Weigh-In … 2nd Mini Goal Reached!

Today’s Weight: 170.0
Loss/Gain: – 2.5 lbs.

First, let’s take a minute to celebrate …

Not only did I manage to lose 2.5 pounds this week, but I also reached my second weight loss goal that I’ve been keeping track of down at the very bottom of my blog.  When I started this journey I broke my weight loss goal up into three parts – 30 pounds each – and this past year (after getting so close to this goal a year ago) I wondered if I’d ever see that ticker get down to 171.

Well, today I not only made that goal, but I surpassed it by a pound.


It’s been a busy, crazy week for me and part of me thinks that may be why I lost so much for one week.  If you know me at all, my habit has not been to consistently lose from one week to the next, much less in amounts over a pound or so.  However, I have to take credit for this loss, because while every day has been chock full of to-do’s I still managed to do a few things that are ever faithful to help the scale go down:

  • I exercised.  
  • I drank my water instead of filling up on extra coffee, diet soda or tea with splenda (which I tend to do a lot.)
  • I was careful about my food choices, even when I was in a hurry.
  • I got my rest.  I do think that a busy week with little sleep might not have been beneficial, so I made it a point to get to bed at a fairly decent hour every night..even if there was more things to be done.
Yes, it is amazing how a few simple things help the scale move.  🙂  
Another thing I get to do today, due to reaching this goal, is share updated progress pictures for you.  You’ll have to excuse the lack of makeup in the most recent picture.  I go to the gym after taking my kids to school and have gotten over the embarrassment of being seen in public without makeup (makes my makeup last a bit longer too, not having to do it twice everyday.  LOL) After seeing the picture I think next progress pic I’ll do my face first…some of our barns just need that little bit of paint.  🙂

As always, thank you for checking in!  I’m off to get myself ready for another busy day.  Have a great weekend!

Oh, and in case I don’t have time to get back here before Sunday…don’t forget to tell your mom you love her this weekend.  If she is no longer with you, maybe you can give a hug to a woman in your life who doesn’t have her children nearby or who has been a blessing to you.  
Love you, Mom!
