Last Saturday, I weighed myself and discovered that I lost 1 pound.
I am officially in the 120's.
I haven't seen the scale do that for 6 years.
I really can't believe it.
I can't believe that I've lost over 30 pounds.
Once in a while I ask myself how it happened.
Of course I know how it happened.
I think one of my biggest tricks is that I don't think too much about how much work it's going to be.
And that's exactly what it has been.
It has been a lot of work.
However, it's only the beginning, right?
I have less than 10 pounds to lose, and I'll get there hopefully sooner rather than later.
The real issue is keeping it off.
There's no "wonder formula" as far as maintenance is concerned.
I know it'll take
These are the things that are getting me there,
and these are the things that CAN keep me there.
I saw my doctor on Friday to get my test results.
I'm happy to say that all of the basic workup was great!
Cholesterol- pretty low
The doctor is weaning me off 2 of my medications and took me off Crestor.
I'm sooo glad! I don't want to be on meds for the rest of my life.
That's one of the reasons why I started this weight loss journey.
I hope you're finding some successes in your journeys too.
Here are some small ones that I've noticed.
I don't get "side stitches" when I run.
My upper body feels stronger.
There's less "back fat" back there. You know, where the straps of your bra "hugs" your back. LOL.
Have a great week, and I'll see you all here tomorrow.
