Weigh In

This was an interesting week for me. On Monday, I had my first off-plan day after 35 days on plan. I posted what I ate in an evening binge, and then I stayed off the scale all week until this morning. I stayed on plan all week, ate yummy healthy stuff like lots of salads, steamed asparagus, cucumbers, mushrooms, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, salmon, chicken, eggs, and steak. I felt great this week! Last week I weighed 183, and today I weighed 181. Two pounds gone this week! Good enough for me! The last time I weighed 181 was in February. I am very close to a new low weight. My last update pictures... 100 pounds gone... are only 3 pounds lower than I am now. And the lowest weight I have reached in the last 15ish years is 175, back in October. Only 7 pounds to a new low! And what I am looking forward to the most is taking my 110 Pounds Gone pictures and measurements. That will be exciting.

I am busy today tracking with my dog, shopping with my daughter for items needed for this medical trip we are taking, as well as a few final preparations for a birthday party we are having when we get back home. Tonight's dinner will be 5 ounces of leftover steak sliced over a big salad of Romaine, spring mix, tomatoes, peppers, and whatever other veggies I can find in the fridge. See you tomorrow!

I'm really happy to see your continuing progress down (again) those numbers.

I just updated my ticker to 110 pounds lost, and I have 3.6 more pounds to be NOT OBESE anymore. I lose more slowly than you do (and I do eat more calories, as I've been doing closer to 1400 lately), but I'll get there. It is exciting, yes? Milestones are great.

Happy Sunday!

Awesome, Lyn. Keep up doing what you love, eating what you love that's part of your new healthy lifestyle.

Princess Dieter, I'm about 1 BMI point about a month or less away from being classified as just 'overweight" instead of obese. So fun to celebrate during this journey.

Amazing!!!!

Here's the thing that I love about all of this. You're living proof that this weight loss journey thing is really tough. And maybe you hit a little bump in the road over the last few months. But you didn't just "let yourself go"...you know, 10lbs of gain turning into 20lbs, turning into 60! You actually held onto it. That's what life is all about: knowing how to turn it around when things start to feel out of control.

So proud, you go girl!
