the no longer dreaded weigh in

Current weight: 19 stones 7 pounds (273 lbs)
Previous weight: 19 stones 8 pounds (274lbs)
Highest weight: 21 stones 3 pounds (297 lbs)
Weight loss this week: 1 pound
Total weight lost: 1 stone 10 pounds (24 lbs)

Yep. Another pound *poof* gone! I hope to get back to my original two stone loss pretty soon so that is just four pounds away. Just a mini goal. But before I go away on August 9th I would love to hit 19 stones exactly. So I have four weeks to lose 7 pounds. I feel this is relatively achievable. Lately I have just been aiming to lose something each week so maybe these mini goals will motivate me a little more. Also besides the walking I haven't really stretched myself with exercise this week... been all like 'ooooo don't want to strain myself before the walk' so now I have done it (woot it makes me super happy just to be able to say that.) I can get back into exercising properly.

So far today I ain't done much... lay on the couch and watched the pretty thunderstorm roll on by. It's clearly time to get up off my one pound lighter arse and get moving. Once I have checked your awesome blogs that is...

Much love to everyone who stopped by and commented yesterday on my race for life post. It really made me super happy to read and have all the support of such wonderful people.

Also the scales had been hidden until weigh in and its working. I am definitely not stressing out over it and it feels good not worrying about the fluctuations all day so this is definitely all good. I thought I would be missing the scales massively so *phew* for now its all goooooooood.

Your goal is WAY attainable! I havent hid my scale but I followed your lead and just gave myself a weigh in day and I am no longer obsessing. Its more enjoyable that way :)

Congrats on the loss! WOO!

You can totally achieve your goal, but the important thing is to not be disappointed if you don't. You will eventually, don't let when it happens determine your mood.

Good to hear about the scale :)

Have a good one.

Yippee yahooo!!

I felt so much saner when I gave up the scale. What matters is your behavior, not what the scale says. :)
