Day 29

Weigh-in: 234.4 (-4.2 pounds)
BMI: 35.55

WOW! Down 4.2 pounds! This is really exciting for a couple reasons. 1) BECAUSE I LOST ANOTHER 4.2 POUNDS! 2) Because I felt I really pushed myself this week with exercise, and 3) Because I'm really feeling better about myself and what I'm doing.

While I did end up drinking last night (and eating some not-so-healthy foods), I still managed to stay under my daily calorie goal, and made sure to NOT overdo it on alcohol.

Another exciting thing came about this week in that I LOST ONE JEAN SIZE! I'm now officially down from a size 20 (which, let's be honest, those size 20 jeans were tight) to a size 18! I still have a long way to go, but seeing progress helps.

Speaking of seeing progress, I feel like I'm actually seeing a difference in this week's pictures (posted below).

One of the big things that has been helping this week was bringing back some of my old marching band exercises. Arm circles, ab lifts, and marking time to my old shows while holding weights comparable to when I played baritone has been a fun, nostalgic way for me to burn some calories.

I think that's all for now. Hopefully going to play laser tag with some friends today!
