Weigh in day

Guess what...

I had a nice loss this week! I am down 2.8 pounds from last week, and a total of 17.6 pounds! I feel good! Tomorrow I am getting pictures taken, and I am starting to feel a difference in how my clothes are fitting. The weight is coming off rather slowly, but like I said before- this is a lifestyle change, it's not a diet. I am altering the way I eat for life, not trying to get down to the lowest number I can get to and then scratch my head and say, "now what?"

My neighbor told me yesterday she could tell I had lost weight. She asked me what I was going to do to reward myself when I got to 20 pounds down. I kind of laughed at her. I know I have worked hard, but not as hard as some of you bloggers out there! I read some of your blogs and you have consistent losses every week. You persevere and you make no excuses. Here I am, every other day writing about how I cheated. ha! It's kind of humorous to think about treating myself.

 So this is what I've decided to do, after 30 pounds down I am going to get a pedicure, so all you dedicated bloggers don't have to look at my nasty toenails on the scale anymore. I consider it a community win.

Pictures tomorrow!!

Good luck with your weight loss endeavors. You motivate me more than you know.


  1. That's awesome!!! My clothes are a bit loser too, but I'm definitely not needing to go buy new outfits or anything. How about you?

    Do you only get on the scale only weekly?

    I get on the scale obsessively. But I only log my "official" weight once a month.

    1. No, I'm not down a pant size yet. I just have some extra room in the pants I have now. I do weigh once a week, occasionally I'll just peek but I try not to worry about the numbers too much. I keep track more of how I feel and how my clothes fit.

  2. Last week you had no loss, but I suspect maybe you were just holding a little water. Over the last 2 weeks you've average 1.4 pounds/wk. That's a real good pace!

  3. Great job TG, you are so right, it's a life style change and not a diet that is what we should aim for.

    PLEASE get the pedicure NOW, you deserve it plus, I get grossed out by the sight of your toenails ha ha ha just kidding, I couldn't care less.
