My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Weekly Weigh-In: I’m Down 5 Pounds

Feeling optimistic that my motivation is back. I'm down 5 lbs. this week. Next week's weigh in is the real test.

I won’t say I got my weight loss back on track just yet. I’ve had my share of 5+ lbs. losses in a week only to find I’m up 6 lbs. the next. I need to see some consistency, so next week’s weigh is more important. In my mind I need to go below 210 before I start thinking I’ve righted this ship.

But I will say I’ve seen a noticeable difference in my attitude and motivation. I’m feeling confident again.

Nonetheless I’m still celebrating the loss. Five pounds in a week is big. It’s only fitting that I celebrate with a 1.63-mile interval run and a 4-mile walk. If I do well at my next Weight Watchers meeting, I’ll celebrate with a mani and pedi (after a 2 mile run of course).

What Did I Do Differently?

I tracked everything. Every bite, lick and chew. It was the first time in a while I knew I didn’t go over 20g of carbs a day.

Also I have to hand it to my little Fitbit. I worked out 6 days this week. I didn’t always hit my 10,000-steps/day goal, but this little sucker got me moving even more. On the days I worked out, I’m more mindful of what I’m eating. It keeps me mentally in the weight loss game.

I can honestly say the Fitbit is a great motivational tool for me.
