The good part of my day. 153.4

I haven't stepped on the scale in about two weeks. I had been working consistently but I got sick and then there was the birthday eating and drinking so I pretty much did not want to face the scale. I got back into the swing of working out and decided to step back on the scale this morning. It read 153.4. This is a huge deal for me. I've been stuck around 156 for a while and suddenly when I take a step back I drop 3 pounds.

I'm sure my stomach problems have contributed a little bit. I've been trying to eat smaller meals to avoid acid reflux and my appetite has not been its normal ravenous self but I think the consistent exercise since the end of November is a factor as well.

When I started I was about 160 and its been very slow going. It's tough to stay motivated when results are not quick but knowing that GERD can be greatly helped by weight loss has really kept me going. My pants fitting a little loser (finally!!) also gives a little boost.

The ultimate goal is between 135-140. I need to focus on cleaning up my diet more so I can reach my goal of 149 by the time I go to St. Thomas at the end of April.

But today I'm celebrating 153.4!

  4. Just happened upon your blog... and yay for you!!! I've been having a hard time losing weight lately. I lost 50lbs overall, but I need to drop another 5 by 4/26 (my wedding) and ideally another 10-15b so I can also be in the same range as you. Currently I'm just about at 152. Good luck! Going to add you to Bloglovin!
