Last week I got a little depressed about not losing at least 2 pounds. I know I should be proud of 1.4 pounds but when you have so much weight to lose you really want to see it come off a little faster than a pound at a time. I desperately want to be below 200 pounds! UGH! Instead of letting it get me down I decided to try even more. I upped my exercise and decided to work out a little longer and a little harder. I continued to eat healthy - although I did have one splurge this week - sushi (it's my kryptonite). I didn't overdo it but I came close! I have to allow myself the occasional sushi day in order to stay on track, otherwise I feel like I'm being deprived.
Now onto this week's weigh in...
Current weight: 248.4
Last week's weight: 250
Difference: -1.6 lbs
Total lost: -18.6 lbs
I also decided to take my measurements to see how many inches I've lost. I measured myself on 12/17/10 and since then I have lost the following:
Arms: -1" (-.5" from each arm)
Thighs: -1" (-.5" from each thigh)
Total: -7.75" GONE!!!
While I admit I'm still a little frustrated that I didn't lose at least 2 pounds, I'm happy that I've lost so many inches, especially from my hips! I think at this point I'm going to give up hope on losing 2 pounds a week because it hasn't happened for so long despite all my hard work to make it happen! I'm losing weight and that's what is more important!
