Autumn has arrived! Which means that life is back to normal – school’s in, my schedule is busy, and obligations abound. But I won’t use those as excuses to slack on my goals. The great thing about fall is that the weather is cooler and there are no holidays or other social commitments to derail me from strictly adhering to my food and workout plan. I’m determined that fall 2012 will be when I achieve my pre-surgery weight loss goal. Since weekday mornings are hectic, I’m moving my weigh-in day to Sunday. Sundays are the perfect day to weigh in because I don’t have any other morning obligations and can focus on my weight loss. Plus, Sunday weigh-ins will keep me accountable through the weekend. Throughout the fall, I’ll be giving Sunday progress updates called Fabulous Fall Weigh-Ins.
Week 8 on Jenny felt like second nature. I feel really dialed in to the entire program, and have gotten into a good groove. I didn’t workout quite as much as I should have, although I did go to Bikram yoga two times. I got my water in most days, but not all of them. When I stepped onto the scale this morning, I felt like I’d lost, but didn’t have good idea of exactly how much.
This morning I weighed in at 297.2.This is a loss of 5.2 lbs this week! Which means I have 16 pounds to go to reach the pre-surgery requirement. This loss was a welcome surprise! I didn’t do anything particularly spectacular this week, which means that in a very ordinary week extraordinary things can happen. I plan on doing more of the same this week. Now I have my sights set on whizzing through the 290s to get into the 280s. I feel so excited, so confident, and I know that I’ll have made it to my mini goal before I know it.
Until next Sunday, my friends. I hope the scale treats you well, and that you have a wonderful week!
