I'm down to 209 which is just 2 pounds shy of my 100 pound mark.
As I posted previously, I'm so anxious to get to 100! And right after I hit 100 I'll be setting myself up for new numbers ... down below 200 pounds for the first time in years.
Being 2 pounds short of the 100 pound mark is actually quite annoying! On the one hand I'm excited I had a four pound loss in one week. On the other hand, wouldn't it have been nice if the drop was six pounds and be at the 100 pound reward???? I mean, come on darn body! Let's get it together and get it done already!
Yes ... yes .... you're right. I need to practice patience.
And this is most definitely a lesson for me in patience. The last three weeks have been up, down, all around and sideways. I've been up 1.6 then down 1.6 then nothing and now down 4. Let me tell ya, I much prefer the going down part!
I really think my body is staging a revolt because I've kicked the exercise up a notch. I'm now walking and/or jogging at least 5x's per week, strength training 3x's per week, and adding in a hike or bike and horse ride when possible on the weekends. That's a lot of working out for someone that doesn't like to sweat!
Even though I've had a couple tough weeks in terms of the numbers, I don't plan to stop the workouts. It's tempting, but I like that I'm reshaping my body at the same time as losing the weight.
Here's something neat ... Did you know I have a muscle in my leg? I mean, really, it used to be hard to tell. Now it kinda sorta pops out when I flex it. Coooooooooool. See, workin' out is doing good stuff for me even if the pounds aren't coming off quite as quickly as I'd like!
So, I think I'll chill out on the 100 pound stress and just let my body do what it's going to do. I'm eating the right foods in the right amounts and expending the right amount of energy so that means I should be setting myself up for success.
I'm going to trust that's the truth and stop stressing!
