Thursday Weigh Day (Jennifer)

This week involved some ice cream and even some smores.  But I believe that I deserve these things in moderation.  I am counting calories and exercising more than I ever have in my life.  Today's weight: 161.  That is a loss of 2.5 from last week and a total loss for me of 65.5 lbs.  Wow.  When I looked and saw what my weight was last week I got all excited because of the loss.  Initially I had a slight disappointment that I didnt see the 150's.  But that is ridiculous.  I am making progress and eventually some day I will see a 5 and be thrilled!  I may need to readjust my end goal.  I was hoping for around 140ish but only time will tell what my body will allow.  I set that goal well before I was even out of the 200's.  I have gained so much strength both mentally and physically through this journey.  I have learned so much about myself and for the first time since I cant even remember when I have a little self pride.  And afterall, this is what the REAL goal was right?

Have a great day :)

Excellent!! As long as you're seeing progress you are totally succeeding!! You are at the weight where it's not going to just fly off as fast either. Plus with exercising and gaining some muscle, it would be completely normal to stay the same weight but still be making progress for a while. Keep it up!

Awesome! I'm so happy for you. I can hear the happiness in your words! You are doing so well. WOW! You really have the thing figured out as to how much you can eat and how much you need to exercise to lose. That's great. I wish I could figure that out and I hope to once I need to figure it out I can! :)

That is wonderful! Congrats on a great loss this week and your overall sucess. I like how you recognize the important things, not just the # on the scale but how you feel about yourself. You deserve to feel proud!

Thank you so much for sharing it.
This simple to use scale can not only track your weight loss, it can also act as a motivator. Many diets fail because of a lack of motivation. You have finally decided to loose some weight, you have been eating all the right things and taking exercise.

Big CONGRATS on your loss!! So awesome.

So what is your height?

My goal is 135 and I am 5' 3"... as I get closer, I guess I see if that is a reasonable goal but I am still hoping, or dreaming big. :)
