I mentioned on Thursday that I was a bit upset with the scale. It's not moving. I'm doing the right things and it's sticking at 151. As much as I want it to drop into the 140's, it seems to be perfectly content at 151. I did some serious thinking yesterday and decided I need a little break from the number based obsession. My sanity depends on it. Funny enough, two of the standards by which I am judging myself, BMI and weight, are somewhat flawed. Technically until I get under 150 lbs I am still in the overweight category for BMI. That bothers me... even though I know it shouldn't.
As a solution to the problem I did two things. First, I decided not to actively pursue weight loss for the rest of the month. As in I am not stressing about LOSING. If it happens, fine, but if not that's okay too. I upped my calorie goal slightly on MyFitnessPal. While it's still set to a deficet, it's not as low as before. I will continue eating healthy, logging my food and exercising. Ripped in 30 is working great. I'll also continue to take my measurements every two weeks and we'll see what happens.
The second thing I did was take some new pictures. My 155 lb picture in the side bar is from over a year ago. Time for an update. I also wanted to show off the fact that I am wearing a size 4 jean now!! It's hard to be pissed off at a stupid number on the scale when I'm fitting into a size 4.
Hope you are having a great week!!
