So I weighed in yesterday morning and was 2 pounds down which is really a net loss of 1 pound because of the previous week's upswing. I'll take it any way I can get it! At this point I am fighting for every ounce that I can coax off of my body! All the experts say that the closer you get to your goal weight, the harder it is to shed pounds. A very smart friend told me that the researchers have found that the body needs to feel safe in order to let go of weight. An interesting time for me for sure!
I recalculated my BMR. At my current weight, I can have 1,400 calories a day in order to loose 1 pound a week. I am on it!
Yesterday Allen and I went to watch my friend and trainer, Kathi, in her 1/2 Ironman. We followed her on the 13.1 mile run course. SHE WAS AMAZING! As she crossed the finish line, after swimming more than a mile, riding her bike 56+ miles and runnung a half marathon, she was smiling and looking strong! It was fabulous watching the more than 2,500 runners. There was every type of athlete. The challenged athletes were by far the most inspirational. I was glad we went to see it all!
Desire to stay the course, dedication to be true to yourself and discipline to train for the long haul 'cuz you will need it!
