I decided to join Tales from the Scales new challenge, Look Great in 2008. We weigh-in, and write weekly, posted on Tuesdays. Works well considering my weigh-in day is Tuesdays!
So I've never revealed my weight on here before. I was embarrassed for anyone in my real life (besides WW buddies) to know my weight. But you know what, my weight is just a number. It will not define me. It is one part of me, not who I am.
Tonight I weighed in, and the scale read 315.8
That puts me 11.8 pounds lost since August 21. My goal was 10 pounds by my birthday (9/22) and I surpassed that goal!
I am so proud of myself for how I'm doing. I'm choosing to immerse myself in all things healthy-lifestyle-related. I'm going to my weekly meetings, I'm checking out cookbooks & past issues of WW magazine & Cooking Light from the library, I'm reading Dr. Phil's book a bit here and there, I'm watching The Biggest Loser. I'm trying to live the healthy life, not just be on a diet. I look to these things, as well as all of your blogs for inspiration. If you can do it, I can do it! WE can do it.
Yesterday I wrote about My Story so if you're interested, feel free to check it out.
My goals for this challenge are to continue to do everything that I'm doing. I know that I will get to roadblocks at times, but my hope is to persevere, keep my chin up, and know that in the end, I will come out on top.
And my first step is that tomorrow I go back to the gym.
I've been slowly adding exercise in to my routine. I've started walking 3-5 times per week for 2 weeks in a row now. So this week, we add the gym. I may just make it 10 minutes on the elliptical, but I will try. I can't succeed if I don't try.
