Progress - Week Two

I'm very excited to do my second weekly weight loss update! I like that I'm holding myself accountable to all of you. It gives me a greater sense of urgency to accomplish something each week. I know there will be some weeks that I don't have much to report, but this is not one of those times...

When I updated last Monday, I thought to myself how nice it would be to come back this week with something major accomplished. I thought surely life would get in the way and I would just barely miss my goal. I told you last Monday that I had a 16 pound loss so far. Big deal...my weight can fluctuate overnight. For some reason I had the number 20 in mind last Monday. It felt like if I could actually make it there then that would be something.... 

I worked hard last week when I watched everything I ate and continued to sprinkle everything with Sensa. I lost a little here and there, but then I gained just a little back. On Saturday it seemed like things had just stalled out. I accepted that my 20 pound loss just wouldn't show up this week. Today when I stepped on the scale, I read a 21.5 pounds loss!!!! I knew right then if I had gotten upset about it on Saturday and allowed myself to get off track on Sunday, it would have been a smaller number!

This past week has been motivational. My sweet hubby has been supporting me from the very beginning. I have shared my small accomplishments and set backs with him and he's been amazing. This week my family also joined in the cheerleading. There were a couple of days I texted my dad my small losses and he cheered me on. It's been difficult letting those around me know what I'm doing. I don't like to publicly fail at anything, so maybe it will be the best motivation out there...
