I’ve lost 3.6 pounds in the last week and 134.2 pounds in 54 weeks. Want previous stats? Check out my entire 54 week weight loss progress.
I had one meal over the weekend that broke my self-imposed limit and approached nearly 1,000 calories, but other than that I’ve had a good past 7 days. I’m really pleased with the number on the scale this morning.
But I’m also cautious.
As soon as I got off the scale I was already thinking about how to celebrate this weekend with food. “I’m 10 pounds away from my (ultimate) goal of weighing under 200 pounds, I deserve a treat!” I’ve had a huge craving lately for my Achilles’s heel, Chinese and sushi — full of salt, fat, and at least 2,000 calories, always guaranteed to sink next week’s weigh-in.
Complacency, mixed with a little pride and cockiness is very dangerous. I know I could splurge. If I had already reached my goal I could easily enjoy my weekend at the sushi bar and simply work it off during the following week. But I haven’t reached my goal. I want to lose weight, not maintain.
I’m standing my ground and pushing forward with all my might.
199 is so close.
