Anyway, like I said, I felt pretty good last night after my run. So good, that I had a great feeling that I was going to wake up in the 230's once again this morning. It was funny because I was a little nervous this morning, while making my way to the scale. I had weighed in at 239.8 lbs on Saturday morning and was very excited to finally break through that 240 lb wall. However, for whatever reason, I ended up going back into the 240's on Sunday and Monday morning. This weight shift could of happened based on numerous reason but I did not let that get me down. So I vowed that my goal of breaking into the 230's and staying there was going to happen very soon. And guess what my friends, I made it back to the 230 lb promised land this morning! I actually weighed in at 239.0 lbs, which now brings my total weight loss count, for the time being, to 63 lbs since the start of my mission!
Of course the weight loss and reaching this goal for the second time has got me pumped up and extremely motivated. But it was looking at my front shot picture from last night, that really made me happy. I actually noticed my progress a little more then I usually do. My stomach is looking a smaller, my sides look like they have shrunk a little, and I look a little taller then I did a few months ago because my posture is looking a lot better. Now for those of you who don't know me, I am my own worst critic and being able to notice the positive improvements in my physical features is huge. I also took my picture viewing session a little further and compared last night's photo to my Day #1 front shot photo. And I know it is not the first of a new month but I wanted to share with you all what the comparison looked like last night.
