Wednesday is here again. I weighed in last night at my Weight Watchers meeting as usual. I was glad I sat through the meeting because I was a little bummed out by my weigh in. No loss this week I stayed the same. I cannot even take a picture of it because I dropped my phone in the snow this morning on my way to the gym and I am waiting patiently over night hoping it dries out!
So I still weigh162.4. The total for the challenge is still 5.6lbs lost. Kind of really disappointed in myself since it has been 5 full weeks. That is only a loss of about 1.1lbs per week. I have been focusing on running a lot since my half marathon is only 25 days away and I am not sure if this focus has caused me to not focus so much on my eating. Well I guess it obviously has because my body is not dropping the weight on a consistent 2lb a week basis anymore. I am weight training 3 days a week and this can also be the reason for the slower decreases. Whatever it is, I want to dig more into it. I guess the closer I am coming to goal the more impatient I am getting.
I was hoping to hit 100 pounds lost in total by my 1 year healthy journey anniversary on February 24th. It does not look like I will reach this goal and I am a bit upset by this. Again I know I should be happy I have lost 90.2lbs to date and I am on the right track I am down from a size 18 to a size 4. I am running an average of 20 miles a week. I am doing so good at everything else I just am not seeing those big losses on the scale right now.
I always see so many of you hating the scale and saying do not focus on it as much so I am going to put faith in you all and try try my hardest not to. It is just aggravating when you are so close to goal but it takes forever to reach it. I will not let these final few pounds keep me down! I am looking forward to taking my measurements at the end of this challenge and seeing how many inches I lost. Hopefully it is better than the physical numbers on the scale.
