Thinning Thursday.

So today I've been rocking my weight loss for 6 straight weeks! Go me! I keep working hard, tracking everything and doing my best and after 6 weeks of no change at the end of November and December I feel that I deserve it. I feel as if I'm sliding a little bit this week so I need to make sure that next week I am more diligent about my tracking and weighing and such. A good reminder to be extra careful the next week and not let snacking get the better of me. This week I was rewarded for all my hard work with a loss of 1.0lbs. I'm feeling on top of the world.

I've also decided that I should drop 1 of my daily points from my allowance this week. Katrina is starting to eat a LOT of real food and I want to slowly decrease my points instead of dropping them all at once when I stop nursing, and I figured now is as good a time as any to start that. I plan to drop one every month (or four weeks) from now until June when I go back to work, and then drop whatever are missing when I stop nursing. Wish me luck as it's never easy to lose one.

Finally, in addition to having dropped a great amount of weight I have had some wonderful non-scale related victories over the past few weeks (and months)! These are the great things that happened regardless of my scale's speed of decreasing. Below are my top 5 victories!
  1. I can go from sitting cross legged to standing pain free, while holding Katrina in my arms, without needing to push off my knees or lean on something to support me.
  2. I can run at 6.0 for a whole half mile, and 6.5 for a fifth of a mile consistantly.
  3. I finally fit in my awesome size 11 jeans, that I originally got in grade 11.
  4. I've learned how much or how little food my body needs to keep going and feel amazing, and I pay for it when I don't eat my healthy stuff.
  5. I know that I can do this even if it takes a little longer than I want it to, and that I am setting a great example for my children so they will not struggle with their weight like I did when I was younger.
Lillian's whatever face. This kid cracks me up!
