If you’ve been following my weight loss journey (did I really just say weight loss journey? ::cringe::), you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been doing well since I started posting again. For the uninitiated, my rules at the get go were that I wouldn’t do any more outfit posts until I hit my goal weight/size (125 lb / size 4), but I would allow myself to make fashion related posts once I hit the halfway point. This has proved to be very motivating.
On Sunday, the scale at the gym read 131 lbs.
This brings my grand total of weight loss so far up to 17 lbs. I’m feeling pretty happy. Mostly what I’ve found is that working to maintain a good weekly average of calories per day has been my best strategy. This allows me to eat more on the weekends but make up for it the following week. In fact, I have a whole list of helpful pointers that I could share at this point, so stay tuned.
I’m now comfortably wearing size 6 jeans from Target. I can only assume, though, that a Target 6 is much more lenient than, say, an H&M 6, so I’m not sure exactly where I stand on that. What I do know is that I’m only 6 pounds away from my goal weight, so by the end of this month I’m hoping I can successfully return to outfit posting.
Thanks for sticking with me this far. :)
