Hold on a second, before celebrating I decided I would make one more trip to the dungeon to compare. As I suspected, the scales are off a little, it turns out I actually didn't lose any weight this week. However, I didn't gain any weight either and I'm happy that I don't need to go into the dungeon anymore. For me this is what I consider to be my first weight loss milestone.
The happy morning news was enough to pull me out of my doldrums and I'm happy to report I was right back on track following my plan today. I also got a lot of exercise in as I was laying floor tile in my bathroom. It was important for me to get back on track today; tomorrow is my unrestricted day and if I went into it with 4 straight days of poor eating, who knows how bad Sunday would have been. Now I'm excited about tomorrow as we have a hike planned and I can enjoy my unrestricted day without the guilt of being off track.
So now that I hit my first milestone, what's next? That's easy, if you remember when I hit day 90 I said I'm trying to get under 300 by day 180. Well that's my next milestone; I need to get under 300, preferably by day 180. That gives me 75 more days to drop 28 pounds. One milestone down, on to the next but only one day at a time.
