I cannot believe we are almost at the end of the challenge!!!!!!!!!!
I have loved doing this challenge as I have come to love all the Sisterhood challenges because it kept me going even when I did not feel like going. I am kind of disappointed that the challenge is ending next week and I did not hit my weight loss goal I set for myself during kick off. I just looked at this post today and cannot believe I did not even come close to my weight loss goal! I wanted to lose 18lbs and be at a healthy BMI weight. Well Since we began I am down 7.2lbs. Very very far off.
It was a rough week numbers wise only a .4lb loss. I had an OK training week got in 7 hours or working out and burned 2455 calories. I got myself some new jeans which was exciting, I was shopping in the junior department! I could not believe that!!! I got a pair of jeans size 5/6 :) I normally stick to the woman's department but the juniors department has such cute stuff sometimes I cannot resist it! Plus in woman's the size 4s are becoming lose and the size 2s are a lil too snug so I am in between sizes there. I cannot wait till I am at goal and can just get into clothes and sink some money into them and stop sizing out. I am not complaining about shrinking, just the cost of looking good LOL
I am getting ready for my half marathon in less than 2 weeks! Eeek!!! So I am not sure if training for it has slowed my loss or what but I hope to get to goal sometime soon! I want to get to 145 so I can become a lifetime Weight Watchers member. I am just getting frustrated with making it there it seems like it is taking forever. And really for me it is. It has taken me 6 weeks to lose 7 pounds. My old average was about 8 pounds per month. So my weight loss has slowed down quite a bit this year. I know slow and steady wins the race so I need to just remind myself this more and more everyday.
How was your week? Are you excited for the challenge to end next week and measure your progress? I am getting excited to measure my inches and see if all this hard work is paying off!
