Well, I’m happy to report that my jeans are NOT shrinking- but I am! I lost another pound since last week. Although, I have to say, I kind of feel like I cheated this week, given the fact that I puked up my ridiculously-huge dinner on Saturday night and then didn’t really eat anything real until Monday at lunchtime. But hey- a pound is a pound, right?
I haven’t worked out since last Monday. I had grand plans to go to yoga Saturday morning, but those were thwarted by The Sick that arrived Friday night. So perhaps I’ll try for this Saturday. I’ll pencil it into my calendar.
Today was a meh day as far as eating goes. I think because I went a few days without having any desire to eat real food, now that I’m feeling better, I’m all FOOD, MORE FOOD! MUST EAT FOOD! and I had a (half-)sandwich and a bowl of French Onion soup and pretty much my whole baguette at Panera today for lunch and promptly reached my point limit for the day before dinner. Whoops. But, tomorrow is a new day.
So in total, since the day before Thanksgiving, I’ve lost (almost!) 7 pounds. I weighed 124.8 this morning, compared to 131.something when I started. Not bad. My jeans are definitely Not Tight On Me- they were freshly washed and dried, and they fit today like they do after a few days of wearing (please tell me I’m not the only one who wears jeans multiple times before washing them if they don’t actually get dirty…?) They were especially baggy in the butt. So that’s exciting!
My goal weight is 120. I’m not sure if I’ll get there, and if I do, I have my doubts as to how well I’ll be able to maintain. I think that my body is more naturally suited for 125ish as a ‘maintenance’ weight and I’ll have to REALLY be careful with what I eat if I want to stay at 120.
That being said, I’m still going to finish out the Challenge and see where I end up! It will be really awesome not to have ‘Lose some weight’ at the top of my Resolution List come January 1.
