Down 4 More, Can I Do 8 This Week?

23 Feb

So I am down 4 more lbs for this week! YEA! that is a huge moment because I am not only down for a total of 12 (360 lbs now), but my BMI has dropped below 50! I am still at 49.9 and that is still a really high number, but it is still better than what I was at and is going down.

Now why do I need to go down 8 more lbs this week you ask? When I started, my one goal I really wanted to achieve was 10 lbs a month. Well, it is the second month and I am only at 12, so I am wondering if it is possible to safely hit 8 lbs in 1 week? I think it is. I will have to work a little harder this week than normal and actually go to the gym over the weekend, but I have a feeling it is possible. I am also going to have to watch my food too! But it will be a little easier this week. My FANTASTIC Aunt Cathy (who is also my AWESOME trainer) has invited me over to her house on Friday to cook some meals for me and to get some snack baggies ready. So I should have food to get me through and maybe I can hit my goal of 8 lbs. Of course, since I won’t weigh in again until Thursday, and that is technically March, but I will so count it, especially if there is even a slight possibility I make it 10! Go away lbs!

I got weighed in on Friday and the good news is I didn’t weigh as much as I thought. The bad news is I still weigh 372! But that will soon change my friends. I have been to the gym 3 times since Friday (with 1 bed ridden day because I am so dumb I didnt drink enough water and was nasty sick!) and been keeping to my 1700 calorie a day “lifestyle change”. I do feel 110% better from yesterday and Saturday night, but got a ways to go.

I will admit though, one of my fears of potentially losing a large amount of weight at a fast pace, I will end up with a bunch of gross droopy skin! I could probably handle a lot of different effects of my weight loss like smaller boobs (I say smaller because they aren’t that big to begin with), genetic kankles (possible discovery) or even keeping my pear shaped figure. But I know I would not be able to take it if I ended up having some nasty extra skin that I can’t get rid of because I thought it would be okay to get this big and have all this extra stretched out skin. GROSS!
