Look Great in 2008 Week 6

This week was a great week for me.

I tried on two pairs of pants (jeans & work pants) that I previously was unable to button. And they fit! That was a huge milestone for me, especially b/c the jeans were size 22s, and the last time I was in 22s, it took me until I was about 30 pounds lighter than I am now before I fit in them. So it was a shock, but a great shock.

I also went back to the gym this week. It felt great to push what I felt my limits were. Running on the elliptical for over 30 minutes when I haven't run in months was such a feat! Once I get past about 15 minutes, it's not as hard... but those first 15, I wanna quit! I do the fat burner program, so it alternates between low & high intensity. It's quite the workout.

My week ended on a high note as well when I went to my WW meeting this morning. I usually go Tuesday evenings, but I had to work late tonight, so I made sure to go this morning instead. I was down an astonishing 6 pounds. That's insane! Especially to lose that much in my 10th week on the program! Last week, my total lost was up to 19.8, so this week's loss made me hit my 20 pound mark AND my 25 pound mark! So I am at a total of 25.8 pounds lost in 2 months.

The greatest feeling will be when I no longer see a "3" in front of my weight. Right now I am at 301.8, so I'm pretty close to being out of this "century". I hate to get my hopes up, especially after a week w/such a big loss, but I really hope to see that "2" next week!

My personal reward for 25 pounds lost was to buy new workout clothes. So, tonight I went out and purchased myself a new gym outfit! It's just a pair of black workout pants & a cute pink t-shirt w/hearts all over it. See for yourself:

Angie All The Way said...

Congratulations!!!!!!! That's sooo awesome and an awesome reward too!

I found that I liked doing the exercise classes a little better than the cardio machines when I was close to your weight. Step class ended up being my favourite and earned me like 13 AP's!

GREAT JOB!!! It is so fantastic that you are consistently losing such big numbers (I am secretly jealous!). You have accomplished so much and changed your life in such a short time.

I feel you, because I am about to get out of the 190s, and you are about to get out of the 300s! we each have little over a pound to lose to be in a happy space. For me, its to get further away from 200.

looove the pink workout tee. You will look smoking at the gym (which will be great cuz Mike will be with you!)

Lauren said...

Aren't new clothes da bomb? I didn't lose as much as you, and I still just ordered me new active wear from Junonia because I needed a SMALLER SIZE. No more 4x. And mostly no more 3x. I actually fit into a few of their 2x sizes. :D

I love getting new clothes!

Hey, your hair is down in this pic! And you know, your tummy doesn't stick out like mine. (I have that stupid abdominal fat issue.) You got back, girl! (Rump? Booty?) My booty is not all that impressive. Wide and big, yeah, but not nice and roundy out. It's like, square? I so want a girly-roundy-pert booty. Sigh.

25 lbs is a great milestone. Keep going!
