Here's what staying 100% focused and on plan does for my body ... I drop 6 pounds in one week!
Wuhoo! I'm down to 192.something which is the lowest I've been thus far. After my trip-up the last couple weeks, I feel that I'm back and ready to kick this weight loss thing into high gear.
It got me thinking though about how easy it is to throw myself off plan and how easily I can quickly add in calories without even thinking about it. How many times have I said to myself "oh, it's just a couple extra bites of cottage cheese" or "one teeny tiny extra serving of starch won't matter too much".
Obviously it matters. My body tells me it matters by not dropping the weight.
I can offer every kind of excuse in the book as to why I'm not losing weight one week (extra workouts, water retention, girlie stuff, etc.) but the reality is that most of the time (granted not all the time), I don't lose the weight because I'm taking liberates I might not even be aware of.
I'm in the home stretch on this whole weight loss thing. I've only got another 35 pounds to lose.
Wow. 35 pounds. That's incredible. That's so within reach. That's doable. After losing 115, 35 is a drop in the bucket.
Today I'm repeating those statements to myself over and over and over and over and hoping that they keep me centered, focused, and 100% on plan so that I can kick the rest of this weight off my body!
