Wednesday Weigh In: Week 8

This week I’m down…

3.6 pounds!

I don’t know what I did differently over the last week, but I’d like to do it again. Repeatedly.

This takes me to a 9 pound weight loss, so I still haven’t achieved my second goal from my original posting about my weight. I’m listing my goals below to re-motivate myself. Also, I’m starting a challenge at my gym tonight (well, it started Saturday, but this is the first time I’ve been back since last week) where the person who loses the most body fat in 3 months wins money. I like money, so this should really motivate me!

My original goals/timetable:

  • 5 pounds lost by 08/29/12. Reward: new nail polish (1-2 bottles) (Accomplished on 08/29!)
  • 10 pounds lost by 09/19/12. Reward: new earrings 
  • 15 pounds lost by 10/10/12. Reward: new workout socks
  • 20 pounds lost by 10/31/12. Reward: new Threadless t-shirt (have some designs in mind…just depends on what’s available at the time)
  • 25 pounds lost by 11/21/12. Reward: another new Threadless t-shirt because there are several I like! =)
  • 30 pounds lost by 12/19/12. Reward: new Pandora charm
  • 35 pounds lost by 01/16/13. Reward: new expensive-ish sports bra (I know, between this and the socks, I’m super exciting, right?)
  • 42 pounds lost by 02/14/13. Reward: new Toms shoes!
Starting weight: 167 pounds
Current weight: 158 pounds
Goal weight: 125 pounds
