I hit my lowest weight ever this morning, coming in at 215.6 lbs. Was a great feeling!
Like I said on Monday, even though I showed a gain for last week, I didn't think it was really accurate. The weight suddenly piled on over the weekend despite (or maybe because of?) the exercise I was doing. Well, sure enough, that weight fell away quite quickly, and I'm now rocking a pretty decent loss on top of dropping the gain too. I'm not going to get too excited before tomorrow's weigh-in though, as I know how quickly everything can change!
Plus, I just got done with a massive sleep, so I know some of it will be dehydration. I can finally afford to catch up on my sleep, as Friday was my last day of term! Got a two week break now, and no exams in January either, so I can afford to relax a bit. Been a hectic couple of final weeks, hence not much posting, but I survived it, and my weight is still doing OK!
Also, I went out with a lovely young lady last night. I don't know if I would call it a date necessarily, as we've been friends for years, but it was a really big thing for me, for one particular reason. You see, it was the first time I'd actually asked someone out. I would never have had the confidence to do that before this weight loss program started, and the fact that I did had me beaming from ear to ear, even before I got a reply! Now I'm in the tail end of my weight loss, its time to start shedding old fears and constraints, as well as pounds...I don't have the excuse of my weight holding me back anymore, so if I STILL chicken out, its just straight-up cowardice!
I'm off doing the family rounds for the holiday season from tomorrow, which is going to make it a bit more difficult to both blog and exercise (and heck, even to weigh!). I'll do the best I can with all three, but in case I disappear for a few weeks after tomorrow's weigh in, may you all have a merry Christmas, and a happy new year! Let's make 2012 THE ONE, shall we?
