Day 54:199

This is my 300th post. WOW. I looked back over the past year and it seems like it all happened just yesterday! One thing I did look up was what I weighed last year at the NFR.. 211.. ahhhh, so I am already 14 pounds lighter. But I still have 4 weeks to lose more.. and I will, yes, I will!!

Today is one of my rest days, but I felt a little fidgety this morning so I hopped on the treadmill and walked for 30 minutes. Nothing intense, but enough to break a sweat. I am up 2 pounds, but if you look at weight over the past couple of months you will see that I am always at my heaviest in the middle of the week. I know many of you hate the idea of weighing yourself everyday, but I have to say that I have learned a lot about how my body reacts to certain things. I also have realised that I was getting discouraged before because I would see such drastic gains and losses...(ie: +2 lbs in one day).. I would see that and think I was a failure. Now I know that by Monday I will lose another pound... I know they say that 'Slow and steady wins the race' but good grief, I am not that patient!! But I guess I have to be to do what I'm doing. Here is how I look at it.. even if I only lose 1 lb a week.. I will still be ~23 lbs lighter by my 30th birthday in April.. which would make me 174... that is a heck of a lot better then 215!!!

On a different note.. Cory tagged my with a meme... here you go!!

Keep at it, it can be frustrating thinking about the time it takes to lose. I find that journaling my foods helps. I hope that you have an excellent week coming up and that you are able to make that steady progress that you want to see so that by your birthday you are ready to celebrate your loss!

When I lose slowly I have to keep telling myself "you didn't gain the weight overnight, you can't lose it overnight." :)
