Week 11 Weigh-In

219 lbs.

Despite a challenging week, I came away with a good loss, and that's a big relief.  I think I was more active overall, and so I'm going to keep up the light exercise and stay the course with my eating and water intake.

I'm also getting Spring fever like crazy!  The weather has been beautiful, which isn't saying much since I live in San Diego, and I took a quick peek at the Burpee website.  I'm now getting excited about planting my garden in the next couple of weeks.  I do this knowing full well that I may not be able to eat what is grown until well into the summer/early fall.  It's weird, but my family will still eat well as a result.

I'm actually coming to terms with my fluctuating weight loss progress.  I've spent quite some time trying to project when I might reach my goal.  As my weight loss slows or speeds up, I feel my emotions take the roller coaster ride.  I'm finally stepping back and confessing to myself, that I may not reach my goal before my sister's big birthday party in August.  So what?  It might actually be nice to postpone eating during another big family gathering, so that I don't have to be tempted.  I think I'm okay with that prospect.

I'm really focused on actually reaching my goal in what ever amount of time it takes.  While I'm thrilled with the impact from this initial weight loss, I know that I have a long way to go still, and want to make it all the way this time.

I hope everyone is having a nice week and feeling a little Springish as well!  We can do this!

You have such a healthy outlook! I especially commend you for being okay with potentially not reaching your goal before that August family event. These things are not only contributing to your success now but also after you're done with the products. Awesome!

Thank you Kathy! I'm sure it will get more difficult to "stay the course" after much longer on the product, but I'll try and re-read posts like this so that I might get my resolve back, if it's lagging.
