I guess this is the momentum that everybody was talking about... I ate well for most of the week and got a good amount of exercise in. And, the results rock!! I lost 2.8 pounds this week. I am officially under 195 (194.8 to be exact)!!
With that loss, I have lost a total of 5.2 pounds in 5 weeks. That's slightly behind schedule. But, with the new found momentum, it looks like I might be able to get down to 190 by the end of 8 weeks after all. I have to lose 1.6 pounds a week for the next 3 weeks. That's more aggressive than I'd like, but I think it's doable.
One last note... I am now officially under 10 pounds to go to my original goal weight (185). Not sure that is where I'll stop, but that is a great feeling!!
