Week 3 Results- Game 5

Let's get right to it.

I didn't make my weight goal. Now, in order to actually make my weight goal, I needed to lose 2% (to make up for the fact that I didn't make weight last week). I lost 1.75%. Big bummer, especially considering how hard I worked the past three days especially to try and squeak through! Weights, hiking, running, workout classes, spin class, yoga.

As I mentioned yesterday though, I knew regardless of what the scale said, I would be okay. And yes, I'm a little bummed. I would have really been happy making goal. But on the other hand, I'm not unhappy because I didn't make goal. Which is a nice change of pace for me.

The reality of the situation is that I've lost 32lbs since August. Regardless of how I wish it was more, and the weight loss was moving along quicker, it's a fantastic testament to just how hard I've been working and is a great motivator to keep me working hard in the many months I have ahead of me.

I'm in better shape than I've been in as long as I can remember. I can take a spin class without dying. I can run two miles without stopping. I can easily put my own needs ahead of others and work. I can eat nutritiously without it feeling like a chore. I can identify what I need versus what I want. I can say no without feeling deprived. And almost more importantly, I can say yes without feeling guilty.

Maybe the scale will be better next week. But regardless, I'm along for this ride- for the long haul.
