Yep. Happy day! Besides the sickly feelings.

Should have written down the sets and everything, but I didn’t, so I forgot. I want to keep better track of my workout so I can see improve. That will be my goal for next week. Write it all down!
Hurray! I’m back on track and down to 211. Now this week I just need to pass that and say goodbye forever to this weight. I’m ready to officially be 40 lbs down for good. I’ve flirted with having lost 40 lbs for a while now. I just want to get past it and keep going. I didn’t count the last time I hit it and I’m sorta glad, because it didn’t stick. This time when I pass it, it’s going to stick.
This week was pretty great. I worked out every week day and I ate pretty well up until the weekend. It seemed so easy during the week too. That felt really good. Then Friday I realized how easy everything felt and it sorta fell apart after that in regards to overeating and emotional eating the past two days. Still, even with that happening I lost 1.8 lbs! Woohoo!
I met up with a friend the other day that I hadn’t seen in a while and he commented on how much weight I’ve lost and how I look different now. It was kind of surprising to me. Because I’m losing weight slowly I don’t see or feel any abrupt changes. I actually like the several weeks I’ve spent around this weight because it gave me time to get used to it. When you have a lot of weight to lose it seems like if you lose it fast you completely change yourself and your life without giving yourself time to adjust mentally for that change. This time around I’m going slow and letting my body and my mind adjust to the changes. So I hardly even notice them but for people who haven’t seen me in a while, it’s a huge change.
Like I said, I adjusted and got comfortable at about 212 lbs. That’s nice and all but it’s not the big goal. The first BIG goal is just 11ish pounds away from me. Just 11!! That seems like such a small number right now. So I’m excited to get back to work and finally make it happen.
How was your week?
