Jen's Weigh-In

Tiff and I never really established how we were going to do this, so here goes!

My first goal for this game was to lose 4 pounds by today. That means that this morning the scale should say 245.8. Well, this morning I saw this:
242.4??? HECK YEAH! That's a loss of 7.4 pounds! I must say, I am perfectly ok with being an overachiever this time. My brain actually had trouble registering this number as correct this morning. I weighed myself twice! Lol.

I am especially proud of my success because I kind of had a rough week during the second half of the goal. I had lost 6 pounds before my "Oops" post. After that I had a few emotionally low days and one day where I didn't make it to the gym or workout at home at all, and I had one day where I really just didn't care about making healthy eating choices (it was a very bad day). But I am proud of myself overall. I think there was a time where that sort of personal discouragement would have made me want to give up entirely, or I would have been really hard on myself which would have led to giving up anyway. This time, I accepted the fact that I didn't do my best the day before but that didn't mean I didn't get another chance to do better. If I can maintain that healthy attitude, I think I really do well this time.

I know Ms. Tiffany has already met her goal, I just don't know to what degree! I have her gift all ready to go off in the mail tomorrow. Hopefully she fills us all in on her awesome progress soon!
