I know my official weigh-in day is Monday, but today is the second day in a row that the scale has read:
And I'm gonna celebrate that NOW! To hell with waiting four days! I have been thinking that Monday is a pretty suck-ass weigh-in day anyway! Bring on Thursdays!
So this brings to an end my first goal of getting to 170. I decided a month ago or so that I would like to try for 160. This is for a couple reasons.
1. I still feel like the sort of central, belly, middle area of my body needs some help. Gotta do me some more gut reduction. I know that even if I lose 10 lbs, the weight might not come off there, but it's a chance I'm willing to take.
2. I know that in my maintenance mode my weight will likely fluctuate as I figure out what I need to do to stay healthy and around my goal weight. I would love to have a buffer zone within which I will still feel fit and comfortable.
Many people have asked me, so what if you reach 160 and still aren't happy? Well, to be honest, I don't know! All I know is that I am going to keep working out, try some weight training and running. If I do this, and I lose more weight, then so be it! Weight loss won't be my focus at 160 though. I really want to just tone muscle and increases my fitness at that point.
So 10 more to go, people! Whoooo!
