So I weighed in this morning and the scale showed 402!
That means I lost 4 pounds last week. I am 2 pounds away from reaching my first major weight loss milestone, which is breaking into the 300's! I am super excited and I hope next week I will be celebrating this milestone!
I am really in a good place right now emotionally, mentally, and physically. I have never been this dedicated and confident in any of my other weight loss attempts. I am very proud of myself, which might sound weird to some but I'll explain why.
The hardest part about this whole process is the learning how to push myself beyond what I think I can do and beyond all my comfort zones. As I have said before, I have lose alot weight in the past with the help of a trainer. He pushed me like no one ever has, he put me through pain I never felt, and he never let me give up. This time around I am doing this on my own, not to say I wont seek a trainer in the future. But right now when I am in the gym I have to push myself to do those extra reps even though I cant feel my arms, I have keep myself motivated, I have to push and push until I cant push no more, and even then I still need to make myself push even more! That is why I am so proud of myself, because I am doing what I need to do and pushing myself to places I never thought I would go. I find that the healthier choices are getting easier to make and that feels great. This is the lifestyle I want, I am fighting for it and love that it is becoming the normal for me.
Heard this quote today and thought I would share:
