It’s Winter! Which means that the weather turns chilly and a new year is just beginning. This year the period from January through March is going to be a Winter Wonderland for me – a time to focus on my weight loss and to finally, once-and-for-all achieve my pre-surgery weight loss requirement. Sunday weigh-ins will keep me accountable through the weekend, and will give me a positive goal to begin each new week. This is the time of year resolutions are made and then quickly forgotten, but not with me. I’m going to use this season to refresh my outlook, because I’m embarking on more than just a diet plan, I’m going to establish a lifestyle. My Sunday progress updates will be called Winter Wonderland Weigh-Ins.
Week 6 was a good one. I got workouts in, got back on track, and made an exciting decision.
This morning I weighed in at 299.8, which is up 1 pound from last week. I know that this isn’t a true gain, though, because I’ve been doing well all week – I got solid workouts in and stuck to my food plan, for the most part. My sister and I did go out for sushi last night, and whenever I eat anything with soy sauce, I always have a bit of a gain. I went to sushi as a “last meal” of sorts. This weight is coming off next week, I’m sure of it, and here’s why:
I can’t wait to see what I can do in a week’s time! I’m going to continue working out, as well.
Sunday: vinyasa yoga (done)
Monday: rest day
Tuesday: gym: elliptical/bike
Wednesday: aqua aerobics
Thursday: gym: elliptical/bike
Friday: gym: elliptical/bike
The first three days are going to be challenging, because I’m going to feel hungry, but after that, it should be smooth sailing. Plus, once I see the great results on the scale, I know it will spur me on to continue. I’m also really lucky that I have so many supportive people in my life; people that I know I can text throughout the day to get me out of my own head and staying strong.
I’m proud of myself for being willing to make the changes I need to in order to accomplish my goals.
Until next Sunday, my friends. I hope the scale treats you well, and that you have a wonderful week!
