OH MY GOSH I DID IT!

YOU GUYS! I DID IT!

I reached my weight-loss goal for October!!!

I weighed in at 224.7 lbs this morning.

Not only did I reach my goal of getting down to 225 lbs. on the scale, by doing so, I reached a couple different milestones in my weight-loss journey.

First -- this means I am at the lowest weight I have been in 10 years. A full decade has passed since I have been at this weight, and I am back! 
Second -- this officially means I have lost a total of 45 lbs. in my journey to lose 100 pounds!!!

The small goals I set for myself this month in order to reach my weight-loss goal were quite simple, and they were things I've practiced throughout my entire weight-loss journey. The only thing different really is that I began scheduling in more time for self care. Could something so simple really have been the missing ingredient in my weight-loss journey? I think this breakthrough in my weight-loss journey really can be attributed to many different things but, I am definitely not overlooking to importance self-care has played into this month!

October's Weekly Goals:
  • 120 oz. water daily
  • 1400-1800 calories daily with 1 rest day/week
  • 10,000 steps or 30 min. activity 3 days/week
  • Schedule self-care weekly

I am taking a deep breath, now. I am so proud of myself for maintaining a healthy balance this month. During the week, I stayed on track and, over the weekend I would have a rest day (or two). I went out to eat with my family. I had chocolate every day. I made it to the gym a handful of times. I didn't deprive myself, but I did stick within moderation. You guys, I did it!
