Do you guys weigh yourselves every day or only once a week?
I've been weighing myself every day for the past couple of weeks. I know they (whoever "they" are) say you should only weigh yourself once a week to keep from letting the scale rule how your day is going to go, but for me, I stay a lot more motivated day to day if I weigh in every morning.
If I only weigh in once a week, it is just too easy for me to eat badly the day after my official weigh-in day. I always tell myself, "I have a whole week to lose weight before the next weigh-in. I can take today off." Then one day turns into two days and two days turns into three, and before I know it, it's time for my next weigh-in and I've gained.
I think the last time I posted my weight here I was at 273.8. For some reason I got stuck there for a while, but last week the scale finally started moving down. It's a great feeling to look down every morning and see a lower number. Well, today was the best number yet because I am FINALLY back in the 260s!!
Today's Weight: 269.8
Total Weight Loss To Date: 24.2 pounds
Over the past year and a half that I've had this blog, I've gotten into the 260s before. Right before my trip to Orlando last year I got down to 264.4. Once I get below that number, I'll be entering new territory that I haven't seen in at least 5 or 6 years.
My goal for July is to get into the 250s, so I need to lose about 10 pounds. I know with the work I've been putting in, that goal is very doable. I also have some clothes that are SO close to fitting. I am looking forward to trying them on again on August 1st and having them fit!
Speaking of clothes, I decided to sort through the mess in my closet and sort everything this past weekend. I have TONS of clothes. I realized I have everything from Size 12 to Size 24. I boxed up everything that was currently too small and donated everything that was too big (not going back there, so I don't need them). Right now I'm mainly wearing Size 22, but now I basically have a new wardrobe waiting for me each time I lose a size. I am going to go through my stash of clothes and try on everything once a month and continue to donate the stuff that gets too big.
I have to say, one of the best feelings is pulling on a pair of jeans and having them fit perfectly when you could barely get them over your hips in the past.
Happy 4th of July! Stay safe and make healthy choices! :)
