Week 16 Day 107
Well, it has been one heck of a week… the Valentines celebration, coupled by a quick return to cold weather had left me reverting back to less than ideal habits of eating, and deferring exercise… For the first time since I stared this program, I had varied from my weekly weigh in, and stepped on the scale mid week, versus the “Sunday” only rule that I had set for myself. I was a bit taken back that the extra cookies, meal portions, and goodies from the Valentines celebration, and an extra meal out had a negative affect on my progress. While I wasn’t able to (read “chose not to”…) do anything immediate about the exercise situation, I was able to curb my binge eating and return to healthier and better-balanced meal selections…
So without any further agony, I will report this weeks weigh in results.
Sunday Weigh in day.
Week 16 Day 107
16th weigh in
Day of Week: Sunday Date: 02/19/06
Weight at last weigh in 178.5
Weight at this Weigh in 176.5 pounds.
A loss of 2 pounds
Total lost 20.5 lbs
I have 0 pounds to go to reach my goal
Due to weather conditions where the highs have been below zero, I haven’t been out for my regular walks. Once the weather breaks, I will resume my routine. We did enroll in a Latin dance class, so that will help provide some balance to my workout routine…
As for diet, I am planning to maintain my routine of making health choices, and will look to dip perhaps one more pound before maintaining that level. This brings me within the upper limits of my recommended Body Mass Index (BMI) To lose much more would, I have been told, give me an unhealthy appearance… and “nothing to hold on to…”
Thank you all for your help and encouragement in this long, slow, but very worthwhile endeavor. I wish you all the best of luck in making your goal, and changing your lives for the better!
