I just have time for a quick weigh-in/recap of the week. As I mentioned yesterday, I saw a very nice surprise on the scale:
Hello 130's!! It has been WAY too long since I've seen the 130's (I think it was right around the time Mark was sick, so, going on two years). I was 139.5 this morning, so I am down 2 pounds this week. That surprised me, considering I just lost one pound last week; I really thought it was going to slow down, now that I'm so close to goal. But whatever happened, I'll take it! ;)
My body fat was 25.0%, so that was down by 0.7% from last week. And my waist was 26.25 inches, so that was down by 1/4-inch from last week.
I didn't do anything different this week--just the same calorie counting routine I've done for the last nine weeks. One thing I noticed is that I didn't feel the need to "drop a quick few pounds" before my boudoir shoot. I ate the same as always the day before and the day of my shoot, and it was relaxing not to have to stress over it. If I hadn't dropped weight over the past couple of months, I'm sure I would have had much more anxiety going into the photo shoot.
I tried on all of my "too small" jeans again yesterday, and was able to fit into a couple more. Now, I think I just have about five pairs that I need to be at goal to wear. I also tried on several pairs that I'd been avoiding wearing because they'd gotten too big. That's such a great feeling! I was able to get rid of eight pairs that were too big to wear. I really need to go through all the shirts in my closet, too, but I'll save that for another day!
Anyway, like I mentioned yesterday, I'm not sure how much I'll be writing between now and Monday. Is anyone going to the Detroit Marathon/Half-Marathon on Sunday? Jerry and I will be there, walking the International Half. Good luck if you're racing this weekend!
