Hi guys. Sorry I didn't update yesterday, but I have a good excuse: I'm sick. I've been battling a cold since Sunday but it's the kind of cold that just knocks me out, so I spent yesterday sleeping. (Seriously. I got to bed about 4:30 am Wednesday morning - after work! - and between then and 11:30 pm, I was awake for about six hours.)
I did manage to fit in a weigh-in during those brief waking hours but I didn't have it in me to blog. I'm feeling better today and I'm back at work, so if I can work I can blog, right?
Here's how I did:
Last week: 186.0 lb
This week: 185.6 lb
Total lost this week: 0.4 lb
Weight loss target: 181.8 lb
To reach target: 3.8 lb
I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting a loss at all. I had little exercise this past week and I felt like I was eating constantly, never mind the Southern food dinner I had Saturday night at book club (we read To Kill a Mockingbird, so Southern food was a must!).
Still, any amount lost is a loss and it counts. And now that I'm only 3.8 lb away from my next target, I'm aiming for Four Pounds in Four Weeks. Losing a pound a week is not only completely possible but reasonable and healthy and it helps break down these last four pounds before my goal.
And it just so happens that July 4 will be the scheduled day I'll hit my target, so it's Four Pounds in Four Weeks by July 4th. How great is that!
May the 4th be with me!
