Weigh-in 10/25

Previous Weight: 156.4
Current Weight: 155.6
Change: -0.8

Almost one pound down this week. Since I had a significant, 2+ lb loss last week I was only expecting about a half pound loss this week *smiles*.  Sunday is my bi-monthly measurement day, so I'm curious to see how that goes. 
Some of you may have noticed that I didn't post my weekly goals on Monday.  It's not that I forgot, it's just been a busy week.  I did them "in my head" which I'm finding isn't as effective as posting them here lol.  So here it is-
  1. Quit nibbling! (This is a repeat from last week, but the nibbling this week has been over the top).
Yep, just one focused goal for the week.  I could list all the goals from my previous weeks, earlier bedtime, new healthy recipe, cook at home, evening walk w/family etc. but I really need to focus on the nibbling thing.  Part of the problem is my meal timing has been wonky which means I've let myself get too hungry with no plan for the upcoming meal so I grab a bit of this or that...never a good idea.  The other piece is that I'm relatively comfortable at 155 lbs and my clothes fit so some of the urgency is lost.  It's not that I don't want to lose more, because I do, but hey, I can throw my jeans in the dryer on accident and still wear them lol.
Being aware of this "comfort zone" is a big step. Can't change what I don't acknowledge :) So, the focus is now on getting into the 140's.  I'm going to conservatively set a timeline for Thanksgiving.  4 weeks to lose 5.8 lbs(which would put me at 149.8).  That's a 1.5 lb loss per week...healthy and attainable and on point with how I've been losing lately.
I do have one other little bit of info to share.  I had a fantastic NSV this week. For the first time in several years (since I got pregnant with #3), I was able to break an 8 min/mi pace on a 3 mi run.  7:54/mi actually.  Woo-hoo!

This is a great post full of great news! Omg I'm a serious nibbler. My problem is usually the kids foods. Cheddar bunnies and pretzels get me everytime :(

Hey Tiffany,

Congrats on the pace!! That's an awesome pace- I'm well jealous!!

I've slipped into the comfort zone too!! My goal is 143, I'm at 148 and I just can't get away from it!! :-( I upped then exercise, lowered the carbs, increased the protein, varied my breakfasts and dinners and still! nothing! :-(

We have a bank holiday here this weekend, so I am going to try and behave as much as I can - but after that thankfully the weekends are nice and quiet until the 17th of November - then I have a party to go to, and a dress in mind!

Some times I look back at times when I did much less exercise and lost more - and wonder, but to be honest, I'm not that bothered as the exercise makes me happy at least!
