My Public Display of Dieting – Week 12

April 1, 2016

RESULTS: Lost 2 pounds for a total loss of 14 pounds

Bathroom scaleIt's been a crazy busy week! Sorry I haven't posted till now. So the amazing news is that even with my birthday and Easter, by the time I weighed myself on Tuesday of this week, I'd lost last week's pound that I'd gained and lost one more pound. Whew! Haha!

I think the most helpful thing I've done this past week is I've accidentally had my big meal in the middle of the day – like Easter brunch – and then had only a protein shake for dinner. The last few days I've been eating that way, too – a big lunch (mostly because I was hungry from having so little the night before, I think), and then very little for dinner, partially because I had very few calories left!  🙂

I haven't exercised as much because I've been out a lot. But I'm getting back into that again, too. If I lose one more pound next week, I'll have lost the fifteen pounds I gained over the last two years and be back at what was my previous high weight from 1998 or so. I can't think about having to lose weight to get back to my old high weight as negative – it's done and I can't change it. So I'm looking at it as a positive – yes, I gained a lot of weight, but I've lost it in just three months! Yay!

I'm looking forward to the next three months! 🙂

P.S. Aussie friends – 2.2 pounds = 1 kilo. So you can round it off to cutting my numbers in half if you want to know how many kg it is. I've lost about two stone.  😉
