Weigh In Number 6
Sunday morning again. Weighed myself and I am down to 106kg (the scale flirted with 105.9 a few times but the final resting place was 106kg). Not too bad I guess. It's a loss of 600gm since last Saturday morning...and since a whole weekend of pretty much eating what I wanted. I guess it would have been a kilo if not for those few birthday days.
That makes a total weight loss of just under 5 kilos. It has taken longer than I had hoped (6 weeks) but I havent been ridiculously insane about it. Maybe I need to be?
My first goal is to get to 99kg. I have not been under 100kg for about 6 years. So that will be a milestone. I worked out, going by my current loss rate, it will take another 7-8 weeks
So, about August 22nd. It feels like a long time away but then, I guess, this way of eating is for life
- in all senses of the term. I am hoping I will stay motivated to get to that point --- and beyond!
My OH's birthday is October 15. I would REALLY like to be 90kilos by then. But part of me is scared to put that in my ticker/signature (or even commit to it in my head) in case I fail. I was thinking maybe I would put the 95kg goal for that date, but then that seems like I am being slack, or going too easy on myself. It's hard to know whether to do so would be setting myself up for success or a big let down
On the upside I have started moving more. On my exercise bike and using the wii fit. Yesterday I did 36 minutes on the wii (aerobic) and 20 on the bike. That might not seem like much to the gym bunnies out there, but it's a fair bit for me. I have used the wii for three days now and I am planning on using it again today. I figure it's better than nothing. I have been stuck inside at home for the past few days. My little one has chicken pox and it has been pouring rain. Honestly, not going to work and getting out has made me a little stir crazy!
I have also been doing a lot of research on weight loss and exercise (ie. how many calories to burn, etc). I am a great believer in the term - Knowledge is Power. Hopefully my knowledge will help power my legs when they feel like giving up on the exercise bike
Anyway, sorry for the rant - like I said, stir crazy! I hope everyone is doing well, reaching their goals and staying happy!
