My BBM Journey: Day 45

Day 45 brings us to another weigh in and remeasure day. (Insert creepy organ music and ghostly cackles in the background.)

I jest. But really, these have not been as fun for me as they have for some women on the BBM Facebook page because my weight doesn’t change or if it does, it goes up. Now I could understand this if I was a tiny framed girl and was building muscle for the first time in my life, but I’m not and I happen to know I can absolutely lose at least 40 lbs. I have done it before, it CAN be done.

Going into today’s remeasure I kept my spirits up and my expectations low. I have let this day mess with my head before and then I forget how great I feel and how this is a lifestyle. After all, if we are doing our absolute best, being honest, bringing the intensity every time, eating the very best that we are able,  that is all we can do. If we don’t get the results we want at exactly the time we would like to see them, but we feel amazing and healthy and strong, then why stop? Why not just keep going and see what happens?

That is my attitude today and moving forward. I had thought about not pulling out the scale and the tape measure today because I am so afraid of being derailed by disappointment. Well, I’m not letting myself be anything less than PROUD of my hard work. There is nothing to be disappointed about here!

All that being said, I stepped on the scale this morning and was not surprised to see my weight was up by a few ounces. I also woke up to Aunt Flow, so I’m sure there is some bloat going on, at least I felt there was the last couple days and now it makes sense. Inspite of the bloat, I remeasured and was very excited to have lost 3.5 inches! Remember day 30 and how down I was because even the tape measure didn’t like me? Well today I saw my hard work has been paying off!

day 1 and 45

So, that is a total loss of 10.5 inches since the start of 2.0 and that is just nothing to sneeze at. I’m sure if I redo these measurements in a few days they will be even better.

So there you have it! Thank you to all of you who are on this journey, checking in daily, reading my posts and keeping me motivated and accountable. I have come to recognize a lot of familiar names on the BBM Facebook page and I love that everyone is so helpful and encouraging. Keep up the great work, everyone!
