But anyways, since today is Wednesday, that means it's time for another link-up with Erin & Alex to weigh-in.
Initial Starting Weight = 227
January Starting Weight = 217
Last Week, March 27 = 194
Today, April 3 = 192
Do you guys know what this means?! It means I lost 2 pounds this last week. And this means that since January, I've lost 25 pounds!! And I've lost 35 total since my highest weight!! And this also means I'm back down to my (most recent) lowest, when I first lost all this and weighed 192 in August 2011. This means it's time to get even more serious about this. I CAN'T WAIT to see that scale hit the 180's! That will be something I haven't seen in lord-knows-how-long!?!! I'm extremely pumped, if you couldn't tell.
The funny thing is, I'm not really sure I "deserved" to lose two pounds this week! I mean, I worked out last Wednesday (1 mile & 30 Day Shred) and Thursday (1 mile & Zumba), but that's all. Haven't done a single thing since then. For my non-scale victory of the week though, I set a new PR for my 1-mile run, at 12:49. My previous fastest time had been 12:58, so that's 9 seconds faster! And I was wearing the penguin shirt again, so I'm sure that had something to do with it!! :)
And just for another, random non-scale victory - I looked pretty good in some dresses at Ross yesterday :) I was looking for a new one for our engagement pictures this Friday, and I bought two, not knowing which one I liked better. I tried them both on for Jeff last night, and he liked both of them, and thought I should keep both, and probably wear both for our pictures as well! Then I put the picture below on Instagram last night (@HalieRenee88), and got great feedback on both of them! You guys really know how to boost a girls' self-esteem :) A lot of the comments agreed that I should wear both, but the majority of them were in favor of the navy one on the right! And I think that's honestly my favorite one too. I love the way it fits, and I love the crochet/lace details of it, and the fun sleeves! But I also just really love the peachy/coral color of the other one too!
|I won't be wearing those flip-flops with the dresses though! Picture some cute gold sandals most likely ;)|
So a quick recap - I lost two pounds since last week! I've lost 25 pounds in the last three months!! And I've lost 35 pounds total!! I set a new PR for my 1-mile, and I'm liking the way my body looks in cute dresses even more now :) I'd say all-in-all, things are really going good for me right now on this weight-loss journey! I've just got to keep up my motivation and inspiration, and keep working towards my goals! I just need to make sure I stay focused on this Path of Determination, in order to continue getting healthier!!
