Calories and water are going well. My carbs are still around 50 g per day. I’d like to be under 35 g per day most days so I’m going to really focus on that this coming week. The days I run I am trying to drink more water and eat my carbs later in the day. Hopefully that will help.
I really don’t have much to say this week. Nothing monumental like last week’s race.
I did my first yoga practice in over 30 years today and it surprised me how quickly the poses came back to me. Not easy to do by any means at this weight, but easy for my body to remember. It’s a Gentle Yoga class and by the end of it I was feeling very mellow and relaxed, yet recharged at the same time. I’m already looking forward to next week.
I had an hour to kill today so I went into Old Navy to try some things on and I was frustrated because nothing fit right. Everything was too big. I was really getting annoyed when it dawned me…try a smaller size! Unfortunately, size 16s are too big but 14s (at Old Navy) are still too snug. I did get a pair of Calvin Klein denim capris at Value Village in size 14 that fit perfectly though, so it all depends on the cut/style. For fitted tops/shirts I still need 16/18 because of my upper arms and shoulders, but it used to be 24/26 so they are getting smaller. And I tried on a size 14 dress (spaghetti straps) from Rickis that was so cute and fit perfectly but it was just a little too short for my comfort, but it was otherwise perfect and I would have bought it if it had been an inch longer.
Since the beginning of January I've lost 16.4 lbs which is just over 1 lb a week.
This is my official new lowest weight in over 15 years. Anything from here now is all new weight loss. I would like to declare a moratorium to regaining and relosing the same 10lbs (or more). I no longer feel like I am flirting with Onederland and the anxiety around that number has disappeared. I think….I think - I’m there.
Hope your weekends are going well!
