Yesterday Kim and I weighed in for our 7th time. I was up a pound. I was happy though. I know that sounds weird, but I had a pretty festive weekend at NASCARwith my Husband and some friends. 1 pounds was a good thing and I was so happy that it wasn’t more.
I feel pretty in control most days now, but would like to try to lose more each week. This less than 1 pound a week still seems so slow. I know it is the perfect way to lose weight, but, sigh, it just seems so slow still. 2 of my other girlfriends that I am doing weight watchers with have both lost about 10 pounds in the same amount of time, or less. I know that they have more weight to lose then I do, but I just feel like it is all relative. I haven’t been getting upset about it now though like I used to. It is always just a thought that lingers in the back of my head.
Today I did my 10th Bikram Yoga class in the past 13 days. It felt great! I am hoping that I will start seeing results over the next couple of months. I am also hoping that if I keep to a minimum of 4 days a week it will help get this weight off of me.
On December 10th I am doing a 12k with my Husband and my friend Kim. I need to start walking a bit and building up my strength that way as well. I have found that walking is funny. You can’t just get out there and think that you can walk without cramping, getting blisters and getting dehydrated. It is important that you work up to your goal. I learned this from training for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day last year. Today I was going to walk, but didn’t get to. Tomorrow I will try again. 🙂
