I’ve been thinking for a little while about whether to share some photos with you. Yes, I might be able to hide behind my laptop, I’m not even showing my face in these photos but…well… I guess these are probably the most revealing photos so far of my weight loss journey. More about that in a moment as it’s time to quickly look at this week’s report card.
What’s Erika done well this week?
- I’ve lost another 1lb. In fact, I feel like I’m retaining so much water today so it’ll be interesting to see if anything happens on the scales over the next few days
- My BMI is in now in the 33s
- I bought a kettlebell…. I just need to learn how to use it now!
What could Erika improve on?
- I always feel compelled to write something here but I’m going to give myself some slack and tell myself I’ve done okay this week 🙂
Erika’s next target(s):
- 3 lbs until I’m weighing less than 100 kg
- 24 lbs until I’m in Onederland (yes, I’ll be less than 200 lbs)
- 26 lbs until I’m no longer obese as I’ll be overweight
Okay, it’s time for photos! So, although I’ve lost most of my weight between February and July, I decided back in July to try on a pair of jeans that I last wore in 2013. Whilst I don’t normally hold onto clothes I can’t get into, I loved these jeans and perhaps always held onto the hope I’d one day get back into them. Once a month, I’ve been trying these on. Back in July, I could barely get them above my knees… and this was already having lost about 70lbs. Last week, I could almost do up the button… if I pulled the material! Victories aren’t only the number we see on the scales. It’s moments like this when I can reflect on how I’m making huge strides with my body.
As soon as I can get that button done up, I’ll be straight on here sharing this with you!
Later this week, I’m going to share photos of what I’ve been eating but, in the meantime, please feel free to share your own weight loss successes, frustrations or whatever’s on your mind ❤
Love Erika xx
