That’s right! This week I was finally able sneak my way back into the 300’s! I am very happy to report a 3.9 Lbs loss for a total of 20.9 Lbs lost so far. This brings me to 398.1 Lbs! I smashed right past 400 Lbs barrier and into my next level up!(Expect my level up post when I wake up >.<) This brings me another step closer to my all time low the past five years of 374. It would be awesome if I was close to that goal before my big convention this year (Gencon Indy), but I know I will get to it sooner or later.
On the subject of Gencon I received an exciting opportunity from my parents to help me afford my trip this year. They have graciously offered to give me 10$ a pound for the next 20 pounds I lose. Thank you so much for the support Mom and Dad, love you! I getting really excited for Gencon this year. I am going to try and work on my endurance before it starts, on average most people walk 30+ miles at the 4 day convention. I plan on getting a step meter so I can see how much I really walk.
This week is sort of a contrast to last week, I think I ate well outside of my ↑↑↓↓←→←→BA Day (Aka Cheat Day) but my exercise kind of lacked. I did discover I love raw raspberries and they are so healthy! I plan to eat them more often, if anyone has good ideas of what to do with them let me know. While I say my exercise was bad this week, I did get some good workouts. I was able to swim for a whole hour doing laps. I got some goggles the other day before a half hour swim and it was great. I just wish I had got more bike rides in on the stationary bike and I almost forgot I was doing Yoga >.<. I did get a nice bike ride in tonight to celebrate the weight loss, rode almost 7 miles! I also did not get many walks in at work, I had a hard time wanting to go outside because the weather has been so up and down. No excuses this week, I will get my walks in.
This week I had a lot of NSV (No Scale Values)the biggest being I decided to try on some clothing I had not been able to fit into for a while. I was able to fit into my old jeans and T-shirt, the jeans were a little tight, but the shirt fit great. I also have been having no problems anymore putting my seat belt on, before I had to huff and puff and leave my car door open to reach it. Was a really awesome change to notice this. I think one of the most exciting changes I have noticed in me is my appetite, on my ↑↑↓↓←→←→BA Day I got full a lot faster. At the same time I have had almost no cravings, outside of the other day I was watching people drink soda and really wanted one. I also voluntarly mowed part of my parents lawn this week when I went to visit them. If you had asked me before I started this quest I would have did anything I could to avoid it, but I kind of crave workouts now.
For this weeks picture I wanted to share one last NSV. The stationary bike I use only goes up to 400 Lbs on the moniter, so before I could not input my correct weight. I was excited to be able to input my numbers this time around, so here is a picture of it!
As always thank you for the support and joining me on this long quest. Follow me on Facebook and Twitter!
