14 Week Weight Loss Weigh In

Well, that last post about weight loss being a journey continued the past couple of weeks.  I’ve been yo-yo’ing between the same 5 pounds in direct proportion to how many days I stay on plan vs. off plan.

As of my official weigh in this morning, I am 11.2 pounds down from my starting weight.  I’ve lost more, but gained it back and then lost it again, and gained it again, and so on and so forth…

While I am thrilled to have lost 11 pounds, I know it could have been a whole lot more if I’d had more discipline.  So I’ve started getting kind of down too.  

I really don’t want to start 2015 at the same weight that I started 2014.  I had all those goals for the year and I’ve let most of them slide.  I have approximately 5 weeks left in the year and at 2 pounds a week that would be another 10 pounds lost ~ 21+ pounds total. 

I really want to start 2015 motivated and on track for losing the rest of this weight.  So what does that mean?  It means I have to make it through the holidays not just maintaining my weight, but LOSING weight too.  Ack!

So how do I make this happen? 

Losing Weight During the Holidays

  • Graze on the veggie platters.
  • Eat smaller portions.
  • Exercise at least 20 min every day.
  • Tell myself I can have mashed potatoes and pie any time…but how good will losing weight now feel?

What do you do to keep motivated?
