Weight Loss: Valiant attempt with little result

We have one pound!  Ok ok...that's not like scream it from the rooftop kind of progress but it's still progress.  Besides, I didn't get to this weight overnight.  And I know that.  It's just a hard pill to swallow.  A friend of mine made that comment recently about his weight loss.  It's really a great reminder though.  Great to hear but sucks to hear.  I am just not a patient person.  I want to wake up tomorrow and poof!  Skinny!  But if that did happen, I don't think I would stay skinny.  This is the best way to do something.  I need to earn the body I want.

Weight:   204.5 lbs  Today at 8:05 AM

Measurements:  14.25" neck, 38" waist, 47" hips

Highest weigh-in to date:  243.5 lbs on 3/11/2008 (The day I went in to labor with Aiden)

Weight goal:  144 lbs (Last seen in High School when I was running and watching what I ate)


  • Broke out the Zumba Fitness for the XBox Kinect.  Made it through clearing a bunch of the steps for a 25 minute workout before I felt my legs felt like they'd give out.
  • MyFitnessPal has been going good!  I love love love how it tells you where you'll be in 5 weeks if you keep that progress up!
  • Water.  Lots and lots of water.

And please...if you want to do this with me, I will gladly add you on MyFitnessPal so we can encourage one another!
