Some of you may know that I started a weight-loss chart pretty early in my weight-loss journey, but I never completed it. I left the chart behind when I left New York.
And after seeing David’s chart (see it here, and check out his blog if you feel like seeing an incredible transformation) I decided to make another chart, but I ran into a problem after late last year. At my last weigh-in in New York, I had lost 109.6 pounds. And since then, I’ve weighed in a couple of times in various scales – losing 13 pounds one week, 3.6 one week, etc..but I can’t be sure what I’ve truly lost without being back in NY to check.
That being said, I’m going to make the chart documenting only what I know I’ve lost for sure. I don’t want to reach the 200 pounds lost mark later this year only to realize that I’ve only lost 185 pounds. Does that make sense?
I’m quite sure (based on my clothing that I’ve lost closer to 130 pounds) though I don’t think that’s as important as seeing the numbers go down once again. There’s a gap between the months I left NY and the beginning of 2011, but it’s the best I can do for now.
In other news, today will definitely be a rest day. After working out and adding triathlon training, my body needs a little break. I’ve only had one “rest day” in the last 17 days. And I know that I need to be more responsible with my body because my feet officially hurt. I jammed my left one yesterday and twisted the right one a little, and I know it’s because I was too tired. So here’s to a day of rest (from workouts.) It’s ironic that I used to look for reasons to skip workout days, and now I can’t get enough.
Do you struggle with taking a day off from workouts when you’re in a groove? Do you chart your weight-loss? What do you to motivate yourself and celebrate your accomplishments?
