Weigh Day (week three)

Guess who’s getting a necklace?!  I am sure you guessed correctly…ME!  I still have apprehension (and a little anxiety) on weigh days because I am afraid the scale will show failure instead of success.  Of course, I hope as the weeks go by I will find myself less and less apprehensive.

This morning I weighed in at 297.4.  That is exactly 3 pounds lost this week for a total of 14.6 in three weeks.  I am very pleased with my progress.  Again, I will say I expect my weight loss to slow (even more than 3 pounds per week) as I continue forward.  It has steadily dropped since I began (over 7 pounds lost in week one, over 4 pounds in week two, and exactly 3 in week three) and will likely level out around 2 pounds lost per week.  I am fine with that, though, as long as the scale shows a consistent decline.  Besides, the slower you lose the weight, the more likely you are to keep it off.

I am excited to get below 290 (and get those earrings to match my necklace) now.  I should be there in about three weeks.

How did you do this week?  How can you do better this coming week?
