(You can read #1 from last week here.)
So today was weighing-in day for the Challenge, and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I lost another 2 pounds, making my weight this morning 125. I have lost a total of 6 pounds since the day before Thanksgiving, which makes me want to do a little dance around the room.
I’m a bit shocked at how quickly it has come off so far, partly because during the last 2 weeks I had 2 Thanksgiving dinners and about a bazillion cookies appear at my house. But I’ve been behaving myself pretty well. I haven’t deprived myself of anything I really wanted (like, I WANTED- no, NEEDED- a Snickers brownie yesterday after lunch.), however that first week was really tough because I was hungry basically all day long. But my body adjusted last week and since then, it hasn’t been too bad. I’m also drinking TONS of water.
I still haven’t stayed within my daily points on any given day, which apparently hasn’t mattered too much, but today I just might. Between breakfast and lunch today I’ve only eaten 9 points, so I have 11 left for dinner! I might even HAVE to eat a cookie tonight, ha! What a tough problem to have…
I also went to yoga again on Monday night (still sore from it, ow ow ow, damn you Power Yoga!). It was one of those nights where really all I wanted to do was stay home in my pajamas and NOT go out into the cold after dark, but I made myself go anyway and I felt so refreshed after my workout.
One thing I wish I had done before I started this was take some measurements in addition to weighing myself. My pants are already fitting SO much better, and my bras too. I don’t have numbers to look at, but just buttoning my dress pants this morning (size SIX!) and not feeling like I’m getting cut in half let me know that I’m definitely on the right track.
5 more pounds to go! Think I can do it before 2009?
