Weigh-in Wednesdays: 137.2

Last Wed. weight: 138.6
Today's weight: 137.2
Lost: -1.4


TOTAL Lost: -39.2


A week of eating right and following through with exercise has paid off! If you look at my previous weigh-ins for the last several months, you'll notice that it's hard for me to even lose half a pound in a week so dropping 1.4 lbs. is GOOD!

Recently I've been reading A LOT of blogs where the authors' explain their reasoning for having too much of a calorie deficit, or eating too little/much food, or not getting in more exercise. Hell, I made an entire lengthy post justifying myself to a very rude email!

And I'm not saying that's good or bad. My point is each of us are on our own journeys to better health... no two people will ever do the same thing and get the same results. So do what works for you and as long as you're healthy about it, you don't need to justify yourself.

This isn't a bash on anyone, it's just a reminder to keep doing what we're all doing... no matter what others think or say.

I just read that email...Oh My Goodness.
No, you don't owe an explanation to anyone, but I did like your response.

Best wishes,

Great job!

I hear what you're saying. There are people that either don't agree with the plan I'm on or are jealous of the amount of weight I've been able to lose so far. I'm not letting them get to me.

Have a great day!
