Weigh In Day & Motivation to Lose the Final 10!

Posted on: February 6, 2013

I lost 2.2 lbs and that puts me exactly ten pounds from my goal weight.  I want to lose that as fast as I can to be past the weight loss stage and into the maintenance.  I wonder how much of it I can lose by the end of February?  I feel like December and January were a bust in my weight loss journey, but that is my own fault.

IMG_1908I have always said a weight loss success depends on getting body, mind and spirit all in alignment.  I have been missing the mind part these last few months.  I had been so miserable at my weight the entire time I was gaining.  It stands to reason that I would find some peace during the weight loss journey.  That is where i have been in my head.  Loving the changes that I see in my body. No longer feeling disgusted by it.  I  know it’s not exactly where I want to be , but it sure beats where I was!  Some day soon I’ll show you before pictures….


I was in a comfort zone and so proud of my progress, even though I  knew there was more work I wanted to do.  I got sloppy in tracking what I ate.  Don’t get me wrong I was doing it in my head, but that is not the best way and things sneak in easier… That wasn’t all, I wasn’t exercising on a regular basis.  I did it when I felt up to it. In all fairness having the flu and sinus issues in January didn’t help with both tracking or exercising.  I wan’t too alarmed because I did gain between Christmas and New Year’s but lost it from the flu.  I gained from PMS but knew that was fleeting and now I am down a pound from that.  


If I had been gaining I would have gotten back on track pretty quickly, but maintaining was not something to motivate me to change and do the things necessary to lose the final pounds.  I am totally focused and ready to kick it into gear and will be tracking and exercising for the next few weeks because I have the best motivation... We are most likely going on A trip to the Cayman Islands at the end of the month..  I have to put on a Bathing Suit!!! 

Dear Readers, I don’t care if I lose all of the last ten pounds by the end of the month, I just care that I do a lot of muscle and toning work and eat right.  Have any of you ever struggled to lose those final pounds?  Anyone else stall in their journey, liking the progress you made?   Any of you ever been to the Cayman’s and have recommendations?  

Linking up with What I Wore and Get Your Pretty On

Gratitude:  I am grateful to my hardworking husband whose sales success is making this trip possible.  I am grateful that even after a cancelled deal that took him out of the running , he became even  more determined and that he pulled it off on the final day!  I am grateful that I have my head back on straight and am ready to finish this journey.

I am so happy for you and how far you have come. You look absolutely amazing in this outfit. You are wearing that awesome animal print jacket you thrifted too! Best of luck in losing those final pounds, you can do it 🙂 Heather

Thank you, just a correction this jacket is not one I thrifted, but one I stalked from Metrostyle….

Congratulations on your weight loss! There’s nothing like getting back on track and seeing progress to motivate you!

I absolutely love your look today!

I think you might find this interesting about DYT and how to choose your animal print.

It’s always those last 10-15 lbs that gets me. I’ve lost weight almost to goal many times, I can never get all the way down. Having lost 20lbs so far, I just came down off a terrible plateau that was making me very discouraged. I’m back on track now and feeling encouraged my today’s post. Thanks Tracey!

Yes, the first 20 was easiest.. Stay on track and let’s see results together!

You look great Tracey and you have the right mind set for reaching your goal. Any yay for the Cayman Islands!!! Thanks for linking up this week. I love your animal print.

Thank You!,, Thanks for hosting!

Great outfit and I know you will succeed in your weight loss!

thanks, now to get busy finding outfits to pack, exercise, home school and plan for the week I”ll be gone and do extra blog posts for my children to put up for me… would love a haircut and eye appt as well!!!

Tracey I love this outfit! I know everyone’s saying black and white is the “trend” this year, but I love how timeless the combination is.

You look very upscale chic in this gorgeous black and white ensemble today, Tracey. Congratulations of your terrific loss and good luck with the remainder. A trip to a tropical island sounds so exciting! Have fun!
