I was not looking forward to today's weigh-in because I've been bad a few days and haven't worked out even once this week so I was expecting a gain if anything! Well, on the contrary I lost 4.2 lbs this week!!!! YAY YAY YAY!!! I'm down to 255.6 so that's a total of 9.2 lbs lost in 3 weeks and I'm only 3.8 lbs away from my 5% goal!!! I could seriously jump up and down and dance a little happy jig! :O) I've been noticing the last few days that my normally snug fitting clothes have been fitting better and I've actually worn 2 pairs of pants that I haven't been able to wear for quite awhile but tried to brush it off because I didn't want to be disappointed if the scale said I gained weight! I know I have a measuring tape around here somewhere and I even looked at Walmart today to see if I could buy another one (no luck) because I want to keep track of inches I'm losing! I'll dig deeper tonight to see if I can find it...if not, I'm off to JoAnn's tomorrow to buy one! One thing I have to share is that my hubby has been doing this along with me. He doesn't go to meetings or weigh-in there but he's been looking at my books and eating better and weighing in at home on the same nights I weigh-in and he's lost just about as much as me. He hasn't weighed in yet today because he's still at work but he told me yesterday that he was able to tighten his belt up one more notch! YAY FOR HIM!! It's so much nicer having him do this with me! He only wanted to lose 35 lbs so I have quite a bit more to lose than him but since we're changing out eating habits, this will be a life long adventure for us and he says he'll keep up with it right along with me! Talk about great support! The Lord really blessed me when He picked Josh for my husband!
Alright, I'm off to get ready for hubby coming home from work and then we're off to buy produce and have dinner! Thanks for all the encouragement and support ladies, YOU ROCK!!!!
