In case you haven’t been following my experiment on Instagram, this was my “final” weigh-in this morning:
|sorry for the blurriness|
Not quite 207, but close enough to where I’m not gonna get down on myself. Yesterday I ate turkey, rolls, cornbread stuffing, green bean casserole, and mashed potatoes and gravy. It was a wonderful birthday dinner, and I feel really great about the progress I’ve made from where I started.
So where do I go from here? I’ve been saying since I started that this was just a short term goal for me. I wanted to get myself in a healthier place, making better choices and building good habits. I feel like I’ve made progress on that, but still with a long way to go. So here are my next goals:
• Don’t get above 210 before January 2014
• Keep waking up at 6
• Keep exercising every day
I’ll keep weighing myself, but I’m just gonna do one weekly weigh in on Monday mornings. Now, you may think it strange that my goal is just to not gain weight, instead of continuing to lose it. But we’re headed full steam into the holiday season, and not gaining weight is pretty darn ambitious for me. I would actually like to end up around 190 eventually, but we’ll leave that to the new year.
Lastly, I just want to thank all of you for your continued support and encouragement. Changing negative, life-long habits is always difficult, but it’s been so nice hearing that so many of you are going through similar things and to hear of your successes.
So now, I guess the only thing left to do is get crackin’ on the (controlled) holiday celebrating! Can’t wait to share with all of you the awesome food we have planned, and hopefully help you rock out the holiday meals as well.
