I will admit this week's weight loss is not normal for me so please do not read it and get discouraged. First I ran my first half marathon, and I had the stomach bug while doing it and still am not 100% better from it so my eating has been very little. So I actually was a bit upset I had such a huge loss because I know this means I will probably gain next week. Again losing this much weight in 1 week is not normal for me or most people my size and its probably not all that healthy.
Yes I lost 5.6 pounds this week. I was shocked, I was thinking I would hit the 150s finally but I had no idea I would really be in the middle already!!!! So yes for the first time in a long time, probably I would say middle school I weigh in the 150s!!!!!!!!!!! I am celebrating inside believe me I am but with this comes a great big fear and I will share this with you.
I realized it is time. Time to set a goal weight and stop being the biggest loser, and start maintaining. The thought of this terrifies me and makes me nervous. I worry if I will be able to stay on track, I have focused so much on losing weight and seeing results in the scale every week what happens when I do not have that to look forward to??? I will keep setting fitness goals and hope this will keep me on track. Also Weight Watchers has the lifetime member program and I hope to work for them and become a leader for a meeting or 2 so this will keep me on track.
It has been me losing for the last year, I am getting ready to switch gears to maintaining and I do not know what this will bring so for now it is the fear of the unknown I guess. More will come later on this. For now lemme switch gears to yes a new challenge!!!!!!!!!!
This challenge I am honored, lucky, humbled, to have the super awesome rock star Monica B as my partner!!! We are the MC Hammers!!! Going to hammer out this weight loss!!! She totally rocked the Power of One Challenge so I need to work my ass off to keep up with her during this next challenge!!!! I am glad I am paired up with her because I know she will keep me motivated to reach my next set of goals.
So for this challenge I began weighing 161 pounds. I hope to get to my life time goal weight for weight watchers of 150 pounds. I realize this may be possible finally after all this time with some hard work and buckling down.
I would like to lose 1 more inch with my measurements. I measured last week and will go off these numbers:
Push ups!!! I hate these guys LOL but it is part of the challenge and you know my competitve self!!! So my goal is to be able to complete 40 regular standard pushups at one time at the end of this! Right now I can do 25 before I collapse.
I hope everyone enjoys the next challenge and I am happy to be shrinking with all of you!
