6 Years goes by in a flash!
My last entry was 6 years ago?! CRAZY! And I was complaining about weighing 146? If only I could have seen into the future to where I am today.
3 grandkids (with another on the way), 2 weddings (with another on the way), paying off a house,... Read more
Back to it
Wow! My last entry was almost a year ago! And I have gained a LOT of weight! I don't remember weighing 131. I am up 15 pounds from that at this time. A job change has me driving 55 miles twice a day, something I have substituted for my exercise ... Read more
Happy Birthday to Me!
Today is my 43rd birthday, and I am at 131 pounds. My oldest daughter just graduated from High School on Sunday, and life is very good! The weather is beautiful, Summer is nearly here, and I am hoping to stay motivated to clear our our CLUTTER! ... Read more
Final Weigh In!
Today was the final weigh in and I lost almost another 3 pounds. With the gain I had last week, my total loss for the 12 weeks was 18.7 pounds or 12.5% of my weight...GONE! I also lost 4% body fat, so I will call it a success.
Now, tomorrow... Read more
Weigh in #12?
Well, after a weekend of bingeing at the State Wrestling (club) Meet, with only fast food, junk snacks and NO exercise, I managed to escape weigh in with only a pound gain. The exciting news is that the Pound Plunge finishes this Thursday, so th... Read more
Weigh in #10?
I'm not sure what weigh in I am on...naughty naughty! But I did have a 2 pound loss today, for a toal of 18.1 pounds lost so far! I am now focusing on strength training to try and bring my bottom half in line with my top half. I believe I have a... Read more
Weigh In #6
Yippee! Down another 2.4 pounds in just a couple days! And some of the jeans I packed away I can button comfortably again. I still have work ahead of me, but I'm just going to enjoy this moment for a while.
This weekend I'll be at another w... Read more
Weigh In #5
Down another .7, so my ticker weight matches the CHI weight! The trouble is, now I can get back to Thursday weigh-ins, so I only have a couple days before my next one!
Took measurements this morning, but really nothing has changed except ma... Read more
Weigh In #4
Well, I did manage to lose another 1.2 pounds at weigh-in. The week has flown by an it's already time for my next weigh-in tomorrow! I have had a ravenous appetite this week, and although my home scale hasn't shown a gain, I fear I may have my f... Read more
Weigh in #3!
I had to do the alternative weigh in day today, because I was taking cheerleaders to a game last Thursday. Then I spent Friday and Saturday at a Wrestling Tournament with NO exercise and ALL fast food and hospitality rooms!
I still managed ... Read more
Weigh in #2!
We had our second weigh in tonight, and I lost another 2.8 pounds. I'm feeling okay about that because I have felt "FAT" this week, and didn't think I'd lose any! So, a total of 10.8 pounds in two weeks. I'll take it.
My goal continues to b... Read more
I said I would update my measurements, then haven't gotten around to it! These are from a couple weeks ago. I don't have the nerve to measure right now...I'm feeling a bit "stuffed" in my clothes.

First Weigh In!
We had our first weigh-in last night, and I lost exactly 8 pounds. It's funny, because I wasn't going to take my sweater jacket off, but I'm glad I did...and my clunky watch! It's a great start but now I plan to aim for 1-2 pounds for the next 1... Read more
Happy New Year 2009!
Happy New Year! I will repeat what I posted on a couple threads earlier:
Here are the gory details as I get ready to take on the 12 week Pound Plunge Challenge. I have also signed up for the Boot Camp here on Sparkpeople, to give me some va... Read more
Pound Plunge Take Two!
Ha! I have to laugh. I just re-read my post about the LAST time I was on the Pound Plunge. As I get ready to do it again, I am inspired by what I wrote last time. I DO remember how good it felt to be exercising all the time, eating right, and en... Read more
