So I did ultimately decide to change my weigh-in days to Sunday instead of Monday. And even though I am one day short from a full week, I was still able to lose 3.8lbs in 6 days! 😀 That is 19.4 lbs total in the last 3 weeks which I honestly can’t complain about!! So far in my journey I have been ahead of schedule with my goals. These past 3 weeks I have altered my future weight goals on the Pudge Be Gone page. I think since I have averaged out between 3-4lbs a week that I won’t have to do too much adjusting in the future. If all goes well and I continue to do a walk every day, no matter what, as well as keep my eating in check, I predict I will be able to lose at least 3lbs per week until I get down to 250lbs. Once I’ve gotten to that goal weight, since I want to make sure I eat enough and not too little, I’m only going to push to lose a least 2lbs a week. I might lose more but I also want to be realistic and not set impossible goals. I know from past experiences that a 2lbs a week loss was reasonably obtainable between 250lbs and 190lbs. Once I get to 190lbs then I will drop my pounds lost per week goal to 1lb. Again I am sure there will be weeks where I lose a bit more than that, but I refuse to starve myself on purpose just to lose the weight! That shit is NOT happening!! Which is why I am pissed at myself today.
I boobooed yesterday by barely eating 1,000 cals. By the time I realized what time it was, it was already after 6PM which I have done excellent not eating after given my early bedtime. So then comes the question of if I realize that it’s already past 6PM and I haven’t eaten at least 1,200 cals, should I break my rule of no eating after 6PM to make sure I get enough calories? I was feeling nauseous this morning on my 1hr 13min walk and I’m pretty sure it is due to no eating enough yesterday. Obviously I need to keep better track of the time but I think next time I might at least let myself eat a piece of fruit or hell, even some oatmeal which I’ve hear helps with sleeping. Yesterday was the first booboo in that regard and I cross my fingers it will be the last!
Today for my Positive ME Statement #21, I would like to recap on all of the positive things I’ve said about myself over the last 3 weeks! Sticking with this for that period of time is an accomplishment in and of itself. Plus 20 is an even number so if I recap every 3 weeks then it will keep my OCD in check as well as help me stay even more positive about myself. 🙂
