This Is It!!
This is it! (At least for the 10 week challenge.) I lost another 11oz! I told that to Bob and he said, "that's almost a pound!" I am not complaining by any means. After all...we went to Fatburger on Tuesday with a friend (and had yummy Thrifty ice cream afterwards) and yesterday it was Applebees. I also lost another 1/4" in each thigh and 1/2" in my waist...I missed losing 14 pounds by only 2 ounces. My goal was to lose at least 10 pounds so I am very proud of myself. I have lost 21" overall. Very happy! I realize if I would have given up certain foods I could have lost even more. I will not give up foods I like. I am not dieting. I eat what I want and have realized I just don't need to eat as much. I do eat slower and I stop eating when I am full. I am also conscientious of the portions. Sometimes a little more of something sounds good, but I have built up my willpower and I can drink water to finish off the
need "want" for more. Over the next few weeks and months I will continue posting my successes and defeats on my blog. Knowing people are reading it and following my progress still continues to motivate me. I have not lost any of my enthusiasm that I had at the beginning of the 10 week challenge. Knowing I can accomplish the smaller goals makes it even more real to me that I can accomplish whatever I put my heart into! This was a great challenge and from it I will take so many things that will help me to continue to better myself.
