Weigh In

I weighed in last night hoping to have redeemed some of that surprising weight gain from last week. Apparently, a week of nerves, busyness cleaning my house, and the relief of my husband being home to stay paid off in the weight loss department.

I lost 5.6 pounds!! And, I finally hit the 30 pound mark!! And, I officially weigh less than I did on our wedding day!!

Wow! This is a big week for me.

Now, realistically, I know some of that was water weight. I was definitely expecting a loss for that reason alone, but I didn't expect that much.

I am pleased that we have not been eating out too much. I think Major knows he has plenty of time to eat his favorite foods now, there is no rush to get to all of them this week. This new development will be good for my waistline.

My goals for the week:

  • Increase activity.
  • Continue drinking lots of water
  • Decide what I am going to eat before we go out
Updated Stats:
Starting weight: 188.4
Today's weight: 156.6
Total loss: 31.8

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I can't imagine being lighter than when I got married because that's the lightest I'd ever been -- and I've since had two kids -- but I'd sure like to get within 10 pounds of that weight!
