As excited as I am about this development, I am also wondering ..... why?
Why, all of a sudden, for the first time ever, has my weight dropped significantly 4 days in a row?
I am (again) working on a 'decluttering' project that has required spurts of hard work - but it is not like I'm getting my heart rate up for 30 minutes or anything 'crazy' like that! However, I have been working harder (physically) than is normal for me. Not stiff muscles hard work, but certainly an increased level of activity.
My eating habits have not changed....
I'm not drinking more water......
The only other thing that has changed is that I have added a "diet" green tea in the last 7 days. The directions say to drink it twice a day - I never remember to have the second cup, but I've been having a cup with my breakfast. (I'm not a hot beverage drinker, normally)
Could the tea actually be making the difference? I only ordered it because:
- the first 2 weeks worth of tea were free with the ability to cancel any further shipments
- Drinking green tea was part of Lyn's Habit of the Week challenge
I guess we'll see if I continue to lose or at least maintain this loss once the big project is done with and I'm back to my normal level of activity.
Of course, Hubby is on his way home today.....that means I won't be 'forgetting' to eat supper.
(But then, NOT eating never makes me lose weight.....eating enough of the right foods is what does it for me)
I have reached a stalling point in my project.....There are 2 pieces of furniture left in the room I am clearing out.....both are too large to be moved by one person. Before I can conutinue putting things back into the room, these 2 pieces must be removed. Then, I need a couple bookcases moved in. I reached this point yesterday and if Jim wasn't on his way home last night, I would have called one of my boys or my nephews over to help me. As it is, my sweetie and I will do the grunt work ourselves. When I am finished, I should have an organized, usable office/craft room but that is a story for another post.
For now, I am so happy to be this close to 200 lbs!!! Even if my weight bounces up a bit, once I've "seen" a number on the scale, I get back to it quite quickly.......I might be the turtle in this journey, but I'm getting there!
