10 Weeks. 10 Weeks I've been doing this. Doesn't seem real.
A quick look at my target date shows I planned to lose my excess weight in just over 32 weeks, so I'm nearly a third of the way through my time. I'm further than that in terms of weight lost, but that's still largely thanks to the rapid weight-loss of the first two weeks. I'm still ahead of schedule, but my advance has been slowly dwindling. I have noticed that I failed to hit my weekly target on either of my last two weigh-ins, which is of some concern. There were reasons for it of course, but with a goal like this, even the best reason takes on shades of an excuse.
Hoping for a lot from this week. I want to get back on track, and reach my target weekly loss of 3.1 lbs. I've also come very close to my specific mini-target of 259 lbs, or 18.5 stone. To have reached that on Monday would be a great personal victory, and would really give me a confidence boost at this point.
I've also noticed that, over the past couple of months, I have only had to spend 3 weeks in the 280's, 270's and 260's. To maintain that pattern I would need to be in the 250's by Monday. Really hope I make it. My running is much better now - I'm doing my set distance of 4 miles each time, and am starting to really enjoy my time out on the roads. I'm going to stick with the 4 mile distance for a while, and work on improving my time. Once I'm happy with that I will add another mile, which will mean changing my route, so that's another little project I can look forward to in the future!
My feet are still sore from my mission to attend the Royal Wedding yesterday, so no run tonight. I am instead going to try my weights again, as they've been a bit neglected the last few weeks. (As running shows much better results on the scales, it has naturally become more of a focus of late.) Hopefully tomorrow I'll record another little loss, and then I'll go for a nice long run on Sunday, which will hopefully push me into the 250's - maybe all the way to 259, and my special mini-target. Fingers crossed!
