Time for my weekly weight loss results!

AND I’m either at the same weight as last week OR I lost 3 more pounds. Why am I so unsure? WELL…my scale has usually been saying I am 3 more pounds than what the doctor’s scale is so on the weeks I am not weighing in THERE, that’s how I figure the weight loss. Last week, the doctor’s scale said the SAME exact thing as my scale, so…I’m at a loss. I’m honestly fine with either results, although 3 more pounds down IS exciting. Even being at the same weight is still better than weight gained, right?

I guess the MAIN reason I am fine with either result is because of my new measurements. Since last month, I am down 7 1/2 more inches! woohoo! After seeing those numbers, I can look at myself in the mirror and seem to see a difference, too! So if you remember how many inches I lost last month, that’s 14 1/2 inches lost TOTAL since about 2 weeks after I started when I began measuring myself. Over a foot total I’ve lost throughout my body! Very exciting and for some reason, that makes me happier than even the 31 pound loss! Is that crazy? I don’t know, but it makes me want to jump up and down right now!

Sorry for my exclamation happy self today. I have 19 more pounds to go and 2 1/2 months before Christmas…Do you think I will make it? I sure will be trying and I hope so! See you all next week for more results and have a nice rest of the day!!!!!!! 🙂



Welcome!

As always, you may answer these questions in your own post or in the comments section!

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. What album/cd/download are you embarrassed to admit you have? You might as well embrace your craziness, right? I still own all my Spice Girls, Britney Spears, N*sync, Backstreet Boy, etc. Cd’s and I STILL listen to them sometimes and sing along….hey, it’s nice to travel down Memory Lane at times! 🙂

2. What’s the one thing your spouse does better than you? He is better at doing sales over the phone and talking on the phone in general, I hate talking over the phone, it’s just not my thing.

3. When do you start buying Halloween Candy? I don’t give out candy to Trick or Treaters at our apts., we don’t really have many people that come by anyways and I don’t buy much of it, except rarely and just a small size for me and/or my husband…..Since I am trying to eat healthier, pretty much the only Halloween candy around will be his

4. Family closets – Yay or nay? Me and my husband share a closet and I guess I will say NAY, just because I would prefer my OWN but you don’t always have that choice so it’s fine sharing for now 🙂

5. Which home/cleaning chore do you hate the most? Why? Washing dishes…they are my nemesis which is why I try to get my hubby to do this for me as much as possible…I seriously wish I had a Dishwasher in my house, as in a PERSON who just washes my dishes, cause we have the machine……

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading? “The Traveling Vampire Show” by Richard Laymon

What did you recently finish reading? “Night Class” by Tom Piccirilli

What do you think you’ll read next? One of my Kindle books maybe…I sure have ENOUGH of them to read! LOL



After a HUGE 7 pound drop last week which was a GREAT Birthday gift, this week I am down 1 pound. A small number, but exciting none the less. I’m good with 1 or 2 pound losses when a bigger number could be 2-3 weeks away again, right? I can be a sneaky modern Tortoise who creeps along until the Hare falls asleep and then I fast track myself ahead 100 meters so when he wakes up, he remains cocky and sure of himself, unaware that I am ahead of him. I like that analogy. 🙂

This weekend, I will be doing my 2nd measurements since the starting ones and I am super excited to see how many more inches I have lost. I really think this is key for me because I have trouble visually seeing a change in my own body other than if clothes fit different, you know? In fact, I think anyone who has spent a majority of their life overweight tends to NOT see themselves as skinnier than before UNTIL they gain a lot and look back in time. I remember getting down from 320 to 250 years ago and I felt different, but I still felt humongous. Everyone would tell me I looked so good, but I just couldn’t see it. Fast track to gaining a bunch of weight back and I look back and say, “Wow! I really WAS smaller then!” Funny how our eyes can be blind to see what everyone else sees.

For some reason, the number on the scale doesn’t make me realize this. Maybe it’s because of how much I do weigh. I STILL see a big number so I can’t see that I might be smaller in certain places of my body. BUT when I see the inches I have actually lost, I realize, “Hey! I might not be seeing this, but people ARE telling me the truth cause I can see for myself in numbers that I HAVE lost some inches.”

So, here’s to seeing a lot of inches magically vanished like our car keys every time my husband sets them down somewhere! Next Monday I will let you know the news on that front and the pounds side of things! Until then, if you see Mr. Hare, tell him to just quit right now, because I am winning the race and he is going down! 🙂
