Weigh in # 6 39 days in...

As I look and reflect on this past week.  I feel as though it's been a little stressful.  I feel like some of that liveliness I had has been diminished.  I thought about the discouragement and thought about "giving up."  I knew it wouldn't serve me or any reason to give up.  I did decide to continue with a strong and healthy spirit.  I will put all my effort into that.  The prayers are welcomed. 

At the end of weigh in #5 Fawn and I had set a goal for the first time.  The goal was to be out of the 300's by end of weight in #6.  That would have meant loosing 6 lbs this past week.  I secretly had a goal for 7 lbs since that would have put me at a total weight loss of 40 lbs.  Well I didn't make my goal.  I'm not to be too disappointed though because I did make it out of the 300's.  I reached Fawn's goal.  I lost 6 lbs. 

That same week another goal was set, to reach 50 lbs total weight loss by Christmas!  Will I make it - I positively have to think I'm going to.  It's the only way to succeed.  I'm still sick this week coughing and congested.  I'm going to forge ahead this week. 


Starting weight              338 lbs
last weeks weight          305  lbs
this weeks weight          299 lbs
weight loss this week        6 lbs
weight loss total              39 lbs
pounds until next goal      11 lbs

Positives for the week:
Lost more weight yayyy!
Have provided part of my church family with a healthy thanksgiving meal
I didn't associate Holidays with over eating to spend time with your family.
I will be starting to work with a gym this week.

Negatives for the week:
I'm still sick
I've had a little emotional setback

Here's to another good week!

  5. Welcome to the 200 club darlin! Congrats, you deserve it. Being sick always makes it hard to push through, just do as much as you can and don't be to hard on yourself.
