Well, just like my half pound gain last week was kind of flukey, here I am just one day into my calorie cycling plan and I am already down two pounds. 😜 The scale is such a fair weather friend, lol. Don’t get me wrong, I am super happy about the change, but all this is a good reminder that weight fluctuates when it wants to. This does make me super glad that I stuck to my plan yesterday though. It was a “low” day (just 1100 calories) which felt kind of tough, since I am used to eating right up to about a 1400-calorie limit. I had some fairly intense cravings in the evening but ended up just going to bed early and now here we are.

The other new thing this week is that I’m intensifying my jump rope workouts by using an actual rope instead of a cordless one. It’s much harder, even though the rope I’m using isn’t weighted.

Well, I ate really well this week, did three solid workouts, but actually gained a half a pound. I know this means nothing in the grand scheme of things, and I also recognize that I am still within my weekly commitment goal, and I am super happy about both of those things. Plus, my health is really in a good place. But I do think I need to mix things up a bit to get my losses going again. I think this week I will try calorie cycling to see if that helps. I know that if I threw in some intermittent fasting it would probably be a great kickstart, but I'm just not ready to do that yet because I like breakfast too much. 😍

In the good news department: I am FEELING. SO. GOOD. I feel strong, thin, capable, healthy. And even though I would like to have seen a loss this week, I am still incredulous that I am consistently seeing a number on the scale that I only dreamed about for LITERALLY DECADES. Not only that, I have sustained it for several weeks, give or take a pound here or there. This is amazing.

So, onward! I am hopeful that by next week this time, I will be 154. I'm going to do my darnedest to get there.

I am grateful today! Weight is on point for my goal, and yesterday I ran a PR at my 5k running club. Even though I am trying hard to stay within a calorie deficit, I felt like I fueled myself carefully and adequately. I've also been continuing my jump rope workouts and this week I upped the duration from 20 minutes to 30 minutes. It still feels do-able. My weight loss is really slow though. I know it's because I don't have that much left to lose, but I really wish that I could get there already.

It is a really beautiful thing to go to a family bbq and not stress about the fact that the following day is a weigh-in. Last night we spent several hours at a cookout and this morning I weighed in at 156.5. I am so grateful. I spent YEARS OF MY LIFE afraid of what I would see in the scale immediately following a festive gathering. It is amazing to be free of that. ✨
