After working very hard during week 1 and being disappointed with next to no change I was beyond ecstatic when week 2 made up for both weeks – WOW! However, I knew I had a hard job ahead of me during week 3. Pouring rain (seriously it’s been torrential here for 2 weeks now, uggghhhh….), a few meals out, and a road trip all put me a bit off track. I still made some better decisions: no road trip candy, no bad gas station food, and ordering breakfast off the light menu; however, I also indulged with a funnel cake at the 4th of July celebration and cupcakes at the baby shower.
After such a hard week I was just hoping my number would stay the same and not go up, so I was shocked when I saw this:
Another pound lost. WOOHOO! I am slowly making it closer to my normal, clothes fitting, 160ish. Plus only one more pound to go to win the bet. I will have to work really hard this week, because the number on the scale was actually lower than I expected and I’ll need to bust my bottom to get it even lower than that. I know I won’t hit a 10 pound loss like I did in the last bet, but winning this would be a big accomplishment and a great way to prove to myself I can do it.
Here goes nothing – well actually here goes me calorie counting and working out!
This also means I have no time for excuses with weigh in on Monday. So last night, despite the pouring rain and humidity, I ran. My body felt 100% better afterward; however, my hair was not quite as happy about the soaking rain and ridiculous Southern humidity. (And yes, I really do turn that red when I run. The perks of having translucent pale skin. HA!)
If I make this Diet Bet should I sign up for a another one to help me get back to the 156.6 I ended the last one at?
Should I focus on dropping the weight without the motivation and weekly check-ins of the Diet Bet?
