…I made my WI for July....
|This is the photo my leader took. Hahaha. She must not have an iPhone.|
|This is the photo I took. My iPhone weighs 0.2 pounds.|
This is actually the exact same weight I was when I did my WI on June 11th. Then wewent out of town on our Coeur d’ Alene trip and I came home with an awful gain!
June 11th my weight was 176.8
June 19th my weight was 184
June 25th my weight was 179.2
July 2nd my weight was 176.8
I have had success in bringing my weight back down. Yeah me! I also really cleaned up my eating and reduced my sugar this last week in anticipation for July’s WI. While that is all positive, I am still towing the top of my weight range a little too close for comfort.
The newest WW magazine had a 10 week plan for tips on losing some weight during the summer months. I read over the actual plan and while it had great tips and tricks, I typically am not in weight loss mode. However, I do need to drop a few pounds to have a little more breathing room. I would rather be closer to my goal weight itself and not the top of my weight range.
So, with that, I am going to commit to losing a few pounds. Perhaps over the next 10 weeks or so. I would like to maybe focus on losing a pound a month. I would like to see the scale go down each week but I also know I am realistic in that I don’t like cutting back my food and I don’t plan to miss out on summer social events.
I do need to keep my activity strong and also balance my eating daily/weekly.
I am headed to McCall Wednesday through Saturday to work with our Mobile Command on the 4th of July detail. My goal is to have a loss next week. I am not talking about a huge loss. Perhaps only a loss of 0.8 pounds. I don’t want to come back with a gain and have that much more to “work off.”
There will be limited opportunity to exercise and also long work hours. While I may not have control over my entire environment, I do have control over what I put into my mouth. There will be ample amounts of snacks and treats in the Mobile Command. While I can indulge in those treats I am making sure I arm myself with healthy snacks. I also planned our breakfasts meals and am taking healthy snack stuff and lunch stuff with me as well. My coworker is planning the dinner meals and I know she is health conscious.
That is kind of where I am at right now. I don’t want to over think things. I can start to get really restrictive when I am focusing on the scale. That is the last thing I need/want. I need to stay mindful of healthy eating, keep up my activity, and try to cut back a little here and there.
I will keep you posted.
