I am very happy to be part of this link-up, #FitnessFriday. Thanks to all of you who commented on my OOTD post. You guys are so good at encouraging me. I think all of you told me to keep the shirt. So, I am keeping it. The shirt is a size XL, and now I am wearing Medium sizes with no problems. I am still working on losing the last 5-10 pounds. I say 5-10 because it keeps going up and down. I feel like one week I am 140 pounds, and somehow, depending on what's going on during that month, the next week I am 145 pounds. When I started this journey, my goal was to lose 35 pounds by June 25th, my birthday. June 25th is a few weeks away, and now I am having doubts about how I am going to finish this race.
The picture on the left is a screenshot from Instagram. I lost the original picture when my computer got attacked by a virus. I weighed 178 pounds when that picture was taken. Now I am 145 pounds. I still have 10 more pounds to go. And unless I go into starvation mode, I don't know how I am going to make that happen. I already eliminated wine. I don't eat pasta. I exercise 4-5 times a week. I drink more water than the legal limit. I think the legal limit is one gallon. I am just kidding. I don't drink that much water. As a matter of fact, I hate drinking water. But I do drink water when I feel hungry, just to make sure that my mind is not playing tricks on me. My body is probably retaining the water, since I don't drink enough; maybe that's why I see 145 pounds when I get on the scale. So anyway, that's where I am at right now. Tania told me to try to tone up on my last fitness post. I am trying, Tania! I am really trying.
