I know I've mentioned several times that I want/need to lose weight. The amount I've wanted to lose has also fluctuated quite a bit as I seemed to of gained quite a few pounds towards the middle of this stupid deployment.
I've decided that I'm finally ready to really lose this weight, so I can be super sexy when my husband comes home. The other thing I've been contemplating is actually discussing numbers. I was already to discuss the number of pounds I've lost but what my actual weight was took a lot more convincing on my part.
It wasn't until last week that I finally told my husband what my true weight was! And now I'm finally ready to share with everyone else too.
I know most people weigh in on a Sunday or Monday but I've decided to do it on Friday's. I know that I generally "cheat" more on the weekends and don't want that Monday number to discourage me.
So here is where I currently stand:
Starting Weight ??? (I was afraid of the number so I didn't weigh in till the end of week 1)
Week 1 ??? (145.6)
Week 2 -3 lbs (142.6)
Week 3 -2 lbs (140.6)
Week 4 -1 lbs (139.6)
Week 5 -1.4 lbs (138.2)
Total loss so far 7.4 lbs!
I know this isn't a huge amount but I feel good about it. I'm not starving myself and I'm still treating myself to one Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee a week and generally one meal at a fast food restaurant during the course of the weekend.
I have 13.2 more pounds to loose but at this rate, I'm hopeful that I'll almost be where I want to be when my husband gets home!
(P.S. In case anyone is wondering - I'm short - I'm only 5'1")
