My Goal: 125 pounds (Deadline April 12, 2013)
Glad to see the scale still moving in the right direction, although I can’t take credit for any great feats of accomplishment. I just haven’t been hungry this week, which makes it much easier! Although… receiving 7 boxes of girl scout cookies, and putting them out for my office mates to eat, and not touching a single one myself, is actually a pretty huge accomplishment for me. I know damn well that 1 of those little suckers will turn me into the ravenous sugar monster, so I’m determined to stay strong. My evening Godiva truffle is enough to satisfy my sweet tooth and avoid any feelings of deprivation. Just 6 more pounds to go to my ultimate goal, and am giving myself an extra 2 weeks since I know that realistically, 1-pound per week in the final stretch is already aggressive. I also am going to a Florida resort for a week-long business trip in 6-weeks – the first bathing suit opportunity, which is extra motivation. Our new gym at work, as well as my status as an official “Wellness Ambassador”, is also keeping me motivated.
For those that use MyFitnessPal… what’s up with the maximum sugar allotment? I can’t have 2 pieces of fruit in one day?? I usually just ignore it, but I hate seeing the red! I wonder if there’s a way to reset this number…
I’m eager to see who is the winner of the Jewelry Giveaway Contest! Once everyone has had a chance to enter their final before & after numbers, I’ll announce the winner and contact you directly by Monday to coordinate your prize. Thanks to everyone who has participated – it’s actually helped motivate me more than you know!
