Monday Weigh In

I could barely contain my excitement when I got on the scale this morning.  I actually got on and off three times to make sure that this wasn't a mistake.  Here's the update!

DATE       WEIGHT       BODY FAT (%)    HYDRATION (%)           BMI
5/31             138.4                28.6                       49.9                      27.0
6/13             137.2                28.2                       50.2                      26.8
6/28             133.8                27.4                       50.8                      26.1
7/5               133.8                27.2                       50.9                      26.1
7/12             130.6                26.2                       51.6                      25.6

That's 3.2 lbs down from last week!!!!...and 7.8 lbs lost total!  And look at my body fat percentage!  It continues to cool!!  I'm in shock!! BMI says I'm still overweight...but I could really care less.  I feel really good about my progress.

First, I want to say that my goal is not to get so caught up in the scale.  I continue to tell myself that this is about the journey.  I want to make everything that I'm doing authentic...I don't want this to be my diet life.  I want to enjoy the foods that I am making and eating...I want to enjoy the exercise that I am doing.  I want to try to remember that this is about changing my lifestyle...the weight is secondary.
With that said, I'm still very happy that I am seeing results of my change.  It's kind of a weird feeling that I had when I first saw the number.  It makes me someone is going to take it away from me...or something is gonna happen and I'm gonna be back to where I was last week.  I don't know if that makes sense.  I guess the thought of going back the other way just makes me scared. 

Anyway, for now, I'm gonna just enjoy it.  I'm 1.8 lbs away from my July goal!!  Woohoo!!

Okay, smoothie time!!!

P.S. Today is my last day of Shred Level 2.  So happy!  My initial enjoyment of it has waned.  I wanna be done with Shred so I can move onto yoga and some different kind of weight training.
