The Final Countdown: Week 3

in Weight Loss

Technically, I suppose, this should be somewhere around week ten in my “final countdown” journey. I haven’t done a weight loss update since early August. Much like with everything else in my life, weight wasn’t really a priority these last couple months.

Last update (August 4):  155.2
This week: 155.4 (+0.2)
Pounds to goal: 22.4

Honestly, I felt certain these last several weeks had undone at least some of the progress I’ve made thus far in 2017. While I had no reason to believe it based on how my clothes fit, my lack of effort in the diet and exercise front didn’t set me up for success. How I only gained two-tenths of a pound is absolutely beyond me. I was truly expecting something closer to five pounds.

In a non-scale victory, I pulled all of my dress pants out of my closet this weekend. I’ve worn dresses and skirts to work since May, so I haven’t tried them on. I was pleasantly surprised how baggy they all were! I put them all in my donation box and it was such a good feeling.

The Final Countdown: Week 3

My biggest success for the last several weeks was, honestly, just not gaining a bunch of weight back. While I feel confident my behaviors didn’t justify my results, I am taking the win and running with it.

My biggest struggle for the last several weeks was motivation to eat well and to exercise. But, I wasn’t in a place where weight loss was a priority, so it’s okay.

My goal for this week is simply to be more intentional about eating better and moving more. Those are very vague goals, but I want to start small now that I’m in a place where I’m, once again, ready to make progress towards my goal weight.
