2 Stone!!!

I am a most happy bunny this morning - I have officially reached 2 stone lost at weigh in this morning. After a couple of weeks of rather blah results when not a lot happened (and yes, I realise that I only have myself to blame for that), the scales stuck by what they've been promising all week and I've dropped 3 lbs. Awesome.

In fact, I've noticed that I seem to fall into the same pattern that a few other people have commented on - I'll have a really good loss one week, and then a couple of weeks of not really going anywhere, and then another really good week. I suppose it must have to do with our eating and exercise cycles, but it would be interesting to understand it better.

Anyway, I'm feeling really pleased this morning, and for once I'm going to take the time to sit back and congratulate myself on what I've achieved, before I go haring off after the next target. This means that I've now achieved 40% of the total weight loss I'm aiming for which feels like quite a lot.

I've also just been looking at the dates in my targets bar on the left of this blog, and I've noticed that actually, to date, I've been achieving around half a stone a month losses, which feels like much steadier progress than I thought I'd been making. In my head, I thought I'd lost tons at the start and then really slowed down to nothing, but obviously that's not the case.

Right, I'm going to head off and have a really lazy day now. We had originally planned to go out biking again today, but the weather's pretty grey and wet, so think we're just going to mess around and have a guitar hero session instead. I might also head out to the shops and get some food top-ups, and maybe have a sneaky little browse round the clothes shops too ...... shhhhh - you didn't hear me say that. :o)

In the mean time I'd better get myself out of bed - how lazy is that - quarter to 12 and I'm still lazing in bed catching up on people's blogs - ooops!!!

WELL DONE on your loss and hitting the 2 stone mark, that is fantastic! your plans for a lazy day sound great and I hope you have enjoyed having the chance. Are you starting to like clothes shopping now then? I hated it before but am well up for it now!

That is a great accomplishment! How are you going to celebrate?

As for your blog comment, reading people's blogs is a guilty pleasure of mine, but often I find it gives me direction for the day. I feel inspired to stick to my goals so that in the future I can report about my successes! So don't beat yourself up too much. :)

:o) I just started the weightloss journey and I stumbled upon your profile. Seeing what great results these weightloss blogs have, I thought I'd give it a try.
Congrats on your amazing milestone!

Congratulations, that's brilliant. I can't wait for my 2nd stone, got 7lb to go. The first one felt good, but the second shows yourself and others that you are commited.
