It is official..I lost another pound so that adds up to: -2.4 in a week!!!! I am so very excited that I broke my plateau and that the Take Off I did was worth it. That brings me to over 15 pounds lost, and 192 pounds!!!
Last week I challenged myself to eat well over the weekend. I did. I went out to a restaurant and enjoyed the food choices I made while still eating healthy.
I also worked hard for this loss. I increased my water intake, tried a new recipe, made some other recipes, and did Take Off. And the results were worth it: In 5 days I lost 3 pounds!! Too bad I had gone up last Friday so my loss isnt exactly 3, but I am still proud.
Next week I plan on replacing a meal for 5 days with a meal replacement shake to max my benefits from Take Off. I also challenge myself to get more activity. I plan on starting yoga again, which is an activity I used to enjoy but fell out of habit with.
This week I proved to myself that hard work does make a difference. I need to devote as much energy to this as I did this past week, every week.
I do have an upcoming challenge this weekend as my parents are coming in to town and Friday I will be going to my grandmas where there will be every kind of unhealthy food, as well as eating out a lot. But I know I will make it..I lost these 3 pounds with hard work, Im not going to ruin it!
Thanks again to all those who have provided me with support and encouragement during my "plateau"!
