Happy Friday everyone!!!
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you did pretty well most of the time? You ate mostly healthy foods and watched portions, but also happily indulged in some of your favorite foods (pizza, ice cream) here and there? And while the gym wasn’t your bff during the week, you still put aside some time for a couple of awesome sweaty workouts? That’s kind of how my week went so I wasn’t sure what the scale would tell me last night. I was pretty sure I wouldn’t gain, but was fully prepared to lose a pound or less and I was okay with that. Can you say “Surprise?!”
Starting Weight: 251
Week 24 Weight: 230.8
Week 25 Loss: 3.0
Current Weight: 227.8
I asked the WW receptionist if I heard her correctly because I wasn’t expecting another big loss so soon. I also tested out both scales at the meeting to see if they weighed me in at the same weight (they did!) – now I won’t have to wait at one particular scale each week. I know I won’t get such big numbers each week but I have to admit that it’s nice to see the scale move into the 220s! (This is the lowest weight I’ve been since probably early 2010 - I got down to about 218 (using NutriSystem) but of course gained it all back as soon as I started eating real food.) I am so happy that I decided to join WW meetings; I find them inspiring, uplifting, and so much fun!
I’m sure that I’ve mentioned it before, but tomorrow, I’m meeting up with one of my best Twitter buds for the first time and we’re running an 8k together! I’m so excited to meet her, run my longest distance yet, and enjoy all of the food and post-race celebrations. I’m not looking forward to possibly running in the humidity that just rolled in, but hopefully it be a little less swamp-like tomorrow.
Have you ever met up with any weight loss friends that you met through blogging or Twitter? What did you do? How did it go?
