Optifast week 10

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

I didn't want to blog today. But am forcing myself. Life has become insanely busy and trying to find moments to blog has become sparse. 

If you follow me on Instagram you will know last week I posted I was down 45.4. And then changed it to 48.4. Because after a bunch of us weighed in they said something was wrong with scale. A bunch of people weren't down weight. So they "fixed it" and now everyone was down 3 more pounds. So great. I was down 8! Turns out scale was correct the first time. So last week I was down 45. And now I'm down 47. That's not a very big drop. I'm pissed. And it's stupid. Because in the grand scheme of things I'm doing amazing. I know this. But it's such a mind fuck when you live by numbers. And I hate that. So once I hit 50 lbs I won't be posting weekly pounds lost anymore because the numbers are starting to control me. And that's not good. 

I also worked up the courage to post a before and during. This is a different version in same shirt. 7.5 weeks between these photos. Crazy right. ?
This is what I need to focus on. And my blood pressure being down. Not the stupid scale. It's so hard not to though. 

Anywho Zumba kicked my butt tonight so I'm off to bed.

  2. You are freaking amazing. I am cheering for you loudly. Rock on, Nicole!

  3. That is amazing! You are doing great, and yes it's hard to not let the scale control you, but good for you for recognizing it!

  4. Oh my goodness! You are working so hard and it's definitely showing! Regardless of what the number is, you have something to be really proud of!

  5. Crazy, is right! I am frustrated with my scale, too...maybe it is a conspiracy of some sort? I am doing 21 DF workouts, eating better, moving, moving, moving all day and have gained weight. Not nice. You are consistently moving in the right direction...down. Looking super!
