I don't even know what to say... When I woke up this morning all I could think about was the scale and my photo shoot and how badly I wanted the scale to say 169 pounds for a total weight loss of 30 pounds. Guess what—I did it!!!! Oh my goodness, I can't believe it. I lost another three pounds this week and since the Challenge has started I've officially lost a grand total of 30 whole pounds!
Wow, I lost two pounds this week—I'm now down to 174 lb and I'm really happy about that. My goal of being 169 by the final photoshoot looks like it's actually realistic!
I'm only down half a pound this week but it's better than seeing half a pound up. I weighed in today at 176 pounds, which is 23 pounds down since the start of the Challenge, and that sounds pretty good to me!
I only lost one pound this past week—I guess that's still better than gaining a pound, right? I'm trying to stay positive. I now weigh 176.5 pounds and I think I'm going to have to kick it up a notch if I'm going to see the results that I want.
I've just proven to myself that you can still lose weight even with an injury. Somehow, fracturing my foot turned out to be a huge motivator to work even harder. Over the past seven days I lost another 3.5 pounds and I'm now weighing 177.5! I'm so happy!
Well—we had a setback this week! I've been nursing a bit of pain in my right foot for the past few weeks and a few nights ago in my softball game I rounded a base and realized that there may be more of a problem here than I realized. I went to the emergency department the next day and they think I have a stress fracture.
Nothing showed up conclusively on the X-ray so they've booked a MRI. Unfortunately, that won't be until November 21. In the meantime, they want me to try and stay off it—no running—and they want me to wear this air-cast-boot thing. Good grief!
