So I have to report that this week has not been the greatest. After losing weight consistently for the first two and half weeks, I am still yo-yoing since my monthly visitor. My current weight is 140lbs though it was 138 yesterday. I wish I got a picture of that :(
The good thing is that I feel so much better about myself. In the picture above, taken soon after I arrived in the US in March 2009, I was wearing one of my old dresses, one I bought back in Edinburgh when I was still tiny from study and part-time job stress. I was already adding weight back then and after that, I haven't worn that dress, which is almost three years. I tried it on last weekend and though it was a bit tight, it was more like a slinky look. I kept preening in front of the mirror, lol...
I think I can comfortably look forward to sunnier weather, and the thought of dresses, shorts, beaches and bathing suits. I do still have some ways to go as regards the weight loss. I want to lose more inches around my waist and tummy and see if I can get to my ideal weight of 135. That said, I am very happy with what I have accomplished so far.
The Bouari Weight Loss programme was a great incentive for me to take my weight loss seriously and stop procrastinating and I have to say, I'm proud of the 14 pounds I've lost. I have also learnt a lot from the meal plans and calorie counts in the booklet to enable me eat healthy. With the end in sight, and running out of the advantage spray and energy support, I have to make sure that I remain motivated. Working from home, it is really important for me to continue on this healthier regimen.
What do you guys suggest I do to keep motivated?
