From my Progress Day 7 post last week...."My trick is to duplicate it next week."
Well it's next week now and I went from 183.6 to 180.4 this week for a total loss of 9.8. I have still been running about the same but watching what I have been eating. To be honest, I feel like I am eating more during the day. The main difference is less at night. That was (and will continue) to be my biggest hurdle.
Michelle has done a wonderful job of meal planning for dinner which makes it a lot easier on me. In addition to watching calories I have been trying to follow my own advice I have given to people when I say follow a plan strictly for 21 days and re-evaluate. I haven't been able to stick to a food plan for 7 straight days since I met my goal. This has been bad for me obviously but it also makes it much harder for Michelle to reach her goal.
SO, I will stick to it for another 7 days and re-evaluate. My stretch goals would be to just make it a habit again so I don't have to 'stick' to anything and get down to 175. In two weeks I will hit the 3rd anniversary of reaching my goal weight so it would be really nice to get down to that same weight of 175 on February 21st. This would actually be quite a significant improvement from when I reached it in 2010. Since I was more focused on fat loss initially I had very little muscle and lots of flab making up that 175. Since then I have changed my muscle to fat combination for the better.
I am feeling better everyday. Make it a great day everyone!
