I just submitted my week 4 weight loss and I'm pretty happy with the number. Not ecstatic, but satisfied. I'm losing at a steady rate, which is good. I've been afraid of hitting a plateau and I'm glad it hasn't happened. I probably could have had a bigger weight loss this week, but I keep having to remind myself that more than "dieting", I am living. There are days where I just can't seem to fit in a workout as long as I want and there are times that I do say yes to that little piece of chocolate calling my name...um, actually, yesterday I said yes to a few peeps, a few pieces of chocolate, and McDonald's for lunch... It's part of life sometimes. I'm not suffering and straining myself to lose weight, I'm not "fad dieting"... I'm eating better and exercising, so I just have to let the weight come off at the rate that my body wants it to, and so far I'm happy with that rate. I'm just ounces away from having lost 15 lbs since the challenge started, and I'm 1 lb away from being 20 lbs lighter since January.
I'm just barely at the lowest weight in almost 3 years and it feels good.
