, which isn't good. This is only going to work if I can be completely honest with myself!! A gain is a gain and a loss is a loss. Sure, I'd rather see the loss...but if I gain, that allows me to go back and look at where I went wrong that week. If I lie to myself about the gain, then I'll miss the opportunity to look back and rethink my actions.
So take note that next week = 276!! It's time to hit that 10 pound mark!! And hopefully, once the first 10 are gone, the rest will just start to fall in place and come off as well!!
