A Big Loss This Week

Wow! This week was the best week I've had in a while when it comes to eating well, working out and losing weight. I went to the gym twice already and plan to go tomorrow morning with Nick, too. I ate within calories most of the days this week and, I lost most of the weight I gained while my sister was in town for two weeks.

Here's my most recent weigh-in's:

11/17/17: 234.3 
11/24/17: 238.5 - sister's in town
12/1/17: 242.2 - sister's in town
12/8/17: 236.2

While I am not down to the weight I was at before my sister was in town, I am down 6 pounds this week! My goal for December is to maintain a weight of 230 - 235 to get me into the new year and I think this is a very realistic goal for me right now!

While this week was an awesome week on the scale, I will admit, I think this weekend is going to be hard to maintain my weight. We've got Lifegroup tonight {pizza}, a Christmas party tomorrow {free drinks + dining}, and we are getting together for our final CORE class at our pastor's house on Sunday {lasagna}. 

There's a lot of yummy food headed my way this weekend and, I'm not going to spend all of my time at these events trying to stay on track. My main goal for my weight-loss journey is to "lose weight while living life" and this weekend, I'm going to be living it up {and drinking lots of water to help balance it all out}.

I don't believe in putting your life on hold to lose weight. I tried doing that many many years ago {avoiding social events, etc.} and, it's just not worth it to me. I'd rather lose the weight slower if it means that I get to spend quality time with my family and friends. Especially this time of year!

Next week, it's back to business!
