There are so many updates to talk about, as there has been much success in the last few weeks. Today I am going to talk about the Spring 4th Quarter Challenge that Aman and I had in place. I talked of Excitement and Anticipation - my goal to try and loss another 20 more pounds, Aman's goal to raise his Writing grade to a 3, if not a 4 all in a 11 to 9 week process. I feel like the goals were accomplished. Not only did Aman raise his grade into Writing, but he was able to raise his grade in 4 other aspects of his report card. I am really proud of him. I did not, however, reach the goal of 20 pounds. I hit a plateau for over a month, but did not get discouraged. I am working hard, harder then I have worked before on the weight loss process, but in the long run I could say that I have not worked hard enough. BUT, I am not getting down on myself. And I am NOT saying that I do need to work harder. I am doing this and that is what matters to me at the moment. Just the fact that I am actually watching what I eat, avoiding the fast food locations, trying new vegetables, doing the exercising and dropping more pounds in 15 years is an accomplishment in itself! I am proud of what I have done so far. Sooooooo - drum roll - I lost another 17 pounds. The official weigh-in day said that I was down a total of 37 pounds. Not quite a total of 40, but I am doing GREAT!!! We are going to award ourselves with that weekend trip to Santa Cruz sometime this summer. Yes, I know the bet was that we both had to achieve our ultimate goals, but I do feel that we both worked hard, made a huge effort and that is what matters the most.
Have a great weekend!! Hoping that mine will be productive and accomplished!
