Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

May 3 Weigh-In: Down 3 Pounds

Awesome! For the first time in weeks I feel back on track. This is what happens when you track your food!

Awesome! For the first time in weeks I feel back on track. This is what happens when you track your food!

After a week of successfully tracking my meals, my weight started moving in the right direction once again. I dropped 3 pounds this week. I do plan to celebrate…by going on a run.

I now weigh 214 pounds, for a total weight loss of 111 pounds. I did set a short-term goal to weigh 200 pounds by the end of May. I hoped to reach the 200-pound mark by the end of April, but thanks to a plateau, that didn’t happen.

So I pushed that short-term goal back to the end of May. It’s a tall order after the 5 pound gain over the last couple of weeks. I’ll need to lose an average of 3.5 pounds a week for that to happen. I’ll do my best, but I’m not going to starve myself.

Overall I have 74 more pounds to lose to reach my goal weight of 140 pounds. I think it’s realistic for me to reach goal by year’s end. Keeping my focus and not cutting corners with my good eating habits are key.

  1. That is so awesome! Do you do rewards for small goals or anything like that? You’re getting so close to Onederland!

    • I do reward small goals. I’m trying to do rewards that help re-enforce my healthy lifestyle — new running shoes or workout clothes, new makeup. For the major milestones I try to do something special like a day spa. When I hit the 200 pound mark, I’m thinking the hubby and I may try for a romantic weekend backpacking trip to the Shenandoah Valley.

  2. Grats on the nice loss. Tracking really does make a difference I think.

    • Thanks Kitty! And tracking really does make a difference. We were talking at my Weight Watchers meeting about plateaus and 90% of the causes for plateaus is a loosening of our good eating habits. Tracking is the one habit that goes first for me. After 2 years of eating smart, I think there is a part of my brain that turns on once and says, “No need to track. I got this.” Sure enough I either stop losing weight (plateau) or start gaining. At least I recognize it and know how to fix it.
