So I’m typing this week’s Weight Loss Wednesday post from warm sunny Florida. The weather is crazy in Phoenix, so I’m really glad I’m here. The other day it was 38 degrees in Phoenix, AZ, 48 degrees in Fort Wayne, IN and 68 degrees here in Florida. Isn’t that crazy! So this week’s weigh in was a little disappointing. I’m hoping it’s because I’m using a different scale, but I have eaten quite a few things I wouldn’t normally eat since I’m out of town for work.
Last Week’s Weight: 256.4
Today’s Weight: 256.8
Weight Lost This Week: I gained .4
Total Weight Loss: 10.9
So my weight this week is kind of a bummer, but I have an NSV (non-scale victory) that I’m so excited to tell you about!!! I made it to the top of the trail over the weekend. I can’t even begin to tell you how happy that made me. It took forever. Ok…it actually took 65 minutes to make it to the top. I’m not even exaggerating when I tell you that I got passed by no fewer than 10 senior citizens. One guy passed me on the way up, passed me on his way back down, and then went back up again and passed me again. There are some seriously fit people who hike here regularly. It gives me hope that if I keep it up, that will someday be me. For now, I’m just going to revel in the fact that I made it all the way up to the top. My family was with me today so that made it even more fun. When we got near the top, I was literally stopping every minute to catch my breath. I told them to go on to the top without me…and I’d meet them up there. They hung in there with me though and were there cheering me on as I made my way to the top.
So…all that to say, even though the number on the scale went up, I’m still thrilled with the progress I’m making!
