I gained last week and I was upset but realized it is part of the weight loss journey. I pouted for about 10 minutes and then went on with my day.
I didn't go and binge. I didn't give up. Instead, I kept eating healthy and going to the gym throughout this week.
Monday, was a great workout for me. I went to my dad's high school and worked out their. I started on the elliptical machine for 25 minutes but I really didn't like the elliptical style he has in his weight-room compared to the one I work out on at my regular gym.
I then proceeded to run on the treadmill.(I would just like to say that I have been kicking ass on the treadmill lately). I ran a mile increasing the speed and incline constantly. After I was done running the mile, I decided to do some interval sprints and jogging for another mile plus.
After that I really wanted to get some lifting in because I stopped lifting awhile ago and wanted to shock my muscles again. Just as I started to lift my sister came over to me wearing a weighted vest. It was 25lbs. She gave it to me to put on.

That's only 25lbs too. I lost almost two of those vests. I was carrying that on me and no wonder I was having trouble breathing going up a flight of stairs.(I am sorry for that body, please forgive me.) But getting back on track, my workout was the bomb. I ended up burning 1000 plus calories, so it was totally awesome.
Now, getting to the goods. Weigh-in. I stepped on the scale and I am officially in the 180's!! *Throw confetti in the air*
I lost 2.4 pounds today, which puts me at 189.8 pounds. A total loss of about 41 pounds total since starting at 231 pounds.
I am jacked! I don't even know the last time I was 180 some pounds, but I am finally in it and I cant wait to keep this going. It was a long road to get to the 180's but I am not stopping here.
Believe in yourself and you can accomplish your weight loss goals. Just remember to have some patience.
