Today was weigh in day. I am down 1.2 pounds in 6 days (to include valentines day!). I will take it! That puts me 10 pounds from the 200 mark! I can not wait to get to 199.9 or lower!
I am an accountant and to make it worse I am a government accountant. Yes I know you are thinking thick dark glasses and pocket protector! while I am slightly cooler then that (I did ride a roller coaster with Hootie and the blowfish back in the 90’s), I am still a numbers geek. I have a spreadsheet for my weight loss. It tracks so much for me: My goal for the week, how many pounds left to lose till 100, my BMI, this weeks weight loss (pounds and percent), cumulative pounds loss, and cumulative % loss. It’s a great thing! Oh and it graphs my progress – okay so maybe when I am done here I will look on amazon for a pocket protector!
After updating my spreadsheet today I noticed a few things. Since January 1st 2010 I have lost almost 54 pounds or over 20% of my bodyweight. But then I looked at my BMI! I started at 42.6 and today I am at 34.1. I have decreased my BMI by 8.5! Now that may or may not sound impressive to you. But in the last year I went from class III obesity down to class I obesity. I am about 25 pounds from being classified as overweight..and not obese. I found that be so encouraging!
My 5K is two weeks from Saturday. I think I am on track with my training. My trainer was excited over my progress. I took tonight off from working out. the last 2 nights of bootcamp have been intense and my period showed up today. I love my kids but they didn’t need to give me their colds!! The weather is weekend is promising, I am hoping to get out for a run!!
Have a great night!!!
