2/8 Weightloss Wednesday: Feeling Great!

It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday!  It’s been a pretty good week as I’m at 219 lbs as of this morning.  After losing almost 10 lbs in January, it appears I’m at a small plateau/maintenance phase which is totally fine.  I think I’ve finally gotten the hang of not totally freaking out when I go 2 weeks at the same weight.  Being at 219 means I have lost 181 lbs total and about 11 lbs so far this year and it also means I have just a smidge over 19 lbs to go before that scale starts with a 1.  I am so looking forward to that!

On the exercise front, I decided I needed to get back to doing something to grow muscle.  I really liked the way I looked when I was able to go to the gym 3 times a week but now that I’ve had to take a night job it is almost impossible to find the time to be able to do that.  I decided to download 2 apps that set up goals for 100 pushups and 200 squats so I can at least have some kind of structure and goals to what I’m doing.  I also need to get back to where I am stretching everyday because I can feel my hips begin to tighten up again and I remember how susceptible I was to injury the last time I felt like that.

As far as diet goes, I’m finding it very easy to fall into a rhythm of Intermittent Fasting because I don’t like to eat at work so I’ve got a long stretch of time between work and sleep that I just don’t eat.  Some days I have a small breakfast at about 3 PM and then dinner at 7 and other days dinner is my only meal of the day and I might eat some nuts or something in the middle of my shift at work.  The main thing is that I eat when I am hungry but I rarely get hungry anymore which is really nice.

All in all, every thing is good.  I feel strong and healthy and am looking forward to the next phase of weight loss where I can get below 210 and then on my way to 200.  Stay tuned!
