Motivation to the Hilt!

OK, so I had my weigh in last night. I was so stressed about it (with good reason) and overall “officially” I lost about 1lb. I always use my scale at home for any actual numbers, but as the doc uses her scale that’s the “official” weight! She is the more important tracker, afterall!

Anyway, even though the number was low, she was still really proud of me and told me I was her “star patient”. Woo! Of course, she could say that to ALL her patients, but she is really nice and I get the feeling that she doesn’t. I am consistently losing and well motivated so she is always impressed with me and my attitude! Things like that are always super nice to hear and make me feel so much better. So even if I feel like I’m not doing great, she does and that’s important.

I mentioned I was going on holiday in May and December and she warned me to be careful, which is definitely worth keeping in mind! She also mentioned a woman who went on holiday for 3 weeks and when she came back she had put on 21lbs. Whoa! That’s a pound a day! I most certainly will NOT be doing that.

My motivation is really peaking lately, with Majorca in May that means bikini! In December we are going back to the States and I will be seeing my family and friends. Most I haven’t seen since the last time I was over 2 years ago, but then there are some I won’t have seen for nearly 6 years! When I mentioned to her about seeing them again she said if I keep it up I will be drastically thinner and so different to how I am now!

That is so what is keeping me going now! I want to be able to go to the States and see everyone and shock them all with how amazing I look and how much I have changed.

I’m quite glad it’s Friday and this weekend will be good. I have a party to attend tomorrow and I’m looking forward to it! (That’s a new feeling for me, let me tell ya!) Then we are off to see Slumdog Millionaire on Sunday and have a meal, like a date. I love when Hubby and I do that it’s really nice. 🙂

I have vowed not to buy any more clothing until I’ve lost another stone and I should then be another size smaller (if not 2!). I’m quite hoping to meet that goal before we go on hols, so beginning of May.

Tonight I have to do strength training and my run, the last one of Week 3 but I will probably end up repeating this week as 3 minutes of running is still a bit of a struggle sometimes!
