Small Steps to Big Changes: Week 32

Submitted by Bethany on Sun, 08/18/2019 - 10:00

Reading: 49/52 (+0 for the week) We started getting out of the house more this week so I didn't get a book finished this week. It's all good though, I'm definitely going to crush my goal of 52 books this year considering I'm 3 away and it's only August!

Language: 23270 XP (+0) Still thinking about new ways to work on this goal...

Weight Loss:

Starting Weight: 266
Current Weight: 223.25
Weekly Change: +1.5
Total Change: -42.75
First Goal Weight: 180 
Pounds to lose until goal: 43.25

The roller coaster continues! This happened to me when I was trying to break through 230 - I'd lose a couple and be close, go back up one, lose 3 go back up two, and on and on for a couple of months. I really want to break through 220 and I was hoping this would be the week. I monitor throughout the week and I was close at one point, then went back up by today. Grr. 

I am exercising more - tons of walking as we have started exploring Sofia, 15 minutes of yoga every day (I didn't miss a single day this week!) and 100 push-ups most days. Joel said maybe I'm gaining muscle again and that's the problem. Whatever it is I will continue to make healthy choices and I know the weight loss will follow. I am so ready to see a number under 220! 


Your thoughts?

You're doing so well! I know you won't let the scale get you down, but right now, those are just numbers since you are living the lifestyle to get you on track. You're rocking this.

Yes, while it's frustrating when the scale doesn't reflect the work I'm doing, I know the work/lifestyle is more important and that's where I'm at!
