Last week, my friend and I decided to team up with our weight loss efforts, since we both have similar goals. Having a weight loss buddy has helped so much! I like that it's low key, yet perfectly motivating at the same time. We text each other everyday to check in, give inspiration, share meals, and whatever else we feel like talking about :) It was just the kick in the butt I needed! It helps to be held accountable, and to have someone to talk to, and get inspiration from when you're not having the best day. She has helped me stay on my diet several times.
This past Wednesday was our weigh-in day! The funny thing is that we both lost 4.6 pounds! We really did do this together, haha ;)
Last week's weight: 204.5
This week's weight: 199.9
My heaviest, a few months ago, was 209.9. That brings me to a grand total of 10 pounds lost so far, although it took months to get there. I am finally back in my weight loss groove, and it's not going to take me months to lose another 10 pounds. My friend and I set a goal to lose 15 pounds by Christmas. Losing 2 pounds a week, will get me to that goal, and I know I can do it!
High 5 Moment of The Week:
(I like high 5's, k?;)
Tonight the hubs ordered pizza. I had no idea it was coming, I just walked down the stairs, and BAM, there was one fine looking pizza on the table. I wish I could say I didn't have any, but I did. Although it wasn't one of those times where I lost all control and ate half a pizza before I even realized what was happening. On Saturday, I was going to go on a date with my wonderful, pizza ordering hubby of mine, so I was saving my one off meal for the week, for that. So when the pizza came I thought about whether I wanted to use this as my off meal, or wait for Saturday. I decided eating pizza while cuddling on the sofa, and catching up on Modern Family, was the perfect kind of date. But that's not what I'm proud of... Off meals haven't always worked for me. I usually start with an off meal, and then a dessert, and then a snack, and then a whole other meal, and it continues through the next day. Before I know it, that off meal has turned into an off week! I didn't know how to shut it off. Until tonight that is. I had 2 slices of pizza, with water, and didn't have anything else for the rest of the night. Even with Halloween candy in the house! AND THEN I hoped on the treadmill and did a 20min fat burning workout! Who's awesome? Oh yes, that's me ;)
Do you have a weight loss buddy?
