I had my first weigh in in 3 weeks Monday night. In those 3 weeks I'd been on vacation and eating out every day, been sick and sleeping and eating all the time and on a cleanse for a bit.
I did not work out at all, in fact until the Pilates I just did while watching Bethenny on Bravo I hadn't worked out in I think 3 weeks exactly. There's been issues with not being able to breathe without coughing up a lung... and I'm finally completely over it... so I need to get back on the horse and do it.
Back to the weigh in... I ended up losing 2.6 pounds. I'd had a bit of a gain before my vacation started, so I'm right at 20 pounds again. And I'm just 2 pounds away from having lost 10% of my original body weight.
Which is pretty awesome. Obviously I still have a long way to go, but I'm pretty excited about this. I'll do an obnoxious dance around my house when it happens.
It's weird, I've been listening to all of the different leaders and members at Weight Watchers talk about how much they've lost and how long it took them to lose it... so I know it's not going to happen overnight. I'm 20 pounds down and 47 to go.
So 5 months in I'm almost a third of the way there... so I'll hopefully be at goal by my 30th birthday.
Let's do this.
