I’ve only managed to lose another pound in two weeks. It’s totally my fault though. I missed an entire week of the gym because I was sick. I’m better now and I was so happy to dance in Zumba this morning. I also have strayed very far from my diet. My husband and I tag teamed a chocolate ganache cake for a party we hosted. Luckily it was mostly eaten by our guests, but I have eaten too many of the leftovers. That’s just one thing, but for the past 2 weeks I haven’t really cared about what I’ve been eating.
So anyway, my parents are coming to visit in a little over 3 weeks. I originally wanted to do an 8 week thing, but now I have more motivation for my weight loss. My new goal is to lose 6 pounds by the time they come. Is it realistic? Yes, but not probable. I think now that I have a reason I can really work harder and have a strong motivation. I’m actually going to cut calories now. I need to track my food and keep a close eye on what goes in my mouth. Honestly eating a strict vegetarian diet and going to the gym has been enough to lose a pound a week, so now if I pay close attention to my food I could maybe lose 2 pounds a week.
I’m not doing this so I can impress my parents. I just think that with a deadline I can work harder. It’s nice to have an end in sight anyway.
Well, wish me luck!
