Well the results are in and I must say I am pleased. No, I didn't hit my goal of 44 pounds but I think I’m ok with it this time because I have known for a few weeks that it was really not going to be possible to hit it safely. I did all I could do and put up a decent number but I didn't hit my Phase 2 goal. I will always be a little disappointed when I don’t hit my goal but the big picture is way better.
I weighed in at 247 this morning, that is a total loss of 23 pounds this Phase. I know, not the best for this Phase, but I also lost 2 pants sizes in this Phase and I am at a loss of 84 for the year. I hit a complete stand still for about 7 weeks where the weight didn't go up or down so I really lost this 23 lbs. in the last 5 weeks. So, that’s 84lbs in 6 months, how can you not be happy about that?!?!?
And now some Before/Phase 1/Halfway Photos!
Phase 3 has officially begun today but I have allowed myself a few things on this first day of Phase 3 that I have done without for a few weeks like Fruit Loops and Cheese Its. Other than that its back to work as normal. The goal for Phase 3 is 30 lbs. but I would really like to see the 100’s by the end of this phase.
