Am I really committed?!
I had my official weigh in this morning and I lost 1 lb. (from the 1.6 gain from the previous week). In the 7 weeks of my "Back to Goal" push, I have lost 6 lbs. and 9 inches. Normally I would be pretty excited about these numbers, but the fac... Read more
ended with a 1.6 lb. gain! I decided to take Friday off and our office was closed on Monday for President's Day. Again, I know I didn't eat 7,000 extra calories, but the combination of being off schedule and lack of exercise probably accounted... Read more
Good Weigh-In and Challenges
I'm pleased with my weigh in this week, especially after the 2 lb. gain overnight on Sunday!
I lost 1.6 lbs. and another 1.5 inches. That's 7.4 lbs. and 9.5 inches in a month. That's a great first month and I'm on track to be back at goal... Read more
Week 3 (sort of)
Last Wednesday started Week 3 of the meal replacement shakes, however, I ran out of the powder last Monday, so have gone 7 days without the shake (the delivery is coming in today). DD#2 & #3 were also making a smoothie in the morning, so it did... Read more
Week 2 of Meal Replacement Shakes
Week 2 went pretty well. I lost .8 lb. I was hoping for at least 1 lb, but I'll still take it! I also lost an additional 3 inches, so in 2 weeks it's 5.8 lbs. and 7 inches. Not bad!
I feel pretty good too. I have more energy and am not... Read more
The "strange" eating habits at my house
First of all let me say I am still doing well with the meal replacement shakes (or smoothies). I peeked at the scale this morning and I'm down .4 lbs since Wednesday. Not monumental, but I'll take it. I can definitely feel a difference in my ... Read more
my weekly loss is 5 lbs.! I'm thrilled - 19.8 lbs to go! Which sounds better than 20+. I also lost 5 inches which I'm even more thrilled about! 1 inch around the waist which is good because I have my health assessment next week for DH's insu... Read more
Pretty good weekend
I mentioned last week that I started a meal replacement shake with DD#2 to help her with nutrition and weight loss. Although tomorrow is my "official" weigh in day, I've been using the shake plan for 7 days now, so I thought I would comment. I... Read more
My new plan and motivation
As I mentioned before, I have a new motivation to get back to goal (20+ lbs). I've blogged in the past about DD#2 playing sports. She's been a multi-sport athlete for over 8 years and 3 years as a high school athlete which includes year round ... Read more
It's been a long time . .
It's been a long time since I blogged. It was last year! I'm still 20+ pounds over goal. I'm not real thrilled about it but I haven't given up my goal to get back to goal. To say I've "tried it all" is an understatement. A little back story... Read more
I finally weighed this morning and I lost 1.4 lbs. so that was pretty good. I guess just cutting out all of the extra snacking helped.
I went running yesterday after work and did ok. It was a great evening, about 60 degrees and a nice bre... Read more
Plan of Action?
I made my weight gain confession last week and was determined to start my "plan of action". I still don't have a "plan", but I am doing better.
I'm eating pretty healthy, getting in 6-7 servings of freggies, drinking my water, sticking to ... Read more
Confessions of a Weight Gain
So it's official, I am now at my highest weight since 2010 (before my 46 lb. loss at Weight Watchers and finally reaching my goal weight). I'm still below that weight, but now have 20+ lbs. to loose.
How did this happen? There are several... Read more
New season (hopefully of change)
Autumn officially started yesterday and it's been really nice in North Georgia. This morning it was 55 degrees and I had to wear a jacket while walking the puppy!
I blogged a couple of weeks ago that I was "back on the grid", but I'm not r... Read more
Back on the Grid
I've been off the "weight loss" and "healthy living" grid for a couple of months now and I know I've had some weight gain. I know if I don't hold myself accountable, I'm only going to "allow" myself to continue on this path of unhealthy snackin... Read more
