GOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLLLL!!!



Recommended Posts

After the longest freaking stall I've ever had (just over 2 weeks) it finally broke and I dropped a couple pounds, and as of this morning I have officially met my doctor's goal for me! I now weigh 164.4 (goal was 165) and am aiming for my personal goal of 150 to put me at a healthy BMI. If I get there, I will take aim at 135 for my vanity goal.

I'm becoming increasingly scared that I'll just stop losing now that I've met the doctor's goal, and I am trying to remind myself that by continuing to eat below my TDEE, and following my nutrition plan, I will continue to lose because that is science. But we all know emotions run high during this process, and sometimes my emotions get the better of me and I panic that I'm done losing before I want to be.

For now- I shall Celebrate with a delicious Powerade Zero and set my sights on 150! 😊

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
