Good news! I finally broke through my two-week plateau at 206.5 and 206lbs respectively, and have managed to stay below 205 for the last five days or so. My official week-end weight is 203.5, although I weighed in this morning back at 204. I’m fairly confident that I’ll stay below 205 now. w00t!
My major dip in weight happened the day after my resistance-training PUSH workout, and stayed there despite pizza and cheesecake on Friday, and two Pollyeyes stuffed breadsticks on Saturday. You would think that a weight dip after exercise would incite me to exercise more often… but no. I ended up not following up with my kickboxing cardio.
Even so, I still plan to order some clothes for myself this week. Maybe I’ll even treat myself to a trip to Levis Commons and take a turn around Lane Bryant.
This week, I plan to *really* do two days of exercise. One day of strength training, one day of cardio. I know, it’s way less than the nice PUSH people want me to do, but I’m easing myself back into it. Making habits. Losing the weight slowly, so I’ll keep it off.
As much as I’d like to hit my goal weight by Thanksgiving, the statistics are against me. Overall, I’m averaging a loss of just under one pound a week, although my consistency has improved over time. If I were to stick with this program, with these results, I’d hit my goal of 190 just before Christmas. I’m not giving up, though. We’ll see how it turns out.
