Wednesday Wow Factor!

Week 10

Start date
: 12/28/11
Initial weight:
Current weight:
This week's loss
: 3 pounds!

Last week's goals
: Stop making excuses for not working out, work out 4 times between now and next week, stay under caloric budget for the week, and work HARD to overcome feelings of defeat, insecurity, and self-negativity.

What went well:  Well, I certainly didn't go over my weekly budget this time!  Acquiring bronchitis led to a fever, chills, headache, body aches, coughing, choking, vomiting, weakness, dizziness (no blonde jokes), loss of appetite, and five days in bed.  I suppose loss of appetite isn't completely accurate... usually food was the last thing I wanted to think about, but other times anything and everything sounded awesome.  But there wasn't much I could eat.  Most everything choked me up and led to misery.  So, I was lucky to consume even 1,000 calories a day during this mess.  BUT, what great effects it had on my weight loss!  I certainly didn't do any exercising, "officially", but all the coughing and ralphing can definitely be counted as ab work.  This is pretty much my week, as I started feeling bad Thursday morning.

Oh and did I mention that stepping on the scale and seeing it display a number UNDER 200 again was AMAZING?   IT WAS!!!

Challenges: It's crazy to think I could still feel really freaked out by how my body's changing from losing weight.  My struggles last week were again with insecurities and self-esteem.

This week's goals: Work out 2 times between now and next week, stay under caloric budget for the week, and keep working to overcome feelings of  insecurity, and self-negativity.
Total lost so far20 pounds!!!
