Starting Weight: 250.3Last Week's Weight: 221.6
This Week's Weight: 223.2
So plus 1.6 pounds. I am not happy with that, but I know what I did. I ate a lot of food at home and didn't exercise. I also came down with a cold, but I don't think that is a good justification, haha.
That gives me an overall December gain. Of .4 pounds. It could be a lot worse.
Every day I am realizing more and more that this whole process of losing weight and getting healthy is for life. It's going to take me awhile. I'm okay with that. And to tell the truth, I am really excited to get back into the gym tomorrow night. Unless I am seriously dying from this cold, I will be there. I can't wait.
My friend Kate and I went outlet shopping yesterday and I got a new pair of jeans at Old Navy for $15 bucks. They are a size 16. Did they look good? Oh no. Could I get them buttoned? Yeppers!!! I would consider that a small victory right there.
I do not suggest this strategy unless you are completely dedicated to losing weight beforehand. It will probably not work to kick start a diet if you go and buy your pants too small. You would probably just waste money. But I know that I am in this for good. I did it with my last pair too, my 18s. They were tight when I got them, and now they fit perfectly. I know that perfect fitting 16s are not too far in my future. =)
I am ready for the new year, and for the new challenge of training for my half marathon in May.
