Optavia Week 9 Weigh In - 12/14/20

I had a really good week. I feel good, I'm sleeping so well, and I went through all of my clothes and pulled out dozens of items to donate or give away. I'm even wearing jeans that I haven't worn in the 5.5 years since I moved into this house - so my "I'll maybe wear these someday" jeans are finally being worn because "someday" is TODAY! It's funny to think that they probably won't last very long though, maybe just a few weeks. I don't have any smaller sizes, so I need to start buying a few things at a time, just to get me through until I find where my body naturally stops and feels healthy. 

Today I noticed I was hungry. Not bored hungry, but tummy growling hungry. It was strange, because I haven't been hungry in a long time. I made sure to drink my water, and I had an extra Ultima electrolytes and that helped. 

Also, this is a total NSV (non scale victory) but I am fastening my watch band on the third setting instead of the fifth - that's a big difference!

I lost 35 pounds on Optavia 5&1!

Let me be completely honest. When I started this program, I didn't know what exactly I was getting into, I just knew that I needed to do something. I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I was never feeling rested. I had all the tools to eat healthy, but I didn't know how to use them. I was skipping meals because I was too busy to stop and eat, and then overeating when I did eat. I was snacking on stuff I didn't actually want to eat because it was quick. I had days I felt OK but I never really felt GREAT. I really wanted to lose 20 pounds so I'd fit in my clothes better and because I knew I'd feel better with that extra weight gone. 20 pounds was my goal. I told my coach that number, and she said, well what's your BIG GOAL? And I was like, I dunno, maybe 50 or 60 (all while thinking to myself, yeah right!). I never actually thought I'd lose that much. I thought a healthy weight and healthy BMI was something that was not possible for me to achieve. I'm still not quite there, but now I not only feel like I CAN get there,  I know I WILL get there. 


Today I crossed the 35 pound weight loss mark (and hit 35.5 pounds lost - in just over 8 weeks!). I have a confession - I set my big goal in my Happy Scale app at 70 pounds - that seemed like such a huge goal at the time, but the app breaks it down into smaller goals. I split my big goal (70 pounds!) into 20 smaller goals. Today I crossed the halfway point in my journey. I've met 10 of my 20 smaller goals. I want to shout it out - I have lost over 35 pounds! I have lost over half of my BIG goal, the goal I didn't think I would ever even come close to achieving. I am just over 50% of the way there. 

I am so glad I CHOSE ME. I'm giving myself the gift of health, and that's pretty darn awesome. And you know what? I feel GREAT. Not just good, not just okay, but GREAT.
