Weigh In 2/14/11

First off: Happy Valentines Day to everyone! I hope it is filled with love and sweets - but only sugar free ones!

Now down to business:


February 14
2011
Weight:
160.8 lbs
(-3.2)
Body Fat:
34%
(-1)
Bust:
38"
(0)
Waist:
30.5"
(0)
Hips:

(0)
Bicep:

I would call this weigh in a great success! Firstly 3.2lb lost, following a previous week of 3.6lb lost. That is fan-freaking-tastic! I am also really excited that I can see some differences in my pictures now, like the bulge on my hips is smaller as well as around the string on my back. I am starting to see a clear definition of my waist, and my tummy is flatter.

I also couldn't help but notice my shrinking legs while I was shaving this morning. I'm very excited about these results. Sort of odd (again same observation as last week) that I have now lost 6.8lbs in 2 weeks and have effectively only lost inches on my bicep and thigh... I really think that is just so odd. But there is no looking back this week.

I am 1.8lb away from my lowest weight in 5 years, and that is so awesome to me. I can't wait to bust through 159 and keep on trucking down to my goal weight. It also means that I reached my Hate Loss Goal of losing 10 lbs in 41 days the healthy way (technically I lost 10.8 lbs in 45 days). And that I am 10.8 lbs away from my March 12th goal of 150lbs.

Stepping back I am not sure 150lbs by march 12 (which is 26 days away)  is such a good goal for me as it has taken me 45 days to lose 10.8 lbs, but if I aim high and fail at least I will have still made significant progress toward my overall goal of 130lbs which I would like to hit around August (167 days away) for bathing suit season.

I'm feeling spectacular, now I just have to resist all these sweets people keep throwing at me today. PLEASE SHOW ME YOUR LOVE SOME OTHER WAY THEN FOOD! At least my boyfriend knows not to get me chocolates or candy - we are cooking a lovely low-carb feast for dinner tonight. I can't wait!
