Weigh-In Wednesday

Happy Hump Day everyone! After a three week hiatus, it is time to get back on track with Weigh-In Wednesdays. Let's get to it.

Although I haven't been posting on Wednesdays, I have been keeping up with my healthy eating habits and exercising. And keeping up with that through the Holidays was not easy, but guess what? I did it! So I can no longer use the Holidays as an excuse for not eating healthy and staying on track because in reality, for me anyways, it really wasn't that difficult.

Let's get to the good stuff. I seriously have been working my ass off! I have been keeping up with going to the gym six days a week. Three of those days I do Zumba and the other three days I am doing weights and a little bit of cardio. And with each workout I can feel my body changing. I feel it getting stronger and leaner. And this is a change that I am absolutely loving.

Okay, let's look at my measurements.

Holy shiz!!! I didn't realize until I looked at this how much I had really lost. I mean I knew the number attached to the lbs, but inches wise, I didn't realize that I had lost so much in some areas. As you can see, I am down to 201.2. I have lost a total of 21 lbs since the beginning of November and a total of 31.4 lbs from when I was at my heaviest in the 230's. 

I am so freaking close to getting into onederland and being out of the 200's! I am really wanting to get under that 200 lb mark by next week's WIW. I know I can do it! I just need to really push myself this week, especially since my body feels like it is stalling on the weight loss right now. But I am going to keep pushing through!

Something that I think has really helped me this time around, aside from the trainer, is the weight loss challenge that I am doing right now. My best friend Lou is a Beach Body Coach, so she decided to throw together a challenge group. Although we are all there to try and lose weight and win the cash prize at the end, I have really received a lot of extra support from the other girls in the group. And you wouldn't believe what that does to your self esteem and drive. It has been one of the best things for me. And even after the challenge is over, I know I can turn to any of these girls for support if I am having troubles getting motivated. 

The only real goal I am setting for myself is to get under that 200 lb mark by next week. I am finally at a point where I feel comfortable with my gym routine and my eating, so I  just want to stay consistent with that. And of course, drinking more water is always a priority too. So I guess throw that in there as a goal as well. 

That is all I have for you guys today. Thanks for stopping by and checking in on my progress. I hope that you are having a great week and that the rest of it goes by quickly!
