Today I'm linking-up with Erin @ She's a Big Star and Alex @ Skinny Jean Pilgrimage to bring you my:
This is my first Weigh-In Wednesday Link-Up.
I am a My Fitness Pal (MFP) user & used to weigh-in on Fridays. But there were a few weeks there where my weight was not changing & then I was sick all last week, so I didn't weigh-in at all. I decided I would change my weigh-in day to Wednesdays so I could link up with these ladies & my other new blogger friends.
I've been working on my weight loss for about 2 years now. I like MFP cause when you don't hit your goal weight by the date you picked, it just pushes your date out for you. I didn't really get serious about my weight loss until April or May of 2012.
I got really excited when this popped up on my screen this week:
I mean, I KNOW I log into this thing everyday, but I was SHOCKED to see that I had actually logged in for 175 days in a row!!!!
Now, my goal calorie intake is set so that I lose 1 pound per week, which is what is recommended in order to have a healthy weight loss AND keep the weight off.
I am BEYOND EXCITED to announce:
I have OFFICIALLY hit my weight loss goal!!!!! It's just time to shape it up!
Now...these last 2.8 pounds were not exactly lost the best way. As I was telling my blogger friend Lora @ Raising Steppe Sisters I had ABSOLUTELY no appetite while taking care of my 2 sweet girls who had the flu & developed secondary bacterial ear infections while I myself had the flu & developed a secondary bacterial ear infection.
But my workouts start again TODAY...and you know why?!?! Lora reminded me that Spring is coming & in the Spring, I loss my security blanket of layers that hide the stuff that needs to be toned up. OH how thankful I am to wear baggy scrubs as work clothes!!!! But I do other things besides work & I would like to feel comfortable enough to wear cute close that fit.
So I guess my Weigh-In Wednesday will be updates to let you know if I do or don't maintain my weight & how the toning it up is going.
