Friday weigh in - major milestone edition!


I'm not sure I could be any happier about anything at the moment. I knew today was going to be the day. I went out at 7am, ran a 5k, came back threw all my clothes on the floor and jumped on the scale. It said 199.2 then I realized I was still holding my phone so once I put that down, a solid 199. I have not been this weight in at least 8 years.

Here are the stats:
Jan 14 - Start of liquid diet - 250
Jan 29 - Surgery weight - 237 -13
Feb 8 - 231 -6
Feb 15 - 222 -9
Feb 22 - 220  -2
Mar 1 - 218  -2
Mar 8 - 216  -2
Mar 15 - 213 -3
Mar 22 - 209 -4
Mar 28 - 208 -1
Apr 5 - 206 -2
Apr 12 - 199 -7

51 pounds total!  That's an overweight suitcase on Delta.

As you can see, amazing loss this week! My trainer is out of town so I did lots of yoga, lots of running and a spin class. I'm a little worried I burned some muscle which would account for the crazy weight loss this week. It also confuses me because I'm trying to find a perfect balance between weightlifting, cardio and yoga. Am I lifting too much? It seems to slow my weight loss but isn't it better for me in the long run? It's so hard to know!

What I do know is that I'm going to celebrate my success today - mani pedi, lunch with Crys, dinner with my best friends in the world. Lots of love :)

I can't believe how far I've come in 10 weeks. My life has completely changed already and there's still 74 pounds to go. I'm just going to continue to enjoy the journey!
