Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Weekly Weigh-In: Down 2.4 Pounds

I'm at my lowest weight in more than 25 years. In the last 2-1/2 years, I've lost nearly 40% of my total body weight. I'm closing in fast on that 200 pound mark!

My march to Onederland (weighing under 200 lbs.) continues. Just 3 more pounds to go…Woo Hoo!!!

I expected my weight loss to slow down after last week’s big loss. With my 2.4 lbs. loss this week, I’m tipping the scales at 202.8 pounds. That’s the lowest I’ve weighed in more than 25 years. Hot damn! So far I’ve lost 122 lbs. since my little journey began — nearly 40% of my total weight gone.

Dealing With Exercise Guilt
I did a great job this week tracking my food and watching my carb count. I hated that couldn’t workout like I wanted to, but my knee is getting some much-needed rest. It’s feeling better and the swelling is almost gone. Hopefully after another week of light exercise, I can start easing my walks back into my workout routine.

I knew I was having a good week — my clothes are feeling looser on me — but cutting back on exercising was mentally challenging. More than once I needed to remind myself that exercise builds muscle, improves cardio and endurance, but has nothing to do with my weight. Whether I gain or lose weight all depends on what I eat.

To make up for my guilt about my workout schedule, I started tackling projects around the house — washing the walls, excessive dusting, cleaning vents, etc.  Tomorrow I’m painting my bedroom.

I keep my Weight Watcher Charms on my key ring. It's a great visual reminder of how far I've come. But maybe it's time for something a little more pretty and wearable.

Visual Motivation & Rewards
On my key chain I keep my Weight Watchers‘ charms. I carry them around to remind me of what I’ve accomplished. So far I have charms for losing 25, 50, 75 and 100 lbs. I am a little sad that Weight Watchers doesn’t have a charm for the 125 lbs. mark.  Nope, they go from 100 to 150 lbs.  I may have to make my own charm. Seems silly, but little rewards like these give me a mental boost.

Hmmmm….maybe I need to get myself a Pandora bracelet and start designing my own weight loss and fitness charms.
